Elysium Health is an organization that designs, researches, markets, and creates supplements to help its consumers live better, longer lives. Elysium Health’s primary product is Basis, a capsule that includes nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, the combination of which helps promote NAD+ and stimulate proteins called sirtuins.
What is NAD+?
NAD+ is short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a substance called a coenzyme that is found in virtually every living cell, both human and non-human. NAD is found in two forms: oxidized and reduced.
As Elysium Health wants its customers to get the most they possibly can from Basis, its formulation of NAD is coined NAD+, the oxidized version of the molecule. NAD+ means it contains two extra electrons that NADH, its reduced form, does not contain.
What other ingredients are found in Basis?
The other primary ingredient found in Basis is called pterostilbene. It is naturally found in almonds, grapes, blueberries, and various other berries. Pterostilbene is medically known as a stilbenoid, and is closely related to the popular resveratrol, commonly used in makeups and supplements around the world.
There are four inactive ingredients found in Basis: silica, vegetable magnesium stearate, hypromellose, and microcrystalline cellulose, most of which are contained in its capsule. All of the ingredients in Basis are free of nuts, gluten, artificial flavors and colors, and substances included in animals or derived from their body parts or functions.
How is Basis consumed, and how much is recommended?
Elysium Health recommends adults to take two capsules each day, preferably in the morning. Consumers aren’t required to eat food while they take Basis.
Each capsule contains nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, its two active ingredients, in the amounts of 250 and 50 milligrams, respectively. Scientists as Elysium Health recommend adults take it over long periods, although abruptly stopping or missing a dose of Basis will not provide any adverse health effects.
How long does it take for Basis to work?
Clinical trials funded by Elysium Health have indicated that it takes as little as four weeks of daily dosage to substantially improve the availability of excess NAD+ in the human body – by an average of 40%. Using two capsules a day, four weeks of daily usage can bring an average increase of 90% availability of NAD+ in humans.
Basis, Basis, Basis – Where can one find it?
By logging on to their official website, of course.
Consumers can find one-off bottles of Basis for $60, or $1 per capsule. When purchased as a recurring subscription, Basis is only $50 per bottle. Buying a six-month subscription cuts the cost down to $45 plus shipping, whereas bolstering the body with a year-long supply costs only $40 per bottle of 60 capsules.
