WHAT IS NAD+ IV THERAPY, AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
NAD+ or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is found in every living cell in your body. While it is linked to hundreds of processes within the body, it primarily fuels two types of reactions. It aids metabolic processes by helping turn nutrients into energy and works as a molecular partner for regulatory proteins. To put it simply, NAD+ is a helper molecule. It is a coenzyme that binds to other enzymes to help create necessary reactions between molecules. Without these processes, your body could not live.
NAD+ IV Therapy
As we age, our NAD+ levels decline, but thankfully we can restore them with NAD regenerative therapy, also known as NAD IV Therapy. NAD IV Therapy offers patients the ability to access many benefits after a comfortable routine office visit. Several of our patients enjoy the 90-minute break from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Your NAD IV treatments are your personal time to replenish your body and spirit.
The Benefits of NAD+ IV Therapy
NAD IV therapy delivers nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) instantly into your bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system, allowing more of the coenzyme to be received by your body.
NAD+ for Pain
Much of the pain felt in the human body is due to inflammation. The body’s natural anti-inflammatory responses are fueled by Sirtuins, which need NAD as a precursor. Increasing the body’s NAD+ levels through NAD regenerative therapy replenishes the coenzyme needed by Sirtuins to reduce inflammation in the human body.
NAD+ for Aging
The sirtuin Sir2p plays a vital role in the aging process. Using NAD IV Therapy increases the effectiveness of Sir2p, which aids in fueling the overall longevity and lifespan of the body. This increased ability of Sir2p can reduce visible signs of aging such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and wrinkles.
NAD+ For Cognition
NAD+ plays a pivotal role in a whole host of cognitive functions. It boosts neurological function and slows the process of cognitive decline. Because Sirtuins cannot function without NAD+, the coenzyme is critical to achieving the following mental functions:
- Memory retention
- Mood balance
- Brain regeneration
- Focusing attention
- Clear thinking
NAD+ For Energy
Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP is the molecular currency of the human body. It is the storehouse from which our cells draw energy. ATP fuels many processes we depend on to function properly, such as breathing or tightening muscles like those we use to swallow our food or smile. NAD IV Therapy assists the body in producing ATP, which increases energy levels and reduces fatigue.
NAD+ For Athletes
Getting your head in the game takes clear mental focus, high cognitive function, and memory retention, all of which are enhanced by the Sirtuins that call on NAD+ to do their work. Athletes who use NAD boost cognitive function, improving reaction time. The NAD+ coenzyme plays a critical role in the development of strong muscle tissue, a necessary component of strength training for performance athletes.
NAD+ for Weight Loss
The coenzyme NAD+ is involved in hundreds of metabolic processes, making it a vital component of any healthy weight loss plan. When combined with a proper diet and exercise regimen, NAD IV Therapy allows patients to maintain a healthy weight.
NAD+ For Disease Prevention
Recent research reveals a link between NAD+ and multiple conditions, including numerous cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Increased levels of NAD can boost immunity and help to prevent the onset of illness.
NAD+ for Addiction Recovery
Addiction is a complex disease of the brain, which makes quitting the use of mind-altering substances hard. Although the use of an addictive substance may be voluntary initially, the reward centers in the brain flood the mind with dopamine, creating a pleasure causing euphoria for each use of the substance. This rewarding sensation creates a dependency that alters the brain, and thus, addiction. Creating new neural pathways in the mind and learning new behaviors takes much work for a person living with addiction. The recovery journey begins with cessation from the initial chemical causing dependency. NAD IV Therapy helps ease withdrawal symptoms, assisting the mind’s regenerative processes and boosting your mood.
