Top 10 Titan Models Review

Titan Massage Chair Models (2021 Review) & [ Alternatives ]

Julia StearnsHow do you choose the best massage chair?

It is cab be done, but…

Only the Titan brand selling 20+ full body massage chair models at the moment.

How do you choose?

After going over countless reviews, consulting with a few experts (as always), and compare the benefits of all Titan chair models I can draw some concision that hopefully will help you decide which chair you want.

All that helped me put together the list of top 10 Titan massage chairs.

I’ve discussed the features, the benefits, and all their pros and cons.

Also, I will suggest a few BETTER alternatives below…

The Company

You may have already heard about the Titan brand of massage chairs because it’s the same company as Osaki.

Titan is among the leaders in its branch, but it comes with a unique selling proposition: high quality at an affordable price.

My view is that Titan commits fully to respecting this promise. For one, Osaki massage chairs are inexpensive because they’re made in China. TitanTitan, on the other hand, brings its enormous experience in building massage chairs, combined with stellar craftsmanship.

While Titan is a reliable brand, you might find other brands that retail more expensive massage chairs, but with a lot more bells and whistles.

For instance, even in the lowest price range, you can find better alternatives like the Infinity 8500 or the Kahuna LM-6800.

Human Touch and Brookstone are other major competitors for Titan.

Titan Massage Chair Reviews 2021 / Product Line Overview

1. Titan Pro Jupiter XL (This is Best-Selling Model From Titan)

Titan PRO Jupiter XL

Pro Jupiter has plenty of quality characteristics, plus it’s Titan’s flagship model.

It is their best-selling model too, although it’s among their most expensive massage chairs.

So why do I like it? Firstly, I think it boasts a user-friendly design, starting with its space-saving technology.

Its XL size might not be fit for a small apartment, but it accommodates users up to 6’6’’.

The Jupiter has built-in Bluetooth so you can listen to music, as well as an easy-to-use remote.

The massage is good as well.

The 3D technology can accurately find your painful knots and apply constant pressure to massage them.

Unfortunately, the rollers can’t be controlled manually.

Titan Jupiter XLI also like the L-track massage chair because it contours the shape of your spine, but extends to your glutes and upper thighs for a complete massage experience.

All this means that Jupiter can offer a decent, yet average, back massage.

The dual-action foot massage is another point in its corner, with both rolling and scraping.

The rolling motion mimics how a therapist’s thumbs would feel pressing on the bridge of your feet to your balls.

The scraping motion has the rollers move forward and back, between your bridge to your heels.

Combine that with the airbag massage, and it becomes exceptionally relaxing.

Another benefit of this triple massage is that your blood circulation is improved, as well as any chronic pain, especially from plantar fasciitis.

The head compression massage is another unique feature of Jupiter.

The built-in airbags inflate and squeeze your temples, to relax you and to reduce stress pain or migraine pain.

The two Zero-G positions are another decent feature, as Jupiter sustains your whole body weight.

Jupiter Remote ControlIt relieves spinal pressure and alleviates pain, plus it makes your massage feel deeper.

For this price range, the second zero-Gravity massage position, which offers a more significant inclination, is a bonus.

The lumbar heat therapy is another decent feature, as it helps loosen tense muscles and improves your blood circulation.

I also liked the twisting hip massage with airbags, which can alleviate sciatica pain.

The arm and shoulder compression massage is terrific for correcting a poor posture, especially after sitting around at your desk for a long time.

Infinity IT-8500 Model

However, the foot and calf massage uses just airbags, so it’s good but not perfect.

A roller massage for this area would have been better to improve circulation and reduce pain.

That said, I like the vast array of choices and optimizations.

You can choose between 10 auto programs, five massage techniques, including the advanced Shiatsu, there are five-speed levels, five airbag intensity levels, and the massage width can be adjusted on three levels.

With that in mind, Infinity 8500 and Infinity 8500X3 are better alternatives.

Infinity 8500 has the additional inversion therapy which, combined with zero-G, makes for a deeper, more therapeutic spinal massage.

Infinity IT 8500 x3

IT-8500 also boasts mechanical foot rollers for a better foot and calf massage, plus spinal correction, which complements the shoulder massage to improve your posture.

Other therapeutic characteristics that make the IT-8500 better are the seat compression massage and sway for sciatica pain, and the body stretch.

This Tru-Grip V stretch done with airbags releases spinal pressure effectively.

In addition to this, the 8500X3 boasts reflexology foot rollers that target acupoints on your feet, offering a deep tissue sole massage.

Besides, the zone function massage allows the chair to focus on a painful knot for as long as you like.

Pros

  • Two zero-G positions
  • Decent back massage
  • Great sole massage
  • Great arm massage
  • A lot of customizations
  • Can fit a wide array of users
  • User-friendly

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Bulky
  • Can’t manually adjust 3D rollers

.

Summary: Jupiter can provide a therapeutic, relaxing massage, but it’s a bulky chair.

2. Executive (This is Second Best Selling Model from Titan)

Titan Pro Executive Model

Pro-Executive is usually retailed at around $3000.

Another one of the best chairs in its category, Pro Executive has two top characteristics: excellent foot massaging, plus knee heat along with lumbar heat.

The 3D massage rollers offer a massage, as they can move in and out of your spine, not just left and right.

Titan Pro Features

The 61 airbags can effectively compress your body to reduce blood pressure and relax you.

I also liked the three memory slots so that you can save your customizations, and the two zero-G positions to relieve spinal pressure and deep-massage your back.

The toe massage is a rare feature among massage chairs so that I would buy this one just for the stellar foot massaging.

The shoulder and arm massage are pretty decent too.

However, there aren’t a lot of choices and customizations. Only six auto-programs, but luckily the remote is easy to use because it’s color-coded.

Apart from the hip twist that can alleviate sciatica or lower back pain, I also liked the waist stretch.

The airbags inflate, and then your legs are pulled down, which creates a pulling action on your spine.

Pros

  • 3D massage rollers
  • 61 airbags
  • Lumbar and feet heat
  • Three memory slots
  • Two zero-G positions
  • Toe massage
  • Hip Twist
  • Bluetooth connection

Cons

  • Limited massage options

.

Summary: Pro-Executive is a stellar Titan chair for (lower) back pain.

3. Commander

Titan Pro Commander

Titan Pro Commander Massage Chair has similar features to the Jupiter and the Executive.

The 3D massage rollers offer a wide massage area, and they’re flexible, plus they move on an ergonomic LTrack that touches all the pressure points on your back and extends to your upper hamstrings.

The total body air massage is pretty decent, with 12 airbags that compress and decompress repetitively to improve your blood circulation and reduce pain.

Titan Pro Commander FeaturesThe spinning reflexology rollers are what makes this chair unique because they press acupuncture points for a deep-kneading massage that relieves feet pain.

Another advantage, as opposed to the other two chairs above, is Pro-Commander’s third zero gravity level.

It adds another reclining position, lifting your legs even higher above your head, to make for an even deeper spinal massage. However, Pro-Commander boasts just lumbar heat.

It is a user-friendly chair, with a footrest that can extend up to 6.5 inches.

The Commander has more massage options than Pro-Executive, as you can choose from five automatic programs and four massage techniques, including Shiatsu.

The multi-language setting, intuitive remote, intensity and speed adjustments, plus the elbow and neck cushion are additional user-friendly characteristics.

Pros

  • 3D massage rollers
  • LTrack
  • Decent total body air massage
  • Spinning reflexology foot rollers
  • Three zero-G positions
  • Extendable footrest
  • Decent massage options

Cons

  • Just lumbar heat
  • No memory function

Summary: Pro-Commander comes with three zero-G positions and spinning reflexology foot rollers, which alleviate back pain and plantar fasciitis pain.

4. Alpha

Titan Alpha Pro Model

Pro Alpha has a few similarities with Pro Jupiter, like the space-saving technology, Bluetooth, LTrack ad two zero-gravity positions.

They also have similar techniques, meaning Kneading, Tapping, Combo, and advanced Shiatsu.

All this means is you’ll get a decent, albeit average, back massage to relieve mild pain and relax you.

Pro Alpha is set apart by a memory function and dual-action foot rollers that provide a life-like massage to your feet.

These foot rollers are excellent to reduce foot and arch pain, as well as improve blood circulation.

Alpha Pro BenefitsYou can choose from six automatic massage programs: Express, Wholesome, Oriental, Swedish, and Classic as well as the therapeutic Chiro.

This comfortable chair boasts another benefit: the back pillow.

LTrack chairs are renowned for their vigorous, sometimes painful, back massages, but the back pillow can reduce the massage intensity.

The adjustable shoulders are user-friendly, as the Pro Alpha can accommodate users of different sizes.

The air massage is decent too, with 28 airbags that cover your whole body.

Lumbar heat therapy improves blood circulation and unwinds sore muscles.

Besides, the side control panel is easy to reach, while the LCD monitor is intuitive for easy use.

Pros

  • Decent back massage
  • Memory function
  • Therapeutic
  • Back pillow
  • Great neck massage

Cons

  • Limited manual massage techniques
  • Just lumbar heat

.

Summary: Alpha is an inexpensive, therapeutic chair but could use more massage techniques and feet heat.

5. TP- Pro 8400

TP 8400 Pro

The TP Pro 8400 looks smart and stylish, but it has functional advantages as well.

The full-body scan identifies pressure points, adjusting the rollers as well as the foot extension to fit your body type.

This chair has a limited number of automatic massage options.

You can choose between five options, all of which revolve around the concept of relaxation and recovery.

The TP Pro 8400 isn’t what I’d call a therapeutic chair, more like a relaxation chair.

TP 8400 Pro Zero-GravityHowever, the zero-G position and lumbar heat are a couple of therapeutic functions you could use for your spine, especially if you suffer from chronic back pain.

The LTrack design is excellent for reducing back pain as well because the rollers touch all the pressure points on your spine. Besides, LTrack chairs offer a vigorous back massage.

The full-range foot massaging with two rows of spinning reflexology rollers, ankle knobs, and airbags improves blood pressure and reduces foot pain.

I also like the full range of intensity and speed adjustments for this chair, even though it has limited massage options.

Pros

  • L-track
  • Stylish look
  • Foot extension
  • Recovery chair
  • Spinning reflexology foot rollers
  • Ankle knobs
  • Multiple speed and intensity adjustments

Cons

  • Limited massage options
  • Just one zero-G position
  • No calf and feet heat

.

Summary: 8400 is the best Titan chair for relaxing spinal massages and therapeutic feet massages.

6. Titan Luca V

Luca V

Titan Luca V is one of the newer models, but it has similar features to the other Titan models.

It is a basic chair, with the basic characteristics that allow it to offer a decent massage.

In other words, there’s nothing special about it, except maybe the Bluetooth speakers which improve your massage experience.

The L-track that extends under your glutes and upper thighs makes for a complete massage experience.

Luca V In Front PositionThe 16 airbags that cover your whole body for an airbag massage work OK, but again – nothing special about them.

The lumbar heat works, the extendable footrest accommodates bigger users, and the remote is easy to use.

In terms of massage styles, you get just four basic massage programs with five manual massage techniques, including the advanced Shiatsu.

The spinning reflexology foot rollers massage all your acupressure points, reducing arch pain.

Otherwise, I would have liked to see some more unique characteristics, like maybe more zero-G positions, ankle knobs, feat heat, a special hip swivel or body stretch, perhaps even a memory function.

But like I said, Luca V is just your basic massage chair.

For this price range, Kahuna LM6800 has more massage options, five manual techniques, calf heat, fixed massage spot, a vigorous Yoga stretch plus three zero-gravity positions, so it’s a better choice.

Pros

  • Decent massages
  • L-track
  • Extendable ottoman
  • Spinning reflexology foot rollers

Cons

  • No unique features

.

Summary: A basic massage chair for hobbyist users, Luca V offers decent massages especially if you’re on your feet for most of the day.

7. Summit

Pro Summit Titan Model

Pro Summit has a few improvements when compared to other Titan chairs. For instance, the S-L massage track comes with the best of both worlds.

So while it extends to your glutes and upper hamstrings, this track is better for total body stretches.

The dual reflexology foot rollers are another Titan mark, touching your acupuncture points for a deep-tissue foot massage.

You also get six manual massage techniques, two of which are advanced: Shiatsu and Punching.

I also love the compression air massage because it has a waist twist function that’s great for stretching and relieving spinal pain.

Pro Summit ProsMy data shows that this has therapeutic purposes, with many happy customers relieved of sciatica pain.

Besides, you can adjust the airbag massage on five intensity levels.

Apart from lumbar heating, shoulder heating is an excellent plus, making it a perfect chair to improve posture and to relax you.

Add to shoulder heating the effective upper arm, shoulder, and hand compression massage to unwind after a long day at the office.

The seat vibration is another extra for relaxation and unwinding tense muscles.

The Pro-Summit is user-friendly, with an intuitive remote, USB charger, space-saving technology, and 10-year warranty.

However, the Summit could use some improvements, like feet heat, Bluetooth connection, or memory function.

Pros

  • Hybrid massage track
  • Adjustable body scan
  • Great air massage
  • Shoulder heating
  • User-friendly

Cons

  • No calf heat
  • No music
  • No memory function

.

Summary: The TI Pro Summit offers a great foot reflexology massage and an excellent shoulder massage to improve posture.

8. Titan TP Pro Carina

TP Carina

The TP-Carina’s highlights are chromotherapy and three built-in memory programs.

Chromotherapy is done with the help of blue LED lights, which should relax you and help you go to sleep faster.

Chromotherapy reduces stress, anxiety, depression, and fights insomnia or other sleep issues.

TP-Carina LeatherThe Carina isn’t an inexpensive Titan chair, and it boasts some of the trademark functions I’ve discussed above: L-track design for a full massage from your neck to your glutes, space-saving technology, zero-gravity, full-body airbag massage, foot rollers, and computer body scan.

There are six preset programs and five built-in massage styles, including the advanced Shiatsu and Flapping.

Otherwise, I would have liked to see more massage options and adjustments. As it is, you can only control the air compression intensity on three levels.

For this price range, the Kahuna LM6800 has more therapeutic advantages, including two extra zero-gravity, heat therapy, Yoga Stretch and Zone massage.

Pros

  • Chromotherapy
  • Three memory slots
  • Space-saving technology
  • Decent massages

Cons

  • Limited massage options
  • Limited adjustments/ customizations
  • No unique features
  • Expensive

.

Summary:  Titan Carina is a reliable chromotherapy chair, but lacks important functions for this price range, like heat therapy.

9. TI-Inversion Cloud Comfort (New Chair)

Titan Cloud Comfort

A new model, the Inversion Cloud Comfort is inexpensive and comes with a unique feature: inversion therapy. It elevates your legs above your head, which decreases leg pressure and improves blood circulation.

The added seatbelt makes this chair quite safe.

Cloud Comfort doesn’t have a roller design, though, so don’t expect a roller massage.

It’s a vibrating chair, which can offer relaxing massages, although not particularly effective in treating chronic pain.

The auto recline feature is user-friendly. I like the feel of this chair’s genuine leather upholstery because it’s so smooth.

I also appreciate the adjustments I could make, both in terms of intensity and the four vibration massage positions.

There’s just curbside delivery with this chair, though, so make sure there’s someone to help you carry it inside.

Pros

  • Inexpensive
  • Inversion therapy
  • Seatbelt
  • Relaxing vibrations
  • User-friendly
  • Smooth leather
  • A decent number of adjustments

Cons

  • No roller massage
  • No extra functions
  • Not for chronic pain

.

Summary: Cloud Comfort is an inexpensive chair for inversion therapy, but lacks the bells and whistles of a roller massage chair.

10. Titan TI-8700

TP 8400 Titan Model

The Titan Ti-8700 is another model with decent features, like the two zero-gravity positions to remove spinal pressure and offer a deep massage.

There are five automatic programs, lumbar heat, plus a decent foot and calf compression massage.

What I liked most about this chair is the outer shoulder and arm massage to correct poor posture.

The improved foot rollers are pinning reflexology massagers for deep-tissue foot massaging.

Another excellent feature is seat vibration, which can improve blood circulation and reduce lower-back or seat pain, including sciatica.

What I would have liked to see are more unique features. I can’t help but compare this chair with the Kahuna 6800 again, or the two Infinity 8500 models.

These two chairs have many therapeutic advantages, helping with chronic pain, including particularly vigorous back stretches and more zero-G options. Not to mention calf heat.

Pros

  • Two zero-G positions
  • Lumbar heat
  • Decent foot and calf compression massage
  • Excellent arm massage for poor posture
  • Reflexology rollers
  • Seat vibration

Cons

  • Limited auto programs
  • Very few unique features
  • Expensive for the Titan Brand

.

Summary: Titan TI-8700 offers a relaxing massage and can correct poor posture, but doesn’t have many options or therapeutic benefits.

Is Massage Chair Dangerous?

The recent discussion about the risks of massage chairs is not the first time that questions of hazard have been raised. In fact, physicians themselves raised some very similar concerns back in the early 1990s. However, they were dismissed at the time as being untrue and rooted in irrational fear and unfounded complaints. So what’s so bad about these chairs? According to buying guide, to start with, you should be aware that unlike stationary exercise equipment like weights or bicycles, the chair is not recommended for use by children or adults with limited leg mobility, balance issues, or minor mobility issues due to rheumatoid arthritis.

They’re also not recommended for those with back problems or head injuries.) Advertisement. It also comes with a staggering 10 to 16 motion-restricted positions that are meant to prevent injury, like back injuries, slipped discs, sprained ankles, and sprained wrists, among other common causes of injury. All that motion will wear out your body very quickly, and that applies not just to the legs but to your lower back and neck, too. Other common issues come from sitting for long periods of time, which can damage your lower back. It may lead to arthritis, but it also can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, and general fatigue. As I’ve written before, your seat shouldn’t move to give you a massage (sharper image).

Is a Massage Сhair a Good Investment?

We are talking about a highly personalized offering, which may be focused on your skin, head, or back. A good masseur should be comfortable around all body parts and sensitive to each individual in order to deliver a massage that is relaxing and soothing. Some spas offer one-to-one, which can be a very good service as they really make you feel as though you’re in the company of a friend. In this case, you’ll usually be able to book in advance, and it is ideal if you want to go at a time that is most convenient for you. The minimum age for a massage is 18, but if you are 18 and under, you should ask for this to be waived on request as sometimes an 18-year-old massage is very uncomfortable for anyone of any age.

How Much Do Massages Cost in a Massage House? There’s no way of knowing what you’ll end up paying until you book a massage at a massage house, which you’ll find when you Google. Usually, a half-hour massage will cost between £5 and £10, a full-hour massage will cost from £10 to £20, and a full-body massage will cost £15 to £30. Is it good to Eat Before a Massage? No, as a massage isn’t a form of exercise and would require a lot of sitting still.

Is it Bad to Use a Massage Chair Everyday?

As the chair you sit in becomes old, the springs are weak, and the joint and structure become kinked, there is a risk of injury and damage to your neck and spine. If you find your neck pain and/or headaches persist, then there may be damage to your disks. Or maybe your spinal cord is kinking. With such a great amount of manipulation, one might take into account the detrimental effects of long-term usage.

Daily massage chair use can irritate the muscles of your neck and shoulders. While having a massage each day may help you relax, over time the muscles are often so tight and cramped, they cannot stretch. This is why this type of chair should be rotated out every few months. It’s best to use one of these chairs on a fairly regular basis, in short bursts at worst. It’s best to use one of these chairs on a fairly regular basis, in short bursts at worst. There are long-term cases of scoliosis due to regular massage usage. A relative of Sigmund Freud wrote about a little girl suffering from scoliosis.

Customer Service

The Titan/Osaki brand has good customer service which is easy to reach and pretty responsive. You can reach them by phone at 1-888-848-2630 or email. For warranty requests and service advice, or for an RMA number request please contact the Titan Chair LLC Client Service department.

Final Words

The Titan brand has some reliable models. Pro Jupiter XL is by far the best, with two zero-gravity positions, stellar sole and arm massages, lots of customizations and it can fit a lot of users.

All Titan massage chairs offer functional, basic massages, though. Some have unique massage features like Carina’s chromotherapy or the TP-8400’s ankle knobs, but all of them are in the affordable price range.

However, there are other more therapeutic massage chairs even in the same price range. I’ve already told you guys about the Infinity 8500 and 8500X3, as well as the Kahuna 6800.

Hopefully, that will help you make an informed choice – but come back here and tell me all about it when you do!

Elysium Basis Review

Elysium Basis Review (2021 Update) | Anti-Aging Miracle or SCAM?

IF you are reading this, you may already know that Nicotinamide Riboside is a relatively newly discovered NAD+ precursor.

Low NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) levels in the body are shown to impair mitochondrial function.

Levels of NAD diminish as we age.

What is Elysium Basis?

Elysium supplement company was founded by Leonard Guarente (MIT researcher and chief scientist) and tech investors Eric Marcotulli and Dan Alminana.

Elysium is Clinically-Proven NAD+ Supplement. NAD precursors found in Elysium and TruNiagen products promise to replenish NAD levels in the blood and inside a cell.

Let’s find out if products from Elysium Health are the real fountain of youth or another over-hyped product?

We will also uncover some controversy behind its product.

MY RECOMMENDATION ( For Longevity & Daily Energy)
There are only a Few Leaders in this Market Segment ( . & .). . is the ONLY Legal Distributor. The product has thoroughly been Tested for Efficiency & Safety.

Much Anecdotal Evidence Pointing Out to Increased Energy Throughout The Day. I Can Confirm This In My Personal Experience. Also, Product Scientifically Proven to Increase NAD Levels. Now. (.).

  • 100+ Preclinical Studies
  • 20+ Owned and Licensed Patents
  • NIAGEN was successfully reviewed under the FDA’s (new dietary ingredient notification program (NDI)

.

Is Nicotinamide Riboside Good / Health Benefits?

NR, aka Niagen, is shown to slow the symptoms of the natural aging process in animal studies.

NR is one of the precursors of NAD+, which means it transforms into NAD+ inside our body. NAD+ is found in a whole body.

This helper molecule increases your energy levels, your metabolism, and memory.

Nicotinamide RibosideBy taking NR, the alternative form of vitamin B3, you are betting on the fact that biological processes related to aging will improve.

DNA cells will be repaired, your immune system will work better, and your internal clock readjusted to ward off various sleep issues.

Many chronic illnesses are related to low NAD levels, including diabetes, heart issues, and Alzheimer’s, and NR supplementation promise to help to raise NAD levels.

Even though you can find NR in some foods like cows’ milk and flour, NR supplementation is more effective at elevating NAD levels. Read the following guide to find the best nad supplement.

Elysium Health Lawsuit

Chromadex and Elysium Health are fighting over the patents for the use of NR with hopes to reap the windfalls that come with controlling the market.

Elysium LogoNR is the main ingredient in Elysium Health, but this isn’t the only company that sells it.

However, its selling proposition revolves around the six Nobel Prize winners who have taken up an advisory role in this company.

While this should make the Basis more credible, the truth is that the six scientists and researchers aren’t actively involved in the creation of Elysium, nor the combination between NR and Pterostilbene.

This company doesn’t highlight the use of Niagen in its composition and markets Elysiumas an exclusive blend created by these scientists.

However, Elysium used to buy both NR and Pterostilbene from their competition, Chromadex.

Elysium Supplement Reviews / How Did This Start?

When dr. Brenner found out that NR can replenish NAD levels, Chromadex immediately went on board, promising to help manufacture and sell these health supplements.

Eventually, Chromadex couldn’t keep its promises, so Elysium got in the picture as one of Chromadex’s primary customers.

Elysium started buying NR from Chromadex, which they used for manufacturing Elysium.

In 2017, Chromadex and Elysium Health started a lawsuit, after which Elysium started manufacturing its NR.

Chromadex LogoThat’s why I think that Elysium is not more effective than other products that use NR, especially since most of these companies still buy NR from Chromadex.

The lawsuit revolves around the patent challenge, but Chromadex won this battle.

There are various lawsuits between these brands, with claims like patent misuse, fraudulent inducement, breach of contract, false advertising, and unfair competition.

Chromadex accused Elysium of plotting and scheming to get control over the NR market.

Elysium accused Chromadex of selling NR to another company for a lower price.

In my mind, it’s all about two giants fighting for market control on an anti-aging pill that already brings revenue of tens of millions of dollars. Basically, this lawsuit is about money.

Where Does Elysium Get Their Nicotinamide Riboside?

At first, Elysium got its NR from Chromadex, like various other companies that sell NR-based products. However, they didn’t feature Niagen – Chromadex’s proprietary NR – on the Basis’s tag.

Following the 2017 lawsuit with Chromadex, Elysium lost the patent war and claimed it started manufacturing its own NR.

This raises various questions. For instance, Basis endorsed by some clinical studies, but those were done with Chromadex’s Niagen.

Can the study results still stand if Elysium uses another substance?

Elysium Safe?

Besides, Niagen is an NR chloride, which explains its white color, stability, and long shelf life.

If Basis doesn’t use Chromadex’s Niagen, what accounts for its white color, stability, and shelf life? How is the new Basis produced? Is the new Elysium safe?

Elysium should come up to answers to all these questions. Besides, what if Elysium broke the patent infringement and still uses Niagen?

Another strong point is that Elysium claims that Basis is manufactured in the US – but doesn’t say where its ingredients are manufactured. That doesn’t sit right with me.

Do Nicotinamide Riboside Supplements Like Basis Work?

Some online reviewers claim to see an improvement in their energy levels, mental clarity, and sleep. I’ve taken some NR supplements, and I could see improvements in all those areas too.

However, some people say they didn’t notice anything after taking NR.

What Does the Science Say?

The current research revolves around the benefits of NR and NAD on animals, with very few human studies to date.

That’s why we’re not talking about the benefits of NR and NAD+, but rather of their potential benefits.

The studies highlight that NR is the easiest to convert into NAD+, the coenzyme responsible for good aging. Other NAD precursors aren’t as easily absorbed in your body as NR.

NAD LevelsNR activates sirtuins, which help you age healthily. Various animal studies link sirtuins to improved life span and better health, better DNA repairs, improved stress resistance, and less inflammation.

NR could also protect brain cells because it’s involved in the synthesis of the PGC-1-alpha protein.

This protein acts as an antioxidant and activates when your body’s mitochondrial function backfires, which usually happens for patients with brain disorders like Alzheimer’s.

An improved mitochondrial function leads to more energy, but NR can also decrease the risk of heart disease. That’s because increase NAD+ levels stabilize blood pressure and make the aorta more flexible.

Other benefits include a more rapid weight loss, lower risk of cancer, better muscle function and even improving jet lag symptoms.

Needless to say that some scientist are critical about any claims such companies makes:

If you say you’re a terrific scientist and you have a treatment for long term healthy aging, it gets a lot of attention,” Jeffrey Flier pointed out, a former Harvard Medical School dean who has critisize the hype around this product.

What Are the Risks of Nicotinamide Riboside?

Various studies highlight that a dosage of a maximum of 2,000 mg daily has no harmful effects.

While the current research shows no side effects or adverse reactions to NR, these studies are short and feature few subjects.

Vitamin B3

Some online reviewers complain of nausea, tiredness, GI discomfort, and mild headaches after taking NR.

The good news is, unlike vitamin B3, NR doesn’t give you uncomfortable face flushes.

Elysium Basis Ingredients

Elysium supplement features 250 mg NR and 50 mg pterostilbene. The formula includes various thickeners and anti-caking agents which are generally safe, like Microcrystalline Cellulose, Hypromellose, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, and Silica.

The 250 mg of NR has benefits for age-related illnesses. But I already discussed all that above.

What I want to focus on are that 50 mg of Pterostilbene. This substance has recently been shown to increase bad cholesterol levels.

However, some companies still use it in their chemical formulas, especially products that claim to improve cognitive functions.

Elysium Basis supplement Ingredients

Pterostilbene has a similar composition to Resveratrol, that magical molecule in grape skin that is supposed to make you younger.

According to Elysium Health, Pterostilbene protects against cellular stress, has various anti-aging properties, and activates the sirtuins we talked about before.

That’s why this substance can increase your metabolism and help you lose weight faster.

So, would I take a product that contains Pterostilbene? That depends. I took Pterostilbene before it was proven to influence bad cholesterol.

Though I saw it works, I wouldn’t take it again – anyway, not until I would talk to my GP about it.

Do NAD Supplements Work?

When you’re looking to get your nutritional health on track, you may think of adding vitamins and nutrients to your diet. But that’s not the only option you have. The Natural Energy & Nutrition Lab (NEN Lab) conducted a study of four different NAD that claim to enhance metabolism and burn fat. Here’s what they found. Micellar Triple-Product Containing NAD++ and Nerve Growth Factor, NAD+ by Gamalon and Lipotron, and Clenbuterol are Enzymes in Mix Gained Weight and Fat Loss.

All four supplements contain components that help regulate energy-storing brown fat or the “good fat” in the body that burns fat and lowers your risk of obesity. These supplementation claim that, if you take them regularly, you can burn more calories and fat. The study looked at the amount of weight the rodents gained and how much they lost. Some of the mice in the study were given supplementations that contained n-acetyl-L-carnitine, n-acetyl cysteine, NAD+, and growth hormone. Others were given a placebo. After just eight weeks, those mice that had been given the supplementation were four times more likely to gain weight than those that had been given a placebo. The mice that took the supplementation also lost more weight and fat and showed more calorie-burning than those that were given the placebo.

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) & Your Health

NAD+ has a significant influence on human cellular health and health in general. Decreased NAD levels impair mitochondrial function, which happens as we age.

Mitochondria are the powerhouse of your cell. So if they don’t work properly, your energy levels decline.

That doesn’t just mean you’ll feel more sluggish.

But a body with decreased energy levels has less power to fight infections and to heal itself.

That’s why age-related declining NADlevels link to an increased risk of chronic illness.

NAD PlusIn turn, NAD+ helps you age gracefully and feel more energetic.

There is plenty of research revolving around NAD, and the fact that it can alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and cancer.

A study published in Cell Journal shows that NAD precursors help rejuvenate mitochondria in mice.

Various animal clinical trials emphasize convincing results in terms of increased cellular energy. This helps your body repair your DNA, so it works better.

NAD+ is involved in the creation of sirtuins. These proteins are NAD+-dependent deacetylases, which improve your metabolism, regulate your circadian rhythm, or how your body adapts to day-night changes, plus they repair your DNA and reduce inflammation.

Sirtuins have various cardiometabolic benefits. They protect against obesity, improve your blood circulation, heart issues, and regulate insulin sensitivity. Most of these disorders connect to old age and a sedentary lifestyle.

NAD is also involved in treatingCockayne syndrome. This genetic disease is rare and appears in children, who get symptoms of old age.

Seeing as NAD can effectively treat these symptoms, it’s believed that it can improve age-related issues in adults too.

Elysium Basis vs.Tru Niagen

I’ll start with the short version: Tru Niagen is better because it has an original formula, quality ingredients, and a better price.

Although Basis and Niagen both contain the same primary active ingredient – NR – there are significant differences in the companies’ product, pricing, and service. Also, Tru Niagen now contains 300mg of NR/ dosage, whereas Basis contains 250mg.

Versus Tru NiagenAnother point to consider is that Chromadex stopped using pterostilbene in its products after the new research shows it increases LDL – bad cholesterol.

Elysium has other ingredients that stop me from taking it, such as trace residue of toluene. The opinions are split regarding toluene, especially considering that it’s not toxic enough to manifest severe adverse reactions.

The bigger problem, however, is that Elysium didn’t tell the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) that it’s using toluene in its manufacturing process from the start.

True Niagen is a better product because it uses quality ingredients. The capsules are vegetarian, with no added gluten, caffeine, nuts, or artificial ingredients. Besides, Tru Niagen is FDA-certified, whereas Elysium is not.

There’s a lot of science backing TruNiagen, published in peer-reviewed magazines.

TruNiagenThese clinical trials are based on various other pre-clinical studies at famous US and worldwide universities, as you can see from the Chromadex website.

Besides, Chromadex has 20 licensed patents for its product and over 140 research collaborations with famous US universities.

This propensity for research shows that Chromadex is working hard to improve the TruNiagen formula.

On the other hand, the studies featured on Elysium’s website are less convincing.

Firstly, the ones relating to the benefits of pterostilbene are short and involve fewer participants.

The ones which show how NR works are problematic too, seeing as Elysium manufactures NR on its own, and doesn’t disclose anything about the manufacturing process.

Regarding the price, Elysium needs you to subscribe so you can benefit from its discounts.

TruNiagen features both a subscription discount and a multi-bottle discount so that the price decrease can be up to 40%.

.

How Much Does Basis by Elysium Cost?

One bottle of Elysium costs $60, while six bottles cost $270.

Various discounts are depending on your purchase plan, though. With one year of prepaid deliveries, you can save up to 33%.

Elysium Health Index Biological Age Test Review

The index is a home test intended to determine based on epigenetics how fast consumers have continued aging. Elysium Health presents a combined speed of aging and biological age in the report. The overall biological age is intended to show how a c client’s overall health would equate to a person of normal health at the same age. The examination looks for DNA methylation (a straightforward method that points to suppress gene transcription) in a client’s genome. While methylation isn’t the unique epigenetic change to happen, it is simple and matches closely with other age-related biomarkers.

lifestyle, Genetic,  environmental, and transient factors may affect DNA methylation. Lifestyle choices include diet fitness, smoking, etc. Simultaneously with the increasing rate of aging and overall biological age, the Index paper presents advice on how buyers can improve biological age through simple lifestyle changes. The product is not meant to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or condition or evaluate the risk of any condition or disease.

The Index Science

Epigenetics is separate from genetics. Most DNA Tests, like those purchased from Ancestry, 23andMe, investigate the underlying genetic principles. This code gives insights into things such as health-related choices, ancestry, and character traits. The genome is fixed.

Epigenetics includes differences affected by changes that turn genes off and on and not the code. Eventually, epigenetic modifications control cellular action. Unlike the static genome, epigenetics is dynamic during life.

Professor at Yale School of Medicine Morgan Levine, Ph.D.,  was vital in the creating of the Index. Today, the investigation is powered by the proprietary Elysium Health chip, produced in conjunction with Illumina. The chip uses the APEX – Algorithmic Platform for Epigenetic Examination to evaluate and examine epigenetics from a saliva specimen.

How Can I Increase My NAD Naturally?

That’s where nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) comes into play. As I said earlier, your body contains less than 2mg of NAD; however, this is enough to increase the power and stamina in your body. The power you have depends on the amount of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). When the body lacks NAD, the body becomes weak, causes fatigue, and is sluggish. When the body has enough, it is now able to increase the power and stamina of the individual. This is because the NAD can also act as an antioxidant that keeps the cells of the body and organs safe from the damaging side effects of the oxidation process. Once your body has more NAD, you will increase the power and stamina of your body.

Does Elysium Basis Have Resveratrol?

The FDA has determined that Elysium Basis contains resveratrol. When you look at the label, there’s no indication of that in the product name or the ingredient label. As a condition of approval for the sale of Elysium Basis, Elysium Basis was required to submit a risk evaluation and mitigation strategy to the FDA. One section of that document refers to, “Two ingredients in the new product, an extract of red grapes and a new chemical substance, resveratrol.

Furthermore, since January 2017, Elysium Basis has also been required to publish a product description on the company’s website, which contains no reference to resveratrol. Why Does Elysium Basis Have Resveratrol? There are many potential uses for resveratrol, but as noted in the section above, “In January 2017, Elysium Basis was required to submit a risk evaluation and mitigation strategy to the FDA. One section of that document refers to, ‘Two ingredients in the new product, an extract of red grapes and a new chemical substance, resveratrol.

Conclusion

That said, Elysium Health has lots of things to change, starting with its transparency. The pterostilbene in its composition is debatable, although you can talk to your GP about it.

The NR proportion is still reasonable, albeit not as good as that offered by its competitor company Tru Niagen.

Tru Niagen BetterIf the company were open about its manufacturing process and where it gets the nicotinamide riboside, Elysium Basis would be a product I could get behind. It doesn’t help that you have to pay more for it either.

This money is supposed to account for the pterostilbene and the six Nobel scientists in the scientific advisory
board, but they’re not endorsing Elysium supplements – they simply act as consultants.

Elysium, on the other hand, tries to make them seem actively involved in the creation of its NR, which is just false advertising.

So things being as they are, TruNiagen is always a better option for me. The price and discounts are way better too.

Best Sulforaphane Supplement

7 Best Sulforaphane Supplements (2021) | Does It Work or NOT?

My ten-year-old niece is autistic and has difficult-to-manage symptoms. She has few friends because she’s not comfortable with touching and jokes.

I started researching the advantages of sulforaphane as soon as I found out that this substance has similar effects to resveratrol on autism.

My niece is now happier and more adapted, plus I’ve discovered how to include sulforaphane in my diet, how to help my family, friends, and my clients.

I’ve recommended supplementation that includes active myrosinase to clients who’ve complained about joint pain, difficulties coping with post-cancer recovery, weak immune systems, and skin issues. All of them are now happier and healthier, and so can you.

Read the article below to find out which the best supplementation is. I’ll tell you all about this substance’s side effects and benefits, how it affects the liver, and how you can increase your daily intake. Read along!

Review Summary:

  • 1. Avmacol

What is Sulforaphane?

Sulforaphane, aka broccoli sulfur, is a powerful chemical compound in cruciferous vegetables. It is an isothiocyanate hydrolyzed from glucosinolate glucoraphanin when the enzyme myrosinase is present. This enzyme activates when you chew, cut, or squash these cruciferous veggies.

Sulforaphane

Every time you chew a piece of broссoli or cabbage, you activate this almost magical-like potion that has been shown to decrease the risk of cancer cell growth, to fight against dangerous inflammation, plus to boost your heart, gut, and brain care. It suppresses and blocks the activation of transcription factors such as NF-Kappa B. One thing that keeps popping up in these studies as a significant factor in the development of cancer is how often people eat cruciferous vegetables. I wasn’t really a fan.

The content of foods varies depending on what you eat. Cruciferous vegetables have the biggest amount.

If you’re wondering how much sulforaphane in broссoli you can eat, one cup of it has 30 mg.

SUMMARY: It is a chemical compound found in cruciferous vegetables with plenty of effects on your brain care, digestive system, and bones.

What Are the Health Benefits of Sulforaphane? Any Side Effects?

Foods with sulforaphane have been proven effective against a wide array of illnesses because this substance boosts your levels of antioxidants; it decreases inflammation and fights toxicity.

NRF2

It activates the NRF2 pathway against inflammation, which is why it’s such a powerful substance for joint pain, heart issues, and even cancer.

Popular science has praised cruciferous vegetables as a miraculous cancer cure for some time. Apparently, you need as few as three servings per week to reduce the risk of cancer by a third.

Sulforaphane from broccoli and seeds is the most effective. Some studies that ascertain its effects refer to:

It is usually safe and poses no risks because it’s a naturally-occurring substance. Some people have complained about some minor side effects:

The biggest problem with supplementation is the lack of enough human studies to ensure the correct dosage for safety purposes.

SUMMARY: It has been proven effective against cancer, heart, gut, and brain issues. It is a safe compound, but supplementation can trigger some mild GI distress.

Is Sulforaphane Good for the Liver?

It is good for the liver because cruciferous vegetables protect against liver toxicity, and it is naturally found in them.

Liver Foods fight inflammation and remove toxicity.

The benefits of broccoli sprouts include getting rid of toxic substances.

This supplementation increases your antioxidant levels and dissolves airborne pollutants.

Many studies show that vegetables:

SUMMARY: All evidence points that sulforaphane helps the liver get rid of the toxic substances in your body and to protect itself better.

How Do You Increase Sulforaphane?

There are two ways to increase sulforaphane: choosing the supplementation with the biggest bioavailability and eating fresh broccoli.

Bioavailability refers to your body’s capacity to absorb. To ensure big bioavailability:

  • Get enough C6H11NOS2 from your diet
  • Pick a brand with myrosіnase because this enzyme turns glucoraphanіn into it

According to Johns Hopkins University, the bioavailability of supplementation is:

  • 70% pure C6H11NOS2
  • 35% glucoraphanin with myrosіnase
  • 10% only glucoraphanіn

Another way to increase sulforaphane in your diet is to grow brocсoli at home. This is Dr. Rhonda Patrick’s preferred method, although not everyone may have time for it.

Eat Broccoli

Eating your own C6H11NOS2 foods can be your great option, but remember that cooking reduces the strength of myrosinase, so it’s excellent to:

  • Eat raw brocсoli. Cruciferous vegetable sulfur is highest in raw plants.
  • Add raw ground mustard seeds to increase sulforaphane up to four times because these seeds contain all the myrosіnase you need

SUMMARY: You can increase C6H11NOS2 is you buy the supplementation with the biggest bioavailability, consume fresh brocсoli, or add mustard seeds to your cooked cruciferous veggies.

Avmacol vs Broccomax

Does Avmacol working, or is BroccoMax better? It’s important to choose according to your needs, so read this comparison below.

Versus Broccomax

  • Who made them. Avmacol is developed in combination with Dr. Brian Cornblatt from Johns Hopkins and has been proven effective in plenty of clinical studies. BroccoMax is made by a reputable German company called Jarrow in a cGMP facility.

  • Effectiveness. Avmacol is the top vegan supplementation for researchers observed an improvement in behavioral symptoms associated with autism according to a 2018 study, but BroccoMax has been shown to help a lot of people too.
  • Healthy ingredients. Avmacol contains broccoli seeds and sprouts, wasabi, and vitamin C, plus no artificial ingredients. BroccoMax has clean, healthful, hypoallergenic ingredients too, but also rice maltodextrin, which has lots of carbs.
  • Bioavailability. Both vegan supplementation offer about 30mg glucoraphanin in combination with myrosinase, so they have similar bioavailability around 35%. However, Avmacol contains additional vitamin C, which has been shown to increase the bioavailability of dietary supplementation.
  • Healthy ingredients. Avmacol is a combination of broссoli and sprout extract, plus vitamin C and wasabi for added micronutrients. This product has no gluten, and the easy-to-swallow capsules have BPA-free packaging.
  • 35% bioavailability. Avmacol is a strong supplement because the broссoli-derived ingredients contain glucoraphanin, while wasabi is packed with myrosіnase, the enzyme that helps you produce more.

SUMMARY: Avamcol is endorsed by more clinical trials that prove its effectiveness and has fewer carbs than BroccoMax. Both vegan supplementation use high-grade ingredients and have similar bioavailability levels. Check their website.

How to Pick the Right

The first thing to consider when choosing a sulforaphane supplementation is the amount of sulforaphane you will get. This depends on the formula but also on how your body works.

The great supplementation is those who use day-old broccoli sprouts because they’re effective and value-for-money.

How to Pick the Right Sulforaphane Supplements

Broccoli seed extract used in supplementation like Thorne Crucera is the most effective, but it’s also expensive, while mature broccoli plants have the least amount of sulforaphane.

Remember to take into account the supplements’:

  • Bioavailability (I already mentioned it here)
  • Quality ingredients (no GMOs, no allergens, clean ingredients)
  • Manufacturing facility (safety certifications, country)
  • Positive reviews and endorsements (customer reviews, clinical trials, celebrity endorsements)
  • User-friendliness (price, how easy it is to swallow, the customer help)

SUMMARY: Choose the top products depending on your needs. If you have serious problems, pick a supplement with the biggest concentration of sulforaphane. If you don’t have issues, but you feel like you aren’t eating enough cruciferous veggies, you can get an affordable supplementation with a smaller concentration. You can verify our authenticity from various other online resources.

Is Sulforaphane Anti Inflammatory?

Sulforaphane is a natural part of the broccoli sprout extract. It’s the compound responsible for the cancer-fighting effects. And it’s easy to see why it’s so good for you. Sulforaphane is a big antioxidant and plays a big role in fighting the bad stuff, reducing free radical damage. The free radical damage contributes to inflammation and is one of the culprits behind a whole range of illnesses including cardiovascular disease, autism, Alzheimer’s, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and even depression. The Science Behind Sulforaphane Sulforaphane inhibits the ability of the enzyme epicatechins to bind to a cell surface receptor called HTK5. This is the cellular receptor that causes harmful inflammation. So, by having less ability to bind to this receptor, Sulforaphane stops inflammation from occurring. Sulforaphane also stops the conversion of vitamin K2 into potassium by blocking a receptor called potassium-dependent protein kinase kinase (KRPK) and the inhibition of this enzyme stops blood clots.

Using Sulforaphane on Cancer. Interestingly, the cancer-fighting effects of sulforaphane aren’t always beneficial on their own. Almost all cancer foods including nuts, seeds, berries, greens, soy, fish, blueberries, chia seeds, coffee, tea, and supplements contain selenium and sulforaphane (the plant version). I have said this many times. The only ones who do not eat cancer-fighting foods like these are cancer patients. Study. Researchers have found that sulforaphane makes cancer cells more susceptible to chemical agents. That’s what makes foods high in sulforaphane such good cancer fighters. We know that many cancers feed off of chemical “waste” that is created when normal cells get damaged. However, the research team found that mice fed regular chow also fed high levels of sulforaphane were exposed to high levels of hydrogen peroxide, a chemical that damages the DNA of cancer cells.

How Do You Maximize Sulforaphane?

Tomato leaves (sauteed with chopped garlic), carrots, and greens are probably your best bets, Dr. Luhrmann said. He added that kale and spinach contain the best Sulforaphane concentrations—and you don’t have to overcook them to get the highest levels. The key is to cook, and the best method is steaming, sous vide, or tossing the leaves in olive oil and roasting them. The toughest one to cook is the sweet potato; it’s got the highest concentration of Sulforaphane, but it’s tough to digest, so you’re better off cooking the white potato and adding them to a salad, Luhrmann said.

For liver-protecting food, Dr. Luhrmann said you can’t beat eating eggs. But if you’re trying to follow the Paleo diet, you’re out of luck. (Unless you like a little sausage with your grits, or eat very few animal products.) But if you don’t want to eat animals at all, Luhrmann added that eggs are high in proteins and shouldn’t be entirely off-limits. And even though it’s not exactly the same as the green.

Do Broccoli Sprouts Supplements Work?

The answer: There is not enough evidence to make any general recommendations, but is there a potential advantage of having more broccoli sprouts in the diet. One 2011 study found that broccoli sprouts might help reduce urinary tract infections (UTI). In this study, participants were given either 600 mg of broccoli sprouts or a placebo before and after six visits to the doctor for a UTI. The placebo group took fewer antibiotics in the days following their UTI than did the broccoli sprouts group. The researchers noted that the trial was small and that further studies are needed. However, they also pointed out that further studies of this kind are needed for lots of other nutrients, too, not just dietary supplements. Other Benefits of Broccoli Sprouts. Consuming cruciferous vegetables is thought to provide other health benefits, including reducing cancer risk.

Our Verdict. Are Sulforaphane Supplements Effective?

If you’ve read this article, you know that some sulforaphane supplements are effective, and not all of them can address the same issues.

For instance, BrocElite, with its Stabilized™ formula, is the most powerful supplement in this review. This supplement is good for people with intense pain or chronic issues.
