We all know our bodies have millions of cells. But we rarely think about the health of our cells. Diet and exercise can help us achieve much better overall well-being and certain supplements can take that even further. And although a lot of supplements exist to help our overall health, few target cellular health in particular.
What Is Elysium Health?
Elysium Health is a consumer health company that was founded in 2014. Dr. Leonard Guarente, Elysium’s co-founder and chief scientist, serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Collaborating with world-class scientists from prestigious academic institutions, the company translates advances in technology and science into create clinically-validated health products that work.
Elysium Health’s first supplement is Basis. It is based on over two decades of aging research. Nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene are the two ingredients that make up Basis. When combined together, the two are proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is essential to hundreds of our cellular functions, including circadian rhythms, energy creation, and DNA protection. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline and those processes can stop functioning. By increasing levels of NAD+, Basis is designed to counteract this decline.
To ensure the effectiveness of Basis, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. Over the course of eight weeks, participants in the study saw their NAD+ levels increase by an average of 40 percent and remain there for the duration of the trial.
The leadership team at Elysium Health seeks to serve the broader health community. Eric Marcotulli directs the vision as the CEO of the company. Before becoming the CEO, he worked at Sequoia Capital as its youngest partner to lead growth investing in mobile technologies. Eric earned his BA from Princeton University and his MBA from Harvard Business School. Dan Alminana works as the COO of the company, in charge of the operational and financial elements of Elysium Health, having previously worked in venture capital at JP Morgan Securities, where he launched and led its Silicon Valley venture capital coverage unit.
