NAD+ Boost

NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a naturally occurring coenzyme which is important in cell nuclear DNA repair and telomere maintenance. NAD+ plays a critical role in cellular electron transport, DNA repair, and the chemical process of generating energy. Though NAD+ occurs naturally in the body, it decreases with age. NAD+ is one of the most important co-factors for improving mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are intracellular organelles (a.k.a. “energy powerhouses”) where macronutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are converted to energy-rich ATP molecules for the cell. NAD+ helps the liver break down fats that are essential to provide energy for the body. It also helps create ATP, which is a major source of energy for cells.

Research has shown that when NAD+ is given by IV it can improve mental clarity, alertness, concentration, and memory. In addition, NAD+ can slow the aging process, increase brain function, improve athletic strength and endurance, reverse the symptoms of chronic fatigue, overcome mood disorders, and ease anxiety and depression. NAD+ is also used clinically to help manage a wide spectrum of diseases ranging from diabetes to cancer, and is used in functional addiction treatment for alcohol and substance withdrawal.


NAD+ Frequently Asked Questions

What type of NAD+ treatments do you offer?

We offer NAD+ treatments under the Anti-Aging Treatment and Neurogenerative Treatment protocols.


What is the difference between the two?

The Anti-Aging treatment protocol calls for a 250mg infusion of NAD+ delivered over 2 hours, while the Neurogenerative treatment calls for a 500mg infusion of NAD+ over 4 hours.


How long does a NAD+ treatment take?

The NAD+ Boost treatment must be administered via IV over a 2 hour period for Anti-Aging treatment and over a 4 hour period for the Neurogenerative period. In addition to that time, plan on 15 minutes before and after to consult with the administering nurse.


Why does NAD+ take so much longer than other treatments?

Due to the increase of physiological activity caused by the energy-rich ATP molecules, NAD+ must be delivered at a specific rate to keep the increased activity at safe levels.


What are common NAD+ side effects?

Due to an increase in ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) molecules physiological activity increases. This may result in flushing, chills, stomach pain, and heaviness in the chest.


Are there conditions where a NAD+ Treatment would not be recommended?

Yes. There are conditions where NAD+ may not be the optimal treatment plan or may be contraindicated. Please consult your primary care provider before treatment.
