Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) is a crucial amino acid and coenzyme of Niacin (Vitamin B3) that is found in every cell of your body. NAD+ promotes cellular energy by converting food into energy, repairs DNA and increases sirtuin enzyme activity which in the long run can help increase metabolism, decrease inflammation, extend cell life and prevent neurodegeneration.
With NAD+ serving as a catalyst in ultimate brain renovation, it helps to drastically reduce drug dependence by rejuvenating the opiate receptors and replenishing brain nutrients that have been depleted by substance abuse. NAD+ additionally helps make more ATP (the primary carrier of energy in cells) which minimizes withdrawals from addictive substances and restores brain function so one can focus on recovery and reaching optimal health.
One of the most impacted organs from NAD+ deficiency is the brain. NAD+ serves as a catalyst in ultimate brain renovation, allowing us to replenish our supply of neurotransmitters, improve cognitive functioning, withdraw from addictive substances, overcome anxiety, depression, chronic or acute stress, and other conditions by giving the brain what it needs to return to proper functioning. It has a powerful capacity to reset the brain to its original set point.
NAD+ is the considered to be the closest to a fountain of youth. It has two basic jobs in the human body without which life would not be possible — It plays a key role in metabolism by helping to turn nutrients into energy and it plays a key role in the creation and activation of Sirtuins — also known as “the longevity genes” or “guardians of the genome.”
Sirtuins are responsible for regulating the cellular aging process and protecting your DNA. however they can only function in the presence of NAD+. Although we naturally produce NAD+, like most things, it reduces with age and the function of sirtuins become limited.
The intravenous use of NAD+ activates enzymes in the bloodstream to promote the good aspects of your genes which facilitates staying healthier longer and slows the aging process.
HOW DOES NAD+ THERAPY WORK
NAD+ turns nutrients into ATP, the energy currency of each cell, and while NAD+ plays a role in hundreds of chemical functions throughout your body, its main purpose is to fuel metabolic reactions forward, similar to gas in your car. Without it, your cells are not able to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and amino acids.
By replenishing cellular levels of NAD+ intravenously straight into the bloodstream and cell tissue (allowing 100% absorption), it’s proven to do the following:
