The Study Of NAD+
Elysium Health’s first product is called Basis. This supplement is proven to increase levels of NAD+ in our bodies. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to creation of energy, protection of DNA, and regulation of circadian rhythms, as well as hundreds of other cellular functions. Our levels of NAD+ decline as we age and those processes break down.
To ensure that Basis works as intended, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. The trial showed that taking the recommended daily dose of Basis over the course of several weeks increased and sustained levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent in humans.
To purchase Basis, visit Elysium Health’s website. Basis is sold as monthly subscriptions as well as in individual jars. A standard monthly subscription costs $50 each month. Longer subscriptions cost more upfront but offer discounts on the monthly rate.
Basis is vegetarian, vegan, nut-free, and gluten-free, allowing you to stick to your dietary needs while taking the supplement.
