WHAT IS NAD+?

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide is a coenzyme that is found in every cell of your body and you cannot live without it. NAD+ is essential for cell metabolism – the production of energy by the mitochondria in the cell that allows the specific cell to perform its role and the energy that drives your body. NAD+ levels decrease as you age, which can lead to DNA damage, chemical stress, and failing energy

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NAD+?

NAD+ has many benefits that help reverse signs of aging. Here are some of them:

  1. Promotes healthy aging by activating enzymes. For example, a group of enzymes called sirtuins improve overall health and lifespan. Further, they lower stress, repair damaged DNA, and lower inflammation. In addition, another enzyme called Poly (ADP-Ribose) polymerases (PARPs) repair damaged DNA and help you live longer.

  2. It May help with brain cell protection. NAD+ helps produce a protein called PGC-1-alpha within your brain. This protein protects brain cells from the damaged function of the mitochondria and oxidative stress. In fact, research has linked damaged mitochondria function and oxidative stress to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

  3. May reduce your risk of heart disease. As we age, our bodily functions start to decline. For instance, our blood vessels get stiffer and thicker as our blood pressure rises. As a result, our heart has to work harder. However, NAD+ helps reverse these consequences of aging.

  4. Weight loss. NAD+ boosts the metabolism process

  5. Lower risk for cancer. NAD+ protects your body from oxidative stress and DNA damage, both causes of cancer.

  6. Reduce jet lag. NAD+ helps regulate your internal clock.

  7. Support aging of healthy muscles. High levels of NAD+ help with endurance, strength, and muscle function in mice.

  8. Reverse Chronic Fatigue

  9. Super Boost Metabolism Process

  10. Increased Energy and Productivity

  11. Decreased Stress and Improved Mood

What are the side effects of NAD+?

For most people, there are no known side effects of NAD+ when taken in any form, and even with large doses. However, studies are usually short-term with few participants. In some cases, people experience:

  • Nausea

  • Diarrhea

  • Fatigue

  • Stomach pain

  • Indigestion

  • Headaches

Who should take caution with NAD+?

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should take caution when taking NAD+. Experts recommend only taking 18-17mg (respectively) or less per day. However, there is no research to verify that this is safe.

Are there any interactions between NAD+ and other drugs?

What Should I Expect During NAD IV Therapy?

Each NAD IV therapy session lasts approximately 2-4 hours. At the beginning of your treatment, your clinician will take your blood pressure and review your medical history before placing an IV line attached to the NAD drip into your arm. Once the drip has started you can read a book, watch a movie, or listen to music and relax. 

You may feel a slight tightening sensation in your chest while the NAD IV is being administered. Some patients also experience mild nausea or a mild headache, but these symptoms can be mitigated by slowing down the infusion rate. You’ll want to let your clinician know if you begin to feel any of these symptoms, so they can make any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort.

After treatment, a small bandage will be placed on the injection site. This can be removed as soon as any bleeding has stopped.

 

When Will I See Results?

One of the reasons NAD IV therapy appeals to so many people is that it requires zero recovery time and many patients see noticeable results the same day they receive the infusions. Some patients experience a feeling of dreaminess or a boost of energy immediately after treatment, though these should not impair you from returning to your normal activities.
