Rapid changes brought on by technology in recent decades has transformed the way we work, learn, socialize and even exercise. Technology has also opened doors into research on the science of aging, giving new hope for eradicating diseases and preventing disabilities associated with old age. Now, breakthroughs in science have uncovered the secrets to longevity, with promising outlooks for combating signs of aging.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a powerful coenzyme found in every living cell that plays a key role in maintaining health and vitality. While your body makes NAD+ from the foods you eat, levels decline with age. Supplementing with NAD+ IV therapy can help restore healthy NAD+ levels, to turn back the clock on aging in multiple ways.
How to Turn Back the Clock on Aging with NAD+
1. Optimize mitochondrial function
Mitochondria are small organelles located within each cell of your body. They are often called the powerhouses of your cells because they are responsible for energy metabolism. NAD is a primary mediator of mitochondrial health and function.
The size and number of mitochondria in each cell depends on several things:
- The location of the cell (liver, brain, muscle, etc.)
- The age and health status of the individual
- The physical activity level of the individual — regular exercise increases the size and number of mitochondria in muscle tissue
- NAD levels — cellular NAD declines as you age, starting around middle age, unless you take measures to optimize it, such as NAD+ IV therapy
2. Boost energy
Without proper mitochondrial function in your cells, you are likely to feel fatigued and lethargic. NAD deficiency profoundly affects the ability of cellular mitochondria to manufacture ATP, the energy molecule. NAD IV therapy can put the pep back in your step by repairing the mitochondria in your muscle cells.
3. Repair DNA
Researchers are making strong connections between DNA damage, aging, and the higher incidence of metabolic disorders in aging populations, including cancer. DNA damage amounts to tiny lesions in the DNA strands. Under normal circumstances, your body detects and repairs DNA damage as quickly as possible, but it needs NAD+ to do so. Low NAD+ levels in older adults reduce your body’s ability to repair DNA, including the shortening of telomeres. Telomeres are sequences of non-coding DNA that protect chromosomes from damage. Shortened telomere length is a key marker of aging.
4. Increase lean muscle mass
Sarcopenia is a condition of aging where your lean muscle mass begins to atrophy, dramatically reducing your strength and energy, and increasing your risk of falls and injury. A number of studies have identified NAD+ as a key player in muscle loss, due to reduced mitochondrial oxidative capacity and the ability to synthesize NAD+. In addition, several studies have linked sarcopenia to mitochondrial dysfunction in motor neurons.
5. Shed excess body fat
When your mitochondria are unable to convert dietary fat and glucose to energy, excess calories get stored as body fat. By improving your mitochondrial function and increasing your lean muscle mass, you can speed up energy metabolism and begin to shed excess pounds. NAD+ IV therapy combined with regular exercise is key to maintaining a healthy body weight as you age while boosting your energy levels.
6. Restore optimal brain function
Degenerative brain disorders are sometimes referred to as Type 3 diabetes because the brain cells become insulin resistant. New research suggests that this phenomenon arises from decreased mitochondrial function, where the brain cells are unable to metabolize glucose to make ATP. NAD deficiency is directly linked to dysfunction in brain cell mitochondria.
7. Prevent and reverse metabolic disease
Metabolic disorders like insulin resistance, hypertension and heart disease are all lifestyle-related diseases that can be prevented and reversed, but the ability to do so depends on the functional health of your mitochondria. Combining NAD+ IV therapy with regular exercise, a nutrient-dense diet, adequate sleep and other healthy lifestyle behaviors can help prevent and even reverse diseases associated with aging.
NAD+ IV Therapy in NYC
You don’t have to participate in a research experiment to start reaping the benefits of anti-aging NAD+ therapy, and you don’t even have to see a doctor. NAD+ is a nutrient, not a drug, so it can be safely infused as a supplement without a prescription, and without the dangerous side effects of prescription medications.
Research has shown that NAD is most effective when delivered by IV infusion therapy.
IV therapy bypasses your digestive tract, where many supplements lose their potency, and delivers NAD+ directly to your bloodstream. From there, it is quickly transported to your cells, where it gets to work to repair, replenish and rejuvenate.
You can get NAD IV therapy in NYC at Invita Cryo on Broadway. Contact us today, and turn back the clock on aging so you can live your best life for years to come!
