BASIS by Elysium Health for Anti-Aging?

Published

on

A bottle fell from the counter, and I automatically reached down to grab it. That was the first result I noticed since starting BASIS.

Three years ago I started taking an relatively expensive supplement called BASIS by Elysium health. BASIS contains nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, and I’ve noticed some subtle improvements over the years, making it well worth the cost.

Anti-aging research starts from the proposition that aging should be treated like any other medical or scientific problem. Researchers look at processes that break down as time moves on. NAD+ levels decline with aging. Nicotinamide riboside boosts levels of NAD+ in your body. Because NAD+ levels decline with age, and the thinking goes, boosting NAD+ levels will mitigate some aspects of aging.

Some studies on NAD+ are promising:

What I’ve noticed using BASIS.

When you read most reviews of BASIS, you’ll see the reviewer talk about grey hairs. I went grey in my late 20s, and there aren’t any changes on that front, but my reflexes improved.

My reflexes improved noticeably, which is why I ordered a multi-year subscription to BASIS. Your reflexes / reaction time peaks at 24 years of age. Punching power stays with you the longest, reflexes leave quickly.

It’s hard to explain how my reflexes have improved other to say when I drop something, I’m able to watch it move as if my vision has a high speed camera lens, and am more capable of grabbing the item before it hits the ground. I’m also able to focus more intensely on small details like the branches of trees or leaves of grass.

My blood pressure is also in the super healthy range, despite my life being high stress. Although I can’t attribute my healthy blood pressure to BASIS, others have said it helps with their blood pressure.

These changes are subtle, and because BASIS is pricey, it’s not considered a magic pill. Unless you’re already exercising regularly, you may not notice any changes. (You may still receive some benefits.)

Additional reading on BASIS:

LongeCity has a 1,800+ post discussion on nicotinamide riboside.

Elysium Health (which sells BASIS, so buyer beware) shares some information here.

Do I recommend BASIS?

I don’t have any relationship with BASIS, and if you buy their stuff, I won’t make any money.

But it’s a product I’ve used for years, and believe in.

Is it an immediate game-changer like GABA or N-A-C? No.

Will you notice a “buzz” like when you take a pre-workout? No.

Will it potentially help improve reflexes, and maybe even help heal the brain of someone who has been hit in the head a few times? Yes.

BASIS works for me, and a lot of people buy the pills separately on Amazon or Whole Foods or GNC. BASIS contains 250 mg of nicotinamide riboside an 50 mg of pterostilbene. Reputable companies like Jarrow sell those, and it’s much less expensive to buy them ala carte.

Because it’s an expensive product, I’d put BASIS a few items down the to-do list. Lift weights, eat or drink greens, do Wim Hof Breathing, take cold showers / baths…and then consider an exotic product like BASIS.

The most powerful supplement I’ve used is Gorilla Mind.

Will Mushrooms Save Humanity?

Published

on

Are “magic mushrooms” for filthy hippies who have checked out of life, or is there more to the story? Fantastic Fungi suggests the answer is yes in a wide-ranging documentary on psilocybin.

Loaded with mainstream, normie voices like Michael Pollan (as opposed to say Eckhart Tolle), Fantastic Fungi succeeds as a documentary for skeptics.

All plant medicine faces intense discrimination and bias, with claims ranging that medicine like psilocybin and ayahuasca are “demonic” or will “send you on a bad trip,” despite a lack of scientific evidence that supervised, responsible use of plant medicine has few downsides and updates that include

  • advanced creativity
  • freedom from alcoholism and opioid addiction
  • higher ability to empathize with others and love more

Microdosing psilocybin has been used by names you’d recognize yet never expect, and indeed many people are shocked to learn that I have a decade-long experience with 5-MeO-DMT, ayahuasca, and psilocybin.

The stereotype of course is that people use plant medicine to check out of reality, when in fact the proper use of psilocybin enhances your ability to experience reality.

People wrongly believe that using plant medicine puts your physical body on a spiritual journey, inverting the truth, which is that your spiritual body in on a journey in your physical one.

We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Fantastic Fungi will be enjoyable watch whether you are experienced in these matters or remain a skeptic. To those who are skeptical, grab a cup of coffee or beer (totally not drugs unlike the stuff other people use) and learn about the magic underneath your feet and within your heart.

You can watch Fantastic Fungi here on iTunes.

Published

on

Former President Bill Clinton was seen with two women on Jeffrey Epstein’s “pedophile island,” according to Virgina Roberts.

In newly unsealed documents, Virgina Roberts directly implicated Clinton in an April, 2011 interview. (You can read her full interview here at this link.)

The relevant except says:

When you say you you asked him why is Bill Clinton here, where was here?

Roberts: On the island.

JS: When you were present with Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton on the island, who else was there?

Roberts: Ghislaine, Emmy, and there was two young girls that I could identify. I never really knew them well anyways. It was just 2 girls from New York.

JS: And were all of you staying at Jeffrey’s house on the island including Bill Clinton?

Roberts: That’s correct.

He had about 4 or 5 different villas on his island separate from the main house, and we all stayed in the villas.

JS: Were sexual orgies a regular occurrences at the island of Jeffrey’s house? Roberts: Yes.

 

 

Bill Clinton is directly implicated by an eyewitness in the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking ring.

Jim Jordan Sells Out Conservatives to Big Tech (Read the Confidential Memo in Full)

Published

on

Labelled “Confidential,” the Jim Jordan Memo is something you’re not supposed to see.

Cernovich Media has obtained this Memo and is posted it in full.

Read the Jim Jordan Antitrust Memo here:

Highlights of Jim Jordan’s Antitrust Memo

  • The Memo gives Republican talking points needed to defend Google, Apple, Amazon, and Facebook.
  • The Jim Jordan Memo is clear. Zero antitrust action against Apple, Google, or Amazon will be supported by the GOP, and the memo is loaded with talking points defending Big Tech’s monopoly power.
  • “Even if this hearing suggests that Google, Amazon, Apple, or Facebook have acted unlawfully, that would not necessarily mean underlying antitrust law needs an overhaul.”
