Basis is the first supplement created by Elysium Health. Basis works to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is an essential coenzyme that helps with energy creation, DNA protection, circadian rhythms, and many other essential metabolic functions. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. (Read How To Be Preventative About Your Health)


The formula for Basis is based on more than 25 years of aging research. The supplement is clinically proven to increase levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent. Basis also undergoes third-party testing for quality. The supplement is gluten-free, nut-free, vegetarian, and vegan, allowing you to stick to your diet while taking Basis.


Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. A six-month subscription to Basis costs $270 ($45 per month) and a one-year subscription costs $480 ($40 per month). An ongoing monthly subscription costs $50 per month. You can also buy an individual bottle of Basis for $60.


Elysium Health is also developing new products that focus on the microbiome, cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. These products are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
