What is NAD+ IV Drip & How Can It Help You?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a co-enzyme that is responsible for repairing, restructuring and remolding every cell in the body. As an essential coenzyme, NAD regulates mitochondrial function and cellular energy metabolism to reduce the symptoms of chronic illness, reduce cravings, repair damaged DNA, enhance your mood, boost performance and productivity and reverse the effects of aging.

These enzymes need to constantly be replenished, especially in people with drug and alcohol dependence. This is because addictions cause the brain to undergo a process called neuroadaptation, which means that it has to restructure itself on a cellular level and leads to a decrease in essential neurotransmitters. NAD+ IV therapy helps replenish target brain restoration by replenishing depleted enzymes to reduce the symptoms of addiction and help you feel your absolute best.

According to Doctor Richard Mestayer, who is one of the pioneers of NAD+ IV therapy, NAD is almost as necessary as oxygen when it comes to making your cells work properly. This is because it’s found in the mitochondria of every cell in the body and it has several essential functions, especially longevity and immunity. It’s also involved in a number of redox reactions that help reduce oxidative stress to put you at a decreased risk of chronic illness. In general, it helps make inflammation go away, and this is an integral part of the recovery process for many addicts.

But you don’t have to be recovering from an addiction to reap the benefits of NAD. Your NAD levels naturally decrease with age, which enhances the degenerative aging process. This can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, reduced mental clarity and chronic fatigue. Plus it increases your risk of serious chronic illnesses. NAD helps enable our bodies to retain energy from the food we eat and transport them to cells, especially the ones in the brains, to help keep you sharp throughout the aging process. Additionally, NAD has been shown to turn off genes that cause you to age faster. Your NAD levels can naturally begin to decline with a poor diet, the use of drugs or alcohol, constant exposure to stress, and lack of physical exercise, among other factors.

Health benefits of NAD+ IV therapy include the following:

  • Protection against DNA damage
  • Repairing DNA damage
  • Restoring cellular metabolism (ATP) to help you feel more energized
  • Combating fatigue and improving athletic performance
  • Boosting the immune system by improving cell signaling
  • Reversing the effects of aging for a younger, healthier looking appearance
  • Stimulation of the neurotransmitters dopamine, noradrenaline and serotonin to help improve brain function and mood
  • Helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol

How Does NAD+ IV Therapy Work?

During NAD+ IV therapy treatment, you can expect to receive one IV infusion per day. Your individualized treatment plan will be formulated after meeting with our naturopathic physician, Doctor Benchouk. At the start of each treatment, you will be injected with an IV, and the NAD mixture will slowly be administered. Some research claims that you can start to feel the effects of withdrawal and other symptoms reside within minutes of being on the IV. Patients can relax while the IV is administered. You may start feeling better by the end of your first treatment, with mental clarity and improved energy levels. Most patients will need to complete the recommended number of treatments before they see maximum results. We encourage you to meet with us to determine whether or not NAD+ IV therapy is right for you.

How Do NAD+ Deficiencies Occur?

There are two primary reasons why NAD+ deficiencies occur. Unfortunately, all of them are common among people who live in the Westernized world. The first is chronic stress, which occurs when the body is exposed to excessive levels of inflammation and oxidative stress. This happens when there is an imbalance in the number of free radicals that the body is exposed to and the amount of antioxidants it has to protect it. Free radicals are unstable molecules that bind to healthy cells to steal an electron from them to become stable again. Antioxidants disarm free radicals by donating an electron to them so that they can no longer cause harm. Under constant levels of inflammation and chronic stress, your NAD+ levels are depleted quickly.

The second reason why your NAD+ levels might become depleted is due to poor lifestyle choices that lead to inflammation. For example, the modern day diet is high in sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed junk and low in nutrients that the body needs to produce NAD, such as vitamin B3 and tryptophan. Because of this, the body doesn’t have what it needs to replenish its declining levels continuously. Furthermore, these foods provoke inflammation, which creates an environment in the body that makes it harder for you to produce NAD+. The overuse of drugs and alcohol also leads to reduced levels. Studies show that NAD IV therapy can be used to help patients overcome opiate, stimulant, alcohol, and tranquilizer addictions by reducing withdrawal symptoms and associated cravings. It also helps you learn to feel good without drugs or eating a poor diet so that you can make the changes you need to stay healthy for life.

NAD+ & Healing Addiction

NAD IV therapy is an innovated and effective holistic treatment for addiction therapy and other health issues. Specifically, NAD IV therapy encourages the healing of the mind, body, and spirit to help you fully recover from alcohol and drug dependence by targeting brain restoration and replenished drained enzymes. But you don’t have to be a recovering addict to benefit from NAD therapy. NAD is needed to help you live a longer, healthier life.

Although the treatment has not been used in the United States for very long, research shows that it has been around since 1961 when it was first used in South Africa. According to some reports, NAD+ IV therapy can reduce drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms by up to 80 percent.
