Elysium Health: Re-envisioning Health

When it comes to personal health, a lot of people have set themselves goals to be healthier. To achieve that, we set ourselves the goal of eating less junk food and exercising more frequently. Indeed, exercising frequently plus eating healthy are two great ways to improve your well-being, but supplements can help you even further (especially in specific areas like cellular health).

Elysium Health, a health company co-founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente, aims to help people live healthier, longer. Guarente serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT, in addition to being the chief scientist of Elysium Health. The company’s goal is to translate advancements in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.

The company’s flagship product is a daily supplement called Basis. This supplement is designed  to support cellular health by increasing and sustaining levels of NAD+ in your cells. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to many of our cellular functions. These functions include DNA health, energy creation, circadian rhythms, and hundreds of others. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline.

To back up the company’s claims, Elysium Health put Basis through a clinical trial in 2016. The results of the study, which were published in the online science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, demonstrated that Basis increases and sustains NAD+ levels in humans by an average of 40 percent.

An individual bottle of Basis costs $60; however, a one-year subscription drops that price to $40. An ongoing monthly option is also offered for $50. Elysium Health recently began to offer a new way to buy Basis as well. The supplement is now available in stores at the tech retailer b8ta. Pick up a jar of Basis while discovering other unique products at one of b8ta’s nine locations now until the end of June.
