Targeting Anxiety & Depression

As you age, certain enzymes are found in the body, which get depleted. These specific enzymes are vital for overall health, brain functionality, and combating aging. One of the most important coenzymes that can be found in your body is called NAD.







    • Supplementing with Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) may reduce anxiety
      and depression, especially as it relates to aging-related symptoms.
    • Low levels of NAD may be linked to various mental and physical health conditions.
      Diminished NAD levels have been shown to increase the risk of anxiety disorders,
      such as generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder.
    • Research suggests that those suffering from anxiety or social anxiety disorders may
      find relief from their symptoms if NAD levels are restored through supplementation.
    • NAD IV Therapy is a type of intravenous therapy that delivers very high doses of
      NAD to patients suffering from acute or chronic mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.
    • NAD treatments are administered intravenously for more effective delivery. The goal
      is to improve symptoms of anxiety and depression so that you can function at home
      and work without feeling overwhelmed.
    • PureDropIV offers at-home NAD IV therapy appointments. This is an increasingly
      popular option for those with high anxiety or depression who don’t have time to
      schedule regular, in-office treatment sessions.

    Let’s Talk NAD Science

    NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme composed of two nucleotides joined by their phosphate groups. One nucleotide contains an adenine base, and the other contains nicotinamide. In humans, NAD can be synthesized from food sources containing tryptophan and vitamin B3, or niacin. Low levels of NAD result in impaired mitochondrial function, which can lead to symptoms of anxiety and depression.

    NAD is a naturally occurring chemical compound that plays many important roles in metabolism. Our body makes much of the NAD that it needs by breaking down food sources and recycling NAD precursors in what is called a salvage pathway. NAD is vital to cellular health. It catalyzes many enzymatic activities that are essential to energy production, cellular health and longevity.

    NAD has been implicated in a number of important redox reactions that support cellular respiration, glycolysis, and ATP production. In addition, NAD acts as a fuel source for synthesis and protection of DNA and RNA.

    NAD can be synthesized from tryptophan or taken from food as niacin (vitamin B3). Low levels of NAD can cause anxiety and depression and impair mitochondrial function.
    Supplementation with niacin increases circulating NAD and reduced depression in certain patient populations. In particular, supplementation with NAD precursors has improved conditions related to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide deficiency syndromes.


    The Role NAD Plays in Anxiety & Depression

    Supplementing with nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) may reduce anxiety and depression, especially as it relates to aging-related symptoms. Due to low levels of NAD in our cells, levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) are reduced in tissues that have higher energy demands—like our nervous system and muscles. This may be why taking NAD can improve anxiety, depression, and fatigue in adults.

    Boosting energy levels is important for those suffering from symptoms of anxiety and depression because this improves their mood and sense of well-being. It can also help them get more done throughout the day. Those who suffer from anxiety and depression should discuss NAD therapy with a healthcare provider to begin feeling better today.

    Patients should discuss recommended doses and time frames with their healthcare provider. Improving NAD levels tends to boost common anxiety and depression symptoms.

    What You Need to Know About Anxiety & Depression

    Anxiety and depression can affect individuals in unique ways, but there are certain commonalities between the two conditions. Understanding what to look out for may be key when distinguishing which symptom could be indicative of either anxiety or depression – awareness is power!


    Anxiety is more than just a feeling — it’s an entire spectrum of conditions that can have serious consequences on your well-being. From panic disorders to phobias, untreated anxiety can take its toll with physical side effects like sleep deprivation and tension, not to mention the emotional strain all this brings along.

    Anxiety presents itself in a variety of ways, but the most common symptoms related to feelings of anxiety may include:

    • Muscle tension
    • Unexplained weight change
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Heart palpitations
    • Increased restlessness
    • Feelings of fear or panic without an obvious trigger

    Battling anxiety can be a lifelong journey, but developing healthy strategies to manage it is essential for long-term wellbeing. By taking steps towards reducing this condition over time you will gain invaluable guidance on the path to emotional health.


    Feeling the blues every now and then is something we all go through. But ongoing, persistent depression for two weeks or more could be a sign of chronic depression; it’s much deeper than acute sadness! With various types to recognize, understanding how this condition works can help you find support when needed most.

    • Insomnia or hypersomnia
    • Significant change in weight
    • Suicidal ideations
    • Sustained feelings of guilt or worthlessness

    Chronic depression can be profoundly damaging to key areas of life, such as socializing and work. Thankfully, there is a solution that may assist in alleviating the symptoms – NAD depression IV infusions! These treatments have been proven effective for minimizing depression related struggles and restoring your mood to its peak state. With regular use over time, it could make managing anxiety or depressive conditions much easier – allowing you to get back on track with everyday tasks without fear of relapse or regression.

    What is NAD IV therapy?

    Feeling drained and uninspired? It may be due to your body’s decreasing levels of NAD. Fortunately, restoring these depleted stores with NAD IV therapy can give you the natural boost necessary to achieve maximum cellular performance. At-Home NAD IV is an innovative way to receive 100% bioavailability directly into bloodstream so that anxiety, depression and fatigue are a thing of the past.

    Qualified medical professionals administer the treatment via a small IV catheter placed in a vein in your arm. Clients are monitored throughout the process. There is minimal risk of side effects with NAD IV Therapy. Still, some people may experience minor reactions like flushing, dizziness, headache, nausea, anxiousness, or fast heart rate.

    With any type of IV therapy, the prescribed dosage enters directly into the bloodstream, so there is no need for digestion which can often slow down how much or how quickly it is absorbed. This allows NAD IV Therapy to work more quickly than oral supplements, and clients report reduction in anxiety and depression symptoms almost immediately after their infusion.

    IV therapy used to only be done in a hospital or clinic setting. Times have changed, and companies like PureDropIV offer at-home infusions of NAD that can be administered without the hassle of scheduling appointments and sitting in waiting rooms. This might just be the solution for you if desiring treatments in the comfort of your own home at your leisure is most preferred.

    What’s Contained Within a NAD IV treatment?

    At PureDropIV, our registered nurses evaluate each client individually interested in NAD IV therapy. If this is a client’s first time receiving NAD IV therapy, the nurse will administer our base formula of hydrating sterile saline solution (1000mL) and 250mg of NAD.

    During an initial or follow up appointment, PureDropIV nurses may make recommendations for treatment add-ons or advise of treatment regularity. Supplementation of IV NAD is a great way to improve cognitive function, reach and maintain optimal health and peak performance. PureDropIV recommends gradually increasing dosage of NAD up to 500mg over a series of appointments to supercharge neurological function and diminish feelings of anxiety and depression.

    NAD IV Therapy Delivered to You for Anxiety & Depression

    Taking care of your mental health is essential. To ensure long-term management, therapies and lifestyle changes are often utilized in conjunction with IV NAD treatments to reduce the symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. But that’s not all – as it turns out, IV NAD therapy can even make sure you stay on top form if you’re an active individual by flushing our damaging free radicals from cellular oxidation caused during exercise – a great way to take charge of total body wellness!

    Additionally, staying properly hydrated helps your body’s systems run at peak performance, reducing everyday stress and improving long-term health. IV fluids and electrolytes from an IV NAD can give you an extra boost by ridding your system of destructive toxins that lead to accelerated aging.

    Quick Answers to Common Questions

    How long does a NAD IV treatment take?

    NAD+ IV therapy treatments take approximately two and half hours for a standard 250mg dose. As your dose is increased, the time required to infuse the NAD+ will need to be increased to avoid unwanted and uncomfortable side effects. PureDropIV has researched and tested various NAD+ IV therapy infusion rates and methods. We have determined that the safest, most positive NAD+ experience is one that mitigates side effects such as a racing heart, nausea, and anxiety. There is simply no need to experience discomfort during your treatment.

    Who administers the NAD+ IV treatment?

    Just like our Vitamin IV therapy treatments, PureDropIV sends a BSN educated Registered Nurse to administer your NAD+ IV therapy treatment. Once our nurses have a firm grasp on the process of providing in-home Vitamin IV therapy, they will sit through a one-on-one, hands on and didactic training session to learn the ins and outs of providing you with the best NAD+ IV therapy experience possible. 

    How do I know if NAD+ is right for me?

    NAD+ IV therapy has generally been found to be safe for all adults. However, NAD+ IV therapy may interact with treatments for certain conditions or make those treatments less effective. PureDropIV aims to provide the safest care for all clients and will not provide NAD+ for:

    ·         Clients with a history of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, or arrhythmias

    ·         Clients with bipolar diagnoses or those taking anti-psychotic classes of medications

    ·         Clients who have been diagnosed with blood clots 

    ·         Clients currently receiving chemotherapy

    ·         Clients with MTHFR gene mutation

    If you ever have questions about whether or not NAD+ IV therapy is right for you, please feel free to reach out to our main line and we can connect you with our Clinical Operations team to discuss your NAD+ IV therapy treatment plan.

    How often can I get a NAD+ IV treatment?

    Everyone is different! You can receive NAD+ IV Therapy treatments on a weekly basis if desired. Many clients feel the effects of NAD+ IV therapy treatments for longer periods of time and will schedule their NAD+ IV therapy treatments on a monthly schedule. 

    How do I choose the right NAD+ dosage?

    It is recommended that clients start with 250mg of NAD+ until they understand how it affects their body. PureDropIV offers clients the option of increasing their NAD+ dosage in 50mg increments up to 500mg total. Once you have become accustomed to NAD+, you can slowly increase your dose over time to enhance your results. 

    What can I expect from a NAD+ IV treatment?

    NAD+ IV therapy take at least two and a half hours. We recommend being prepared with a blanket, snacks, a good movie, or some work to keep you occupied while your nurse monitors your heart rate and blood pressure and adjusts your drip rate as needed to keep you comfortable. 

    It is important to understand that NAD+ IV therapy stimulates the production of ATP, which is fuel source for cells. The side effects experienced with NAD+ IVinfusions may not be entirely preventable, but your nurse will do their best to ensure that any side effects are manageable. 

    What is the difference between NAD+ oral supplements and NAD+ IV Therapy?

    Just like oral vitamin supplements, NAD+ oral supplements must go through the digestive process before reaching your cells. Absorption rates vary from person to person and can fluctuate based on your current state of health. This means that NAD+ levels will take a longer time to reach the desired levels, and the results will be less noticeable.  

    Oral NAD+ supplements have become trendy and can be found all over the internet. As with all supplements, there is less rigorous oversight regarding the claims that companies make about what their product contains and can do for you. IV formulations of NAD+ are much more closely regulated and require adoctor’s signature to order. 

    What’s the difference between a NAD+ IV treatment and a Vitamin IV treatment?

    Vitamins are micronutrients that our body needs in order to function from day-to-day. A balanced intake of vitamins is necessary for energy production, cognitive function, immunity, growth and development. Vitamins must be taken in daily through the foods we eat, supplements, and the occasional Vitamin IV infusion. 

    Like vitamins, NAD+ also plays a role in energy production, cognitive function, immune health, etc.. However, NAD+ is naturally made by your body and acts as a direct fuel source for the cellular activities that repair and protect cells frombecoming damaged. Cellular damage is a normal, unavoidable part of the human life cycle. As we age NAD+ levels begin to drop which allows cells to become damaged more easily and stay damaged. It is at this point that the aging process manifests itself in aches, fatigue, and other degenerative symptoms. 

    Is there a recovery time required after a NAD+ IV treatment?

    There is no required recovery time, though some clients report feeling tired immediately after their treatment before their energy levels increase. Clients can resume normal activities after their NAD+ IV therapy treatment!

    Is NAD+ safe?

    NAD+ is still being studied for efficacy in the treatment and management of avariety of disease processes and for its role in slowing down the aging process and protecting cells from damage that leads to aging and disease. With that said, studies have shown that NAD+ IV therapy does not harm users and is considered very safe.
