Elysium Health is a consumer health company that is translating advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.
Elysium’s primary goal is to help people live healthier, longer.
Elysium Health was co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente in 2014. Dr. Guarente, director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging at MIT, has conducted significant research into the molecular and genetic causes of aging during his scientific career.
Elysium Health makes a daily supplement called Basis. This supplement is clinically proven to increase levels of the coenzyme NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is essential to many of our cellular functions like DNA protection, circadian rhythms, energy creation, and more. As we age, the levels of this coenzyme in our cells decline and those functions break down. By increasing levels of NAD+, Basis is designed to support those functions and our cellular health.

Basis is a vegan, vegetarian, nut-free, and gluten-free supplement, and t is also free of artificial flavors and colors.
Basis underwent a clinical trial in 2016 to ensure its effectiveness. The trial included 120 adults. The results demonstrated that people who took the daily recommended dose of Basis (two capsules) over the course of several weeks saw their levels of NAD+ increase by an average of 40 percent. The results were published in the peer-reviewed science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease. View More Information Here.
Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. Each jar of Basis contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30 days of daily consumption. Elysium also offers monthly subscriptions to the supplement. A standard monthly subscription costs $50 each month. Prepaying for a longer subscription decreases the cost to between $40 and $45 per month.
