Be More Proactive About Your Health in 7 Easy Steps

It’s a new year and a new opportunity to prioritize your health in a big way. Instead of setting a goal to lose those 5 pounds or finally fit into that pair of jeans (which, let’s be honest, usually doesn’t last much past February), improve your health in the long haul with these science-backed habits. They’ll leave you feeling like the best version of yourself, not just in 2018, but for life.

1. Take a high-quality supplement.

Elysium—a consumer health company working to take important discoveries out of the lab and turn them into products available to people in their everyday lives—is on a mission to help people live healthier for longer. They’ve pooled 25 years of research and worked with the world’s leading scientists and clinicians to create Basis, a dietary supplement that supports cellular health by boosting the body’s NAD+ levels.

Scientists have determined that NAD+ is one of the most essential enzymes for whole-body health, present in every cell in our body. However, as we age, our NAD+ levels decline, no matter how well we eat or how much we exercise. Basis has been clinically proven to increase NAD+ levels by 40 percent in a randomized trial (the results were published in Nature Partner Journals: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.)

This speaks to the next generation of supplement—one that is shaped entirely by science. No wonder 10 percent of Basis customers are doctors.
