Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an essential coenzyme that is vital for cellular health. Growing scientific evidence suggests that NAD+ deficiency is a key contributing factor to aging, disease and metabolic dysfunction. NAD+ helps to protect and repair DNA, and is essential for all aspects of human health and wellness.
Optimizing your NAD+ levels can help to slow and even reverse the aging process, boost immunity, help with substance addiction and PTSD, and more. The best and fastest way to get NAD+ into your system and working at the cellular level is via IV infusion therapy.
Here are 10 things you should know about NAD+ IV therapy:
1. NAD+ supports mitochondrial function
Mitochondria are tiny organelles that function as energy factories in human cells. Mitochondria use oxygen to metabolize fats and carbohydrates and convert them to ATP, the energy molecule. Mitochondria rely heavily on NAD+ for the cascade of chemical reactions that produce energy from ATP.
2. NAD+ is vital for brain health
One study suggests that NAD+ works as a mediator to support brain function and mitigate the onset of brain pathologies and brain aging. With cognitive health issues on the rise, optimizing your NAD levels with IV therapy is a proactive step toward protecting your brain health.
3. The FDA has approved NAD+ IV therapy for treating substance addiction
Patients recovering from drug and alcohol addiction report significant reductions in withdrawal symptoms with NAD+ IV treatment. Considering the opioid crisis and increased alcohol abuse associated with lockdowns, NAD+ IV therapy can play an important role in helping patients to escape the clutches of addiction. The FDA notes that NAD+ therapy is enhanced when combined with amino acid IV therapy.
4. NAD+ treatment reduces symptoms of anxiety in PTSD sufferers
PTSD occurs as a result of psychological trauma from combat, rape and sexual abuse, domestic violence and other traumatic incidents. It is associated with depression, anxiety and suicide. NAD+ therapy helps to repair damaged nerve synapses that appear to be at the root of PTSD.
5. NAD+ therapy reverses signs of aging in laboratory mice
NAD+ IV therapy is especially effective in combating aging in lab mice when combined with a high-fat diet, according to one study. The study’s authors posit that NAD+ is destroyed as we age due to increased presence of a transmembrane protein called CD38. Regular NAD+ IV therapy can help replenish NAD+ levels and combat the negative effects of NAD+ deficiency on aging.
6. NAD+ protects your Central Nervous System
According to one study, NAD+ helps to protect neurons from traumatic injury, ischaemia, and stroke, and NAD+ therapy may play a role in reducing the risk of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s diseases.
7. NAD+ reduces the risk of death from COVID 19
A groundbreaking new study reveals that NAD+ deficiency increases the risk of mortality from COVID 19 in the elderly, the obese, and people with type II diabetes. Optimizing your NAD+ levels with IV therapy is a proactive way to reduce your risk of hospitalization and death from the coronavirus.
8. NAD+ enhances energy production and reduces fatigue
The role of NAD+ in the mitochondria has a direct impact on your cells’ ability to produce energy. This can have important implications for athletic performance, as well as everyday physical and mental function. Chronic fatigue is a common symptom among working adults that can be reversed with sleep, exercise and NAD treatment.
9. NAD+ IV therapy is a more effective delivery mechanism for NAD than oral supplements
Oral NAD supplements have a long road to travel before their active ingredients reach your cells. Once they are broken down in your digestive tract, they need to be absorbed by your liver and released into your bloodstream. Along the way, potency can be diminished, and much of the active ingredients may be flushed down the toilet without ever entering your system. NAD+ IV infusion therapy delivers high-dose NAD+ directly to your bloodstream and distributes it directly to your cells in a fraction of the time, with its potency intact.
10. Lifestyle factors boost the effectiveness of NAD+ IV therapy
Regular exercise and an organic whole foods diet rich in micronutrients work together with NAD+ IV therapy to maximize the effectiveness of your NAD treatment. By making simple lifestyle changes and leveraging the advantages of NAD+ IV therapy, you can combat disease and aging, and look and feel more youthful and energetic, every day of your life.
