The American Supplement Industry
The supplement industry in the US is not strictly regulated by the government. In many cases, companies have used this lack of oversight to over-promise the benefits of their products.But one company out there, Elysium Health, ensures its products undergo rigorous research and testing.
Background on Elysium Health
The New York-based health company Elysium Health is translating advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work i.

Basis is a supplement which is based on 25 years of aging research. It is made up of two ingredients, pterostilbene and nicotinamide riboside. The combination of these two ingredients is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is a coenzyme found in our cells that is required for many of our cellular functions, including energy creation, circadian rhythms, and maintaining DNA health. The levels of NAD+ decline as we age, and those processes can stop functioning.
In 2016, Elysium Health put Basis through a clinical trial. This study proved that Basis increased levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent over a period of time and sustained those levels with continued regular supplement intake.
