Elysium Health Enters Supplement Industry with Exciting New Product

The nutritional supplement industry has been growing at approximately 7% per year over the last decade. Now a $30 billion per year industry, the dynamic sector is posting record gains, even as many other legacy industries struggle to stay afloat.

Into this vibrant mix has jumped Elysium Health, one of the newest entrants to the supplement space and a company that is committed to doing away with the bad rap that the nutritional supplement business has garnered. Founded by an MIT professor and leading researcher Dr. Leonard Guarente, Elysium Health is predicated on scientific methodology and credible research. The company has more than 30 of the world’s leading aging process research scientists behind it and has developed internal procedures that are, by far, some of the most highly structured and rigorous in the industry.

A new kind of supplement from a new kind of company

With research and science behind it, Elysium Health has brought its first product—Basis—to market. The supplement consists of two precursors to a critical molecule used by the body in many cellular processes, from energy production to circadian rhythm regulation to metabolic processes. Basis uses a compound known as nicotinamide riboside. In conjunction with a resveratrol-like anti-oxidant called pterostilbene, the chemical acts as a powerful precursor to the compound NAD+, which stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.

By simply making available the basic ingredients by which the body synthesizes its own NAD+, Basis provides a highly efficient means for people to significantly increase the levels of NAD+ circulating in their bodies. These increased levels of the substance then affect the aforementioned cellular processes.

The Effects of Basis

Elysium Health is not shy about pointing out that increased NAD+ levels in those whose levels were subnormal previously. These findings are supported by the clinical trial that Elysium funded earlier this year to prove the efficacy of Basis. Participants who took the supplement for four weeks saw an average increase of 40% in their NAD+ levels.

As Elysium Health continues to develop new products, the successes of Basis are cause to watch their product portfolio carefully. Basis is available for purchase on the company’s website.
