An exciting vitamin therapy called NAD+ is bringing dramatic enhancements to the health and wellness landscape. This all-natural, holistic treatment spurs your body’s own regenerating agents to improve a broad variety of physical and mental conditions. The professionals at MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach, FL are pleased to offer the game-changing NAD therapy.

What Is NAD Therapy?

NAD+ Therapy is an innovative intravenous therapy treatment that supercharges the production of healing molecules in the body. NAD, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a crucial amino acid and “coenzyme” derived from vitamin B3. A coenzyme is a molecule that connects to other enzymes and ends up increasing those enzymes’ overall activity and speed.

A Partner for Regeneration

In essence, this therapy turbocharges the body’s natural healing and regeneration agents, which produces restoration down to the cellular level. Once delivered, NAD+ works to address a broad range of in-body concerns, ranging from pain and fatigue to mental clarity to sleep enhancement and addiction withdrawal. NAD+ therapy also enhances how oxygen interacts with the body: another major plus for health and wellness.

The restorative and protective properties of this treatment help build cells that have been damaged or worn over time. Your body does the work, but it does so more quickly and powerfully than it’s able to on its own. Clinicians have called this therapy’s anti-aging properties the closest thing we’ve found to a fountain of youth.

What’s the Science Behind It?

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, or NAD+ for short, is found in every cell in the body and is an essential building block of life. NAD+ actually participates in more chemical reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule in the body.

Direct Delivery

Unfortunately, it is difficult for NAD+ to be effectively absorbed into the body solely through the digestive system. Therefore, this treatment is intravenous. When a high dose of NAD+ is delivered directly into the bloodstream, it bypasses the digestive system and is absorbed completely.

Once administered, the NAD+ can help repair cells throughout the body, including neurons in the brain. Treatment with NAD+ serves to “bio hack” the body into functioning better on a molecular level. In doing so, it has been shown to relieve a wide variety of conditions and symptoms and can possibly safeguard your body against future health issues.

What Does NAD+ Do?

Since NAD+ is such a powerful molecule in the body, NAD therapy can be helpful for many different physical and mental conditions. Post-treatment patients report increased energy, better mental focus and concentration, improved mood, and sharper memory, eyesight, and hearing. The therapy also helps with pain relief from many conditions and withdrawal symptoms from addictive substances.

Because it uses the body’s own regenerative powers, the effects of this therapy are felt differently by each individual. Healing and enhancement are different in every person due to factors like age, diet, conditioning and other individual specifics. However, NAD+ therapy has been shown to be dramatically beneficial in the following applications:

Overall Wellness

As a supercharged way to deliver the benefits of the B vitamin, NAD+ therapy can be felt throughout the body. Some of the more immediately obvious effects of the treatment may include clearer skin and thicker nails and hair. Recipients also report increased energy, fresher ability to think and concentrate, more restful sleep, and generally feeling and looking younger.

DNA Repair

DNA repair is the most important bodily factor for cell survival and cancer prevention. Unfortunately, there are many ways in which our DNA can be damaged by natural and environmental factors. Damages contribute to aging and a higher risk for cancers, and as the body ages, its DNA repair capabilities decline. NAD+ plays an important role in DNA repair.

Muscle Enhancement

Vascular aging — blood vessels that wither from age — reduces blood flow to our organs and tissues. This decreased blood flow contributes to muscle wasting, frailty, and speeding up the effects of aging. Muscles rely on a robust supply of blood for their function. Exercise helps but can only go so far. The NAD+ therapy helps repair vascular tissue for improved blood flow and muscle regeneration.

Protection for Brain Cells

NAD+ offers a neuro-protective effect, guarding the sheath that surrounds nerve fibers in the brain, optic nerves, and the spinal cord. When the sheath gets damaged, nerve impulses can slow or even stop. This can cause neurological problems, not only within the central nervous system but even throughout the entire body. The NAD+ not only provides present-day enhancements but can even help slow down future neurological decline.

Addiction Therapy

NAD+ therapy and its cellular repair functions have been shown to be a compelling option for detox assistance. NAD+ has been shown to reduce cravings associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal. When NAD is used as a detoxifier, nutrients bath the brain in a pool of natural and highly therapeutic coenzymes. The substance flushes out stored drugs from the body and its organs and helps replenish balance in the brain.

Anti-Aging

As we grow older, our cells become less and less efficient due to the lack of NAD+. Since research has shown that NAD+ can protect tissues and induce DNA repair, the idea has been raised as to whether it can help increase lifespan and slow down age-related degenerative diseases. While there is no confirmation that NAD therapy can reverse aging, there is good reason to believe that increased NAD+ can at least help slow the aging process.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

This therapy is an intravenous treatment performed using a process that is similar to traditional medical IV. The NAD + therapy process is painless and causes little to no discomfort. However, during the process you are encouraged to relax as your body absorbs the healing molecules and encourages optimal health functions.

NAD therapy sessions require some time. Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes or up to two hours. At the beginning of the treatment, your clinician will take your blood pressure and review your medical history before placing an IV line attached to the NAD drip into your arm. Once the drip has started, you can read a book, watch a movie, or listen to music and relax.

After treatment, a small bandage will be placed on the injection site. This can be removed as soon as any bleeding has stopped. The treatment is done on an outpatient basis. Following the sessions, there is no required downtime and you are able to return to your daily activities.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Depending on the patient, results from NAD+ therapy may vary depending on the condition being treated. Although many people experience immediate feelings of improvement following the first session, continued treatments are suggested in order to achieve optimal results.

The right number of treatments depends on the individual and their goals. Those who are looking for a deep brain and body boost can feel the results quickly after treatment. People who are in chronic pain, suffering withdrawal symptoms, or are looking to slow down the aging process will require a series of infusions. Our professionals will work with you to determine the proper amount of therapy for your goals and condition.

Is Therapy Proven?

There is comprehensive evidence that oral supplements in pill form (nicotinamide riboside) can increase NAD levels by about 2.7 times baseline levels. For people who are low on NAD, these pill supplements are a popular first step.

For even better results or more serious conditions, NAD injections provide a more efficiently-absorbed form of NAD. This provides therapeutic benefits that go well beyond the capabilities of oral supplements thanks to the improved bioavailability. Oral pills are not nearly as beneficial as direct NAD into the bloodstream. IV treatment for NAD+ allows the supplement to bypass the digestive system.

Safe Pain Management

Many people live with chronic pain, which over the course of time becomes a “normal” state of being that the body just learns to live with. NAD can play a positive role in the management of pain by modulating pain receptors and neurotransmitters back to normal levels as well as having a restorative effect on nerve tissue. It’s proven to be safe and effective in the management of all types of pain without the risk of addiction to dangerous painkillers.

Detox of All Kinds

Over the past years, NAD+ Therapy has been getting a lot of attention, especially as the preferred choice to stop substance addiction. The popularity of this treatment for addictions of all kinds, such as prescription medications, alcohol and opioids, are due to the observed effectiveness and the treatment’s natural holistic approach.

A study at Harvard Medical School declared that this therapy is the crown jewel of detoxification assistance and has a proven 87% success rate because of its rapid cleanse and restoration therapies. The traditional way of treating addiction was to substitute one drug for another, which is only a quick fix. With NAD therapy, it’s possible to actually repair the brain and eliminate the cravings and anxiety of the addiction.

A Fountain of Youth?

Natural NAD+ production in our bodies is known to decrease with age, and this may limit the body’s ability to repair cells without extra assistance. Clinical studies show that NAD+ supplementation can be an effective way to protect against DNA damage and possibly reverse the signs of aging.

The effects of aging are felt throughout the body, changing our habits, abilities and even our susceptibility to disease. We experience the aging process as a decline in our metabolism and metabolic function. This increases the incidence of age-related metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and others.

Knowing that NAD+ is vital to cellular functioning and that NAD+ levels decrease as we age, many scientists believe a key process in slowing, stopping, or even reversing the aging process is to maintain healthy, youthful NAD+ levels. These incredible benefits can now be obtained on a simple outpatient basis.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Treatments are tailored to the individual needs after a detailed consultation with our expert staff. Depending on the patient, results from NAD+ therapy may vary depending on the condition being treated. Although you can experience immediate improvements following one session, continued treatments are suggested in order to achieve optimal results. Typical therapies for lasting effects can last for 3-14 consecutive days.

How Do I Get Started?

Our bodies want to heal themselves. They want to relieve pain and rejuvenate themselves naturally through sleep, exercise and nutrition. However, for many of us, our bodies can’t keep up with the task as effectively and quickly as we’d like. NAD+ is not only a booster for today: it’s a preventative for tomorrow.
