Why is NAD+ Therapy Important to Aging Gracefully?
As we age, our health becomes increasingly important to look after. The dietary habits, lifestyle activities and environmental exposures of a lifetime naturally cause wear and tear on our bodies. Every single cell in the human body copies itself many times through the decades, and that process becomes less efficient over time, causing our bodies to show signs of aging.
Since the 1900s however, the average life expectancy has dramatically increased. Life expectancy at birth now exceeds 83 years in Japan—the current leader—and is at least 81 years in several other countries1.
Good health is essential to aging gracefully. Over the course of our lives many of us spend thousands of dollars on health check-ups, aesthetic treatments and natural or synthetic products that can help us live longer and better, not to mention the fortunes spent on organic food, gym memberships, and exercise equipment or apparel.
Our body is a miracle factory that is capable of so much, including the abilities to grow, heal, think and respond dynamically. It thrives on balanced nutrition, frequent movement and healthy habits. Aging, however, affects all of at different rates regardless of how healthy one may have lived their life.
One of the culprits, no matter your genetics, is the decline in our NAD+ levels2, which affects all our important organs; heart, kidney, liver, lungs, spleen, skin, and our brain.
To live longer, healthier years, a consistent and minimum amount of NAD+ is required in your body.
What is NAD+?
NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme or helper molecule that is found in every cell in the body. It is essential to processing the following functions:
- Converting and transferring the energy from food to the rest of our body (part of our metabolism)
- Repairing cells throughout the body including vital organs and neurons in the brain
NAD+ already exists in our body—but as it declines with age, it requires maintenance through conversion from food consumed or directly into the bloodstream via intravenous (IV) infusion.
While we can increase NAD+ levels naturally, the latter fast tracks the absorption of NAD+ in our body and thus, works more efficiently to aid in the delay or reversal of aging—physically and mentally. We call this treatment “NAD Plus Therapy” or NAD IV Therapy.
What is NAD+ Therapy?
NAD+ Therapy is an intravenous vitamin treatment that supplies the body with a high dose of NAD+, takes about 1-3 hours to administer while the person receiving the therapy sits comfortably. It can be repeated on a number of days or at different frequencies, depending on the dosage and the recommendation of your specialist. Different doses are used for different conditions: brain stimulation, increasing metabolism, treating diabetes, muscle growth and general anti-aging.
During the treatment, you are essentially in waiting mode, and can relax, eat, watch movies, work on a laptop, chat on a call or even sleep.
While the treatment itself is generally safe and very low-risk, it is advisable to engage with a reputable medical provider as it involves needles which can cause infections if carelessly used. Always seek out certified medical practitioners who will administer the treatment responsibly, including transparency in where the ingredients of the fluid are sourced from.
What are the benefits of NAD+ Therapy?
When our body receives a boost of NAD+, a number of positive things happen:
- Boost in metabolism and aids weight loss
- Increase in brain power and mental clarity, decreases stress level
- Increase in energy and mood, decreases fatigue
- Increase in muscle and tissue development
- Regenerates and protects cells, prevent cancer
- Reduces inflammation in the body
- Boost in sex drive commonly reported by men
The anti-aging properties of NAD+ helps to ensure that getting older does not mean our best days are behind us.
As an alternative solution to unhealthy addictions, NAD+ therapy is also found useful to decrease withdrawal symptoms3—in cases of people trying to quit or reduce drug, alcohol or nicotine addiction.
