Understanding NAD+ and the Benefits of NAD+ Therapy
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, more commonly referred to as NAD+, is found in every cell in the body and is essential to life. As a coenzyme to Vitamin B3, NAD+ participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule. It helps transfer the energy we get from food to the rest of our body and is a cornerstone to maintaining healthy internal organs and neurological systems.
When a high dose of NAD+ is delivered directly into the bloodstream by way of intravenous (IV) infusion, it helps bypass the digestive system for efficient absorption. The NAD+ can help repair cells throughout the body including neurons in the brain. The NAD+ Therapy allows your cells to produce more energy and may optimize many cellular functions throughout the body.
Since NAD+ is such a powerful molecule in the body, high-dose IV therapy can be helpful for many different physical and mental conditions. Patients who have participated in NAD+ Therapy reported increased energy, mental clarity, focus and concentration, improved mood, memory, eyesight, and hearing as well as decreased pain and withdrawal symptoms.
NAD+ Therapy Aids in Anti-Aging
As we age, our cells become less and less efficient due to the lack of NAD+. Research has shown that NAD+ has a unique ability to protect tissues, induce DNA repair, and help increase lifespan. As such, several universities have been investigating these properties and beginning discussions about using NAD+ Therapy as a potential treatment for age-related degenerative diseases.
While there is no confirmation that NAD+ Therapy can reverse aging, there is reason to think that increased NAD+ can at least help slow the aging process.
Aging and its effects, which can be considered as a disease among other diseases that appear over time, may be slowed by adding NAD+ Therapy to one’s routine.
Although some questions remain, recent studies into NAD+ Therapy show low toxicity and high effectiveness on the way towards a longer, better life.
NAD+ Therapy and Exercise
A group of Australian exercise scientists conducted a study to observe the effects of taking an antioxidant supplement before exercising. Among other findings, their research revealed that increased NAD+ levels improved exercise performance and endurance.
The participants in the study above took an oral supplement that stimulated NAD+ so it is likely that a direct IV infusion of NAD+ may be even more effective at improving athletic performance. NAD+ Therapy can help trained and untrained athletes meet their exercise goals.
NAD+ Therapy to Fight Addiction
Some people have used NAD+ Therapy as an option for detox by taking advantage of its cellular repair functions. NAD+ has shown to reduce cravings associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal. It is regarded as a more natural solution to prescription drugs and very safe to use.
When NAD is used as a detoxifier, nutrients bath the brain in a pool of natural and highly therapeutic coenzymes. The substance flushes out stored drugs from the body and its organs, and helps replenish balance in the brain. Potential results can be mental clarity, increased focus and concentration, more energy and an overall better mood.
