Anyone who has wondered about what the supplement Basis is all about is not alone. It comes from Elysium Health, a consumer health company co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Long before he co-founded Elysium Health, Guarente conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging. In addition to serving as chief scientist of Elysium, Guarente is also the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT.
Elysium works with a network of world-class scientists and clinicians from leading academic institutions including Harvard, Yale, and Stanford. These scientists guide the direction of the company and its research.
Basis works by increasing levels of a coenzyme in the body known as NAD+. This is a very important coenzyme as it relates directly to our cellular health overall. NAD+ levels decline naturally in our body as we age. In a clinical trial, Basis increased NAD+ levels safely and sustainably by an average of 40 percent.
It is easy to purchase individual bottles of Basis or a subscription plan via the Elysium Health website. Take a look at some of the subscription levels from the company’s website:
- Month-to-Month: $50
- Six Months: $270 ($45 per month)
- One Year: $480 ($40 per month)
The longer your subscription, the more money you’ll save. The six-month plan is the most popular at the moment. You can also purchase an individual bottle for $60.
