Longevity has, in the past few years, come to the forefront of medical research. The recent vigor is not misplaced at all; the capacity to understand the causes of frailness as human beings advance in age has troubled humanity for generations now. With technological advances in modern medical research methods and equipment, researchers have taken to laboratories to find solutions to the age-old problem. One such researcher who has dedicated much of his time to researching the question is Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente is the director of the Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging at MIT.
To bring products resulting from scientific research to mainstream consumers, Dr. Guarente founded Elysium Health in 2014. Elysium Health serves as the vehicle through which top-notch technological and scientific research products can reach the public. The company has established working relationships with world-class scientist from high profile research in various institutions such as Harvard, Cambridge, and Oxford. The network of scientists ensures the integrity and legitimacy of Elysium Health’s products. Its mission is to ensure people lead a long and enjoyable quality life through proactive health products.
In tandem with its mission, Elysium Health has transformed scientific research into a product known as Basis. Basis is a daily dietary supplement that works by increasing and sustaining levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). The coenzyme NAD+ is normally produced by the body to aid intracellular processes. Its work is to coordinate many cellular activities between the nucleus and other cell components. It is a basic requirement in processes such as DNA maintenance, energy creation, and circadian rhythm regulation.
As the human body ages, the production of NAD+ declines. The decline becomes the starting point of the breakdown of basic biological processes. Basis, therefore, seeks to restore the required levels of NAD+ in the human system. It does this by adding to the system two essential components known as nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene. The former is the sirtuin activator, and the latter is the NAD+ precursor. Sirtuin is responsible for longevity in lower organisms, and it functions best in the presence of NAD+.
On the safety of Basis, the supplement is clinically proven to work and has a backing of world-class scientists as well as a clinical trial. It is available in various plans comprising of monthly subscription that cost $50 and the more popular six-month subscriptions that go for $270. You can also get an annual subscription plan or buy a one-off bottle. You can always get more information on product availability at Elysium Health’s website.
