Elysium Health is a consumer health company that was co-founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente, in addition to his responsibilities at the company, serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. The goal of the company is to translate advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.
Elysium Health makes a daily supplement called Basis, which is based on 25 years of aging research. Basis is designed to support cellular well-being, and isis proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our bodies. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to creation of energy, maintenance of DNA, and regulation of circadian rhythms, as well as hundreds of other cellular functions. NAD+ declines in levels as we age, and those functions break down.
To make sure that Basis works as advertised, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial in 2016. The study divided 120 people into three equal groups. Group one received the recommended daily dose of Basis, group two double the recommended dose, while group three received a placebo. The recommended daily dose of Basis is two capsules. The results of the study, which were published in the online science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, proved that Basis increases and sustains NAD+ levels in humans by an average of 40 percent. The clinical trial was double-blind and randomized in order to ensure the most accurate results.
