Understanding NAD+ and the Benefits of NAD+ Therapy
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, more commonly referred to as NAD+, is found in every cell in the body and is essential to life. As a coenzyme to Vitamin B3, NAD+ participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule. It helps transfer the energy we get from food to the rest of our body and is a cornerstone to maintaining healthy internal organs and neurological systems.
When a high dose of NAD+ is delivered directly into the bloodstream by way of intravenous (IV) infusion, it help bypass the digestive system for efficient absorption. The NAD+ can help repair cells throughout the body including neurons in the brain. The NAD+ Therapy allows your cells to produce more energy and may optimize many cellular functions throughout the body.
Since NAD+ is such a powerful molecule in the body, high dose IV therapy can be helpful for many different physical and mental conditions. Patients who have participated in NAD+ Therapy reported increased energy, mental clarity, focus and concentration, improved mood, memory, eyesight and hearing as well as decreased pain and withdrawal symptoms. NAD+ Therapy Aids in Anti-Aging
As we age, our cells become less and less efficient due to the lack of NAD+. Research has shown that NAD+ has a unique ability to protect tissues, induce DNA repair, and help increase lifespan. As such, several universities have been investigating these properties and beginning discussions about using NAD+ Therapy as a potential treatment for age-related degenerative diseases.
While there is no confirmation that NAD+ Therapy can reverse aging, there is reason to think that increased NAD+ can at least help slow the aging process.
Aging and its effects, which can be considered as a disease among other diseases that appear over time, may be slowed by adding NAD+ Therapy to one’s routine.
Although some questions remain, recent studies into NAD+ Therapy show low toxicity and high effectiveness on the way towards a longer, better life.
NAD+ Therapy and Exercise
A group of Australian exercise scientists conducted a study to observe the effects of taking an antioxidant supplement before exercising. Among other findings, their research revealed that increased NAD+ levels improved exercise performance and endurance.
The participants in the study above took an oral supplement that stimulated NAD+ so it is likely that a direct IV infusion of NAD+ may be even more effective at improving athletic performance. NAD+ Therapy can help trained and untrained athletes meet their exercise goals.
