Elysium Health is an organization dedicated to the research and production of supplements to help humans live healthier lives. The group’s flagstaff product is Basis, a supplement that supports cellular health.
Basis is created from two molecules central to human life, particularly cellular functions on the microscopic level. These two compounds occur naturally in humans and many other life forms: nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene.
Nicotinamide riboside is a coenzyme that is present in virtually all living cells, both plant and animal. It helps transfer electrons throughout a variety of cellular functions – quite literally hundreds of them. Pterostilbene is a sirtuin activator, a substance that helps proteins – also called sirtuins – in the body work like they’re supposed to.
Nicotinamide riboside directly produces nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in the human body. While supplements that actually contain nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide don’t work well at pumping the substance into the cells of humans, those with nicotinamide riboside – like Basis – work considerably well.
Basis has been proven to work in clinical trials that were funded by Elysium Health. Few other supplements undergo clinical trials because they’re so expensive. However, because the professionals at Elysium Health were so confident in their assumptions, they were willing to spend millions on clinical trials that happened earlier this calendar year.
The clinical trials found that, when the ingredients in Basis were taken once every day for at least four weeks, the mean serum concentration of NAD+ rose an average of 40%. Patients that took twice the amount – that is, the recommended amount, or 500 milligrams of nicotinamide riboside and 100 milligrams of pterostilbene – of the combination of supplements had their average concentrations of NAD+ rise an average of 90%.
People that continued to take the mixture of supplements after the initial four-week period experienced a sustained rise in NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, for as long as they took the supplement.
Basis’ unique combination of supplements works so well because they must both be present in order to work in conjunction with one another – when they’re both present, their bioavailabilities both rise substantially.
Basis performs innumerable functions for humans that consume the supplement on a regular basis, although its central uses are to support regular health functions, improve cellular health, regulate bodily functions, maintain DNA health, and make sure a regular circadian rhythm established. Basis is also effective at increasing metabolism and creating energy for consumers to benefit from.
Elysium Health was founded by two entrepreneurs and a trained, licensed medical doctor. This doctor, employed by the esteemed Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is Dr. Leonard Guarente. At MIT, Dr. Guarente is the Director of the Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging.
