Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme present in almost all cells of the body. Although we naturally produce NAD+ it, like most things, it reduces with age. This “miracle” molecule is mostly regarded for its effect on aging and is considered the closest we’ve gotten to a “fountain of youth”. Low NAD+ levels have been linked to health concerns like aging and chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and vision loss. Fortunately, we can supplement our own NAD+ through an IV, injections or oral medication. NAD+ activates enzymes in the bloodstream called “sirtuins,” which promote the “good” aspects of your genes, facilitating staying healthier longer and reducing the side effects of aging.
What is NAD+?
NAD+ is essential in metabolic function, slows the aging process, promotes athletic function, boosts brain repair and function, NAD+ is also considered the diamond standard in functional addiction medicine for alcohol and substance withdrawal symptoms.
NAD+ acts as fuel for many key biological processes, such as:
- Converting food into energy
- Repairing damaged DNA
- Fortifying cells’ defense systems
- Setting your body’s internal clock or circadian rhythm
How does NAD+ work?
With NAD+ therapy, the molecule works rapidly to repair cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain. It serves as a catalyst in ultimate brain renovation, allowing us to mentally reach higher than ever before and helps overcome depression, anxiety and common mood disorders. With optimal brain function, you can make everyday a good day.
What are the reported benefits of NAD+?
- Increases metabolism
- Increases energy
- Pain alleviation
- Reduces inflammation
- Promotes healthy muscle aging
- Alleviates opiate or substance withdrawal symptoms
- Prevents and correct DNA damage
- Anti-aging benefits
- May lower heart disease risk
- May lower cancer risk
How is NAD+ administered?
NAD+ can be administered via an IV, injections, or through an oral medication. Administering a high dose of NAD+ straight into the bloodstream via an IV or injection, compared to other routes (i.e. oral) will provide a faster, more effective outcome and quickly optimizes the body’s NAD+ levels.
