Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide
Rolls off the tongue, right? Also known as NAD+, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is kind of a big deal. Without NAD+, our cells wouldn’t be able to survive, let alone thrive and carry out their many functions that make you, you. NAD+ is essential for maintaining our body’s DNA integrity, ensuring our cells are functioning properly, protecting our bodies from aging, and combating disease and inflammation.
What exactly does NAD+ do?
Think of it as a shuttle bus. It picks up electrons and transfers them where they are most needed in your body. Once electrons are transferred, this activates chemical reactions that keep your cells happy and your body functioning optimally.
Why do I need an IV of NAD+?
As we age, our stores of NAD+ are depleted, unfortunately. If you’re feeling negative effects of aging, this is likely part of the problem. Also, damage to our DNA and various metabolic disorders have shown to contribute to the depletion of NAD+. This loss of NAD+ can lead to a slow metabolism, heart function decline, and cognitive impairment, just to name a few. Research has shown that it protects our cells from stress, maintains mitochondrial function (the powerhouse of every cell in your body), promotes healthy brain function, and reduces inflammation.
You can start working on increasing your stores of NAD+ by making a few lifestyle changes. If you are not already, exercising is a great way to boost NAD+ levels. Using a sauna and making dietary changes are also important factors in NAD+ production. Last but certainly not least, IV nutrient therapy is a quick and effective way to boost NAD+ levels and get you on the track to feeling like your best self again!
