This Science-Backed Research Could Help You Understand How We Age

Take control of your future with NAD+ supplements and biological age tests from Elysium Health.

Nobody likes getting old. That’s why you can walk into any drugstore in the country and find a hundred different beauty creams, oils, masks, serums, and vitamins. However, the reality is we should worry less about reducing signs of aging on the outside and pay more attention to the health of your cells on the inside. And for that we need products developed by real scientists, not beauty marketing executives. That’s what makes Elysium Health so unique. Founded by Dr. Leo Guarente, director of the Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT, and with a scientific advisory board that includes eight Nobel Laureates, the goal of Elysium Health is to turn critical scientific advancements into products and solutions you can access today.

The Science Of The Cellular Aging Process

The products developed by Elysium Health are primarily based on two major discoveries about how we age at the cellular level.

The first of these discoveries concerns the role played by a molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+. This molecule performs two basic jobs in the human body without which life would not be possible. First, NAD+ plays a key role in metabolism by helping to turn nutrients into cellular energy. Second, it functions as a helper molecule for special proteins called sirtuins. Sometimes called the “guardians of the genome,” sirtuins play a vital role in general health, but they can only do their job with the help of NAD+.

Unfortunately, what scientists have discovered is that our natural NAD+ levels decline as we get older, which is the primary cause of cellular aging. However, the good news is that scientists have also discovered that NAD+ levels in humans can be increased through supplementation of nicotinamide riboside (a highly efficient precursor to NAD+) and pterostilbene (a powerful polyphenol created by plants).

The second major discovery about how we age at the cellular level has to do with epigenetics. Epigenetics is the study of changes in organisms caused by the modification of gene expression. As we age, chemical compounds get attached to our genes and affect how they get expressed. When epigenetic compounds attach to DNA, they are said to have “marked” the genome. These marks do not change the sequence of the DNA, but they do change the way cells read the DNA’s instructions.

One of the most common epigenetic marks is called DNA methylation, and it can be identified and tracked as a sign of aging in different parts of the genome. By taking a sample of your cells and looking at specific sites along the genome to see what proportion of the cells are marked with DNA methylation, scientists can measure your biological age. In 2018, Dr. Morgan Levine, a professor at Yale School of Medicine and Elysium’s Bioinformatics Advisor, developed a revolutionary epigenetic biomarker analysis that calculates biological age.

To address the problem of declining NAD+ levels, Elysium’s team of world-class scientists developed Basis, a patent-pending formulation of crystalline nicotinamide riboside, which the human body converts into NAD+, and pterostilbene. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial, Basis was shown to increase NAD+ levels by an average of 40 percent safely and sustainably. These elevated NAD+ levels help support cellular energy and metabolism, maintain healthy DNA, and support healthy cellular aging.

Basis is designed for long-term use by adults of all ages. Each bottle contains 60 caplets. Each caplet is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, and contains no artificial colors or flavors. They contain 250mg of crystalline nicotinamide riboside and 50mg of pterostilbene, which has no known side effects. Elysium recommends taking two capsules in the morning, with or without food, which means each bottle of Basis contains a 30-day supply.

Index Biological Age Test

To give people a clear picture of how fast they have been aging, Elysium has developed the Index biological age test, which analyzes over 100,000 sites of DNA methylation to calculate your biological age.

When you order the Index biological age test, Elysium sends you a non-invasive saliva collection kit. After you send it back, they extract your DNA, load it onto a specially designed DNA sequencing chip, and run it through Elysium’s next-generation technology called Algorithmic Platform for Epigenetic Examination, or APEX. This sophisticated system scans your epigenome for DNA methylation biomarkers, which it then uses to arrive at your biological age.

Once the analysis process is complete, Elysium sends you a complete report that includes specific health, diet, and lifestyle recommendations that can impact how you age.
