NAD IV Therapy Q & A

What is NAD IV therapy?

NAD IV therapy delivers an infusion of the NAD coenzymes directly to your bloodstream. NAD is critical to the way your cells metabolize fuel and generate energy. 

When your cells are operating at their peak ability, the increased energy and performance spread through your tissues, organs, and body systems for optimized wellness.

NAD IV therapy initially emerged as an anti-aging treatment to increase your energy levels, mood, cognitive function, and metabolism, and soon, research revealed that NAD IV therapy also supports brain recovery for people suffering from addiction and alcoholism.

What should I expect during NAD IV therapy?

As with other vitamin infusion treatments, NAD IV therapy is a relaxing experience that will leave you feeling energized. While you relax in a comfortable chair, your provider inserts the IV needle and hooks up your NAD infusion.

Then you rest for approximately 45 minutes while you receive the NAD infusion. 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 the optimal results. 

For example, if NAD IV therapy is part of your addiction treatment plan, your provider usually prescribes 10-14 consecutive daily infusions. Even after your initial series of NAD IV therapy sessions, you may benefit from periodic treatments to maintain the effects. 

What are the benefits of NAD therapy?

NAD therapy accelerates your body’s natural healing and regenerative abilities and increases your cellular energy, which helps your body function at optimal levels, providing a variety of benefits.

NAD therapy can reduce your withdrawal symptoms and cravings without the need for any narcotic medications such as Suboxone®. Patients report a 60-70% decrease in symptoms as well as a rapid return to health. 

In addition to addiction treatment support, NAD IV therapy may provide other benefits, including:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved muscle mass
  • Weight loss
  • Mood stabilization
  • Reduced symptoms of diabetes
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved brain power
