5 Surprising Benefits of IV NAD+

NAD+ is a powerful anti-aging therapy that also supports your skin health, cognition, and much more

5 Surprising Benefits of IV NAD+

NAD+ is a critical molecule found in every cell of your body. When it is deficient, it can affect your aging, cognitive performance, and much more.

What is NAD+?

NAD+ is a coenzyme of vitamin B3 that is vital for healthy metabolism and healing.

#1 NAD Promotes Peak Cognitive Performance

Our cognitive performance can be decreased by multiple factors:

NAD+ plays a critical role in our energy metabolism and reduction of oxidative stress. The normal decline in NAD+ levels with age coincides with the development of cognitive impairment from many of these conditions. Ongoing studies support the mechanism of NAD+ supporting brain health in dementia, diabetes, stroke, age-related cognitive decline, and traumatic brain injury. In fact, NAD+ supplementation appears to protect the integrity of the blood-brain barrier: the cellular barrier that protect the brain from toxins in the blood.

#2 Skin Health and Aesthetics

Our skin is our first line of defense to environmental damage. In fact, NAD+ levels decrease in the skin over time in areas where DNA damage accumulates. NAD+ supports healthy skin in many ways:

#3 NAD Supports Healthy Aging

NAD+ supports healthy aging in multiple ways:

It is believed that NAD+ deficiency actually accelerates aging. These benefits in aging are in addition to its improvements in improving the quality of life.

#4 Cardiovascular Performance is Reinforced by NAD

NAD+ promotes cardiovascular performance through several key pathways:

In fact, NAD+ levels decrease with higher blood pressure and obesity.

#5 Detoxification from Alcohol and Toxins Requires NAD

Your body is exposed to toxins everyday, including:

  • Dietary toxins
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Water and air-borne toxins
  • Healing from infection

Detoxification requires support for oxidation, DNA repair, redox homeostasis, optimized metabolism. NAD+ is central to many of these functions. In particular:
