There is a lot of attention right now on NAD+ and sirtuin activation so much so that if you wanted to get a combo version with both ingredients in one (an NAD+ booster and sirtuin activator), you could. One of them is Basis, by Elysium. Elysium began to gain traction because of their combination product of Nicotinamide Riboside and Pterostilbene. They use fancy packaging and have a big influence in Silicon Valley. So it's safe to say that they are driven solely by profits and bottom-line. After all, they have investors they need to make rich. Perhaps this is why their version is only a very minimal 50mg of Pterostilbene (half of the industry standard!). And if you pay close attention, it also includes magnesium stearate and silica, two ingredients many researchers advise you stay away from, especially silica since research shows that silica causes the cells in our body to inflame, making them less receptive to the benefits NAD+ or Sirtuin activation may bring.
It almost sounds like it is working against you... and for $60 a bottle, that just sounds a bit off, if you ask me.
But what is most important, and what makes this offer even better is this: Sirtuins are most active while you sleep, making it crucial to take any kind of sirtuin activator at night, before you go to sleep. NAD+ works best and recommended to be taken in the morning so that you have high energy levels throughout the entire day. When the two ingredients are combined into one, one or the other must sacrifice efficacy due to not supplementing at the appropriate time.
By offering a separate product, a standalone and powerful trans-resveratrol, you set yourself up for maximum benefit and efficacy, bring you all the amazing benefits Sirtuin™ is intended to delivery.
