What is NAD+?
NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a natural molecule found in essentially every cell of the human body. NAD+ is a crucial metabolite that allows the body to utilize energy from food for vital functions such as DNA repair, decreasing inflammation, repairing tissues, and boosting energy. Learn more about the science of NAD here. As humans age, and with chronic illness/stress/addiction, levels of NAD+ in our bodies decrease and this contributes to issues such as decreased energy levels, cognitive impairment, fatigue, drug cravings, and decreased mood. NAD is technically considered a dietary supplement and is yet to gain US FDA approval.
What is IV NAD+ Therapy?
NAD IV Therapy is a type of infusion treatment that offers the opportunity to receive high-dose infusions of NAD+ to quickly and efficiently restore your levels so that your brain and body can adequately heal. IV NAD+ remains the most direct method of raising NAD+ levels. Patients often report a significant increase in energy, improved mood, decreased drug craving, a clearer mind, and overall a feeling of well-being. Patients are usually able to recover from alcohol and opiate withdrawl symptoms significantly faster.
The infusion itself is safe, has no psychoactive effects (meaning you don’t feel mentally altered), and lasts anywhere from 4-8 hours depending on the dose and condition being treated.
What receive NAD at Relevare?
At Relevare we specialize in treating disorders of the brain and nervous system including various mental health, pain, and substance abuse disorders. NAD+ is a powerful tool, that can be used stand-alone, but often patients, especially those withdrawing from alcohol and opiates, will benefit from ketamine therapy in conjunction. At Relevare, you have a thorough intake evaluation with a medical doctor to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.
