Anti-aging dietary supplement company Elysium Health’s product Basis is now NSF Certified for Sport, the company announced.

The company has spent the last year investing in establishing its own supply chain, said COO Dan Alminana in a press release. It used to source its nicotinamide riboside from ChromaDex before the company severed ties in 2016 due to an alleged breach of contract​.

Though Elysium Health’s Basis is not positioned as a sports nutrition product per se, the certification is one way to communicate supply chain transparency to its buyers and potential buyers, as NSF Certified for Sports ensures that products that bear the seal are free from the more than 270 substances banned by major athletic organizations like the NFL, MLB, NHL, and PGA.

"We believe this certification attests to the success of that effort, and are happy to give customers the peace of mind that we're providing them with a superior product that is in line with the standards accepted by major athletic organizations,"​ Alminana added.

Products with the seal are tested on an ongoing basis to confirm that each lot not only is free from  banned substances, but also that the contents of the product match the label claims.

It also audits the facility in which products are manufactured twice annually to make sure it is compliant to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards.

"As a company, we prioritize quality, safety, and efficacy, so it is important that we obtain industry-leading certifications and seals like NSF Certified for Sport,"​ said Elysium Health CEO Eric Marcotulli in a press release.

"Our customers take Basis to support their long-term health, which is especially valuable for athletes at all levels who want to maintain peak performance for as long as possible."
