The New York-based health company Elysium Health was co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente in 2014. Elysium translates advances in science and technology to create clinically-validated health products that work.
Elysium Health relies on its scientific advisory board to guide its direction and research, which is composed of world-class scientists and clinicians. The company also partners with Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard to advance its research.
What is Basis?
Basis is a daily supplement designed to support cellular health; it is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+, a coenzyme that is essential for many of our cellular processes. Energy creation, as well as DNA health and regulation of circadian rhythms are all affected by NAD+. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline and those necessary functions tend to break down.
Is Basis Safe?
To make sure that Basis works as advertised, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial in 2016. During the trial, 120 people were divided into three groups. Group one took two capsules—the recommended daily dose, group two took four capsules, group three took a placebo daily. Participants who took the recommended dose of Basis saw their NAD+ levels increase by average of 40 percent and remain at that level for the duration of the trial. In order to ensure the most accurate results, the trial was double-blind and randomized.
What is the Cost of Basis?
Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. The company sells Basis in a variety of monthly subscriptions, as well as in individual jars. Each jar contains 60 capsules (the recommended daily intake is two capsules). A regular month-to-month subscription costs $50 each month. The most popular plan is the six-month subscription to Basis for $270, which breaks down to $45 per month. A one-year subscription is $480, or $40 per month. Individual jars cost $60 each.
