When organizations are created and led by people who have deep, detailed, intimate knowledge of the causes they support, they’re more likely to perform more effectively, as well as make their consumers happier.
Elysium Health holds true to this sentiment.
Dr. Leonard Guarente helped found Elysium Health. Dr. Guarente works at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology at its Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging as its Director. This successful scientist founded Elysium Health alongside two astute business people, namely Eric Marcotulli, the company’s CEO, and Dan Alminana, the company’s COO.
What does Elysium Health do?
In simplest form, Elysium Health researches, sells, and distributes supplements. Currently, Elysium Health only sells one supplement – Basis.
Elysium Health aims to place all of its upcoming products through full-fledged clinical trials overseen by the United States Food and Drug Administration, one of the most rigorous for overseeing clinical trials in the entire world. As a result, the company is not able to release as many supplements as some of its competitors.
Elysium Health currently is in the initial steps of pre-clinical programs for cellular, muscle, and stem cell health, along with products to help the microbiome. Elysium Health is also on the precipice of entering the clinical phase for cognitive health, skin therapeutics, and skin health products.
Can you share more about Basis?
Basis contains two main ingredients that make the supplement – well – Basis. These two ingredients are both found naturally in the human body – not to mention in loads of other organisms across planet earth – and are known as nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene.
Basis is able to be purchased by the public and is safe for all adults without any known allergies to the six ingredients found in basis. The other four ingredients included in the capsule are free of nuts, animal products and derivatives, gluten, and anything that wouldn’t label it as vegan or vegetarian, and are completely safe to consume over long periods.
Nicotinamide riboside and pterostil–what?
Not everybody is an expert in the field of health science – and that’s OK. Nicotinamide directly yields NAD+, which is short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.
Pterostilbene is a sirtuin activator, where sirtuins are proteins naturally found in the many cells that make up the human body, that moves proteins with the help of NAD+.
Pterostilbene and nicotinamide riboside wouldn’t work without the presence of one another. However, when they are together, they work effectively at increasing the total level of NAD+ found across the countless cells and tens of organs in the human body.
