NAD+ Q&A

What is NAD+?

Every activity in your body, from digestion and building proteins to healing, happens in a series of chemical reactions. Each step in a reaction requires certain substances. If one substance is missing, the reaction can’t proceed, limiting essential functions.

NAD+, a molecule abundant in every cell in your body, is essential for more than 500 reactions inside your body, and it has a role in regulating nearly every key function. Without a good supply of NAD+, some aspect of your health begins to suffer.

What are the benefits of NAD+?

Your body depends on NAD+ to produce energy and ensure your brain, nerves, and organs keep working. NAD+ (together with other substances) repairs DNA, protects cells from toxins, strengthens your immune system, and produces neurotransmitters. And, these are just a few examples of its many roles.

If your NAD+ levels fall, your risk of developing health problems increases. A few conditions associated with low NAD+ include:

  • Infections
  • Atherosclerosis (clogged arteries)
  • High blood pressure
  • Dementia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Type 2 diabetes

A deficiency in NAD+ also contributes to chronic inflammatory conditions, such as heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma.

When would I need NAD+ therapy?

You benefit from NAD+ therapy whenever your NAD+ levels fall below normal. NAD+ levels naturally decrease as you get older. Physical stress, whether caused by an illness, chronic health condition, surgery, or intensive athletic training, depletes NAD+.

Your body needs a healthy supply of niacin (vitamin B3) to produce NAD+. If your diet doesn’t include enough niacin from sources like turkey, chicken, salmon, beef, beans, and fortified cereals, you may not have enough NAD+.

What other benefits might I receive from NAD+ therapy?

In addition to supporting your body’s overall health and well-being, an intravenous (IV) infusion of NAD+ may also:

Fight aging

NAD+ supports proteins that repair DNA and protects cells from age-related damage. As a result, it may prevent some diseases that occur as you get older.

Support muscle recovery

NAD+ supports an array of cellular activities that maintain muscle strength and promote muscle recovery after intensive exercise.

Boost cognition and support mental health

As part of its normal activities, NAD+ supports healthy nerves and communication between the nerves in your brain. Additionally, low NAD+ levels are associated with depression and vascular dementia.
