What NAD+ Does
Currently, Elysium Health makes Basis, a daily supplement that is designed to support cellular health. The basis is made up of two ingredients, pterostilbene, and nicotinamide riboside. The combination of these two compounds is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to hundreds of our cellular functions, including circadian rhythms, energy creation, and DNA protection. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline.
Elysium Health decided to put Basis through a clinical trial in order to ensure its effectiveness. Taking the recommended daily dose of Basis increased and sustained levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent in humans during the trial.
