NAD has been shown to contribute to the following health benefits:
• Anti-aging at a cellular level
• Restores cellular energy, mitochondrial dysfunction
• DNA repair and protection
• Increased exercise performance and stamina
• Cognition and memory support; brain health
• Chronic Illnesses
• Neurodegenerative Diseases
• Autoimmune Diseases
• Drug Addiction and Detox
• Depression and Anxiety
• PTSD and Chronic Stress
• Metabolic Syndrome
Known as NAD+ Longevity Therapy or NAD+ Brain Restoration Therapy, NAD is the acronym for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide – a derivative of Vitamin B3. Found in virtually all living cells, NAD+ Longevity Therapy is essential to sustaining life. A fascinating aspect of NAD+ is its dual role in protecting against factors that age us. This includes mitigating chemical stress, environmental toxins, inflammation, DNA damage, and failing mitochondria (powerhouse of our cells.) At the same time, NAD+ also promotes longevity by facilitating DNA repair and providing cellular benefits associated with caloric restriction and exercise. NAD is also necessary for the production of a group of proteins called “Sirtuins” which play a key role in aging, cell death, stress resistance, inflammation, energy efficiency, and mitochondrial biogenesis (creation of more powerhouse cells.)
NAD+ AND AGING:
NAD+ levels markedly decline with age, creating an energy deficit that decreases the
body’s ability to retain youthful, healthy function. As we age our NAD+ levels significantly decrease and in advanced age, they plummet to near zero. To give you an idea how impactful NAD+ IV Longevity Therapy can be, by age 50 a typical person may have only half the NAD+ they did in youth and by age 80, they will only have about 1% of NAD reserves. The rigors of modern day life are also taking a toll on our NAD levels. Even at a younger age, we are seeing NAD Deficiency caused by stress, inflammation, diet, alcohol, and drug use, including prescription drugs. Deficiency of NAD+ predisposes us to accelerated aging and impedes our ability to fully benefit from nutrients, resveratrol and other important antioxidants that protect our cells from aging and disease. NAD plays such crucial roles in aging that one day normal aging may be classified as “NAD+ deficiency syndrome.”
NAD+ AND CHRONIC ILLNESS:
NAD deficiency has also shown to have direct correlation with chronic illness. Low NAD levels result in low levels of cellular energy, which is one of the primary factors of “mitochondrial dysfunction” – a condition that is implicated in a wide variety of chronic illnesses, including diabetes, autoimmune disorders, multiple sclerosis, and many more. Restoring NAD+ levels allows cells to return to full energy status, offering a possible way to undo mitochondrial damage and the resulting chronic illness.
NAD+ AND BRAIN HEALTH:
One of the most impacted organs from NAD+ deficiency is the brain. NAD+ plays a vital role in the brain by mediating brain aging and the tissue damage caused by various brain illnesses. NAD+ helps to replenish the supply of neurotransmitters, improve cognitive functioning, withdraw from addictive substances, overcome anxiety, depression, chronic or acute stress, post-traumatic stress, CTE, and other conditions by giving the brain what it needs to return to proper functioning. NAD+ has been shown to be effective with cases of brain fog, cognitive impairment, and “chemo brain”. It has a powerful capacity to “reset” the brain to its original set point.
Using a direct IV infusion of pure compounded NAD+ from an FDA-registered pharmacy is the most effective and efficient way of raising NAD+ levels. As NAD+ gains popularity in the press and throughout the medical community, there are an increasing number of oral NAD supplements available. However, oral supplements are not regulated and not very effective at raising NAD levels.
NAD+ Therapy & Ketamine IV Therapy
Combination Treatment for Mental Health and Overall Improved Quality of Life
By improving connections and messaging in the brain, we look at ketamine as a form of liquid ambition and a way to improve people’s perspective on life.
