Backed by compelling research, Elysium Health wants to implement scientific discoveries into people’s everyday lives. The company’s goal is to help people live healthier, longer.
Elysium Health has used 25 years of prior scientific literature to better understand how to make a positive impact on human health. The first product that Elysium Health has created is Basis. Basis is a daily supplement, clinically proven to increase levels of the coenzyme NAD+. This critical coenzyme tends to decline in levels within our cells as we age, but it is critical to many cellular functions. So, Elysium Health created Basis for the purpose of maintaining NAD+ in our cells and supporting our cellular well-being as a result.
Apart from Basis, Elysium Health is also conducting extensive research on microbiome, cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. Their methods have created a calculated and methodical way of researching how products are beneficial to the consumers.
Elysium Health’s advisory board consists of world-class leaders within the scientific field. These board members help the company achieve a pioneering approach to creating products for people who want to sustain a healthier lifestyle.
