NAD is the building block of a healthy body that the brain, our internal organs, and neurological systems need to function at optimal efficiency.
Why is NAD important?
As we age, our NAD levels decline. Addiction, depression, stress, and illness also deplete our NAD+ levels. A significant increase in NAD levels helps to restore brain functionality. As a result, patients have experienced increased clarity of mind, better problem-solving ability, improved focus and concentration, increased energy, improvement in mood, decreased anxiety levels, and reduced cravings. This revolutionary alternative treatment heals brain-destroying diseases such as alcoholism, addiction, chronic stress, depression, and anxiety.
What does NAD do?
What if there was a compound that could turn back time, restore energy, improve athletic performance, bring back clarity of thought, reverse depression and help cure cravings for alcohol and drugs even in the most addicted individuals?
: There is such a substance. It is called NAD, and it occurs naturally in every cell in your body.
Compelling research has shown that supplementing with NAD may help you withdraw from addictive substances safely, overcome anxiety and depression, handle acute and chronic stress more effectively.
: In fact, clinics across the US are starting to use I.V infusions of NAD to help people withdraw from drug and alcohol addiction with minimal symptoms in as little as 5-14 days of treatment. These individuals report feeling calm and content and say they lost their “cravings” after a full course of treatment.
: NAD may prolong life, protect DNA, slow down aging and help restore function in neurodegenerative illness due to its effects on the genes that govern aging.
: Unfortunately, drugs, alcohol, stress, medications, chronic illness, and age all contribute to a decrease in our NAD stores. As NAD goes down, so does our energy. Cells age and deteriorate. Your health falls apart at the very root.
: This I.V aims to undo that process by replenishing NAD. Using I.V infusion therapy, we administer this anti-aging compound directly into your blood circulation, so your cells have access to as much as they need.
Between 3-14 consecutive days of NAD therapy combined with amino acid infusions, minerals, and B-Vitamins are typically recommended for full effect.
NAD is needed for metabolic functions to take place in all the cells in your body, including your brain. Scientists have shown that NAD significantly decreases as we age, so it’s beneficial to replenish NAD levels so your body can function at optimal levels. NAD is involved in these roles throughout the body:
1. Energy production (ATP): NAD helps your cells convert food into energy by acting as an electron transporter during cell metabolism.
2. DNA repair: A constant supply of NAD is needed for the activation of PARPs, which detect and repair damaged DNA.
3. Gene expression: Your body has a class of proteins called: that help regulate specific metabolic pathways and genetic interpretations. Sirtuins are NAD-dependent and the more sirtuin activity, the better for health and longevity. Increased sirtuin activity can help increase metabolism, decrease inflammation, extend cell life, and prevent neurodegeneration.
4. Cell signaling: NAD is also released from the intercellular space to the extracellular space for communication. Research is revealing that NAD and ATP may alert the immune response when the cell is under stress or when there is inflammation.
5. Neurotransmitter: Although more research still needs to be conducted, in some instances, NAD+ meets the pre- and postsynaptic criteria for a neurotransmitter. NAD is released from smooth muscle, neurosecretory cells, and brain synaptosomes for cell-to-cell communication.
6. Enzyme activity: NAD is used in processes such as metabolizing alcohol and converting lactate to pyruvate in the body.
What is NAD Therapy?
NAD Therapy involves a high dose of intravenous infusion of NAD that goes straight into the bloodstream. IV therapy allows NAD to bypass the digestive system for better absorption. NAD works rapidly to repair cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain. When your NAD levels are increased, your cells produce more energy, your good genes are “turned on,” DNA is repaired, and many other functions are optimized. Since NAD is such an influential and prolific molecule in the body, high dose IV therapy can be helpful for many different conditions including:
Research of NAD also shows promise for therapy of sleep disorders and behavioral disorders such as autism.
At the end of treatment with NAD therapy, clients have reported the following benefits:
Increased mental clarity
Increased focus and concentration
Improved eyesight and hearing
An Enhanced sense of purpose
Reduced cravings for substances
Minimal to no withdrawal symptoms during treatment
Detoxification and Addiction Recovery
NAD+ therapy is unlike any other therapy because it helps to rebalance the brain and body. This allows for gentle detoxification with minimal withdrawal symptoms and a reduction in cravings. NAD+ can flush all the toxins out of your body while revitalizing your cells damaged by chemicals and toxins. Many report the rapid dissipation of brain fog from the NAD+ treatment, compared to those who use other detoxification methods.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, can feel like a crippling illness with very little hope for a full recovery. There is no diagnostic test for CFS or set of biological markers, let alone a widely accepted treatment. Over 1 million adults diagnosed with CFS in America are struggling with everyday activities, such as doing the dishes or walking up a flight of stairs.
The mitochondria within your cells are susceptible to defects and damage for various reasons. Mitochondria are structurally unique because they were once a type of bacteria that invaded the cell. But through the course of evolution and time, mitochondria have made a permanent home in our cells. Unlike nuclear DNA, often seen in the shape of an ‘x,’ mitochondrial DNA is always in the shape of a ring. While this allows the DNA to be transcribed easily, it also makes it vulnerable to damage. Chronic stress, disease, certain prescribed drugs, and opiates interfere with NAD+metabolism, thus short-circuiting the energy production of cells. This is like Superman trying to fly with kryptonite in his pocket.
NAD+ supports the brain by rebalancing neurotransmitters and promoting the growth of new brain cells and neurons. This promotes mental clarity and emotional health.
Research from Harvard University and other Universities recently published how NAD+ plays an important role in DNA repair. Protecting your DNA will help prevent your risk for many degenerative diseases.
Increase and Boost Energy Levels
NAD+ is used to help support mitochondrial function, the part of the cell that produces energy. Without enough NAD+, the mitochondria cannot support normal cellular function, resulting in cell death. NAD+ can be rapidly depleted by excess DNA damage, thus limiting the amount of energy a cell can produce.
Many types of chronic pain are associated with nerve damage. NAD+ can repair the nerves, as well as repair the body from injury and damage. Doctors and other health providers would agree that pain is often caused by low grade and chronic inflammation. Diet, stress, exercise, environmental toxins and certain medications are just a few factors that can lead to inflammation of the body, along with enhancing energy metabolism and cell vitality. While there many factors that cause inflammation and pain, researchers have identified key enzymes involved in the regulation of inflammation. Eleytroyles are also very important, joints and bones need salts, once depleted you rub bone on bone causing pain and inflammation to occur. Sirtuins are a class of NAD+ -dependent enzymes that mainly function to turn on or off gene expression. Many of these genes are linked to regulating inflammation, along with enhancing energy metabolism and cell vitality. Sirtuins are known to play a protective role by reducing inflammation, especially in CRPS and neurodegeneration. The metabolism of NAD+ is responsible for the activation of these important Sirtuins and thus reducing inflammation. Changing lifestyle factors, such as diet, supplementation, exercise and stress reduction, are natural and effective ways to reduce inflammation. NAD+ has been studied for reducing inflammation and its role in protecting the cells. NAD+ is a promising therapy for chronic pain, as well as other chronic conditions and detoxification from chemical dependence, especially opioids.
