Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) IV therapy is a type of intravenous treatment that can stimulate cell regeneration in your body. NAD is a coenzyme that binds with elements in your body, offering a host of benefits like reduced withdrawal symptoms during addiction recovery and enhanced cognitive processing.
NAD IV therapy might be something of a buzzword in today’s world, but it’s been used in medical treatments since the late 1960s. Learning about the scientific interaction between enzymes, coenzymes, and how they affect your body can be confusing, but Daniel J. Headrick, MD and our team at Headrick Medical Center are here to help.
Put simply, NAD stimulates healthy brain function and improved performance throughout numerous bodily systems. We’re proud to bring the latest in recovery and healing to our patients, and we offer NAD IV therapy as part of our addiction recovery programs. But the benefits of this revolutionary therapy go beyond recovering from addiction.
Your body relies on vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to function at its best. IV vitamin therapy is an efficient way to get the vitamins you need because the cocktail is delivered directly to your bloodstream, where it’s absorbed quickly.
NAD IV therapy uses the same approach. It delivers a dose of the NAD coenzyme to your blood, where your body can use it best. Without the NAD coenzyme, your body may not have the elements it needs for optimal cell function.
As you get your infusion, NAD molecules bind with proteins in your body to create active enzymes that your body uses to metabolize fuel and revitalize cells. The NAD coenzymes combine with other elements to become niacin vitamin B3, and it’s this vitamin that’s responsible for revitalizing cells from the inside out.
NAD therapy supports healing at a cellular level. It has the power to enhance brain function, increase energy, and boost your overall well-being — and treatment fits into your lifestyle.
A few of the benefits of NAD IV therapy include:
Addiction to drugs or alcohol changes the way your brain works. These changes in brain chemistry are one of the reasons that up to 60% of people in rehab relapse. Despite your best intentions, suffering from addiction means that resisting cravings can sometimes feel impossible.
NAD IV therapy accelerates healing within your brain, which means that you’re less likely to experience cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and the temptation to use. As part of a comprehensive recovery program, NAD IV therapy could reduce withdrawal and other negative symptoms by up to 70% without the need for narcotic medications.
Brain fog is the term used to describe difficulty in achieving clear, focused thoughts. Maybe you feel like you can’t concentrate on a specific task, or perhaps you’ve noticed your productivity declining at work or school.
NAD IV therapy combats brain fog by saturating the cells in your brain with the nutrients it needs to perform better. NAD boosts cognitive function and clears away that hazy feeling so you can focus on the task at hand.
NAD IV therapy offers a host of benefits for the mind, but it also offers plenty of benefits for the body. The NAD coenzyme plays an essential role in activating antioxidants and reducing inflammation, which both work to reduce pain.
NAD therapy can be a beneficial treatment for people with chronic pain and it can reduce symptoms of diabetes. Because NAD therapy increases serotonin levels, the infusion acts as a mood stabilizer and can be helpful for people suffering from depression.
Because NAD IV therapy revitalizes your body beginning with individual cells, it offers whole-body benefits that almost anyone can enjoy. Increased energy levels are one of the most common reasons people seek out NAD therapy.
Increased energy can lead to increased performance in athletes, and NAD IV therapy also improves your body’s metabolic processes. This can help you reach or maintain a healthy weight, particularly when combined with healthy diet and exercise.
NAD IV therapy is a powerful advancement in modern medicine. If you’re ready to start the journey to a clearer mind and enhanced well-being, it’s time to find out if NAD therapy is right for you. Call our office in San Juan Capistrano, California, or book an appointment online today.
