NAD+ IV Therapy is an emerging vitamin therapy that is all-natural, holistic, and has shown outstanding results.
Even if needles make you queasy, this particular therapy is well worth the momentary needle stick. Why? Administering a high dose of NAD+ straight into your bloodstream, compared to other routes (i.e. oral) will give you a faster, more effective outcome. This high dose quickly optimizes your NAD+ levels, which revs up the engine in your cells (called the mitochondrion) translating into more energy for you.
The IV therapy can last from 3 to 15 days, depending on your condition and your goals. It’s important to work with a qualified doctor who is certified in providing NAD+ treatment because there are specific protocols.
Looking to increase your energy? Want to stop relying on caffeine to get you through the day?
NAD+ IV therapy can help. NAD and it’s twin form, NADH are primarily used in redox reactions to generate energy within your cells. Part of this process includes the breakdown of carbohydrates, or sugar. What happens when your body is flooded with sugar? On top of elevated blood sugar levels, your cells start to metabolism the simple carbohydrates leading to an overload of NADH. Excess NADH has been linked to several metabolic conditions.
Diabetes is one of those conditions. When your body doesn’t have enough NAD, or an overload of NADH, it won’t be able to activate the superhero enzymes sirtuins. Studies have shown that mice with elevated sirtuins were less likely to become diabetic, and were at a decreased risk of fatty liver disease. While IV NAD therapy won’t be able to lower your blood glucose levels, it does produce the same effect as calorie restriction.
In other words, NAD+ therapy might be able to reduce your waistline and lose weight.
As if the benefits from IV NAD therapy couldn’t get any better, did you know that it might help reduce your pain and also promote healing? A 2014 study published results of IV NAD therapy and neuropathic pain. They found that administering NAD intravenously helped reduce pain up to 2 days after the last injection. Even though this study was done on mice, it’s impressive nonetheless.
Boosting your NAD levels will allow your body to heal itself better from injury, especially when it comes to the regeneration of your blood vessels. Diabetic patients are at risk for developing blood vessel damage due to high blood glucose levels. This type of damage may lead to atherosclerosis, or the hardening of your arteries. Not only will NAD promote healing of your insides, but it may also reduce your risk of heart disease.
Get Your Anti-Aging On
Do you want to feel younger, have more energy, lengthen your lifespan? Dr. David Sinclair and his colleagues at Harvard discovered that NAD levels decline as we age and this also has an effect on other processes that rely on NAD. A class of enzymes known as sirtuins, plays a large role in how the body ages by regulating inflammation and DNA protection. Sirtuins depend on NAD to start and stop protective pathways that are linked to pathologies of age-related diseases. In other words, sirtuins are able to “turn on” and “turn off” certain genes like a light switch.
Why is reducing inflammation in the body important?
Inflammation causes damage to your DNA and other structures in your cells, which can lead to cell death. When we consume inflammatory foods, breathe in pollutants, or are exposed to other toxic chemicals, and bacteria our cells are at risk.
When the body has an autoimmune disease, the protective immune system can cause damage to its own tissues and cause such conditions of arthritis, fibromyalgia, and muscular pain. With bountiful amounts of IV NAD and oral supplements, your cells are able to activate enzymes to prevent and correct DNA damage. Superhero enzymes, such as sirtuins, allow your cells to live long and healthy lives, leading to a better quality of life for you.
Maximize Brain Power
This is a big one. As nootropics become more popular, many people are looking to enhance their cognitive performance with natural supplements. NAD IV therapy is arguably the best brain restoration therapy out there. It increases the function of your neurons, protects your cells from damage, toxicity and death, and promotes mitochondrial biogenesis. Overall, if your brain is healthy and functioning at optimal levels, you’ll make better decisions, be more productive, and achieve more.
Cognitive decline is a trademark symptom for aging. As we get older, our memory becomes fuzzy and we think a little slower. Neurodegeneration describes the loss of structure or function of the neurons. Research is emerging about the neuroprotective effects of sirtuins in the brain. Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) in the hippocampus has been linked with an increase in memory and learning in mice. Additionally, SIRT1 can protect against amyloid proteins associated with Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders. SIRT1 is dependent on NAD+ and acts to protect your brain and neurons.
Most people who experience NAD IV therapy express the following brain benefits:
Increased mental clarity
