What is NAD+?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It plays a crucial role in cellular metabolism by facilitating the transfer of electrons in oxidation-reduction reactions, which are integral to the process of generating energy within cells. There are two forms of NAD: NAD+ (the oxidized form) and NADH (the reduced form). The balance between these two forms is essential for various metabolic activities, including glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and the electron transport chain, which are pivotal in the conversion of food into energy. NAD+ is often highlighted for its potential therapeutic benefits.

What is NAD+ therapy?

NAD+ therapy involves the administration of NAD+ for the purpose of boosting the levels of this coenzyme in the body. The therapy is believed to counteract age-related declines in this coenzyme, potentially slowing aging and improving longevity. It’s also thought to enhance energy metabolism, leading to increased physical energy and reduced fatigue. In the realm of neurological health, boosting NAD+ levels may offer benefits for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s by supporting neuron function and survival. Furthermore, in addiction recovery, NAD+ has shown promise in reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings, highlighting its broad therapeutic potential.

Is NAD+ therapy safe?

NAD+ therapy, when administered under the guidance of trained professionals, is generally considered safe. The treatment involves delivering NAD+ directly into the bloodstream, usually via an intravenous (IV) drip. While many individuals undergo this therapy without any issues, some might experience mild side effects such as a warm sensation, slight nausea, or dizziness during the infusion. 

Potential benefits of NAD+ Therapy

Energize, Renew, Restore.

Cellular energy boost

NAD+ is a vital molecule that helps convert the food we eat into cellular energy, acting like a supportive sidekick, moving energy around during various chemical processes.

DNA repair

NAD+ aids in repairing damaged DNA. It helps maintain the integrity of our genetic information, safeguarding our cells from potential mutations.

Improves cognitive functions

As we age, our mental sharpness can diminish. Challenges like forgetfulness, mental haziness, and concentration lapses often arise from age-related cognitive decline. Low NAD+ levels can further intensify these problems. Our bodies depend on mitochondria and NAD+ to transform glucose into energy, fueling our brain cells. A deficiency in NAD+ means less glucose is converted to energy, leading to a shortage in the energy supply for our brain cells.

Rejuvenate skin

With age, the texture of our skin can become uneven due to factors like sun damage, dehydration, and reduced cell turnover. With optimal NAD+ levels, you might notice a reduction in fine lines, a more even skin tone, and a vibrant glow.

Supports healthy aging

NAD+ injections activate certain proteins called sirtuins that are associated with longevity and resistance to stress. Look and feel younger with a potential reduction in wrinkles and age-related discomforts.

Improves insulin sensitivity

When NAD+ levels are optimal, cells can respond more efficiently to insulin, thereby improving sensitivity. Improved insulin sensitivity means a more stable blood sugar level throughout the day.
