NAD IV Therapy Q & A

What is NAD IV therapy?

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a co-enzyme that exists in every living cell on the planet. Your body naturally becomes deficient in NAD as it ages. Other things that can deplete NAD levels in the body are chronic stress, substance abuse, chronic illness, and poor nutrition. When your body is given IV NAD it utilizes it to recover and repair at a maximal level and quickly.

What can NAD IV therapy be used for?

  • Substance abuse detox
  • Anti-Aging
  • Athletic performance boost & recovery
  • COVID long haulers
  • Insomnia
  • Lyme disease
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Traumatic brain injury

Is NAD FDA approved?

No, NAD is not FDA approved, but neither are most supplements that you put into your body. Because NAD is a natural substance it cannot be monetized in the way pharmaceutical companies can profit from. The compounding pharmacy we use gives us multi-level reports for quality control and potency. We use the absolute best of the best in NAD compounding.

How much NAD do I need?

Every person is different. Things that factor into how much NAD you will need depend on what you are using it for. NAD doses range anywhere from 500mg to 1500mg in a single bag. A quick assessment with Dr. Headrick can tell you how much NAD is recommended to get your desired effect.

What are the benefits I will feel from NAD?

Here are some of the major benefits we see from people who utilize NAD:

  • Improved mental clarity
  • Expedited recovery from withdrawal or illness
  • Better eye site
  • Increased energy
  • Increased stamina
  • Increase metabolism
  • Increased mood
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Decreased signs of aging such as loss of skin elasticity, aches and pains, and more
  • Decreased cravings for drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes

These are just some of the major benefits that are seen in those who receive NAD IV therapy.

What should I expect during NAD IV therapy?

As with other vitamin infusion treatments, NAD IV therapy can be a relaxing experience that will leave you feeling energized. Some people do report feeling sleep or tired while on the IV. While you relax in a comfortable chair, your provider inserts the IV needle and hooks up your NAD infusion.

Then you rest for the duration of the infusion which can range anywhere from a couple of hours to 6 hours. You can nap, read, watch television, or even catch up on your emails. After your treatment, you can get right back to your regular activities — there’s no need to take time off to recover.

Depending on your condition, you may need a series of consecutive NAD IV infusions to achieve optimal results.

For example, if NAD IV therapy is part of your plan to decrease withdrawal or recover from illness, your provider usually prescribes 3-5 consecutive daily infusions. Even after your initial series of NAD IV therapy sessions, you may benefit from periodic treatments to maintain the effects.
