Basis is a daily supplement designed by Elysium Health to support cellular health. Basis is provens to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our bodies. NAD+ is required for energy production, the health of our circadian rhythm, and more. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline and those processes stop functioning. Basis is vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and nut- free, as well as free of any artificial colors and flavors. Thus, the supplement allows you to stick to your diet while taking it.
Elysium Health put Basis through a clinical trial in 2016. As part of the trial, 120 subjects were divided into three even groups. Group one took two capsules—the recommended daily dose, group two took four capsules, group three took a placebo daily. The trial showed that taking the recommended daily dose of Basis over the course of several weeks increased levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent.
