Next Health Staff | | 0 comments
If you are interested in IV therapy, you might have also heard about NAD+ additions. If you don’t know what that stands for or even what that is, no worries! As one of the best NAD+ therapy providers in the world, we can explain what NAD+ is, how it might help, and where to get therapy today!
There are many benefits to NAD+ as well that we are going to cover, so be sure to read this before you go in for your IV therapy treatment. You may want to consider adding a boost of NAD+ to one of our other IV therapies for double the benefits.
Let’s get started!
What is NAD+ Therapy?
NAD+ therapy involves adding a dose of NAD into your bloodstream. This is done intravenously so that it can avoid your digestive system and be absorbed into your body much faster.
At Next|Health we offer this in a shot form and a dedicated drip IV therapy form. Both provide benefits, but the NAD+ IV shot version can be added to any of our drip IV treatments, so you can benefit from two types of therapy at once.
Many people utilize NAD+ therapy to potentially benefit from multiple health boosts. Since NAD+ is such a versatile and vital coenzyme, there’s almost no limit to what it can accomplish for your body.
But let’s break down exactly what NAD+ is so you know if it’s good for your needs.
What is NAD+?
NAD, also called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is found inside every cell in your body and has many, many different functions. As we age, the mitochondria in our cells start to decay and have trouble functioning as well as they did before.
Mitochondria are responsible for producing energy in all of the cells that make up your body, so it’s easy to imagine how malfunctioning mitochondria can affect your energy levels. But NAD therapy research has shown that these IV treatments may be able to partially reverse the effects of mitochondrial decay and even some of the effects of aging.
When getting an IV treatment at one of our locations, think about if you would like a dose of NAD added into whatever drip you’ve already signed up for. It is very beneficial to your cells and your body’s health overall since you are getting vitamins and nutrients on top of the NAD treatment.
Now let’s get into the many benefits of NAD+ therapy.
What Are the Benefits of NAD+?
Think about how much energy kids have. They bounce out of bed right away and spend the entire day on the go. That’s because their mitochondria work at their fullest potential and don’t have to worry about any cellular decay. As we get older, our cells naturally decay to some extent in our mitochondria have to work harder to produce enough energy for daily activity.
Many people believe that they will never feel that way again. However, NAD+ therapy may be able to help you start getting that energy back.
Mitochondria are responsible for generating about 90% of your energy. When they are lacking, you will start to feel it right away. This is where NAD+ therapy comes in.
IV therapy is designed to help you feel younger and have more energy. NAD+ can help revitalize your cells’ mitochondria, which may result in many positive changes throughout your body.
Let’s break down some of the benefits you might experience as a result of this therapy.
Improving Brain Function
NAD keeps your brain functioning in its best condition. It may also boost your memory and help with mental clarity. This is because your cells can function better when they have working mitochondria, and this even extends to your brain.
Lower levels of NAD might be negatively affecting your brain. Without it, you may often experience brain fog, headaches, and have trouble with your memory.
NAD infusions might also be able to reserve some of the effects of aging. This is because it helps to repair failing cells, which can cause chronic fatigue and other age-related issues. If you are feeling especially sluggish lately, then a dose may be able to help you.
There is no way to completely avoid aging, but we may be able to slow down the speed at which we age. Many of our regular customers choose this therapy to make aging easier on their bodies.
This treatment will also provide your cells with the nutrients they need to keep your energy levels up. This can boost your mood, brain function, and help you feel more alert during your day to day life.
Everyone experiences fatigue, like when you stay up too late or get a great workout in at the gym. However, there are cases where fatigue persists, no matter how much sleep you got the night before. That is when you know your NAD levels are lowering.
This might also manifest itself as a feeling of lethargy or a lack of motivation, even to do the things that you enjoy. When you feel like you are no longer operating at the energy level you used to, NAD levels might be the issue.
All this just means that your body might need help in generating energy. In those cases, NAD+ treatments can be extremely beneficial in getting you to feel like yourself again.
You may also experience a metabolism boost from the treatment. This is because NAD supports the cells that help you with digestion and muscle building. The NAD+ IV treatment also includes additional nutrients that can aid in digestion and making energy, which improves your metabolism.
Why is NAD+ IV Therapy Effective?
NAD+ IV therapy allows you to get the coenzyme directly into your bloodstream. This means that your cells can absorb all of it. Nothing is removed by digestion.
NAD also helps your body produce or process several vitamins and other nutrients that are essential to your body's functions. These include the vitamin B complex, vitamin C, and glutathione (an antioxidant). All of these nutrients have many benefits on their own.
After getting the treatment, many people start to experience clearer thoughts or higher energy levels. Many people have often found that more frequent treatments increase their effects. Since you are absorbing the nutrients right into your bloodstream, you may even start to feel the effects before you leave the clinic.
What Can I Add NAD+ To?
You can add an NAD+ boost to any of our IV treatments or you can get a treatment of the coenzyme on its own. If you already had plans to get a specific IV treatment, you can further the benefits by adding a dose of NAD to it.
This is one of the best ways to boost your body’s holistic wellness. You can easily come in for a targeted IV treatment and add a little bit of NAD+ to the mix to bolster your cells’ mitochondria, boost your energy levels and potentially see even wider ranging healthy effects than ever before. Plus, an NAD+ shot is affordable and easy to add to any of our existing therapies.
However, it is important to note that an IV drip full of NAD takes a lot longer to administer than a vitamin drip. Vitamin IVs take about 30 minutes to complete, while a NAD IV can take between 3 and 4 hours. That’s because we have to give your body enough time to thoroughly absorb all of the NAD+ coenzyme before removing the intravenous drip.
Adding NAD to a vitamin drip can still provide you with numerous benefits if you are short on time, possibly giving you the anti-aging benefits that you may want. You can alternatively try our NAD+ shot, which gives a targeted blast of NAD+ without any of the time requirements.
NAD+ therapy is used to provide your body with the nutrients that your cells’ mitochondria need to operate. As you age, these nutrients and coenzymes are found in smaller amounts in your body as everything starts to slow down, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for less daily energy.
By taking the NAD+ treatments, you may be able to help to bring yourself back up to the energy levels you used to have. This may also improve your memory, mental clarity, and metabolism. Those are all great reasons to try NAD, so you may want to consider adding it to your next vitamin drip.
