Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an important coenzyme found naturally within the living cells of all mammals. NAD+ is actually the oxidized form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is derived from Vitamin B3 or Niacin and is essential for cells to make energy.
NAD+ plays a crucial role in the cellular metabolism. Without taking you too far back to high school chemistry class, NAD+ helps to transfer energy from the foods you eat into usable cellular energy called ATP. All cells need ATP energy to function at optimum capacity. ATP is fuel for the body, especially heart and skeletal muscle and brain function.
By the way… NADH is also known as “CoEnzyme 1” and is necessary to convert CoEnzyme Q10 into an antioxidant. Taking CoQ supplements without adequate NADH misses the full potential of CoQ.
The enzymes that catalyze energy production as well as the mitochondria itself can be damaged by numerous toxins that cause oxidative or free radical damage, including cigarette smoke, drugs, electromagnetic waves from cell phones and wi-fi, and a plethora of chemicals including pthalates, parabens, pesticides, benzene, styrene, toluene, and more.
Nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise and chronic stress are also issues that can impair mitochondrial energy production.
The bottom line is that NAD+ levels within the body gradually decrease as we age. The result? Less efficient metabolism on a cellular level. Decreased NAD+ levels can have a devastating effect on all areas of the body and contributes to the common telltale signs of aging, such as:
- Age spots
- Brain Fog
- Dry Skin
- Fine Lines
- Forgetfulness or Memory Loss
- Hearing loss
- Increased Fat Storage (especially dangerous liver and belly fat)
- Insulin Resistance
- Loss of Muscle
- Sagging Skin
- Thinning Hair
- Vascular Inflammation
- Visual loss
- Whitening or Graying of the Hair
NAD+ in a nutshell:
- Over 150+ scientific studies published
- Cofactor found in all living cells essential for cellular metabolism
- Necessary to produce ATP
- Many anti-aging properties
- Supports healthy brain function (i.e. clarity, concentration, brain fog, disease)
What if there was a way to get a compound that could turn back time, restore energy, improve athletic performance, bring back clarity of thought, reverse depression, and help cure cravings for alcohol and drugs even in the most addicted individuals into your system most efficiently?
And NAD+ may actually prolong life, protect DNA, slow down aging and help restore function in neurodegenerative illness due to its effects on the genes that govern aging.
This IV aims to undo that process by replenishing NAD+. Using IV infusion therapy we administer this anti-aging compound directly into your blood circulation so your cells have access to as much as they need.
Optimally, consecutive days of NAD+ therapy combined other tailored therapies are recommended for more robust effect. Treatment is tailored to your individual needs after a detailed consultation.
NAD+ IVs have been used since the 1960s to help individuals detoxify from alcohol and opioid dependencies. Compelling research has shown that supplementing with NAD+ may help you withdraw from addictive substances safely, overcome anxiety and depression, handle acute and chronic stress more effectively, and cope better with PTSD.
