NAD+ IV Therapy

Use the power of NAD IV Therapy to transform, repair and restore your body and mind.

What is NAD IV Therapy?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme that serves as an essential cofactor and substrate for hundreds of critical cellular processes. It is present almost everywhere but found in especially high concentration in the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cells, and in the nucleus, where our DNA is stored. NAD+ has thousands of functions, and many are yet to be discovered. However, we know its function is paramount in generating energy (ATP), repairing our DNA, regulating our immune system and extending the telomere in our chromosomes. The latter function has been linked to reversing the ageing process.

It helps protect against DNA damage and oxidative stress. Both processes are linked to developing diseases. However, it levels reduce with ageing and in response to either excessive DNA damage due to free radical. It also declines naturally when we are exposed to a great deal of stress.

Recent studies have shown that enhancing NAD+ levels can profoundly reduce oxidative cell damage in catabolic tissue, including the brain. Therefore, promotion of intracellular NAD+ anabolism represents a promising therapeutic strategy for age-associated degenerative diseases in general and is essential to the effective realisation of multiple benefits of healthy sirtuin activity.

NAD+ Infusions - FAQs

Where does NAD+ come from?

Our body can produce NAD+ de novo from tryptophan, an essential amino acid which we need to obtain in from food.

NAD+ can also be synthesised from nicotinic acid, nicotinamide and nicotinamide riboside. These compounds can be taken up from the diet and are termed vitamin B3 or niacin.

Where is NAD+ made?

NAD+ is made in all our cells. Due to it paramount importance, there are three different pathways to obtain this crucial molecule. Different tissues use these pathways to a greater or lesser extent to provide enough supply of NAD+.

  • “De Novo Pathway,” starting from the essential amino acid L-tryptophan.
  • “Preiss-Handler pathway,” using nicotinic acid, a form of vitamin B3 (niacin)
  • “Salvage Pathway” from niacinamide (nicotinamide), the non-flushing form of vitamin B3.

How does NAD+ work?

NAD+ is a coenzyme crucial in the Krebs cycle in the mitochondria to generate energy (ATP). It also helps other enzymes to repair the DNA, and extending the telomeres of our chromosomes, directly linked to potential anti-ageing qualities.

NAD+ helps protect against DNA damage and oxidative stress. Both processes are linked to developing diseases.

What does NAD+ stand for?

NAD+ does stand for “nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide” and it is a critical coenzyme found in every cell in your body, and it's involved in hundreds of metabolic processes. NAD+ is an important conveyor of hydrogen and electrons for the cell and is essential for the continued production of energy (ATP) by the mitochondria.

Are NAD+ infusions safe?

Intravenous infusions or drips are administered directly into the bloodstream. This way, NAD+ is directly available to the cells 100%, since it bypasses the digestive system.

NAD is delivered via a saline solution which hydrates your body and simultaneously helps to flush out toxins and free radicals.

Do NAD+ infusions have any side effects?

NAD+ infusions are generally well tolerated. Some people is NAD+ can experience the sensation of dizziness, nausea or even shortness of breath. These symptoms are directly linked to the speed the infusion is administered. Therefore, these symptoms will quickly disappear by reducing the speed of the infusion.
