What can be more important in our lives than living as long as we can? There has been a lot of research in this area to find solutions for long term health. Imagine you looking the same way you looked 20 years ago: what a fantastic thing can that be? One company which has made important strides in developing options for longer, healthier life is Elysium Health, a New York City-based health Provider Company determined to solve the health challenges facing people today. In 2015, the startup company said it has managed to turn the chemicals that are used to prolong the lives of worms and mice in laboratories into over the counter supplements for humans.
This discovery means people can be able to combat aging and elongate human lives. Leonard Guarente, the founder of Elysium Health and MIT biologist, said that aging could be slowed down modifying the body’s metabolism. However, Mr. Guarante admits that there is no proof that drugs or chemicals that prolong the lives of animals can do the same to humans. He says that the experiments to prove this can take an extended period plus the approvals required.
To eliminate this long process, Mr. Leonard decided to take the unconventional yet important route of packaging nutraceuticals which do not involve clinical trials nor approvals from FDA. The first pill produced was named Basis and comprises nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a compound used by cells in their metabolic reactions. Elysium Health also plans to increase its product line by the addition of other compounds which have been proven by academic labs as capable of extending the lifespans of mice worms and other lab animals.
Elysium Health has made it its mission to solve health challenges with science by helping people live longer and healthier. The company works with the world’s most prominent scientists, clinicians, and other researchers to turn science and technology into effective scientifically proven health products. The Elysium Health team is comprised of leaders from different fields of science and technology who are dedicated to employing their scientific knowledge to make products that help people live long healthy lives.
Elysium Health leadership team includes Eric Marcatulli who is the CEO, Dan Alminana, COO, Chris Castro, Chief of Staff and Leonard Guarante who is the Lead Scientist. Others are Andrew Lin, Chief Design Officer, Mark Morris, Head of Scientific Technology and Ryan Dellinger who is the Director of Scientific Affairs. Their combined effort has seen Elysium Health make several strides in the development of cutting-edge health products.
The company’s discoveries and products are based upon long time incremental research. Its collaboration with different world-class institutions is what has made its products formidable. The company has partnered with different institutions such as University of Cambridge, Harvard University and Oxford University in its quest to solve health challenges facing humans today. Some of Elysium Health’s product range includes; Basis, Nicotinamide Riboside, Pterostilbene and much more.
