What if you could fuel your body, boost your energy and cognitive function, improve your mood, and reverse the symptoms of aging while simply sitting in a chair and reading a good book? With NAD IV injection therapy, you can get all these benefits and more with the simple prick of a needle.
Whether you’re a professional athlete looking to improve your performance naturally or a student seeking to improve your memory, NAD IV therapy may be able to help. This innovative treatment has gained popularity among celebrities, athletes, and everyday people because it offers an assortment of benefits with very minimal side effects and no down time.
What is NAD IV Therapy and What is a NAD Drip?
NAD regenerative therapy, or NAD IV therapy, is a holistic treatment where the coenzyme NAD+ (the oxidized form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is administered directly into a patient’s bloodstream via an IV drip. This naturally existing coenzyme is derived from vitamin B3 (niacin) and is used by the body in the production of cellular energy.
Essentially, NAD IV treatment provides the body with ample fuel on the cellular level, by increasing levels of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). With higher levels of NAD and ATP, the body can carry out a wide range of functions including an improved ability to regulate metabolism, repair DNA, endocrine signaling and cell apoptosis (programmed cell death).
What are the Advantages of NAD+ IV Therapy?
NAD IV therapy is still being researched and scientists are finding more and more ways this coenzyme aids in the healthy function of our bodies. The array of NAD IV benefits we are currently aware of include:
- Boosts cognitive function
- Prevents weight gain and aids in weight management
- Improves mood
- Reduces the symptoms of depression
- Boosts memory
- Reduces pain caused by inflammation
- Improves athletic performance
- Helps maintain muscle health
- Boosts energy
- Reverses certain symptoms of aging
- Reduces wrinkles
- Improves overall skin appearance
NAD+ IV therapy has also been shown to aid in the addiction recovery process. By reducing withdrawal symptoms, this therapy can make the cessation process easier and give patients a better chance of avoiding relapse. It is, however, important to note that NAD IV therapy is not a cure or treatment for addiction itself.
What Should I Expect During NAD IV Therapy?
Each NAD IV therapy session lasts approximately 90 minutes up to two hours. At the beginning of your treatment, your clinician will take your blood pressure and review your medical history before placing an IV line attached to the NAD drip into your arm. Once the drip has started you can read a book, watch a movie, or listen to music and relax.
You may feel a slight tightening sensation in your chest while the NAD IV is being administered. Some patients also experience mild nausea or a mild headache, but these symptoms can be mitigated by slowing down the infusion rate. You’ll want to let your clinician know if you begin to feel any of these symptoms, so they can make any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort.
After treatment, a small bandage will be placed on the injection site. This can be removed as soon as any bleeding has stopped.
When Will I See Results?
One of the reasons NAD IV therapy appeals to so many people is that it requires zero recovery time and many patients see noticeable results the same day they receive the injections. Some patients experience a feeling of dreaminess or a boost of energy immediately after treatment, though these should not impair you from returning to your normal activities.
