Driven by a team headed by an expert on ageing research, Elysium seeks to service the broader health community with clinically trialed products for longer, healthier lives.
Wellness, according to medical researchers, is a product of healthy cells. But most people don’t know much about their cells. They know they have cells that support all their organ functions, but they don’t understand what their cells need to produce a body that functions like the fine-tuned natural machine that it is. In an effort to improve our own lives, many of us seek to be healthier. Our goals frequently include exercising more and eating less junk food. In addition to doing those two things, taking certain supplements can help you stay healthy, according to Elysium, a new startup making waves in the healthcare-supplements space
Elysium Health is a New York-based health company that is translating advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work. The company was co-founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente, director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Ageing Research at MIT. Dr. Guarente has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of ageing during his career. Elysium’s mission is to help people live healthier, longer.
The leadership team at Elysium Health seeks to serve the broader health community. Eric Marcotulli directs the vision as the CEO of the company. Before becoming the CEO, he worked at Sequoia Capital as its youngest partner to lead growth investing in mobile technologies. Eric earned his BA from Princeton University and his MBA from Harvard Business School. Dan Alminana works as the COO of the company, in charge of the operational and financial elements of Elysium Health, having previously worked in venture capital at JP Morgan Securities, where he launched and led its Silicon Valley venture capital coverage unit.
Based on 25 years of aging research, Elysium Health sells a supplement called Basis. This supplement works to increase levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ plays a major role in many of our cellular functions such as DNA protection and circadian rhythms. Our levels of NAD+ decline as we age, and those processes can stop functioning. Basis restores and sustains higher NAD+ levels and supports our cellular well-being.
To make sure that Basis works as advertised, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial in 2016. The results of the study, which were published in the online science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, demonstrated that Basis increases and sustains NAD+ levels in humans by an average of 40 percent.
To place an order for Basis today, visit Elysium Health’s website. Each jar of Basis contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30 days’ worth of daily intake. As a result, the company sells the supplement in a variety of monthly subscriptions. An individual jar of Basis costs $60. You can also choose from a variety of subscriptions to save money. A regular monthly subscription will save you 17 percent ($50 per month), a six-month prepaid subscription saves you 25 percent ($45 per month), and a one-year prepaid subscription saves you 33 percent ($40 per month).
Basis is vegetarian, vegan, nut-free, and gluten-free, as well as free of any artificial flavours and colours. Elysium Health is also developing new products that focus on cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. These products are currently in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
