Our Health Is Our Greatest Wealth

In partnership with Elysium Health, we wish to highlight the importance of good health. In order to live a fulfilling life, there are certain desires that we all have. We want to be able to have a happy family life, we want to avoid poverty, and we want to be able to have good health. Out of those three listed wants, our health should be by far our most prized possession. If we are healthy we can basically accomplish anything, but when our health is not good, we can do very little.

Unsatisfied with our current lifestyle, many of us strive to be healthier individuals. We’ve all heard of needing to exercise frequently and stop eating junk food. Supplements can improve your health even further, after you’ve established good exercise and dietary habits.

On the Science of Aging

Dr. Leonard Guarente is an individual who has made the study of aging his life’s passion. Dr. Guarente is the director of the Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging Research at MIT. He has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging during his career.

Founded in 2014, Elysium Health is a direct-to-consumer science brand that was created by Dr. Guarente. The company translates advances in science and technology to create clinically-validated health products that work. The company collaborates with institutions such as Harvard, Oxford, and Cambridge as part of its research process.

The Supplement Basis

Currently, Elysium Health makes a supplement called Basis, a product designed to support cellular health. Basis increases levels of NAD+ in our bodies to support our cellular health. NAD+ is a coenzyme found in our cells that is required for many of our cellular functions, including energy creation, circadian rhythms, and maintaining DNA health. Our levels of NAD+ decline as we age, and those processes stop functioning. Basis increases NAD+ levels, supporting our cellular functions and our cellular health.

Elysium Health decided to put Basis through a clinical trial in order to ensure its effectiveness. Those who took the recommended dose of Basis during the trial had their NAD+ levels rise by an average of 40 percent and remain there for the duration of the trial. The results of the trial were published in the peer-reviewed, open access scientific journal, Nature Partner Journals: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.

Make Your Health Your Priority

We all know that good health is vital to a happy life, but we don’t all take proactive measures to ensure that our health will be long lasting. Regardless of our age, we all have the option to take great care of our health. Our health should really be our greatest investment because it’s the foundation of everything else.

Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. The company sells Basis in a variety of monthly subscriptions. An individual jar of Basis costs $60. To lower that cost, you can buy Basis in a variety of monthly subscriptions. A regular month-to-month subscription costs $50 per month. Prepaying for a six-month subscription brings the monthly cost down to $45, and prepaying for a twelve-month subscription brings the cost down to $40 per month.
