Here’s the Inside Scoop on Elysium Health and Their One and Only Product, Basis

Not everybody knows about Elysium Health or Basis – and that’s perfectly acceptable. However, in the event you don’t know much about Basis nor Elysium Health, here are several questions that, when answered, provide the basics about the company and its flagship product.

When was Elysium Health founded, and by who?

Elysium Health was created by a trio in 2014, consisting of two businessmen and one scientist. That doctor, Dr. Guarente, is employed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology – known in short form as MIT – one of the biggest, best schools in the entirety of the United States of America, if not the world, at large.

At MIT, Dr. Leonard Guarente works as the Director of the Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging. Thanks to Mr. Guarente’s experience and prestige, Elysium Health is able to hold true as a leader in the supplement industry.

And what does Elysium Health do?

Elysium Health’s primary mission is to help regular people live healthier for longer periods of time than they would without the organization’s supplements.

As to what Elysium Health actually does, it creates supplements to be used by adults to improve their overall health functions, cellular health, bodily functions, DNA health, circadian rhythms, and energy creation – also called metabolism.

What are some of the products that Elysium Health distributes?

Basis is the sole product that Elysium Health offers to consumers at this point in time. However, Elysium Health has more than a handful of products on its upcoming tray, although the organization wants all of them to undergo an independent, double-blind, randomized clinical trial to prove their mechanisms of action and their effectiveness.

What exactly is Basis, and what does Basis do?

Basis is a supplement that brings together the following six ingredients – the first two are primary ingredients, whereas the latter four are found only in the capsule, although they are still present in the supplement:

  • Nicotinamide riboside
  • Pterostilbene
  • Microcrystalline cellulose
  • Hypromellose
  • Vegetable magnesium stearate
  • Silica

The two active ingredients in Basis, nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, promote cellular health, DNA health, and perform other basic functions to help humans live healthier lives.

Nicotinamide riboside yields NAD+, shorthand for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Pterostilbene is a sirtuin – protein – activator that facilitates the may processes proteins are involved in. When these two compound are combined – believe it or not, sirtuins can’t be activated without NAD+ – cellular functions occur as normal.
