NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells, and it’s required for the fundamental biological processes that make life possible. But NAD+ levels decline as we age. NAD+ has two general sets of reactions in the human body: helping turn nutrients into energy as a key player in metabolism and working as a helper molecule for proteins that regulate other biological activity.
Drugs, alcohol, stress, medications, chronic illness and age all contribute to a decrease in our NAD+ stores. As NAD+ goes down, so does our energy. Cells age and deteriorate, and health weakens at the very root.
NAD+ IV therapy aims to undo that process by replenishing NAD+. Using IV infusion we administer this anti-aging compound directly into patients’ blood circulation so their cells have access to as much as they need.
These processes are incredibly important because they are responsible for regulating oxidative stress and circadian rhythms while maintaining the health of DNA and keeping humans healthier for longer. Compelling research has shown that supplementing with NAD+ may help patients withdraw from addictive substances safely, overcome anxiety and depression, handle acute and chronic stress more effectively, and cope better with PTSD.
Clinics across the US are starting to use IV infusions of NAD+ to help people withdraw from drug and alcohol addiction with minimal symptoms in as little as 7-14 days of treatment. Many of these individuals report feeling calm and content and say they lost their “cravings” after a full course of treatment. Some physicians believe NAD+ may protect DNA, slow down aging and help restore function in neurodegenerative illness due to its effects on the genes that govern aging.
Between 3-14 consecutive days of NAD+ therapy combined with amino acid infusions, minerals, and B-Vitamins are typically recommended for full effect. Treatment is tailored to the patient’s individual needs after a detailed consultation with the physician.
