Elysium Health is a growing consumer science company in the health industry. The company was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente. In addition to serving as the chief scientist of Elysium Health, Dr. Guarente is the director of the Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT.
Exercise plays a big part in our health as we age. But many people sit at a desk all day doing their job and don’t get enough regular exercise as a result. If you are one of those people, try implementing an exercise regimen that includes both resistance and cardiovascular training as part of the routine.
Supplements can also be a great way to maintain your health as you age. Elysium Health makes a supplement that is designed to support your cellular health by increasing levels of NAD+ in your cells. NAD+ is an essential coenzyme to many of our cellular functions like DNA protection, energy creation, circadian rhythms, and hundreds of others. As we age, the levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. Increasing NAD+ supports those functions.
Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. Each jar of the supplement contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30 days of recommended daily intake. Individual jars sell for $60 each. But a standard monthly subscription to Basis decreases the cost to $50 per jar and prepaying for a six-month subscription lowers it even further to $45 per jar.
Elysium Health is in the process of developing new products that focus on the microbiome, cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. These products are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
