Elysium Health is a company that created Basis, a daily supplement designed to support cellular well-being. Basis is the culmination of more than 25 years of aging research by Dr. Leonard Guarente, the co-founder of Elysium Health. Dr. Guarente is a scientist who has extensively studied the sirtuins, a class of proteins that play a key role in regulating metabolic systems in response to stress and aging.
Elysium Health has teamed up with prominent academic institutions and universities including Harvard, Oxford, and Cambridge, to support scientific research and advance health. The company’s advisory board is made up of more than two dozen renowned researchers and clinicians, including eight Nobel Prize-winning scientists, who guide the direction of the company and its research.
What is NAD+?
NAD+ is a coenzyme that is found in our cells. NAD+is responsible for many essential cellular functions like energy creation, regulating circadian rhythms, maintaining healthy DNA.It became evident to Dr. Guarente and his associates that NAD+ levels decline as we age, and those functions can break down. This discovery led to the idea that increasing NAD+ levels could be a potential way to maintain long-term health.
In order to harness the power of this coenzyme, Elysium Health created Basis. This supplement contains two compounds that are able to increase levels of NAD+ by working together—nicotinamide riboside, a direct precursor to the coenzyme NAD+, and pterostilbene, a powerful and bioavailable polyphenol similar to resveratrol.
