NAD+ IV Drip Therapy
This emerging nutrient IV therapy is a holistic option for those suffering from chronic disease and age-related health issues and can boost overall wellness in healthy individuals.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is one of the most essential molecules in your body. You’ll find it in every single cell working in more chemical reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule. The body naturally produces NAD, but as the body ages, overall levels of this important coenzyme decrease and leads to the development of age-related conditions.
Habits such as overeating and excessive alcohol consumption can also lead to a decline in NAD+. Unfortunately, low levels of NAD+ have been linked to health issues like premature skin aging, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, and vision loss.
NAD+ IV therapy is a treatment that seeks to replenish the levels of this vital molecule in your body with a solution administered through an IV.
Restoring and supplementing NAD in the body can improve physical appearance, health, and quality of life.
How it works:
When taken 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.
You should notice an energy boost with one drip but for full benefits, a monthly drip for a few months is optimal.
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.
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+ therapy works by supplying energy that is needed on the cellular level in order to heal.
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 poly ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs), which repair damaged DNA.
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 the 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 sugar management issues.
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. But NAD+ can also be used by those looking for overall performance-enhancing benefits in athletic training and exercise. Research has shown that intense exercises decrease NAD+ levels, but when that level is replenished, individuals experienced better performance and greater endurance.
Those who suffer from chronic conditions may also find symptom relief with NAD+ therapy.
Conditions that may benefit from the therapy include:
• Parkinson’s disease
• Alzheimer’s disease
• Multiple sclerosis
• Mitochondrial dysfunction
Research is also being conducted on NAD+ IV as a form of addiction therapy, and studies are showing promising results. Just to clarify, the therapy is not a cure for any form of addiction, but it can aid in healing the brain on the cellular level, giving individuals a better chance at long term recovery. Experts have also noted the ability of NAD+ to reduce cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms.
NAD drips work to repair and boost your mitochondrial energy system found in every cell of the body. Improved mitochondria does not just result in a noticeable energy boost, but will improve mental focus, decrease any addictive cravings and even retard the aging process.
