Basis by Elysium Health Making a Difference

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.

More About Basis

Basis is a supplement that is meant to be taken long-term on a daily basis. It is an affordable supplement that can be purchased as a monthly subscription, or it can be purchased individually. Basis is a true product of innovation, and it is been clinically proven to effectively increase and sustain NAD+ levels.

The Lung Institute Succeeds in Treating Chronic Lung Disease Patients with Stem Cells

For years chronic lung disease patients suffered gaining little relief when it came to treating their problems. Often treatments targeted the symptoms, which did nothing for the disease itself. The disease often progressed, living patients housebound and unable to do the simplest of task. But the Lung Institute took treatments in another direction by developing the stem cell therapy.

This is a minimally invasive procedure that helps patients take back their life. The treatment involves two methods in how it is delivered to the patient. It could be done by IV over a course of two days, or by bone marrow aspiration and then redelivered back into the body. The IV method consists of drawing blood and separating the cells from the other cells. Once done, it is reintroduced back into the body via IV. The second method is by aspirating bone marrow and separating the cells. With this method, you get a higher concentration of adult stem cells and the success rate is much higher. Once the cells are separated, the stem cells are reintroduced back into the body via IV.

According to their YouTube channel, how this treatment works is that the stem cells that are delivered back into the body via IV, goes straight to the right side of the heart. After a beat or two of the heart, it delivers the stem cells into the lungs. The pulmonary trap secures them in place and they start the regeneration process.

The Lung Institute is a treatment facility whose main goal is to improve the quality of life for patients that suffer from chronic lung diseases. They treat pulmonary diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, pneumoconiosis, bronchiectasis, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. They developed a stem cell therapy treatment regiment that has helped many long time sufferers of lung disease. After having treated over 3,000 patients, their success rate is over 70 percent in improving the quality of life for others. See,

The Lung Institute treatments use the stem cells that are taken from the patient’s body. According to, this makes their treatments safe because it is all natural. It doesn’t involve the harsh side effects that traditional medications and treatments give.
