NAD, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is a compound found in every living cell and is a critical component of cellular energy production. NAD also works with very important proteins in the body that carry out numerous biological processes to include:
- DNA repair
- Mitochondrial function
- Natural anti-inflammatory
- Protects against neurodegenerative disorders
- Optimize energy levels
- Increase muscle function and athletic performance
- Improve mental clarity
NAD also affects how your body responds to age-related diseases which is important considering that as we age, our NAD levels drop. NAD can help slow the rate of aging and enable more efficient DNA repair. As a result, your body restores the appearance of your skin, as well as helping to reduce and prevent wrinkles. NAD has also been found to lengthen telomeres, which are the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes that naturally become shorter as we age. Sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it!? Well, there’s more.
We could spend hours writing a blog about the numerous benefits that NAD IV therapy provides, but we understand you’re a busy person so we’re going to highlight just four more reasons why NAD infusions are so amazing.
- Pain Relief: Sirtuins play a crucial role in the body’s inflammatory response and antioxidant expression. Sirtuins can reduce inflammation which in turn alleviates pain, however sirtuins require the NAD+ coenzyme in order to function properly and reduce that inflammation.
- Boost Energy: This is one of the biggest complaints we receive at Elevation Hydration. Clients come in daily saying “I’m dragging, I have zero energy. Can you please help!?”. Yes, we can. ATP is the body’s biggest fuel source, and it supports many processes within the body such as cellular respiration, replication of DNA, and muscle contractions. NAD aids in the production of ATP, which in turn boosts energy levels and reduces feelings of tiredness or exhaustion. NAD IV therapy is often prescribed to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and it can also help people recovering from jetlag.
- Improving Cognitive Function: NAD therapy has been shown to improve memory, focus, and overall cognition. It all has to do with those ever-important sirtuins that we mentioned a minute ago. NAD provides these situins with the coenzymes they need to boost mental clarity and essentially “clear out the cobwebs”.
- Athletic Performance & Recovery: NAD IV therapy works on two different planes when it comes to physical activity. Obviously, your muscles are going to need the fuel to get through that next workout which NAD provides, but NAD also helps repair those muscle tissues afterwards, so you can build stronger muscles and increase your muscle mass.
NAD IV Therapy is a remarkably safe and highly effective way to heal the body from the inside out, starting at the cellular level. Stronger cells equate to a stronger immune system, a stronger brain, a stronger you. Elevation Hydration offers the most affordable NAD pricing in the state along with a highly experienced, compassionate team. If you’re ready to get serious about your health, NAD IV therapy might be the perfect fit for you!
