NAD+ Therapy

What Is NAD+ IV Therapy?

NAD+ Nicotinamide Adenine Diculeotide) is a co-enzyme that is found in every cell in your body. It is required for the biological processes that are essential to sustaining life, from metabolism to DNA and cell repair, and is an essential fundamental mediator that supports overall brain health. NAD+ is needed to turn certain cells “on and off.”

NAD+ levels decline as we age, depleting the brain of neurotransmitters. These lower levels of NAD+ are often accompanied by negative health consequences. Recent studies indicate that NAD+ deficiencies can trigger a number of metabolic and degenerative diseases, including obesity, Type II Diabetes, CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.

The decline of the body’s natural levels of NAD+ is often associated with: 

  • Natural aging process
  • Neurodegenerative disease
  • Alcoholism
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Parkinson’s 
  • Post Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

    How does NAD+ Therapy work?

    When a person ingests a medication or vitamin orally, some of the active ingredients and nutrients don’t make it where they are needed most and are lost in the digestive system. When taking intravenously, infusions of NAD+ bypass the digestive system altogether and are delivered directly to your body’s cells for better absorption. This allows you to feel the effects quicker and jumpstart your body’s healing. 

    NAD+ Therapy delivered intravenously can be a blessing for your health and energy. NAD+ stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. It is a natural coenzyme of Vitamin B3 (Niacin) that is present in every cell in your body. The compound fuels metabolic reactions and drives your cells to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids. 

    Who Should Do NAD+ IV Therapy

    NAD+ therapy has benefits for everyone. As you read in the list above, it can be a helpful treatment for those feeling sluggish or always seem to be trapped in a fog. People experiencing low energy and slow metabolism are excellent candidates for therapy. Those looking for overall performance-enhancing benefits in athletic training and exercise can also use NAD+. Research has shown that intense exercises decrease NAD+ levels, but when that level is replenished, individuals experience better performance and greater endurance.

      Benefits of NAD+ IV Therapy

      Maximize Brain Function

      Cognitive decline is one of the most common effects of aging. Neurodegeneration, or the loss of neuron function and structure, causes our mind to work slower and our memories to become fuzzy. NAD+ IV serves as a brain restoration that increases neuron function, protects cells from toxins and damage, and promotes the process of mitochondrial biogenesis. This translates to increased mental clarity, improved concentration, sharpened memory, and a healthy mood boost.

      Cell Regeneration

      Increasing the levels of NAD+ throughout your body allows it to better heal itself from injury. Research shows that ATP and NAD+ may alert the body’s natural immune response when the cell is under stress or where inflammation is present. In addition to this, NAD+ is crucial to the activation of ploy ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs), which repair damaged DNA.

      Beat Fatigue

      Chronic fatigue can be a debilitating condition, and experts aren’t exactly clear on the root cause of the problem. Oftentimes, doctors prescribe a combination of sleep medication and antidepressants, which may not actually improve chronic fatigue. IV NAD+ IV Therapy works by supplying energy that is needed on the cellular level in order to heal.

      Slow Aging

      Enzymes known as sirtuins play a major role in the body’s aging process through DNA protection and inflammation regulation. Sirtuins are dependent on NAD+ to stop and start the protective pathways that have links to pathologies of age-related diseases. This means that sirtuins and NAD+ are able to turn certain genes off, almost like a light switch, that promote aging, fat storage, and blood management issues.
