NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is a coenzyme found in all living cells and has even been called an anti-aging molecule because of the many important roles it plays in promoting health and prolonging the lifespan.
This powerful molecule has a lot of potential for new therapeutic opportunities. Studies have shown that it can help battle many effects of aging and chronic conditions on the human body and brain.
How NAD+ Infusion Therapy Boosts Your Energy Levels and Metabolism
Whether you’re fighting chronic fatigue due to illness or just feeling the effects of getting older, NAD+ can make you feel more energetic and put a spring back in your step again. A coenzyme infusion administered intravenously helps provide energy to your body’s cells on a molecular level.
Besides improving your overall energy, NAD+ also contributes to a healthy metabolism. A smoothly-functioning metabolism is an important part of dealing with weight management and blood sugar issues.
Other Physical Benefits of NAD IV Infusions
Since it is one of your body’s natural coenzymes that promotes cell regeneration, supplementing NAD+ levels through an IV drip can reduce inflammation and help your body recover faster from an injury. The coenzyme also assists in the activation of poly ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPS) to repair damaged DNA inside your body.
Who Is a Good Candidate for NAD+ IV Therapy?
Anyone who suffers from reduced energy levels feels sluggish and fatigued, or feels like their mind is continuously foggy can be a great candidate for this type of IV treatment. Replenishing your body’s NAD+ levels can drastically reduce these types of feelings and provide additional benefits.
People who are struggling with the side effects of aging or who suffer from certain age-related illnesses or chronic conditions are also excellent candidates, however, these infusions can also be beneficial for healthy individuals.
For example, it’s often recommended for athletes who want to enhance their performance and endurance and speed up their recovery times after intense exercise or an injury.
NAD IV therapy bags consist of a mixture of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) and saline. Therapy bags may contain either 250mg or 500mg of NAD depending on which condition or issue you are treating.
250 mg – recommended starting dose. This dose is administered over 1-2 hours. Clients may feel heaviness in their chest and numbness in their extremities. These feelings are normal and go away directly after the infusion is complete. Your nurse will adjust the speed of the infusion for optimal comfort.
500 mg – recommended dosing for experienced clients with NAD+. This dose is not appropriate for anyone that has anxiety or is uneasy with infusions. This dose is administered over 2-4 hours. Clients may feel heaviness in their chest and numbness in their extremities. These feelings are normal and go away directly after the infusion is complete. Your nurse will adjust the speed of the infusion for optimal comfort.
