Elysium Health™ Recognized By The Good Housekeeping Institute For Innovation
Creator of Cellular Health Supplement Basis Earns Inaugural Good Housekeeping Innovation Emblem Recognizing Trailblazers that Raise the Bar for the Health and Wellness Industry
New York, NY (May 16, 2018) —Elysium Health, Inc.™, creator of Basis—a clinically evaluated supplement designed to support cellular well-being—today announced it has received the first-ever Good Housekeeping Innovation Emblem. This seal recognizes trailblazing research, initiatives, products, and organizations like Elysium Health, Inc.™, a life sciences company developing products based on aging research that push boundaries and raise the bar for both consumers and the health and wellness industry.
“The Good Housekeeping Institute is impressed with the level of scientific rigor and clinical research Elysium brings to the $133 billion dietary supplement industry that has otherwise-limited federal oversight,” says Laurie Jennings, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute. “Elysium collaborates with world-renowned international academic institutions to maintain the highest standards of practice, and their thought leadership is helping change the conversation in preventive health and wellness.”
Scientists at the Good Housekeeping Institute and senior-level members of the Good Housekeeping team worked together to establish criteria for the GH Innovation Emblem. Eligibility requires that companies develop cutting-edge solutions with the potential to change paradigms, disrupt industry standards, and enhance the lives of consumers. Earning this accolade, the latest in Good Housekeeping’s seal family, required that Elysium Health demonstrate brand excellence through a rigorous commitment to research, quality, and safety.
“I applaud the measures Elysium has taken to ensure the purity and potency of their product Basis, which go above and beyond industry standards,” adds Birnur K. Aral, PhD, Good Housekeeping’s health, beauty, and environmental sciences director. Aral oversaw the vetting process for the Good Housekeeping Institute in collaboration with Jaclyn London, MS, RD, the Institute’s nutrition director. “From both a biochemical and epidemiological standpoint, the potential for Basis’s efficacy in maintaining and optimizing well-being as we age is tremendous,” London says.
Elysium’s Basis, the culmination of more than 25 years of aging research, is a daily supplement designed to support cellular function by increasing and sustaining levels of the coenzyme NAD+ in our cells. Research shows that cells need NAD+ for optimal function, but it declines naturally with age. Basis is the first product clinically proven to increase and sustain NAD+ levels, which is required for essential biological processes, including energy metabolism, regulating circadian rhythms, and supporting healthy DNA.
“Wellness is a hugely important topic to our audience—now, more than ever, they are looking for information on how to be healthy and have control over their bodies,” says Jane Francisco, editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping. “The Good Housekeeping Institute is proud to launch the Good Housekeeping Innovation Emblem with a pioneering organization like Elysium Health that is effecting change in healthcare and empowering consumers with promising solutions to increase health span and improve overall well-being.”
“As a company, Elysium Health is committed not only to rigorous scientific research but also to making science accessible to everyone,” says Eric Marcotulli, CEO of Elysium Health. “We have been incredibly impressed by the rigor with which the Good Housekeeping Institute assesses all applications for its seals and their commitment to earning the trust of their audience and helping consumers at large make well-informed purchases.”
Later this year, Good Housekeeping will open a new Wellness Lab within the Good Housekeeping Institute in partnership with Elysium Health. The Lab will showcase the latest health and wellness innovations that people can use to improve their everyday lives.
