NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a cofactor and not a medication that can be very beneficial to overall wellness. NAD+ is a coenzyme of Vitamin B3 (Niacin) and naturally produced in the body. However, with age, NAD+ levels decline. There is significant literature on NAD+ studies. These studies look at the benefit of NAD+ and the science behind it as well. NAD+ IV treatments can also assist with addiction recovery (alcohol, opioids, nicotine), improve depression, improve brain health in neurological function, improve mental clarity, improve brain regeneration, boost energy levels, reduce overall fatigue and restore muscle function and athletic performance. It has been shown by working at the DNA level on the telomere, to slow the aging process, and can also reverse aging. NAD+ can restore the appearance of skin and reduce wrinkles.
Because levels of NAD+ that recurs naturally declines with age, NAD+ IV treatments supplements this gradual decline and delivers a powerful coenzyme directly into the bloodstream making it available to cells for immediate use. NAD+ treatments last from 4-14 days depending on the individual. One of NAD+’s most significant role within the body is in oxidative-reduction (Redox) reactions. These reactions are part of the metabolic system and converts food into energy the body needs to function properly. Other important role of NAD+ is to regulate circadian and metabolic rhythm. This coenzyme maintains DNA integrity and health and also functions as a quality control mechanisms for new protein. Scientific studies have shown that NAD+ can help with arthritis and autoimmune disorders. The European Medical Journal (September 4, 2018) showed that the role of NAD+ had an expanded role beyond its coenzyme capability linking cellular metabolism to inflammation signaling and immune response.
