NAD+ Q & A

What is NAD therapy?

NAD, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a substance that occurs naturally in your body. NAD helps cells convert food into energy. This substance is essential for healthy physical function, but illness and substance abuse can deplete your body's reserves of NAD. Some people may also have naturally low NAD levels.

If you don't have enough NAD, you may feel tired or sluggish. Some research suggests that people with low NAD levels may also be at risk for mental illness or prone to substance abuse.

Fortunately, NAD therapy can help. IV infusions can quickly replenish your NAD levels and boost your well-being.

What are the health benefits of NAD therapy?

There are many health advantages to NAD therapy. Some of the benefits you can expect may include:

  • Boost energy levels
  • Improve brain function
  • Balance mood
  • Reduce substance cravings
  • Lower the risk of relapse

NAD works with the proteins in your body to perform essential functions, such as:

  • DNA repair
  • Gene expression
  • Cellular resistance

NAD plays a role in cell regeneration, and increasing NAD levels may help prevent future health problems. 

IV infusions also help you feel more energized and focused. Many people rely on NAD therapy to manage chronic fatigue or cognitive problems. If you struggle with substance abuse, NAD therapy helps you maintain your sobriety. 

What happens during a NAD therapy session?

Coastal Anti-Aging Medical Group offers a range of IV infusions, including NAD therapy. IV infusions are the most effective method for delivering NAD. Your body may struggle to absorb oral supplements, but IV infusions let you utilize NAD right away. 

Infusions take place right in the Coastal Anti-Aging Medical Group office. During each session, the team connects you to a customized IV solution. Your solution may include additional vitamins and nutrients. Most infusions take about 30 minutes, and the team monitors you during your appointment while you read or relax. Afterward, you can resume your normal activities right away.

What results can I expect?

Individual results may vary. Your outcomes will depend on your health and medical history, but most patients respond well to NAD therapy and report few symptoms.

During your consultation, the Coastal Anti-Aging Medical Group team explains what results you can expect. You may need several infusions to achieve your wellness goals. Some patients may also benefit from other treatments and procedures.
