NAD IV Treatment, a Closer Look: Benefits, Science, & Who it Helps

NAD IV Treatment, a Closer Look: Benefits, Science, & Who it Helps

Overview

 

NAD is a coenzyme that powers metabolic processes and impacts a wide variety of systems including digestion, cognition and mental clarity, aging, and overall energy levels.

NAD increases your body’s levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with mood regulation, and can improve symptoms of depression and anxiety.

NAD is helpful for individuals undergoing therapy for substance abuse and addiction recovery. This treatment reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms, provides energy to the body, and boosts brain regeneration.

NAD IV treatments can:

  • Assist with addiction recovery (alcohol, opioids, nicotine)
  • Improve depression
  • Improve brain health and neurological function
  • Improve mental clarity
  • Improve brain regeneration
  • Boost energy levels
  • Reduce overall fatigue
  • Restore muscle function and athletic performance

NAD also plays a large role in anti-aging treatments. Aging impacts every body system, changing everything from the way the body appears to how it metabolizes food. NAD lengthens telomeres, which are protective caps located at the ends of chromosomes that naturally get shorter as the body ages.

NAD IV treatments can improve a wide variety of symptoms that are associated with aging.

In regards to aging specifically, NAD IV treatments can:

  • Slow the aging process
  • Reverse aging
  • Restore the appearance of the skin and reduce wrinkles
  • Improve brain health and neurological function
  • Improve mental clarity
  • Improve brain regeneration
  • Boost energy levels
  • Reduce overall fatigue
  • Restore muscle function and athletic performance

The levels of NAD that naturally occur in the body decline with age. NAD IV treatments supplement this gradual decline and deliver this powerful coenzyme directly into your bloodstream, making it available to your cells for immediate use. NAD treatments last from 4 to 14 days depending on the individual.

What is NAD & How Does it Work?

Studies have shown promising results that a coenzyme known as NAD slows the aging process, improves mental clarity, restores neurologic function, and improves the body’s overall health. NAD, short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in every cell within the body and is involved in many processes.

One of its most significant roles within the body is in oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions. These reactions are a part of the metabolic system and converts food into the energy the body needs to function properly.

The other important role that NAD plays is to regulate circadian and metabolic rhythm[1]. This coenzyme maintains DNA integrity and health and also functions as a quality control mechanism for new proteins.

Among other functions, NAD plays a significant role in anti-aging. 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[2].

The body naturally produces NAD, but overall levels of the coenzyme decrease over time, leading to cellular changes that result in age-related pathologies.

Lower levels of NAD and bonds between certain types of molecules are linked to damage to DNA which, left unrepaired, accumulate over time into cell changes and mutations[3]. Restoring and supplementing NAD counteracts many of these reactions and help preserve the integrity of DNA over time.

You don’t have to wait until you are experiencing a medical condition to experience the benefits of NAD IV therapy. This versatile treatment helps promote whole-body wellness and can help your body maintain optimal performance over time.

NAD IV treatments supplement and restore the levels of this powerful coenzyme in your body. A specialized saline solution containing a concentrated dose of NAD is delivered directly into the bloodstream, making it available to your cells for immediate use. Because NAD bypasses the digestive and metabolic systems, you can expect a 100% absorption rate for maximum effect and minimal waste.

NAD IV treatments can improve many symptoms and conditions, including:

  • Slow the aging process
  • Reverse aging
  • Improve brain health and neurological function

Benefits of NAD

Research into the effects of NAD on the body is ongoing, but many studies have shown promising results of the benefits of NAD supplementation and restoration across a wide range of conditions.

Neurological

A decrease in cognitive ability is a hallmark of aging. There are many age-related neurological conditions including dementia, decreased focus, and memory problems.

NAD helps keep the brain in top condition. This coenzyme rejuvenates and restores brain function by boosting sirtuins – proteins that function as anti-aging mechanisms that slow the effects of neurodegenerative diseases and natural cognitive decline[4]. Together, NAD and sirtuins protect against toxicities in the body and improves cells’ resistance to stress[5].

NAD IV treatments can help maintain mental clarity, focus, protect mental clarity, and protect against neurodegenerative diseases for a healthier and happier quality of life.

Benefits of NAD IV Therapy for Neurological Conditions Include:

  • Improved brain health and neurological function
  • Improved mental clarity
  • Improved brain regeneration
  • Improved focus and concentration
  • Boosted mood
  • Improved memory

Metabolic Function


The term ‘metabolism’ refers to the amount of energy that is expended to maintain the body. The metabolism naturally slows with age and can lead to weight gain and lower energy levels. NAD plays a large role in normal metabolism function, which in turn helps improve weight loss and overall energy levels[6].

NAD plays an important part in the body’s oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions. These complicated chemical reactions are a part of the metabolic system and help convert food into energy that is usable by the cells. NAD accepts and donates electrons used in energy metabolism during the cellular respiration process[7].

NAD helps promote mitochondrial fitness by maintaining the mitochondrial unfolded protein response, a reaction to cell stress, by ensuring that these cells form into the correct shape[8] for normal function. NAD helps the liver break down fats that are essential to provide energy for the body. It also helps create ATP, which is a major source of energy for cells.

Benefits of NAD IV Therapy for Metabolic Function Include:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Decreased fatigue
  • Restore muscle function and athletic performance
  • Improved metabolism
  • Weight loss

Addiction and Recovery

NAD is a holistic alternative to medication-based solutions for individuals undergoing addiction and recovery treatment. NAD is especially useful for patients who want to avoid the side effects of medications.

NAD detoxifies the body, replacing essential vitamins and nutrients that are typically depleted in individuals who engage in substance abuse. NAD reduces withdrawal symptoms by binding to opiate receptors, which can help individuals overcome cravings and risk of relapse. At the same time, this powerful coenzyme naturally protects the brain and accelerates recovery[9].

Benefits of NAD IV Therapy for Addiction and Recovery Include:

  • Fewer withdrawal symptoms
  • Reduce cravings associated with withdrawal
  • Restored energy levels
  • Improved mood
  • Cell restoration
  • Improved brain function
  • Improved cognitive clarity

IV therapy for addiction and recovery is not a cure on its own, and is recommended to be used in tandem with counseling or therapy. IV therapy for addiction can last 10 – 14 days depending on the individual.

Anti-Aging

NAD plays a major role in the aging process by regulating the circadian and metabolic cycles and acting as a regulator for new proteins. Changes in metabolism can lead to the development of certain age-related pathologies; NAD plays a role in the regulation of the Sir2p family, which influence lifespan and aging[10].

This coenzyme also helps protect the integrity of DNA, which becomes damaged over time from wear and tear, duplication errors, and the damaging effects of free radicals. NAD is especially important in regulating inflammation that damages DNA over time. In addition, NAD can correct existing damage.

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[11]. Restoring and supplementing NAD in the body can improve physical appearance, health, and quality of life.

Benefits of NAD IV Therapy for Anti-Aging Include:

  • Reverse aging
  • Improve appearance
  • Restore muscle function
  • Restore athletic performance
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Boost energy levels
  • Boost metabolism
  • Prevent damage to DNA
  • Correct damage to DNA
