What is NAD+?
NAD and NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) occur naturally in your body and are found in all living cells. They play a major role in the chemical process of generating energy. NAD+ depletion has been associated with hallmarks of aging and may underlie a wide range of age-related diseases, such as metabolic disorders, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders.
Emerging evidence implicates that elevation of NAD+ levels may slow or even reverse the aspects of aging and also delay the progression of age-related diseases.
To receive NAD+ into your body efficiently, an IV infusion is recommended to provide you with 100% bioavailability. There are NAD oral supplements available. However, it is very difficult to absorb NAD+ across the gastrointestinal tract. This is a holistic, all-natural way to help your body fight against aging and illness to feel healthier and more youthful.
NAD+ works quickly to repair cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain. When NAD+ levels are increased, cells produce more energy, good genes are activated, DNA is repaired and many other functions are optimized.
What Are The Benefits of NAD+
- Slows cognitive decline
- Promotes healthy brain function
- Fights chronic fatigue
- Increases energy
- Boosts metabolism
- Regenerates cells
- Slows aging
- Reduces internal inflammation
At the completion of treatment, clients often report the mental fogginess they’ve been experiencing has been lessened or eliminated. Many other reported benefits include: improved energy, memory, concentration and mood.
Why is NAD+ Important?
NAD+ is required not only for life but for a long life! NAD+ levels naturally decline by more than 50% as we age, leading to cellular dysfunction and an inability for the body to repair DNA damage. NAD+ offers a neuroprotective effect, guarding the nerves against demyelination.
It may even act itself as a neurotransmitter (involved in cell-to-cell communication) not only within the central nervous system but also systemically. Increased NAD+ levels work to improve concentration, memory, and mood.
Enzymes known as sirtuins play a major role in the body’s aging process through DNA protection and inflammation regulation. Sirtuins are dependent on NAD+ to stop and start the protective pathways that have links to the pathologies of age-related diseases. This means that sirtuins and NAD+ are able to halt the genes that promote aging, fat storage, and blood sugar management issues.
NAD+ for Alcohol & Opiate Detox
NAD+ has been linked to brain renovation and drastically reduces drug dependence by rejuvenating the opiate receptors. Restoration of proper brain biochemistry helps to break the addiction. NAD+ replenishes brain nutrients that have been depleted by substance abuse.
NAD+ IV therapy has also been shown to aid in the addiction recovery process. By reducing withdrawal symptoms, this therapy can make the cessation process easier and give patients a better chance of avoiding relapse. It is, however, important to note that NAD IV therapy is not a cure or treatment for addiction itself.
