Elysium Health is a new consumer science company that was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente. The company works together with world-class scientists from universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard to help people live healthier, longer. Dr. Guarente himself has conducted significant research in the field of genetic and molecular causes of aging during his career.
To help him with the business side of things, Dr. Guarente founded Elysium Health together with Eric Marcotulli and Dan Alminana. Marcotulli worked in venture capital prior to becoming the CEO of Elysium Health. Alminana worked in investment banking and now serves as the COO of Elysium Health.
Elysium Health produces a supplement called Basis. Basis works to increase levels of NAD+ in our cells. This critical coenzyme is key to many of our essential cellular functions, like cellular respiration, DNA protection, and energy creation. But as we age levels of NAD+ decline in our cells and those functions break down. Basis keeps those NAD+ levels higher, supporting those functions and our cellular well-being.
Basis is vegan, vegetarian, nut-free, and gluten-free. This allows you to stick to your dietary needs while taking Basis, even if you have allergies or a strict diet to consider.
Basis has been clinically proven to increase levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. An individual jar of the supplement costs $60 and contains a month’s worth of capsules. A monthly subscription to Basis costs $50 per month. A six-month subscription is the most popular option that people buy, which costs $270 ($45 per month).
More information on Elysium Health, the company’s team, and the science behind Basis can be found on Elysium’s website.
