Celebrities are always first in line for the next-best anti-aging and longevity services to keep them performing at their best and looking good while doing it.
That is why celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber discuss enjoying services such as NAD+ Therapy as a core component of their self-care routines and it is even reported that Justin Bieber has been sleeping in a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber to combat his chronic health issues.
Why are these services becoming so popular amongst A-listers and what are the benefits?
NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and this molecule reacts with oxygen in every cell of the body, specifically in the mitochondria. NAD is required for several cellular functions, particularly those involving the conversion of nutrients. NAD helps convert proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals to ATP (energy).
As a cofactor, NAD is involved in hundreds of reactions in the body and plays an integral role in:
As mentioned above, NAD+ has a profound impact on the health of mitochondria. Nicknamed the “powerhouse of the cell”, boosting mitochondrial health can lead to enhanced energy levels.
It is important to note that studies show mitochondrial function decreases with age, although experts are not exactly sure why. Evidence suggests that low functioning mitochondria may lead to cardiovascular disease, decreased brain functioning, and a lack of vitality.
It is believed that contributors to mitochondrial dysfunction include oxidative stress from free radicals, stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and chronic inflammation.
This is where NAD+ Therapy comes into play as it can combat mitochondrial damage as a result of oxidative stress.
One of the potential major benefits you might experience from NAD+ therapy is a boost in brainpower. More specifically, many experience improved memory recall, concentration, mental clarity, and mental energy.
Sluggishness, brain fog, and poor memory are no longer part of the aging process thanks to NAD+ IV Therapy.
This is once again due to the positive impact NAD+ Therapy has on the body, specifically the brain. As the brain consumes about one-third of all the energy produced in the body, making NAD a critical component of brain health. Research shows that NAD helps stimulate the production of brain-boosting hormones such as serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline. As a result, NAD has been shown to enhance overall cognitive function.
Because NAD+ Therapy has been shown to combat oxidative stress, one of the main contributors to inflammation, it can help with pain reduction.
Inflammation is linked to many conditions associated with pain and discomfort from a sore and overworked knee to Rheumatoid Arthritis.
NAD+ Therapy can help your body produce antioxidants that combat inflammation and capture free radical oxygen molecules, which damage tissues if left unchecked.
Additionally, we recommend the addition of glutathione to any NAD+ treatment as this “master antioxidant,” is a key contributor to preventing and reducing oxidative stress. This is because glutathione is naturally produced in the liver and is involved in bodily processes such as tissue building and repair, the production of essential proteins, and immune system function.
The combination of these two powerful healing agents are likely to reduce discomfort and alleviate pain post-treatment.
Naturally, the above elements combine to indicate that NAD+ may enhance athletic performance to some degree. While NAD+ can’t make your muscles stronger by itself, NAD+ may lend you additional energy for your next athletic event.
On top of that, NAD+ is a major coenzyme needed for muscle development. Therefore, if you want to build muscle efficiently and effectively, NAD+ could help supercharge your efforts (at least when combined with a solid workout regimen and a good diet).
Studies have shown that NAD+ Therapy can be an effective weight loss management tool due to its positive effects on your metabolism.
Because your metabolism slows down with age, NAD+ Therapy can help give it a boost and more effectively processes cellular fuel. In other words, this treatment may help you burn calories more efficiently. Thus, if you combine NAD+ Therapy at Next Health with a proper diet and exercise regimen, you might just see fantastic weight loss results in no time.
Yes, you read that right. NAD+ Therapy can actually help delay and even reverse signs of aging.
Nicknamed, “The Fountain Of Youth” NAD+ Therapy has been shown to help reduce the appearance of skin wrinkles and aging spots as well as difficulty moving or low mobility. This is because replenishing your body’s supply of this powerful coenzyme will help improve overall cellular communication and function.
This, in turn, could lead to the reduction of aging symptoms, especially those related to appearance or mobility. In a way, NAD+ can help revitalize or reinvigorate your body's cells. Though it’s not the same as stopping aging outright, NAD+ therapy could help delay the onset of aging symptoms in this manner.
Because NAD+ has such a wide range of benefits, it is a great addition to nearly everyone’s health optimization journey. Moreover, as we lose approximately 40% of our NAD+ supply by the age, this next level service is particularly beneficial to those over 40.
Next Health offers the Anti-Aging Trifecta, three NAD+ Infusions (300 mg or 750 mg) over the course of seven days, for the most promising results.
The air we normally breathe is not 100% oxygen pure oxygen and, it contains many potentially harmful compounds that we are exposed to on a daily basis. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is designed to give our bodies a break from these harmful substances and allow us to breathe in 95% pure oxygen.
During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, the higher levels of oxygen are absorbed into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymphatic system, and bones. When our cells and systems receive more oxygen, healing processes are supported for optimal cellular repair, leading to a variety of benefits:
This therapy has been shown to reduce the symptoms of poor blood flow and circulation as it helps bodily tissues receive more oxygen. When circulation is poor, your blood is not able to effectively transport a sufficient amount of oxygen around your body, causing tissues to receive less oxygen. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy allows your body to receive concentrated oxygen, improving the amount of oxygen tissues are receiving.
Research shows that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can improve the release of growth factors and other restorative cells. This is because as your body takes in more oxygen, these cells are released at a higher rate. This helps to promote healing and wound regeneration.
Supporting cellular repair is likely one of the reasons Justin Bieber enjoys this therapy as he battles chronic Lyme disease and Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which has resulted in facial paralysis. As these conditions damage bodily tissues as well as cause inflammation and other issues, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can be an effective addition to any treatment plans in order to boost oxygen levels, increase the release of growth factors, and accelerate overall recovery.
As touched on above, when bodily tissues receive the proper amount of oxygen required for optimal function, it combats tissue damage. As a result, swelling can be reduced as your body minimizes inflammation and restores tissues. This can also help reduce soreness, muscle fatigue, and more.
Immune cells also require oxygen to function. Thus, improving your body’s oxygen levels can result in improved immune health and improve cellular ability to fight off bacteria and viruses.
Because the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy gives your body a break from inhaling toxins and provides your cells with pure oxygen, it is a great way to support detoxification. In other words, while giving your body a break from toxin exposure, you can also help promote the health of cells that help filter out toxins.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is great for anyone looking to experience the benefits above. as The Next Health Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber is a pressurized compartment that is equipped with comfortable seating, charging ports, air conditioning, and provides 95% pure oxygen. The Chamber’s air is also purified with filters and UV light for best results.
This service can be done consistently. For ideal results, our medical experts encourage bi-weekly sessions and advise you to book a 60-minute appointment every time you stop by a Next Health storefront.
*Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is available at our West Hollywood and Studio City locations.
