8 Benefits of NAD IV Therapy

This innovative therapy may be simple in its administration, but it provides numerous complex benefits on a cellular level. NAD IV therapy works by delivering the oxidized form of a coenzyme called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) directly into the bloodstream. NAD+ is used by the body to carry out a wide range of functions, and delivering it through an IV allows more of the coenzyme to be absorbed by the body. NAD IV therapy circumvents the digestive system ensuring the NAD+ coenzyme doesn’t get broken down before it reaches the cells that need it most. 

Benefits of NAD IV Therapy

Because the NAD+ coenzyme is used in a myriad of processes within the body, there are many benefits associated with NAD IV therapy. 

NAD IV therapy has been found to:

Aid in Addiction Recovery

Addiction is a complex psychological disorder that affects the way messages are conveyed to and from the brain. The recovery or cessation process can be a difficult one. 40 to 60% of people struggling with addiction relapse, according to the US National Institute on Drug Abuse. 

NAD IV therapy is not a cure for addiction. However, it is a powerful tool that can aid in the recovery process by reducing withdrawal symptoms. By making the withdrawal period more tolerable, this therapy helps patients transition into sobriety. NAD IV therapy is a natural alternative to medications that often pose a greater risk of side effects, and it works well in conjunction with counselling or psychotherapy. NAD IV therapy has been used to help patients detoxify from alcohol, opioid, chemical, and prescription drug dependencies.

Reduce Pain

Sirtuins are a family of protein molecules that have been found to play a crucial role in the body’s inflammatory response and antioxidant expression. Basically, certain sirtuins can reduce inflammation, which in turn, alleviates pain. Sirtuins require the NAD+ coenzyme to function properly, so NAD IV therapy fuels this pain reduction process.

Improve Cognitive Function

In addition to their impact on inflammation and pain, sirtuins can improve cells’ resistance to stress and can slow the process of cognitive decline. NAD IV therapy provides sirtuins with the NAD+ coenzyme they require to:

  • Improve mental clarity
  • Boost memory
  • Improve mood
  • Facilitate brain regeneration
  • Improve concentration
  • Increase one’s ability to focus
  • Boost neurological function
  • Reduce symptoms of depression

Boost Energy

Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is commonly referred to as “molecular currency” because it is essentially the source of energy for our cells. ATP is the fuel that supports many processes within the body, including cellular respiration, replication of DNA, and muscle contractions. NAD IV therapy aids the production of ATP within the body, which in turn boosts energy levels and reduces feelings of tiredness or exhaustion. NAD IV therapy is often prescribed to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It can also help people recover from jetlag.

Improve Athletic Performance

Athletes and anyone looking to improve their physical performance will benefit from NAD IV therapy’s ability to boost energy and cognitive function, as mentioned above. After all, having more energy and being able to think clearly is sure to improve reaction times and overall performance during training and competitions. In addition, the NAD+ coenzyme plays a vital role in muscle development. NAD IV therapy helps maintain muscle health by supplying your body with ample fuel to not only fire muscles during a workout but repair them afterwards, so you can build stronger muscles and increase muscle mass. 

Help with Weight Management

The NAD+ coenzyme plays a vital role in the human body’s metabolic process. When NAD IV therapy is used in conjunction with a proper diet and regular exercise, it can help patients maintain a healthy weight. This can be particularly useful as patients age and metabolism naturally begins to slow down.

Reverse Signs of Aging

We discussed how sirtuins could affect cognitive function, inflammation, and pain management, as well as how these deacetylases are dependent upon NAD+. One sirtuin, in particular, known as Sir2p, also plays a role in the ageing process and the overall health span of the body. NAD IV therapy impacts the effectiveness of Sir2p, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and reverse certain symptoms of ageing.

Delay or Prevent the Onset of Certain Diseases

While research is still ongoing and more studies are needed to fully understand the impact of the NAD+ coenzyme on various conditions, scientists have found a connection between this vital enzyme and several cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Lowered levels of NAD+ have been linked to diabetes and fatty liver disease, among other conditions.
