Change How You Age
Scientists have made incredible progress in understanding how aging works in the last 25 years, and one thing they’ve learned is that a molecule called NAD+ is hugely important. It’s indispensable for life, and we lose it as we age. Now it’s possible to get more NAD+ with Basis.
Thanks to science, you can change how you age.
How Basis Works
The culmination of more than 25 years of aging research, Basis is a proprietary formulation of crystalline nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene that supports cellular health by increasing and sustaining NAD+ levels and activating sirtuins.
From NR to NAD+
Your body has a natural process for turning the nicotinamide riboside in Basis into NAD+.
The pterostilbene in Basis activates your sirtuins, also known as the “guardians of the genome.”
Take a tour of the science and history that led to Basis with an animated explainer. Go even deeper with two stories that explain the role of NAD+ and sirtuins in aging.
NAD+: The Hardest Working Molecule in Biology
Scientists call NAD+ the “golden nucleotide” because it’s a key player in so many biological functions, like creating energy, keeping DNA healthy, and regulating circadian rhythms.
Basis Increases NAD+ Levels, Safely and Sustainably
Our double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial demonstrated that Basis can increase NAD+ levels by an average of 40 percent.
Setting A New Standard for Quality and Purity
Most companies that make health products source their ingredients from the lowest cost third-party suppliers, which often requires a trade-off with respect to quality. At Elysium Health, quality is first and foremost.
Our job is to figure out ways to counteract the deterioration associated with aging.
