As we age, our bodies naturally decline in synthesizing NAD, which is crucial to essential biological processes. NAD+ is a coenzyme present in almost all cells in your body, which focuses on regulating health, neuro-protection, DNA repair and anti-aging.
Discovered in 1906, NAD, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a prized molecule because of its ability to bind to other enzymes to help cause reactions on a molecular level. While NAD+ is vital to its role in biological functions, it naturally decreases in production as we age. NAD+ is the gateway to building and maintaining healthy internal organs, a healthy neurological system, increased energy levels and anti-aging.
NAD+ is one of the most important tools you can give your cells, and ultimately yourself. Stronger cells equals a stronger you! There are many benefits to receiving NAD+ through IV Therapy, and here are some we want to share with you:
It boosts your metabolism.
When NAD+ enters the system, part of it works on breaking down carbohydrates, or sugar. When you do not have enough NAD+ in your system, or have too much NADH in your system, your body cannot activate the superhero enzymes sirtuins. This makes it difficult to balance your cells, which then leads to weight gain and aging. So what happens when your body is flooded with sugar? Without NAD+ in your system, you have higher blood sugar levels, an overload on NADH and issues with metabolic conditions. In other words, NAD+ may make it able for you to lose weight and reduce your waistline, while reducing the risk of diabetes and obesity.
It helps reduce pain.
A study done on mice in 2014 helped scientists understand the results of NAD+ on therapy and neuropathic pain. They found that administering NAD+ through an IV helped reduce pain, even days after the clients last injection. Although done on mice, the study is quite impressive when correlating the results to human response concerning pain management. By doing NAD+, you will help your body to heal quicker and more efficiently after injury, especially when it comes to the regeneration of your blood vessels.
It helps the brain.
No matter how effective any other IVs may be, NAD+ is arguably the best brain restoration therapy available on the market. It increases the function of your neurons, protects your cells from irreversible damage, toxicity and death, and promotes mitochondrial function. Cognitive decline is a trademark for aging – as we get older, our memory becomes fuzzy and we think a little slower. With the extra boost in energy, brain health and pain management, you will find it easier to make better decisions, be more productive and achieve more goals.
It helps the skin.
Ever heard of free radicals and/or oxidative stress? Free radicals are unstable molecules in the skin, which damages healthy cells. NAD+ greatly improves the quality of the skin due to the fact that it is a coenzyme which bonds to the unbalanced cells and helps the skin bounce back. NAD+ also greatly improves acne, fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea and other inflammatory skin conditions.
What is the IV Therapy process like for NAD+? Here at ThrIVe Drip Spa, one of our highly trained nurses, overseen by our Medical Director, will first check your BUN and Creatinine levels, which are done via blood work. Your own doctor can do this or you are welcome to have your blood drawn at the Spa. After approval, the treatment protocol for NAD+ is 250mg over 2+ hours, or 500mg over 4+ hours, with four sessions within a week. With each NAD+ bag there will an included Myers bag to help flush toxins, boost energy and reach desired effects.
