NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. That might sound like a mouthful, but it’s the scientific name for a coenzyme found in all living cells. Many have referred to it as the anti-aging molecule because of the many essential roles in prolonging lifespan and promoting health. 

This coenzyme is a powerful molecule and has considerable potential for therapeutic opportunities. For example, studies have shown that it can help battle chronic conditions that affect the body and brain and help fight against the signs of aging. In addition, because this enzyme exists in nature, patients typically respond well to treatments and benefit in various ways in their overall health.

What are the benefits?

There are many treatment options for NAD, from oral supplements to injections to IV therapy. NAD+ IV therapy is the only way to ensure your body gets 100% bioavailability from this molecule. Your body will absorb the highest possible supplemental coenzymes and convert them into molecular energy. NAD+ IV therapy is the safest and most efficient supplementation of the coenzyme into your body. 

The benefits of NAD+ IV therapy include a slow cognitive decline, promotion of healthy brain function, increase in energy, and reduction in chronic fatigue. In addition, it boosts metabolism and regenerates cells, slows the aging process, reduces internal inflammation, and elevates mood. 

How often should you do NAD+?

Your current health conditions and treatment goals will determine the amount of NAD+ injection you should consider. It’s important to discuss these with your doctor before beginning any treatment regimen. It’s not uncommon for NAD+ patients to schedule IV therapy one or two times per week to meet their wellness goals.

This is the most commonly asked question we get in response to NAD+ IV therapy. NAD therapy is considered safe and effective because of the naturally occurring NAD that already exists in the body. However, it’s also important to consider that NAD+ IV therapy is precisely dosed and monitored by a medical professional after considering your specific medical history and treatment goals. 

Therefore, it results in a low risk for adverse side effects. However, this treatment has some possible side effects, including nausea, brain fog, cramping, redness or tenderness at the injection site, bruising at the injection site, infection, or Phlebitis (which is extremely rare). If a patient is experiencing these side effects, your medical professional can slow or stop the drip rate to alleviate these. 

Overall the positive effects of NAD+ IV therapy are felt relatively quickly; most patients report feeling a significant boost in their overall wellbeing and mood in the days following their injection.  

What is the difference between NAD+ Injection and NAD+ IV?

There are many options available for NAD+ supplementation. These range from oral supplements to injections to NAD+ IV Therapy. Overall, IV therapy treatments are the most popular because they provide the patient with 100% absorption. In addition, the infusion therapy can deliver NAD and other healthy vitamins directly into your bloodstream, which makes them instantly bioavailable for your cells to use. Injections are another popular option for NAD+ supplementation and are still preferred over oral supplements but can’t be given in the volume that an IV therapy can be. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for NAD+ IV Therapy?

NAD+ IV therapy can benefit anyone who suffers from reduced energy levels, feels sluggish or tired, struggles with brain fog, or has felt rundown. The key to this treatment is that it replenishes your body’s NAD+ levels, drastically reducing these feelings while providing a host of other benefits. 

People who struggle with certain age-related illnesses and chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, diabetes, mitochondrial dysfunction, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression, and chronic fatigue, or those with memory and concentration issues can all benefit from NAD+. 

However, the great news is that you don’t have to wait until you start experiencing age-related issues or illnesses, or chronic conditions to begin this beneficial treatment. IV supplementation can help delay the aging process and lower the risk of certain medical conditions in healthy individuals. Athletes are a great example of those in peak physical condition but want to enhance their performance, endurance, and recovery time; NAD can benefit everyone. Contact us today to see for yourself!

How long does NAD stay in your system?

Before signing up for any IV therapy, it’s normal to be curious about how soon you’ll feel the effects and long you can expect to experience the results. Although each patient is different, typically, after your first NAD+ IV therapy, you will experience results that last from 4-to 14 days. The variation is dependent on your current condition and health goals. 

 Most patients report improved mental clarity following NAD+ infusions. As you continue treatments, the results of increasing your intracellular levels of NAD+ are a reversal of age-related cellular dysfunction. Most patients report favorable effects for 3-5 days. However, the biological influence of NAD supplementation continues beyond the first few days.
