Elysium Health is a health product company that is best known for developing, testing, and distributing Basis, a vegan, vegetarian, animal-free supplement that promotes cellular health, among a wealth of other health benefits.
Alongside two experienced businessmen, Dr. Leonard Guarente, a practicing researcher, helped found Elysium Health in 2014. Their goal is to help people live healthier for longer.
Who does Elysium Health work with?
Elysium Health, just like its customers, is fortunate enough to have many of the world’s leading scientists and researchers on its team. One of these, Leonard Guarante, is more involved than others, which has been reflected in the efficacy of Basis.
Leonard Guarante is currently an employee of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he’s the Director of the Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging.

What is in Basis?
Basis only contains six ingredients – four in the animal-free capsule that contains the two primary ingredients, nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene.
The four secondary ingredients are hypromellose, vegetable magnesium stearate, silica, and microcrystalline, which are found in most supplements on today’s market.
How do the two primary ingredients contained in Basis work?
Nicotinamide riboside is a precursor to a coenzyme that’s naturally found in the human body, nicotinamide adenine diethylamide, which is found in virtually every cellular process in the human body, not to mention those of many other organisms.
Pterostilbene is a protein that’s also naturally found in humans, although it’s unable to be used by the human body unless its molecular partner nicotinamide riboside is present, specifically nicotinamide adenine diethylamide.
Nicotinamide riboside turns into NAD+, the short form of nicotinamide adenine diethylamide, once the human body consumes it.
How is Basis recommended to be taken?
The professionals at Elysium Health recommend the supplement to every adult without known allergies to the ingredients in the capsule – although nobody is allergic to nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, because both of them are naturally present in the human body. However, both chemicals are found less frequently in humans as we age, which results in the detriments associated with the natural aging process. Consuming Basis has been shown in clinical trials to promote cellular health.
Basis should be taken once per day, most preferably in the morning. Two capsules of the supplement are recommended to be taken, as the effects of 500 milligrams of nicotinamide riboside and 100 milligrams of pterostilbene – that contained in two capsules’ worth of Basis – have been to be more effective than in lower amounts.
