Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD, is a coenzyme that your body naturally produces for a number of essential biological processes. It can repair your DNA, promote healthy cell growth, and boost your overall well being. But as you age, your body produces less NAD+, and this reflects in the way you start to show signs of physical and mental aging.
NAD IV Therapy can boost the amount of NAD in your body, giving it the boost it needs to enhance many essential functions.
NAD IV Therapy is a fast, convenient, and efficient way of increasing the essential enzyme in your bloodstream. Diet and lifestyle changes can improve your NAD+ production naturally, but for those who want a head start to treat their body’s NAD+ deficiency on top of these changes, NAD IV is the effective solution.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide comes in two forms: an inactive NADH and an active NAD+ that plays a role in many of your biological processes. These include:
Your body naturally produces NAD+. But as you age, the amount it can regularly produce gradually decreases. This can result in a number of effects such as signs of aging, mental fog, and an overall decrease in energy and changes in your body’s chemistry. Lifestyle changes and dietary practices can increase the amount of NAD+ you produce, but this can take time and provide minimal changes.
By getting NAD IV therapy, you’re getting the boost your body needs by introducing more NAD+ to distribute for different essential functions. Every biological process that requires NAD+ gets enough to perform its best, which can provide several benefits, including an overall improvement of your health and well-being.
Like many other IV therapy treatments, NAD IV is not FDA-approved. However, the FDA has acknowledged the benefits of NAD therapy for treating conditions like drug dependence, withdrawal symptoms, and chronic fatigue. The FDA also considers NAD infusion therapy a safe procedure when a patient receives a dose of less than two grams per day.
When you receive NAD IV Therapy from Revitalize You, you can rest assured that you’re in safe and professional care.
NAD IV therapy can be applied to a number of uses. NAD+ is present in all living organisms and is necessary for essential biological functions, so you can get numerous benefits from your infusion treatments. Some of the most common benefits our patients get from our NAD IV therapy include the following:
Various signs of aging are inevitable: your skin cells take longer to be replaced with newer cells, and your body’s systems start to degrade in performance. This is the result of lower NAD+ production in your body. NAD+ contains sirtuins, which regulate DNA damage response function and also play a role in your body’s aging process.
NAD IV therapy can affect the effectiveness of a sirtuin known as Sir2p. Aside from assisting in the overall health of your body, Sir2p can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, one of the most prominent signs of aging. It can also reverse certain symptoms of aging and give your body more energy to perform at its best.
NAD+ plays a role in activating antioxidants and reducing inflammation, which can trigger chronic pain due to certain medical conditions. Your body’s inflammatory response can be triggered during stressful situations, which can result in chronic pain and discomfort.
NAD IV therapy can add NAD+ to help activate antioxidants and provide natural anti-inflammation effects. It can also increase serotonin levels, which can act as a mood stabilizer to help with mental conditions like anxiety and depression.
Lower levels of NAD+ have been linked to diabetes, fatty liver disease, degenerative brain disease (such as Alzheimer’s disease), fibromyalgia, and other chronic conditions. These are some of the conditions triggered by degenerative cell production as your body ages.
NAD IV therapy can increase your NAD+ levels to prevent or delay the onset of chronic conditions like these. This is not a cure for existing conditions, but it can help patients minimize the symptoms these conditions can have on their lifestyle.
When you develop a dependence or addiction to alcohol or certain drugs, it can change the way your brain functions. Your brain thinks that these substances are necessary for your body, which is why trying to cut off your addiction can result in cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This is why overcoming substance addictions by going cold turkey can result in high relapse rates.
Getting NAD IV therapy while in recovery can assist in making the process easier. NAD+ can accelerate your brain’s healing, which can help you overcome cravings and withdrawal symptoms that make recovery difficult. It’s not a cure for addiction, but it is a natural alternative to other medications used during recovery.
People prone to brain fog can experience difficulty focusing and thinking clear thoughts. Brain fog can make it difficult to focus on specific tasks at work or in school. This can be a sign of cognitive decline caused by stress and natural cell aging.
NAD IV therapy can provide your brain with the NAD+ it needs to function at its best. When injected into your body, the infusion saturates your brain cells with NAD+ and other nutrients to help your brain function normally. Patients who take NAD IV therapy for cognitive health report improved focus, enhanced memory, and an overall improved mood.
NAD+ assists in producing energy by producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during metabolism. ATP is an essential molecule responsible for cellular respiration, storing and transferring energy, DNA replication, and muscle movement. Reduced amounts of NAD+ can result in less ATP, which can result in fatigue (which can develop into chronic fatigue syndrome) and constantly feeling tired and sluggish.
By providing your body with a NAD+ boost through IV therapy, you’re helping ATP production. This fuels your body’s cells with the energy it needs to perform its best in various systems. This can also help you overcome constant feelings of tiredness, exhaustion, and, when traveling, jetlag.
NAD+ plays a role in metabolism, which is your body’s ability to change stored fat cells into energy for your whole body to function normally. People with a high metabolism can burn more calories even when at rest, which is why they can burn fat more easily compared to those with slower metabolic rates. Metabolism rates can vary between people, though it tends to slow down as you age.
NAD IV therapy, combined with a proper diet and an active lifestyle, can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. It can give your body the metabolism boost it needs to burn more calories and receive more energy for an active lifestyle.
NAD IV therapy is a fairly straightforward process. After an initial consultation to determine if NAD IV therapy is the right procedure for what you want to treat, one of our medical professionals will administer the IV drip. One infusion can take around 90 minutes, but during that time, you’re free to do things like read a book or watch a movie while you wait.
Depending on the condition you want to treat, combining NAD IV therapy with other therapies and cosmetic treatments may be possible. To learn more, schedule a consultation with our doctor so that we can recommend a treatment plan that best suits your needs.
NAD IV therapy is best combined with other long-term practices that can naturally promote NAD+ production in your body. Lifestyle practices such as regular exercise, minimized sun exposure, and dietary changes can help your body produce higher levels of NAD+ to maintain the benefits of your IV therapy.
NAD is a naturally occurring coenzyme in your body, so the side effects are very minimal and the risk of adverse effects is very low.
Similar to other injections, you can experience common side effects such as minimal pain and discomfort, swelling, tenderness, and flu-like symptoms around the injection site. This is your body’s inflammation at work as a delayed response to the needle penetrating your skin. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen or paracetamol to minimize the discomfort, though these side effects should subside in a matter of days.
You may also experience side effects like bleeding and bruising on the injection site. This is a side effect common in all intravenous injections. It can take up to two weeks for the bruising to fully clear out. You can use home remedies like ice packs to speed up the healing process. Avoid alcoholic drinks and blood-thinning medication, as these can promote bruising and slow down the healing process.
NAD IV Therapy provides your body with the coenzymes it needs to function at its best. One session can do wonders for your cell growth, cognitive function, weight management, chronic conditions, and more. By combining this extensive treatment with a healthy diet and lifestyle, you can help your body rebuild itself into a better version that can help you live your best life.
Our patients experience improved mental clarity and enhanced physical sensations after one infusion. For most patients, the NAD IV Therapy boost’s benefits on their bodies are noticeable almost immediately. But for those taking NAD IV treatment for chronic conditions and anti-aging, it can take several treatments before you see visible results. Schedule a consultation with our doctor so you can discuss what you want to gain from your treatment and how long you can expect to see life-changing results.
