What Is NAD+
NAD+ is a critical coenzyme in our cells that you may have never heard about. It is essential to various cellular functions like circadian rhythms, energy creation, and DNA protection. Levels of NAD+ decline naturally as we age, and those functions break down.

The supplement is clinically proven to increase levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent when taken over the course of several weeks. The results of a clinical trial conducted by Elysium Health in 2016 were published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. An individual jar of Basis costs $60 and contains 60 capsules of the supplement. Monthly subscriptions to Basis are also available and decrease the cost to between $40 and $50 per month, depending on the length of the subscription.
