Just give me an overall summary of Elysium...
Eric Marcotulli, Elysium CEO: Elysium's mission is to solve the biggest challenges in health with science. We work directly with the world’s leading scientists and clinicians to translate significant scientific advancements into accessible products for consumers.
What are the benefits?
Dr. Leonard Guarente, Elysium chief scientist and leading aging researcher at MIT: While customers do report benefits that they associate with taking Basis, it wasn't necessarily the primary goal when we developed this product. Basis was designed to increase NAD+, which declines as we age and also results in a decline in the activity of the seven human sirtuin genes. Sirtuins play a critical role in many key cellular functions, so critical in fact that in the scientific field they’re often referred to as the “guardians of the genome.” Basis has one ingredient that activates sirtuins by increasing NAD+ levels and a second that independently activates sirtuins. The health benefits associated with increasing NAD+ levels are still being studied, but Basis has been clinically shown to increase and sustain NAD+ levels in humans when taken daily.
