NAD+ IV Therapy
NAD+ IV Therapy
Micronutrient deficiencies are expected to affect around two billion individuals throughout the
world 1 .While iron, vitamin A, folate, zinc, and iodine deficiencies are the most common, there are
other nutrients that play just as important roles in the human body. Vitamin B3, also known as
Niacin, is one particular important vitamin that is known to help keep the body and might even assist
in reducing the risk of conditions like diabetes and heart disease. The vitamin works on a cellular
level in the body and affects all organs, including the brain.
This vitamin consists of two different chemicals, including Nicotinamide and Nicotinic Acid. As the
body breaks these chemicals down, the production of NAD, as well as NADP, occurs. These chemicals
have a number of important roles to play in the body 2 .
NAD+ is an invention that was developed that provides the patient with the NAD chemical that is
naturally produced in their bodies. With higher levels of the chemical introduced directly into the
bloodstream of the patient, various benefits, including anti-aging effects, may be experienced.
The Use Of NAD+ Through Intravenous Administration
NAD+ is also known as Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide and is a type of coenzyme that is
naturally already found within the human body. Scientists have started to produce the chemical
synthetically and can introduce it to a patient's body through IV administration. This helps to
increase the availability of the coenzyme within the body and can assist in a number of issues.
NAD+ has been proven to assist in the promotion of cellular regeneration. The coenzyme also has a
role to play in cellular energy conversion. Furthermore, many studies have already been conducted
on the compound and found it to be highly effective in producing a neuroprotective effect,
especially in patients who are developing neurodegenerative disorders. One study 3 also found that
enhancing the bioavailability of NAD+ can help to slow down the development of several brain-
related diseases that are associated with age.
Treatment with NAD+ through IV administration has also been found to assist in repairing damage in
the body on a DNA level. Furthermore, the use of this coenzyme may also have anti-aging benefits in
store for the patient, as it has been found that the chemical may help to activate certain enzymes in
the body that have been associated with a slower rate of aging.
NAD+, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, has been shown to have a number of positive effects
in the body. Through introducing the chemical to the patient via IV therapy, bioavailability can be
greatly enhanced, leading to anti-aging effects, a protective effect on the patient’s brain cells, and
possibly inducing an anti-inflammatory effect throughout the patient’s body.
