Founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente Elysium Health is a health startup that seeks to provide people with ways to live their life healthier, longer. Dr. Guarente is a distinguished researcher who has conducted significant research on molecular and genetic causes of aging.
Elysium Health takes pride in its scientific approach to creating supplements. The company really strives to make sure its products work, and it does so by putting them through clinical trials to ensure their effects. For example, it’s first supplement, Basis, is advertised to increase levels of NAD+ in humans in order to support cellular health. In 2016, Elysium Health conducted a clinical trial, ensuring that Basis does increase levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent.
NAD+ is a key coenzyme in our cells that is essential to many cellular functions like DNA protection, energy creation, and circadian rhythms. As we age levels of NAD+ naturally decline in our bodies and those functions break down. Basis works to keep those levels high, even as we age, and supports our cellular health as a result.
Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. The supplement is offered in single jars, which cost $60 and have about a month’s worth of Basis. Monthly subscriptions are also available. Elysium Health will send you a jar of Basis each month for $50, or for between $40-45 per month if you pre-pay for a six-month or twelve-month subscription.
Basis is a vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free supplement, so it fits the dietary needs of almost everyone.
Elysium Health is developing new products that focus on the microbiome, cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. These products are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
