Time will prove the validity of this supplement, but time is ticking. I submit to you the first major commercial anti-aging supplement to be introduced by anti-aging research scientist since the inception of this blog.
BASIS BY ELYSIUM
Science has enabled us to focus on the cellular level to achieve optimal health, beyond what can be accomplished with diet and exercise. Basis is designed to optimize NAD+ levels and sirtuin function in our cells to support our most critical metabolic processes like cellular detoxification, DNA repair and energy production.
Basis exemplifies Elysium’s focus on providing direct access
to scientific breakthroughs in health.
The encapsulation of 35 years of research in a bottle.
For decades, scientists have been searching for answers to what internal mechanisms lead to ongoing health as well as health decline. This led to the discovery of a critical coenzyme called NAD+, which controls cellular communication, and sirtuin proteins, which play a key role in our long-term health. Sirtuin proteins require NAD+ to function, and our NAD+ levels naturally decline over time, leading to a decline in cellular health. With a focus on NAD+ and sirtuins, we can help to sustain their function over time and support the health of the building blocks of our body — our cells. This is the purpose of Basis.
Basis contains two novel compounds that support
the production of NAD+ and the activation of sirtuins.
“NAD is one of the most compelling bits of chemistry related to aging. Its presence in the body is directly correlated with the passage of time.”
- Nicotinamide RibosideNR
Nicotinamide Riboside Pterostilbene
The most direct precursor to NAD+. It is the most readily usable and effective building block for creating more NAD+ inside the cell. NAD+ plays a crucial role in regulating core metabolic functions including cell function, DNA repair and energy production. NAD+ supplies decline naturally with age, thus reducing a cell’s ability to function optimally and potentially impacting baseline health.

in adults from our 20s onward.

Elysium has been featured in prominent publications that have lent their perspective on our mission and first product.
“Elysium is taking no chances when it comes to scientific credibility. I can’t remember a startup with more stars in its firmament.”
“A new generation of commercial entities is beginning to explore opportunities for new types of interventions and services in a graying world.”
“Their new supplement – with the backing of some of the world’s foremost authorities on aging – could change how you get older”
“[Between] high-end prescription drugs and nutraceuticals…there’s this vast space in between that could be filled in a way that’s useful for health maintenance.”
“Leonard Guarente, one of the best-known anti-aging researchers in the region, and the roster of eminent scientists have formed Elysium Health.”
