With Elysium Health, Dr. Leonard Guarente Brings Safety, Efficacy, and Accessibility to Supplements

The nutritional supplement industry has been marred by scandals and scams of varying degrees of seriousness in the last several decades. But Elysium Health is seeking to stand out as a company in this industry.

Elysium Health was founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente in 2014 with the mission to create clinically validated health products that work. Working together with world-class scientists, the company is translating advances in science and technology in order to help people live healthier, longer.

The company’s first product, Basis, is a daily supplement that is based on more than 25 years of prior research. The product is able to significantly boost the levels of a crucial coenzyme NAD+ in our bodies. The supplement has been clinically proven to increase levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent in humans.

NAD+ is essential to many of our cellular functions like energy creation, DNA protection, and circadian rhythms. Over time, as we age, levels of NAD+ naturally fall. This leads to a gradual breakdown of our cellular functions. But as Basis maintains higher levels of NAD+, those functions can continue performing at more optimal levels, supporting our cellular health as a result.

Basis comes in individual jars, each of which contains a 30-day supply of the supplement. A single jar costs $60, but monthly subscriptions to the supplement decrease the cost per jar to between $40 and $50.

Although Basis is the sole product that Elysium Health currently sells, the company is in the process of researching more products. The company is developing new products that focus on cognitive health, muscle function, and skin health. These are currently in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
