Elysium Health’s first product, Basis, is aimed at increasing levels of NAD+ in humans. In a clinical trial conducted in 2016, Basis was proven to increase levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent in humans. The results of the study were published in the online peer-reviewed science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease,
NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to many of our cellular functions, including energy creation, circadian rhythms, and DNA protection. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down.
Basis is vegetarian, vegan, nut-free, and gluten-free, as well as free of any artificial flavors and colors.
Visit Elysium Health’s website to buy Basis. Each jar of Basis contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30 days’ worth of daily intake. As a result, the company sells the supplement in a variety of monthly subscriptions. A standard monthly subscription costs $50 each month. Longer subscriptions cost more upfront but offer discounts on the monthly rate.
