Elysium Health makes a supplement called Basis, which is based on 25 years of aging research. The formula for Basis is based on 25 years of aging research and is proven to  and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. 

NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to many of our cellular functions, including circadian rhythms, DNA protection, and energy creation. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline. 

To ensure that Basis works as advertised, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. The study proved that taking Basis over the course of several weeks on a daily basis increased and sustained higher levels of NAD+ in humans. The results were published in the online science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.

Basis allows you to stick to your dietary needs and avoid dietary allergies because the supplement is vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and nut-free.

Basis can be purchased through varying levels of subscriptions, the most popular being a six-month subscription for $270, or $45 per month. You can also purchase a one-year subscription for $480, or $40 per month. A\ monthly subscription is $50 per month. For those uninterested in subscriptions, Basis can be bought in individual bottles.
