Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, or NAD, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It is an essential ingredient in metabolic processes and reactions that occur within the human body. All important cellular events within the human body cannot function without the presence of NAD. These include glycolysis, citric acid, or tricarboxylic acid cycle, the oxidation or breakdown of fatty acids, DNA repair, and inflammatory responses.
NAD has been called an anti-aging molecule because of the many important roles it plays in promoting health and prolonging lifespan. It offers a lot of potential for new therapeutic opportunities. Studies have shown that it can help battle many effects of aging and chronic conditions on the human body and brain.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide has two forms, in its active form, it is known as NAD+, and in its inactive form, it is known as NADH.
- Repairing and protecting DNA
- Gene expression
- Extracting cellular energy from nutrition
- Maintaining mitochondrial function
- Chromosomal integrity preservation
- Calcium signaling
- Epigenetic and posttranslational modifications
We need NAD+ to live. But, as we get older, our bodies generate less and less of the coenzyme. That is why we begin to feel the effects of aging and become more prone to age-related illnesses.
One of the ways you can supplement NAD+ in your body is through IV therapy. IV therapy is a holistic, all-natural way to help your body fight against aging and illness. It is the only way to ensure that you get 100% bioavailability from the molecule, helping your body absorb the highest possible supplemental coenzymes and convert them into molecular energy.
IV therapy is the safest and most efficient way of supplementing the coenzyme in your body.
- Slows cognitive decline
- Promotes healthy brain function
- Fights chronic fatigue
- Increases energy
- Boosts metabolism
- Regenerates cells
- Slows aging
- Reduces internal inflammation
IV NAD+ therapy may be administered to enhance memory, improve concentration, improve the ability to focus, enhance brain regeneration, and improve overall neurological function. NAD+ supplementation exerts these effects.
NAD+ is an essential cofactor in the glycolytic pathway and tricarboxylic acid pathways. These pathways result in Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) production or the energy source of the human body. NAD+ supplementation increases the ATP levels in the body, which boosts energy levels and reduces feelings of fatigue.
Athletes have used IV NAD+ therapy to enhance their athletic endurance, performance, and recovery. IV NAD+ supplementation may boost energy levels, improve cognition, and increase reaction times in athletes during competitions or other athletic events.
IV NAD+ therapy can help manage pain. NAD+ is known to exert significant anti-inflammatory actions that offer relief from pain.
IV NAD+ may benefit patients weaning off opioid, alcohol, chemical, or prescription drug dependencies. It may also minimize the severity of withdrawal symptoms. Studies have shown that NAD+ can aid in the regeneration of opiate receptors, reducing cravings and softening the effects of withdrawals. This can lead to reduced substance dependence and faster addiction recovery.
IV NAD+ is a relatively new service, and it’s important to note that the coenzyme, itself, is not a fix for addiction.
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Heart disease
- Mitochondrial dysfunction
- Multiple sclerosis
- Chronic fatigue
- Memory/concentration issues
Replenishing your body’s NAD+ levels can drastically reduce these feelings and provide additional benefits.
