Is it the Fountain of Youth or the Magic Bullet? Some say it’s both….. There is a prominent molecule in the body called NAD+ (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) which is required by every cell in the body and within every living species that depends on NAD+ to function. Studies tell us: “It is now becoming a consensus that NAD+ levels decline at cellular, tissue/organ, and organismal levels during the course of aging.” (4)
NAD+ has recently been coined with the term Fountain of Youth. High dose NAD+ IVs have been shown to help slow or reverse the signs of aging by restoring cellular function on all levels so you can do the activities you enjoy most. Whether that’s running marathons, hiking, cooking, or simply spending time with your loved ones, NAD+ therapy has been shown to vastly improve the quality of life in patients ranging from autoimmunity, extreme athletes just wanting better muscle function/recovery, to the everyday working class person struggling with metabolic concerns and consequences of aging in a toxic world.
Some of the primary uses for NAD+ in practice are:
- Chronic fatigue
- Metabolic syndrome
- Cognitive Decline/Poor Memory
- Low Energy
Though NAD+ is typically administered intravenously, regular vitamin and mineral IV/injection therapy can also be used for those same conditions and much more. Intravenous vitamin infusions are a safe way to obtain nutrients and offer a magnitude of advantages. The key advantage to IV therapy is the amount of absorption patients receive. IV therapy is a relatively quick way to boost deficiencies and allow patients to feel better faster. There are an abundance of various IV formulas to fit each and every individual patient’s needs. Ranging from high dose vitamin C for various immune effects to post workout Amino Acids to replenish the tissues, nearly anyone can benefit from IV therapy.
