There’s no cure for aging. Aging is a byproduct of birth. Everyone ages, but some people do it more gracefully than others. Most people know that they can’t escape the downsides of aging.
The wrinkles, hair loss, organ malfunctions, and constant exposure to free radicals are part of life. Some people accept this reality. But others want to fight the signs of aging and body breakdown.
Dr. Leonard Guarente is the director of The Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging Research at MIT and a co-founder of Elysium Health. His extensive research on aging has yielded revolutionary findings on the aging process. Among them is the key role of a coenzyme called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+. NAD+ is central to the function of SIR2, a gene that’s part of an important class of longevity-governing proteins called sirtuins. Without NAD+, SIR2 does nothing.
According to Guarente’s research, the body’s levels of NAD+ decrease as the body goes through the aging process. This results in the telltale signs of aging that most people try to avoid. Most of the people who experience those signs don’t think they can stop or alleviate them. But with Elysium Health’s Basis, people can more proactively mitigate the aging process.
Basis is a supplement composed of just two ingredients: nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, two naturally occurring, organic precursors to NAD+. Taking two capsules per day helps aging cells reproduce, and it also helps new cells perform their jobs. Elysium Health doesn’t make silly claims about the effectiveness of Basis.
Instead, the company stands behind the clinical trials that show that Basis has the ability to mitigate some of the deteriorative effects of aging.
