Most of us work at a desk, in front of a computer, which makes us strive to be healthier outside the office. To achieve that, we think about exercising more and eating less junk food. Indeed, exercising frequently plus eating healthy are two great ways to improve your health, but supplements can help you even further (especially in specific areas like cellular health).
The man that kicked it all off—Dr. Leonard Guarente—and his co-founders
Elysium Health is a direct-to-consumer science brand that was founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente, in addition to his responsibilities as chief scientist of the company, serves as the director of the Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. The company translates advances in science and technology to create clinically-validated health products that work.
The leadership team of Elysium cares deeply about health and wants to help the broader health community. The CEO of the company is Eric Marcotulli. Previously, Marcotulli worked as a partner at Sequoia Capital. He earned his bachelor's degree from Princeton University and his MBA from Harvard. Dan Alminana is responsible for all operational and financial elements of Elysium Health. Before, Dan worked as Vice President in JP Morgan's Venture Capital coverage group in Silicon Valley.
Elysium Health’s Basis
Currently, Elysium Health makes the supplement Basis. This supplement works to increase levels of NAD+ in our cells. This essential coenzyme is part of many of our cellular functions like maintaining DNA health, circadian rhythms, and energy creation. NAD+ declines in levels as we age, and those functions break down. Basis increases and sustains higher NAD+ levels and supports our cellular health.
A clinical trial for Basis took place in 2016. Those who took the recommended dose of Basis during the trial had their NAD+ levels rise by an average of 40 percent and remain there for the duration of the trial. The results of the trial were published in November 2017 in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Partner Journals: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health's website. Basis is sold as monthly subscriptions as well as in individual jars. A standard monthly subscription costs $50 each month. Longer subscriptions cost more upfront but offer discounts on the monthly rate. Basis is also available for purchase in stores of the tech retailer b8ta. Check out one of nine b8ta locations across the country and pick up an extra jar of Basis while discovering other unique products.
Elysium is developing new products that focus on the microbiome, cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. These products are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
