When Dr. Leonard Guarente first started seriously pondering the idea of founding his own direct-to-consumer science brand, one of the main ideas that drove him to explore the idea was the knowledge that the general public has little idea of exactly how far the state of aging science has come in the last few decades. The world-renowned MIT professor had dedicated his career to investigating the effects and mechanisms of aging, so he decided to personally work to create a product that would help people support their well-being and be widely available to the public.
Applying the Science
One of the most fundamental ways in which people can ensure that they live out their golden years in the best health possible is to optimize their cellular well-being.
To support cellular well-being, Dr. Guarente and his team at Elysium Health created Basis, a daily supplement that is proven to increase the levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is an important coenzyme that helps with crucial cellular functions and Basis increases the levels of it in our cells. This, in turn, supports our cellular health and ensures that the crucial cellular functions continue operating at their optimal levels.
