NAD+ regulates important biological effects including DNA repair, cellular energy, metabolism, and lifespan. As NAD+ declines with age, this impacts the natural repair mechanisms within the cells. The body becomes more susceptible to aging processes—the consequences are a progressive slowing down of metabolic functions and the development of many age-related pathologies. At VitaLifeMD, we offer various forms of NAD+ therapy. Treatment type and frequency is tailored to your individual needs after a detailed consultation with our practitioners. The most popular form of treatment is the intramuscular route: administered in just a few minutes, at our practice, and with our nurses. Patients usually leave feeling replenished and re-energized, and most describe a beneficial effect for a few days after the injection. A maintenance dose of NAD+ by at-home oral supplement is usually recommended.
Reduce signs of anxiety or depression
General wellness and longevity
Improve metabolism and curb cravings
Boost energy and athletic performance
NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. It is a chemical naturally derived from Vitamin B3 and made by every cell of the body. NAD+ plays a key role in anti-aging and the prevention of age-related conditions. It regenerates the energy at the level of the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cells). Another role of NAD is its action on several groups of enzymes that regulate aging, the Sirtuins proteins known for their ability to “switch on and off” genes that promote aging.
NAD+ enhances brain metabolism and protects against neurons degeneration and cognitive decline. It can elevate the levels of serotonin in the brain and reduces the signs of anxiety and depression in response to stress. Also, it seems that NAD+ could be beneficial for patients suffering from sleep disorders. The overall benefits of NAD+ Therapy include: supports general wellness and longevity, improves metabolism, restores energy and boosts athletic performance, improves mental clarity and memory, enhances mood and reduces anxiety, assists with curbing addictive cravings, and helps reset weak immune system.
