Basis

NAD+ Supplement

Live your best life with healthy cells. Basis supports cellular health by increasing and sustaining NAD+ levels and activating sirtuins.

Support Your Cellular Health

Scientists have made incredible progress in understanding how cellular health 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 levels decline as we age. Now it’s possible to get more cellular NAD+ with Basis.

Thanks to science, you can support your cellular health.

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.
