With all the products on today’s market that promise to make you look and feel younger, you may be wondering about the benefits of taking advantage of “anti-aging” treatments. You may be especially curious about these treatments if you have tried some of the over-the-counter options and have been disappointed with the results.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+, therapy is a type of IV treatment that can stimulate regeneration in the body. This therapy has been around since the 1960s but recently gained more of a spotlight due to its vast healing potential.
NAD+ is present in every living cell in your body, crucial for a number of key physiological processes within the human body. A deficiency in NAD+, or a disruption in NAD+ homeostasis in the body, may impair these physiologic processes, which may result in different illnesses or disease conditions.
NAD+ therapy supports healing at a cellular level. It has the power to enhance neurological function, increase energy, support proper immune function, balance metabolism and boost overall well-being. Unfortunately, aging, consuming alcohol and other noxious substances, adverse stress and illness all contribute to decreased levels of NAD+ in the body.
Over the counter, NAD+ supplements are broken down through digestion and are therefore not as well absorbed and utilized by the body compared to IV therapy.
NAD+ can help individuals who are:
- Interested in anti-aging therapy
- Interested in restoring neurological function
- Experiencing cognitive decline
- Seeking to restore muscle strength and function
- Seeking to boost a weight-loss regimen
- Seeking to reduce their fatigue and improve overall energy levels
You don’t have to wait until you are experiencing a medical condition to experience the benefits of NAD+ IV therapy. This versatile treatment helps promote whole-body wellness and can help your body maintain optimal health and performance over time.
Since NAD+ IV therapy improves your body’s metabolic processes, this therapy can help you
reach or maintain a healthy weight, particularly when combined with a healthy nutrition and exercise regimen.
The various benefits of NAD+ IV will continue to be explored with the advancement of modern medicine. If you’re looking to enhance wellbeing, NAD+ therapy may be right for you.
