NAD+ IV Therapy
NAD, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is a coenzyme in all living cells essential to energy production. NAD is a key part of the Mitochondria cellular energy conversion process your body used to convert food into energy. Mitochondria generate approximately 90% of your bodies energy and are essential for organ function and sustaining life. As we age, mitochondria can become damaged, causing cells to lose energy. Similarly, our ability to naturally produce NAD+ reduces with age. Reasons the body’s natural reserve of NAD could become depleted are:
- Post-traumatic stress
- Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)
- Neurodegenerative diseases
- Drug or Alcohol abuse
NAD+ therapy can help boost the NAD levels in your body. Replenishing NAD through IV therapy may assist with improved brain function and cellular communication, DNA repair, reduced inflammation and help prevent aging. This treatment may offer benefits for patients who are suffering from depression, anxiety or neurodegenerative conditions.
NAD+ offers treatment protocols which may offer benefits for Anti-Aging, Neuro-regeneration, and Detoxification. NAD+ therapy also has shown promise in treatments for opiate and alcohol addiction.
HOW IS NAD THERAPY USED?
In NAD Therapy, the co-enzyme is placed in an IV and slowly dripped into the blood stream. This allows the substance to bypass the stomach (where analgesic medication breaks down) and travel directly to the brain. This provides the individual with a boost of energy, providing enhanced mood and awareness. It has also been claimed to slow the aging process.
