NAD+ is short for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. It’s a critical coenzyme found in every cell in your body that’s involved in hundreds of metabolic processes like cellular energy and mitochondrial health.
NAD+ is in the cells of humans and other mammals, yeast and bacteria, even plants. We produce NAD+ naturally in our body, but this declines with age. Reduced NAD+ appears to play a crucial role in the development of metabolic dysfunction and age-related diseases.
Research shows that NAD+:
Plays important roles in energy conversion, DNA repair, immune defense, and sleep cycles.
Activates sirtuins and other enzymes in DNA repair and inflammatory responses.
Controls the production of the protein PGC-1 alpha which protects neurons and other cells in the central nervous system from oxidative stress.
Helps protect blood vessels against age-related hardening, can increase metabolism, muscle strength and endurance.
Anecdotally, our staff has found it has been helpful for brain fog, mood, sleep cycles, cellular repair and overall well being. Delivered to you as an IV you will be absorbing actual NAD+ and not precursors to NAD+ as are found in supplements. Please note that NAD+ IVs will take longer than the usual vitamin IV. Allow yourself 90-120 minutes or more, to complete an IV per 250mg of dosage.
