NAD's Role in Your Metabolism
NAD works on mitochondria and increases the length of telomeres, which are the protective caps located at the ends of chromosomes that become shorter as the body ages. NAD increases the activity of SIRT1 and PARP 1 proteins, which are linked with a slower rate of aging and influencing DNA repair respectively. – source
- NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, a naturally occurring coenzyme molecule that may provide powerful anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.

What is NAD+?
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD is a powerful coenzyme that naturally occurs in all mammals. As a coenzyme, its main purpose is to assist enzymes in the body undertake cellular functions that include:
- energy transfer
- reduction of molecules
NAD occurs in two forms, an oxidized form, NAD+ and a reduced form, NADH. While NAD+ is involved in energy transfer, its reduced form, NADH is the body’s most powerful antioxidant, responsible for eliminating free radicals in the body.
Why is NAD in its different forms so important to the body? When you are young, your body has high levels of NAD. These high levels ensure your cells have a good supply of energy and the body has low levels of free radicals. As you age, NAD levels begin to fall. This results in less energy available to your cells and an increase in free radicals.
When this happens, your cells begin to malfunction. This malfunctioning is what we call aging. From this, signs of aging such as reduced muscle performance, diminished brain function, diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and others emerge.
Scientists have found that by increasing NAD levels in the body, signs of aging can be reduced and even reversed. These outcomes may result because NAD can help return your cells to the state they were in when you were young. In other words, NAD can turn back your cells’ biological clock. NAD-induced age reversal can lead to increased athletic and muscle performance, enhanced brain function and health, improved mood, faster recovery from hangovers and better drug rehabilitation outcomes.
What is NAD+ IV Therapy?
Over time, as your NAD levels drop, you need to replenish them to ensure your cells continue to function at optimal levels. Although there are several ways you can take an NAD+ supplement, the most effective and efficient method is through NAD+ IV therapy. NAD+ IV therapy channels the substance directly into your bloodstream, ensuring one hundred percent bioavailability of the substance to your body.
Unlike ingesting an NAD+ supplement, IV therapy bypasses the harsh stomach environment to deliver NAD+ in its purest form straight into your bloodstream. Because of this, you experience faster and more enhanced benefits, allowing you to bounce back faster.

Why Get NAD+ IV Therapy?
NAD+ for More Energy
NAD works closely with mitochondria, the “batteries” of the body, to provide energy to cells. With an increased supply of NAD, mitochondria and other energy-related bioprocesses work more efficiently, delivering more energy to cells. This heightened availability of cellular energy translates into an overall sense of more bodily energy and vitality.
NAD+ for Resistance to Disease
Diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s,3 multiple sclerosis, various cancers,4 and cardiovascular disease are all caused by a chain reaction of cellular defects and failures. As the top coenzyme in the body, low NAD levels are directly or indirectly linked to the development of these diseases. NAD+ IV therapy boosts NAD levels in the body, which may help stop and reverse these negative disease-causing chain reactions.
NAD+ for Anti-aging
In a 2017 NAD Harvard study, scientists subjected two-year-old mice cells to NAD therapy. After therapy, the cells resembled those of six-month-old mice. In terms of human years, this would be the equivalent of sixty-year-old cells resembling twenty-year-old cells. This experiment demonstrates the potential anti-aging power of NAD.
NAD+ for Weight Management
Because of its energy enhancing properties, NAD is also closely related to metabolism, a key factor in weight management. Low NAD levels result in reduced cellular energy, which then results in a depressed basal metabolic rate (BMR). NAD+ IV therapy supplies more NAD to the body, which can boos metabolism and increase the body’s ability to burn calories while at rest.
NAD+ for Elimination of Free Radicals
Free radicals are charged molecules that accumulate in the body and negatively affect cellular functioning.5 For instance, free radicals are known to inhibit mitochondrial functioning. When administered, NAD+ transforms to NADH, the body’s most powerful antioxidant. NADH significantly reduces the number of free radical molecules in the body, allowing cellular processes to operate at optimal levels.
NAD+ for Boosted Immunity
Low immunity and autoimmune diseases are associated with low levels of NAD in the body. NAD boosts immunity by increasing the amount of oxygen entering cells, as well as enhancing other immunity factors associated with fighting infection and reducing inflammation. NAD+ IV therapy may be beneficial for anyone struggling with recurrent infections and low immunity levels.
NAD+ for Enhanced Cognitive Functioning
The brain relies on high levels of cellular energy to function well. When NAD levels are low, cellular energy levels also go down. Through NAD+ IV therapy, availability of cellular energy is enhanced.
This can lead to better cognitive functioning outcomes such as enhanced memory, sharper and longer concentration, mental clarity and overall brain health.
NAD+ for Better Muscle and Athletic Performance
With advancing age and frequent exertion, muscles lose their strength and vitality.
This muscular degeneration is primarily caused by low levels of NAD, which in turn prevents mitochondria from supplying adequate amounts of energy to muscle cells.
With NAD+ IV therapy, NAD levels are restored, allowing mitochondria to supply adequate amounts of energy to the muscles, keeping them strong and healthy for longer.
How Long Does NAD+ IV Therapy Take?
When you schedule an NAD+ IV, the treatment will be organized as a multi-week treatment plan with multiple IVs administered throughout the treatment.
How Does A NAD+ Delivery IV Appointment Work?
Drip Hydration NAD+ IV therapy treatments are not only effective but very convenient too. When you book an appointment, our nurse will come to your desired location in New York. The nurse will come with all the necessary equipment, so you will not need to get anything for the appointment.
The nurse will then set up the IV and position the IV bag over your head, a well-accepted practice in the medical field as it utilizes gravity to drip the IV contents into your arm. We recommend having a comfortable chair or sofa that you can sit in as the IV is administered. The nurse will then connect the IV bag to your arm via a slender catheter and tubing.
Once set up, all you need to do is sit back and relax as the IV fluid enters your bloodstream. We recommend planning some passive activities to do during the session. You could watch TV, read a book or do anything else that you can enjoy while seated. Our nurse will be on hand to monitor the entire process.
