Elysium Health is a company that researches and produces supplements intended to help people live long, healthy lives – at minimum, live healthier for longer periods than they would without their supplements. Elysium Health was created by an establish scientist and two business people.
That doctor is Dr. Leonard Guarente, Director of the Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging at the ever-prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the world’s top universities.
What does Elysium Health produce?
To be more specific than the above indication of supplements, Elysium Health currently has one product called Basis, a supplement intended to support cellular health, effectively promoting overall health by extension.
While Basis is the only supplement the company currently produces, it has several others in the pre-clinical trial stage that are related to muscular, cellular, and stem cell health.
What is Basis?
Basis, a supplement with over 25 years of research behind it, is a combination of two central ingredients: nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene. Both must be in the presence of one another to work effectively.
How does Basis work?
The central mechanism of Basis is to create and facilitate the function of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a chemical compound that is naturally found in the body.
As humans age, their cells gradually contain less nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Rather than waving the proverbial white flag for mother nature, consuming Basis on a daily regimen allows its health-conscious users to live healthier for longer.
In short, Basis increases blood concentration for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide’s oxidized isotope, often shortened to NAD+.
In scientific, more precise terms, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide’s oxidized isotope helps transfer electrons through hundreds of natural cellular processes. After transmission, the compound turns into NADH, its reduced version. These natural processes occur back and forth, although pterostilbene is required to facilitate the transactions.
Pterostilbene is a sirtuin activator – sirtuin refers to proteins on the cellular level – that helps proteins move around in these regular cellular transactions.
What else does Basis contain?
Basis does not contain any other primary ingredients, although the capsules NAD+ and pterostilbene are contained in are made of four inactive ingredients. Basis is also vegan and vegetarian, allowing users of virtually every diet restriction to use the supplement to boost cellular health, circadian rhythm, and basic, overall wellness. It is free of nuts, gluten, and any and all animal products or those derived from animals’ bodies, excrement, or any of their processes.
Where can consumers find Basis?
