Just as a vitamin or mineral deficiency can lead to a number of physical and mental symptoms or side effects, so can a deficiency in NAD.
If you have heard of Vitamin IV Therapy that helps replenish vitamins & minerals, NAD IV Therapy is essentially the same thing, only replenishing the body with the NAD Coenzyme. IV Therapy providers offer this treatment as a therapeutic treatment by itself or alongside other therapies for improved body and mental function.
Proponents of NAD Therapy Tout the Following Benefits:
NAD Therapy DOES NOT cure or prevent any diseases or ailments, just as vitamins cannot cure or prevent diseases. Though, disease is more prevalent in those with vitamin deficiencies, and likewise a body and brain that has a healthy supply of NAD shows improved function. This is why many doctors and therapists utilize NAD IV Therapy, alongside other medical and holistic therapies, for improved success in treating medical conditions.
As an example, NAD IV Therapy is often used in conjunction with addiction treatment because a NAD-replenished body and mind can make recovery easier and ease the severity of withdrawal symptoms. Just as exercise alongside addiction treatment has been shown to improve successful addiction recovery without future relapse.
NAD IV Therapy during addiction treatment gives additional comfort to the recovering patient. Opioid, alcohol, and benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms can be intense and hard on the body. Proper nutrition, exercise, and NAD+ IV Therapy during addiction recovery can ease withdrawal symptoms, making the effects less intense.
NAD IV Therapy can greatly reduce inflammation in the body. NAD Coenzymes promote antioxidant mechanisms — essential in the protection of the body cells from aging, cancer, and other internal diseases. Therapists will utilize NAD IV Therapy for chronic conditions such as diabetes, chronic pain management, and depression as way to help the body naturally heal itself.
NAD helps the body and brain to naturally balance many factors that lead to your overall mood. NAD+ has been shown to boost serotonin — which naturally helps the body and brain to “feel good.”
A healthy balance of NAD can lead to a quick recovery from depression and other mood disorders, especially if they are caused by addiction / substance use or a deficiency in nutrients.
When recovering from an eating disorder, the body needs to re-adjust its own internal systems, including the systems linked to metabolism. NAD promotes healthy metabolism and NAD IV Therapy can help to aid in metabolic recovery from malnutrition from eating disorders. NAD IV can help to promote the return of a healthy appetite, and help cells to recover more quickly (easing symptoms).
Always consult your doctor or physician before starting and medical treatment* | Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA): “Less than 2 grams per day of NAD is considered safe.” Therapeutic NAD IV Therapy is well below these levels and considered safe.
Your doctor will administer a series of IV bags 1-2 times per month (on average) for as long as the regimen is recommended. For NAD IV therapy for addiction, weight loss, or substance abuse, your doctor may recommend longer sessions or more than 1-2 sessions per month.
NAD IV Therapy has been shown to help with chronic pain management and pain due to inflammation and chronic illness. NAD+ IV Therapy can activate antioxidants which help to protect from free radicals and reduce inflammation. NAD IV Therapy is also helpful with chronic pain management and addiction treatment. It can help to alleviate pain without the need for opioid painkillers.
