NAD and NAD+
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme present in almost all cells of the body. Essential in metabolic function, slowing the aging process, promoting athletic function, boosting brain repair and function, NAD+ is also considered the diamond standard in functional addiction medicine for alcohol and substance withdrawal symptoms.
Administering a high dose of NAD+ straight into the bloodstream, compared to other routes (i.e. oral) will provide a faster, more effective outcome and quickly optimizes the body’s NAD+ levels.
Although we naturally produce NAD+ it, like most things, it reduces with age. This “miracle” molecule is mostly regarded for its effect on aging and is considered the closest we’ve gotten to a “fountain of youth”. Intravenous use of NAD+ activates enzymes in the bloodstream called “sirtuins” which promote the “good” aspects of your genes which facilitates staying healthier longer and reducing the side effects of aging.
