Elysium Health is one of the newer health startups in the supplement scene in the United States. It was founded by an MIT researcher Dr. Leonard Guarente, who has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging throughout his career.
The lack of regulation in the supplement industry has long wielded a double-edged sword. It has enabled some of the largest nutritional supplement producers to quickly bring new and innovative products to market without having to abide by rules imposed on medical drug manufacturers. However, this low barrier to entry and lack of oversight also attracted less-than-scrupulous players to the industry, causing it to become saturated with products of questionable value and efficacy.
Dr. Guarente saw this as an opportunity to create a consumer health company that would gain a high level of trust from its consumers and stand out in the industry. Elysium Health sells Basis, a daily supplement designed to support cellular health and optimization.
Basis supports cellular health by increasing NAD+ levels in humans. This coenzyme is essential for hundreds of vital functions that our cells are responsible for, like energy creation and circadian rhythms. Basis is able to increase the levels of NAD+ in the cells of its users. This is especially helpful for seniors because levels of NAD+ decline in our cells as we age.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. Monthly subscriptions to the supplement start at $50 per month, but discounts are available for those that decide to purchase a six-month or twelve-month subscription of the supplement.
Elysium Health has ensured that Basis is vegetarian and vegan, gluten-free and nut-free, and that it contains no artificial flavors or colors. Thus, even if you are on a diet or have allergies, Basis adheres to strict dietary restrictions.
