Basis Ingredients Explained


NAD+ is the first key to Basis and is essential to the creation of energy in the body and the regulation of pivotal cellular processes.

NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a critical coenzyme found in every cell in your body, and it’s involved in hundreds of metabolic processes.  But NAD+ levels decline with age.

NAD+ has two general sets of reactions in the human body:

  • Helping turn nutrients into energy as a key player in metabolism
  • Helping proteins that regulate other cellular functions

A human study from 2017, conducted by Elysium Health, found that daily doses of an NAD+ precursor increased NAD+ levels by an average of 40 percent.




Sirtuins is the second key to Basis and helps regulate your cellular health.  However, it relies on NAD+ to function.

Sirtuins play a key role in regulating cellular homeostasis.  Homeostasis involves keeping the cell in balance.  Sirtuins manage everything that happens in your cells.

Of the 7 sirtuins in a cell, 3 of them work in the mitochondria, 3 of them work in the nucleus and 1 of them works in the cytoplasm, each playing a variety of roles.  The basic role of sirtuins, however, is that they remove acetyl groups from other proteins.

Sometimes a chromatin (condensed form of DNA) becomes open, or unwound, and this means it’s vulnerable to damage.  When the histones (proteins) are deacetylated by sirtuins, the chromatin is closed, meaning gene expression is stopped, or silenced.

Elysium’s first daily supplement, Basis, optimizes cell health using 25 years of aging research from the world’s leading scientists.

Product Description
