What Is NAD+?
NAD+—short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide—is a coenzyme that the body produces naturally, and these coenzymes are found all throughout the body. NAD+ is needed for many of our cellular functions and plays an important role in functions such as energy production, immune function, DNA repair, gene expression, and metabolism. As we age, our natural production of NAD+ declines, which impacts us both physically and mentally.
Supplementing NAD+ can be supportive in a number of ways, such as slowing cognitive decline and reducing symptoms of depression. Though NAD+ was discovered in the early 1900s, scientists are just beginning to understand and unlock the wide range of benefits NAD+ can offer us—most notably, its assistance in mental health regulation.
Benefits of NAD+ Therapy for Mental Health Regulation
When it comes to mental health regulation, NAD+ is a great ally. NAD+ can help boost overall brain health and brain function, and a number of scientific research has been published on the positive effects of NAD+ on brain aging.
Benefits of NAD+ for mental health regulation include:
- Slowing cognitive decline
- Increasing focus and attention
- Helping decrease symptoms of depression
- Promoting healthy brain function
- Reducing inflammation
Many individuals note that after receiving NAD+ therapy, they feel a sense of cognitive clarity or decreased brain fog. This increased sense of mental clarity can help restore a person’s ability to perform tasks and participate in life, and can positively impact symptoms of depression and anxiety as well.
NAD+ IV Therapy
NAD+ IV therapy is the delivery of NAD+ intravenously. IV therapy has gained popularity over the past few years for its ability to deliver hydration and nutrients effectively, as they go straight into a person’s bloodstream. Administered by medical professionals and trained clinicians, a person receiving IV therapy will be asked to just kick back and relax while receiving their nutrients. Sessions may be as quick as 15 minutes or up to an hour or two, depending on the supplements. By delivering NAD+ through an IV drip, we can ensure 100% bioavailability from the molecule, meaning your body will be able to absorb the highest possible amount of the NAD+ coenzymes.
