NAD+ How does it work?

This is how NAD therapy works 

NAD+ IV therapy involves the direct administration of NAD+ into the bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) drip. This method allows for a rapid and efficient delivery of NAD+ to cells throughout the body, bypassing the digestive system where absorption can be less effective.

Here’s how NAD+ IV therapy works:

  1. Direct InfusionNAD+ is administered directly into the bloodstream, ensuring that the coenzyme reaches tissues and cells quickly and at higher concentrations than oral supplements can provide.
  2. Cellular Uptake: Once in the bloodstream, NAD+ is readily absorbed by cells. This boosts the levels of NAD+ within cells, enhancing their ability to produce energy and perform various metabolic functions.
  3. Energy ProductionNAD+ is crucial for the function of mitochondria, the energy-producing structures within cells. Increased NAD+ levels improve the efficiency of the mitochondria, leading to better energy production and cellular function.
  4. DNA Repair and Anti-AgingNAD+ plays a key role in DNA repair and the regulation of genes involved in aging. Higher levels of NAD+ support these processes, potentially slowing down the aging process and improving cellular health.
  5. Neuroprotection: In the brain, NAD+ supports neuronal function and protection, potentially improving cognitive function and reducing symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases.

Overall, NAD+ IV therapy aims to replenish declining levels of this critical coenzyme, thereby enhancing overall cellular function, energy production, and potentially offering anti-aging benefits.
