Health supplements have long been a lucrative industry, as many individuals are very interested in trying products that can give them more energy and vitality. This basic human trait has led to a myriad of purported health products on the market that have largely overwhelmed many individuals who are looking for the right product that could produce the desired result. That overall desired result most often comes down to feeling well enough to enjoy life actively with minimal side effects of aging. Up until now, that has often been a combination of health supplements that are chosen based on claimed properties of each supplement. That may become a thing of the past for many with Elysium’s new product that has been generally termed by many as the pill. The product name is Basis, and it may be poised to change the entire landscape of over-the-counter dietary aids.
Basis is a supplement that was developed by MIT biologist Leonard Guarente using NAD+ that is extracted from plants and converted into a pill that can be used by humans converting glucose into energy at the cellular level. NAD+ has long been recognized as a very important component of how humans convert sugar into energy, as it also exists naturally in the human body. The problem is that levels of the molecule decrease as individuals age, which is often why people become less active as they grow older. And, the issue is not necessarily just energy, as the new Elysium product shows properties of slowing the aging process. The impact Basis could have on society in general could be enormous with Elysium Health positioned to grow exponentially.http://www.businessinsider.com/elysium-health-supplements-2016-3
Elysium Health is a startup company that was founded by Guarente along with former JP Morgan investment banker Eric Marcotulli and technology specialist Dan Alminana. Marcotulli and Alminana will serve as the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, respectively, and have obtained the funding necessary to put Basis on the market in a significant way. While they are careful to not make overstatements concerning the effectiveness of the new supplement, they are adamant that this is just the beginning of the company focus on using cutting edge technology in the health supplement market.
Although Basis is still relatively new and unproven regarding long-term results, it still appears as a major breakthrough in the aging process that could result in an entirely new line of health improvement supplements from Elysium. The mission statement from the company is developing new affordable dietary aids using contemporary verifiable scientific information that will allow humans to live a more active and productive life naturally. Basis is apparently the beginning of that mission.
