Elysium Health Brings Cellular Health to The Masses

Many people want to stay healthy. And now one company is providing an easy way for people to help support the cells in their body. That company, Elysium Health, is working hard to bring total body health innovation to the masses.

Elysium Health is a direct-to-consumer health company co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente in 2014. Working together with some of the world’s leading scientists and clinicians, the company translates advances in science and technology to create clinically-validated health products that work. Dr. Guarente is the chief scientist of Elysium Health, but he also serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. During his career, he has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging.

So why is cellular health so important? When most people think about their health, they think about a healthy heart, healthy bones, and a healthy brain. Well, guess what? All of those vital organs are made of cells. That’s what makes being proactive about your cellular health so critical.

Elysium Health has developed a new daily supplement called Basis. Basis is designed to support cellular health in your body.

So how exactly does Basis work? Well, the cells in your body has a co-enzyme known as NAD+. And studies have shown that NAD+ is essential to many of our cellular functions, including energy creation, circadian rhythm, and DNA health. As we age, the levels of NAD+ decline and those functions can break down. Basis is the first supplement that has been clinically proven to increase and sustain NAD+ levels in humans by an average of  40 percent.

Basis is sold through Elysium Health’s website as monthly subscriptions as well as in individual jars. The most popular subscription is the six-month plan, which costs $270 ($45 per month).You can also purchase a one-year subscription for $480, a monthly for $50 per month, or an individual jar for $60.

Bob Reina: Survival of the Fittest

Learning to ride a bicycle turns out to be one of the best memories when it comes to our first lessons on persistence. As a child, no matter how many times you fall you still get up and continue with learning. At that time you have a mentor and armed with protective gear such as helmets, training wheels and elbow pads. When it reaches a point we can take steps on our own, we are lefts alone. You put your protection gear aside and start riding without your being around.


The same thing happens when we get older. We often endure discomforts and all manner of discouragements for the sake of attaining our goals. Challenges will often nock us down but we do not get discouraged and stop trying. You pick up yourself and move on towards achieving your goal.


Being a youth means having a lot of ambitions and opportunities. When faced with failure you get some encouragement from your mentor and within a short time you pick your pieces together and start off on the journey determined than ever before. However, it reaches a point where people turn into a species of quitters. Our failures, bruised ego and ability to procrastinate become an obstacle to our commitment to success.


Are you going to be a survivor or a quitter?


Metamorphosis in motion


Early last year celebrity singer, Beyoncé brought into life the memories of the old adage “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” This phrase is very powerful when put into practice in real life. The problem people often say it and even caption it on their social media pages yet they cannot apply it in their lives.


America has the highest divorce rate in the world. What does it reflect? It shows how people easily give up on their marriages when they are faced with temporary failures. Every year people quit their jobs, they quit their commitments to a balanced diet, and they quit their dreams and so forth for a self-serving relief. What most of the people forget is the little survival riding habits they had while they were small kids.
