Men’s Wellness: Supplementation, NAD+, Peptide Therapy, & More
Next Health Staff | | 0 comments
It is well-documented that the majority of men, for one reason or another, have internalized the notion that they do not need to address their health. In fact, 40% of men only go to the doctor if they believe they have a serious medical condition.
However, when you do not choose to make time for your health and wellness, you can be forced to make time for your illness. When health is not a priority, your quality of life can be compromised by premature aging, impaired athletic performance, low libido, poor cognitive function, poor sleep quality, and an overall decline.
This does not have to be your reality. Our bodies are incredibly capable of healing themselves and by supporting reparative processes in daily life, you can enhance your overall sense of wellness, reverse signs of aging, and even extend your lifespan.
Below are quick and effective tools you can incorporate into your routine to take your health to the next level:
Supplements For Men
In addition to a well-rounded diet of vitamin-packed fruits and vegetables, sources of protein, and healthy fats, supplementation is a great way to deliver your body the nutrients it needs. Supplementation takes just a few minutes out of your daily routine but can significantly impact how you feel and help you take on any challenge:
Sadly, prostate issues are a common occurrence with studies estimating that benign prostate disease is experienced by over 40% of American men by the age of 50 and over 70% by the age of 60.
DaVinci Labs’s Prostate Health is a top-tier dietary supplement designed to support your prostate health. Prostate dysfunction can lead to symptoms such as frequent urination, urinary urgency, and low or difficult flow.
This supplement is packed with potent ingredients such as EGCG, lycopene, saw palmetto, and resveratrol, all of which support healthy prostate function and enhance overall health.
Metabolic-Boosting Amino Acids
Metabolism is known to decline over time, making it harder to lose weight and gain muscle. Optimize your power and combat age-related decline with Metabolic Maintenance Amino Acid Base Powder. This blend is scientifically formulated with nine powerful amino acids and cofactors needed for optimal metabolic function. Benefits may include:
- Boosted energy levels
- Enhanced cognitive function
- Muscle-building support
- Improved detoxification
Many signs of aging are due to cell damage and oxidative stress, which can be caused by a variety of factors including poor diet, stress, a lack of exercise, environmental toxins, and more.
Antioxidants are known to combat oxidative stress (hence anti-oxidant). Glutathione is nicknamed the “Master Antioxidant” because it helps the body create other antioxidants that can further protect against oxidative stress.
In addition to preventing and reversing oxidative stress damage, the top-tier supplement, Liposomal Glutathione, can help improve insulin sensitivity, minimize symptoms of aging, enhance immune health, and more.
Give your brain the boost it needs for enhanced cognitive performance with CoQ10 (coenzyme Q10), the only fat-soluble antioxidant the body makes. This antioxidant is found in every cell in the body and is necessary for combating oxidative stress and cellular damage.
Additionally, CoQ10 is vital for the production of ATP, the body’s source of energy. Other benefits may include enhanced mental cognition, improved memory, and supported circulatory health.
NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and this coenzyme reacts with oxygen in every cell of the body, specifically in the mitochondria. NAD is involved in virtually every bodily function including energy production, breathing, pumping blood, and much more.
By improving your body’s supply of NAD+, you can enhance your mitochondrial health, which in turn promotes energy levels, repair processes, and overall wellness.
Benefits can include:
- Enhanced energy levels
- Improved mental cognition
- Elevated mood
- Reversed signs of aging
- Rejuvenated overall health
Boost your levels of NAD+ in order to enjoy an active lifestyle, replenish your energy levels, and support healthy cellular function with TRU NIAGEN PRO 500, a high-quality supplement packed with potent NAD+.
Dietary methods of boosting your NAD+ levels include fatty fish, mushrooms, green vegetables, and yeast.
Interested in taking your body’s supply of NAD+ to the next level? Next Health offers NAD+ IV Therapy. Nicknamed, “The Fountain of Youth” NAD+ IV Therapy has been shown to elevate physical and mental energy as well as enhance the potential benefits associated with supplementation. Next Health patients have even reported doing multiple workouts and improved productivity after their treatment.
NAD+ IV Therapy is considered more effective than supplementation because it allows for maximum bioavailability of this coenzyme. Although supplementation is beneficial, some nutrients are destroyed in the gut and are not transported to cells. NAD+ IV Therapy eliminates this problem by delivering NAD+ straight to your cells.
NAD+ IV Therapy works similar to IV drips and can take anywhere between 45 minutes and 2 hours because we modify the treatment to be paced to your liking.
Experience the mental and physical reboot you need with NAD+ IV Therapy.

What Are Peptides?
Peptides are chains of amino acids that act as precise messenger signals in the body that improve cellular function. As a result, they can help enhance various bodily responses such as boosting muscle, losing weight, improving growth hormone production, treating insomnia, and more.
There are over 7,000 known naturally occurring peptides that are produced in the human body that aid in cellular function, and they can now be produced at an advanced compounding pharmacy.
Next Health has researched and vetted the best manufacturers and offers comprehensive peptide treatment protocols. Consider these Next Health popular Next Health Peptides to empower your wellness journey:
Thymosin Alpha 1
Nicknamed “The Immunity Peptide” Thymosin Alpha 1 can address all your immune health concerns and more.
This is because Thymosin Alpha 1 is naturally made in the thymus, the center of immune system regulation. This peptide is a critical protein messenger that is involved in the proliferation of your T cells (which combat pathogens and viruses). In fact, this peptide is often prescribed to prevent viral, bacterial, and even fungal infections.
Because of its powerful effects on immune cell communication, Thymosin Alpha 1 has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-aging properties.
Thymosin Beta 4
Thymosin Beta 4 is a multifunctional peptide that is also made in the Thymus gland. Thymosin Beta 4 plays a critical role in the healing and tissue generation as it is responsible for attracting stem progenitor cells to areas of injuries, which form new blood vessels and trigger the growth of new tissue.
In addition to being effective in the healing of tissues, Thymosin Beta 4 has anti-inflammatory properties and can even induce hair growth.
This “Tissue-Healing Peptide” is great for anyone who is recovering from a tissue-related injury, surgery, or suffers from constant aches and pains from daily exercise.
As we age, it is difficult for men to build lean muscle due to a decline in hormone production. The peptide CJC-1295 Ipamorelin is designed to target the cells involved in muscle growth and athletic performance in order to help you build your optimized body.
CJC-1295 Ipamorelin naturally stimulates the release of growth hormone. Produced in the pituitary, Human growth hormone (HGH) is a naturally occurring hormone that is necessary for cellular regeneration and production. HGH helps maintain, build, and repair tissues in the brain, muscles, and other bodily systems.
This peptide can boost your overall strength, recovery, and performance, empowering you to feel optimized. CJC-1295 Ipamorelin has also been shown to improve sleep quality and aid in weight loss.
Next Health offers a variety of peptides, all of which are self-administered. The forefront of medicine is now customizable to your unique needs.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men
One of the most influential components of wellness for men is hormonal health.
Starting after the age of 30, men’s hormonal levels can start to decline. This leaves us with lower levels of energy, poor memory, decreased athletic performance, inability to build lean muscle, and other symptoms that are often attributed to age-related decline.
You can now feel better for longer with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Next Health’s Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy utilizes bio-identical hormones that are derived from yams and are “molecularly identical” to the body’s own hormones, so the body does not recognize them as foreign. This can naturally improve your body’s hormone levels, elevating your overall sense of wellness.
Patients have found that Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. The pellets are approximately the size of a tic-tac, and depending on your required dose, we will determine how many pellets need to be inserted. Implants are placed under the skin, with local anesthetic, and consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.
Once the pellets are inserted, hormones are released based on cardiac output, meaning your body controls how quickly the hormones are released to maintain optimal hormone levels.
Based on the majority of our male patients, they are pelleted once every 4-5 months.
Next Health also offers Bio-Identical Hormone Injections for those who are interested.
