NAD+ is an abundant and essential molecule for the body to maintain proper wellness. It stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide; without it, we wouldn't last very long.
The molecules are essential in the generation of cells in the body. NAD+ helps convert food energy and plays a pivotal role in maintaining the integrity of the DNA, ensuring proper cell function, and protecting the body from aging and disease.
NAD+ is known as an anti-aging molecule because it promotes a healthy lifestyle and a longer lifespan for those who maintain the proper levels at their age. Because of those properties, there is potential for NAD+ in therapeutic opportunities with IV therapy. Studies have shown that NAD+ helps patients battle many effects of aging, like chronic conditions on the human body and brain.
NAD+ is responsible for transferring electrons between molecules within the cells, carrying out reactions and processes. It, and molecules like it, are essential for sparking proper metabolic responses. It generates much of the energy that our cells get. Without sufficient levels of NAD+, the cells can't create the energy needed to survive and carry out their functions.
Other functions of NAD+ include regulating the circadian rhythm, which is responsible for controlling the sleep and wake cycles of the body.
As the body ages, NAD+ levels fall, creating implications for the body's metabolic function and age-related diseases. DNA damage can accumulate and gradually become worse as we age due to these shortages.
Reductions cause various issues over time. Obesity is one of the leading symptoms of a shortage due to the lack of regulation of metabolism—problems like obesity compound into other disorders, like insulin resistance, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
High blood pressure and declination in heart function can lead, eventually, to mental health issues like cognitive impairment, which is another issue that NAD+ IV therapy is often used to assist.
It is possible to raise natural levels of NAD+ without the need for supplementation. The ways to do this coincide with a healthy lifestyle in most general practices.
Living a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet and a decent amount of exercise will boost your NAD+ levels and benefit your mental health.
The regular, mild physical stress of the body, like fasting and exercise, stimulates the production of NAD+.
We offer IV therapy and IV nutrition options that create a variety of benefits in the body when received intravenously through the infusion of vitamins and supplements. Infusions can provide certain aspects of your health by boosting them to increase your overall feeling of wellness.
Infusing the body with NAD+ through IV drip ensures the body is getting 100% of the bioavailability of the molecule, causing it to absorb higher supplemental coenzymes and convert them into molecular energy. With this available energy, the body is more prone to a healthy metabolic state and a variety of other wellness benefits, which we list in the following section.
Allow us to break down a few of the various NAD plus IV therapy benefits that you can experience from having IV therapy with this molecule:
Mental fog is a problem that patients complain more about as they grow older. It is one of the things assisted by undergoing NAD+ therapy. Overall improvements to mental sharpness help patients feel better daily and contribute to overall wellness.
Cognitive function decline is a common side effect of getting old. Examples include forgetting things, a lack of concentration, and mental fog.
Intravenous injection of NAD+ helps activate the neurons in the brain, helping to regenerate and guard against further damage, resulting in increased mental status, cognition, and clarity. Patients report being able to concentrate better and feeling better memory function.
Boosting the function of the brain helps some patients overcome other related struggles, like depression, anxiety, and mood disorders that come with mental decline.
NAD+ therapy causes increased energy levels, putting a spring back into your step. The infusion helps to provide the energy the cells need on a molecular level, improving overall energy levels. It also enhances a healthy metabolism. A smoothly functioning metabolism helps deal with weight management issues and blood sugar levels, helping patients avoid obesity and assisting with weight loss.
NAD+ is one of the body's natural coenzymes used in cell regeneration. Supplementing it reduces inflammation and helps the body recover faster from injuries and challenging workouts.
If you suffer from reduced energy levels or feel sluggish and fatigued, with some mental decline, including mental fog, you may be an excellent fit for NAD+ IV therapy. Replenishing this molecule can drastically reduce these feelings and symptoms of aging and provide additional physical benefits.
Those who feel the effects of aging or deal with chronic age-related illnesses and conditions can be excellent candidates for finding help with this treatment; however, many healthy individuals also opt for NAD+ therapies for various reasons. Athletes, for example, often seek treatment to help enhance performance and endurance and improve recovery times after intense sessions of training.
It isn't necessary to wait until you experience these issues to start using NAD+ IV therapy to your advantage. IV supplements can help delay aging and lower the risk of medical conditions in healthy individuals and those suffering from these impairments.
Additionally, some evidence shows that NAD+ therapy can benefit those battling addiction to various substances. It can help repair brain cells damaged by substance abuse and regenerate the opiate receptors that fight cravings and the side effects of withdrawal when quitting these substances.
As we alluded to in the previous section, some promising evidence shows NAD+ IV drips can be used as a form of addiction relief. The therapy itself is not a fix for addiction, but it can help repair the brain by replenishing the cells that have been damaged by substance abuse in some instances.
NAD+ for addiction treatment is a new application, and you need to consult with a doctor during a private consultation to make sure this type of treatment is a good fit for you as you are on your road toward recovery.
Some studies have shown that NAD+ can aid in regenerating opiate receptors, reducing cravings, and softening the effects of withdrawals in some cases. This can lead to reduced substance dependence and faster recovery from addiction.
Like all our treatments, patients start the process with a private consultation with us at DrC 360. If you are interested in IV therapies for enhanced wellness and anti-aging qualities, you may be a perfect fit; a consultation will confirm this. Our treatment plans are customized to the individual, their wants, needs, and ailments.
An ordinary NAD+ session can last anywhere from 2-6 hours, and it's recommended in most cases that you have multiple sessions over a series of days to see the best results. The exact duration can vary depending on you, your unique goals, and your medical history. We discuss all of these with you in your private consultation.
Get in touch with us today, and we will be happy to start you on your journey toward wellness at DrC 360.
