Let's Talk NAD+ Therapy

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.

Overview

  • NAD is a coenzyme in the body’s cells and plays an important role in converting nutrients from food into energy.
  • NAD levels have been tied to brain health, and studies suggest that they may play a role in conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, depression, and anxiety.
  • Research has shown that NAD may also help protect against age-related cognitive decline. This may be due to its ability to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain and nervous system.
  • IV NAD therapy can relieve oxidative stress, boost natural NAD production, and provide an immediate energy source for cells that have been lacking the fuel they need for optimal function.
  • NAD IV bypasses the digestive process with 100% absorption, thus providing much higher levels of NAD fast, efficiently, and effectively.
  • PureDropIV delivers in-home NAD IV treatments directly to you, by highly trained registered nurses to save you the hassle of transportation costs and time.

What is NAD?

NAD is a compound that plays an important role in metabolism and many other processes within the body. It contributes to cell replication, DNA synthesis, cell signaling and repair, and many other cellular activities. Because it performs at a cellular level, the larger impacts of NAD can be seen across numerous systems within the body.

Researchers have discovered that NAD levels directly impact brain function. Supplementation may even help fight neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and dementia. How does NAD affect brain function? The first step is to understand how NAD works. Its role in synthesizing DNA means that it’s essential for cell replication and repair. As we age, our NAD levels naturally decline, which in turn leads to more damage to cells and their DNA. Damage to cells and their DNA is not immediately harmful, but it is what aging scientists point to when explaining why the process of aging involves symptoms such as decreased cognitive function, a weakening musculoskeletal system, and even disease processes associated with aging such as diabetes, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases.

The Roles of NAD In Neurological Health

Research has shown that NAD is needed for a healthy nervous system. It’s believed that some of NAD’s most critical roles in neurology involve regulating neurotransmitters and protecting nerve cells from DNA damage. Neurotransmitters are special chemicals that transmit signals between cells, which is critical for nerve cell communication. Without adequate neurotransmitter levels, your brain can’t communicate effectively, leading to cognition and motor function issues. As an essential cofactor in creating and maintaining neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, NAD is necessary for healthy neurotransmitter levels. In addition to being essential for proper neurotransmitter production, NAD has also been shown to be involved in maintaining healthy DNA integrity of nerve cells. It’s thought that as we age, our NAD levels decrease, increasing our risk of developing age-related neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Supplementing with NAD precursors effectively replenishes your body’s stores of NAD and may help safeguard against these devastating diseases.

What Causes NAD levels to diminish?

Although NAD levels decrease naturally with age, there are many lifestyle factors that can decrease endogenous NAD production. Smoking tobacco products, chronic alcohol consumption, and drug abuse are some of the better known ways that healthy NAD production can be disrupted. There are also medical conditions and some medications that have been implicated in reduced NAD levels. Common diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease are being evaluated for their role in decreased NAD production.

Low levels of NAD may indicate that something is not working correctly in your body. However, it is important to note that most people with reduced levels are asymptomatic and do not experience debilitating symptoms related to their deficiency. At this time, NAD deficiency should be thought of more as a symptom of disease, and not necessarily a treatment for a disease. If you have a NAD deficiency, it’s important to be evaluated by your doctor and treated with appropriate therapies in order to maintain optimal health.

Recent studies have sought to find the link between a decrease in NAD and aging. As you get older, your body’s ability to produce NAD decreases. While we are still trying to figure out exactly why this happens, it is understood that factors such as oxidative stress and chronic inflammation play a heavy role in reducing the body’s overall efficiency, especially as it pertains to NAD production.

If you are concerned about having low levels of NAD, talk with your doctor about being tested for deficiency and treated appropriately. If you experience symptoms related to low levels of NAD, you must speak with your doctor to ensure that you receive treatment for any underlying conditions as well.

What Is NAD IV therapy?

This decline in coenzyme production leads to symptoms of aging such as fatigue and a loss of mental performance. In-home NAD IV therapy delivers a high dose of pure, certified organic coenzyme Q10 in an intravenous form helping cells return back to optimal levels. IV therapy is the fastest, safest, most effective and efficient way to supplement NAD into back into your body. NAD IV therapy is administered by a highly-trained PureDropIV registered nurse, and delivered directly into the bloodstream for your body’s cells to achieve 100% absorption (bioavailability) of the NAD supplement.

What’s Contained Within a NAD IV Treatment?

At PureDropIV, our registered nurses evaluate each client individually.. 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 (or more, up to 500mg) of NAD. During an initial or follow up appointment, PureDropIV nurses may make recommendations for increased dosage and advise of treatment regularity. Supplementation of IV NAD is a great way to improve cognitive function, and to 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 by unlocking unmatched focus and memory recall.

How Can NAD IV Therapy Improve Neurological Function & Brain Health?

NAD IV therapy is a great choice for anyone looking to improve overall mental focus and performance, or restore short-term memory to complete daily tasks with excellence.

Fight Brain Fog & Mental Fatigue

When you are trying to focus on a task, your brain requires energy. Energy is a vital resource for your brain to sustain extended periods of concentration. Without adequate metabolic energy in cells, your brain’s ability to function at optimal levels will suffer greatly.

Low levels of metabolic glycolysis can lead into ineffective ATP production in cells causing mental fatigue to activate quicker. With NAD IV therapy, you may experience an influx of metabolic energy that helps your brain cells operate better for longer.

Keep Mental Disease at Bay

The brain is a complex organ that begins to break down when cells cannot function properly due to lack of energy. The decline of this organ may contribute to the onset of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, which are both caused by cell death from neurodegeneration or lack-of metabolic energy needed for survival. By boosting NAD levels you can increase your metabolic capacity – which is crucial when trying to stave off mental decline!

Improve Memory

NAD IV therapy may help reverse the effects of aging by improving your ability to recall memories. NAD aids in the regeneration process of brain cells and the production of neurotransmitters, which key to retaining information. As we age, our bodies undergo natural changes that lead us towards a decline in cognitive function, making it difficult to recall memories due to cellular changes, burnout, and low energy levels.

Maintain Your Mental Edge

NAD has been shown to have a significant impact on aging by protecting brain cells from damage and premature cell death, which contributes to the aging process. By boosting NAD in our bodies we can potentially reverse or slow down aging’s adverse effects on us all together, giving you a mental sharpness to complete tasks requiring you to be at your best.

Minimize Dependence on Caffeine

NAD is a naturally occurring substance that helps your brain cells work more efficiently by increasing the amount of energy being converted into cellular power. NAD is different from caffeine or stimulants because it doesn’t block adenosine but rather increases the amount of energy being converted, giving your brain cells what they need to work at their best without the crash. NAD IV therapy may be the key to providing you with the mental momentum needed when it’s time to get things done!

How Does an At-Home NAD IV Therapy Appointment Work With PureDropIV?

PureDropIV’s Mobile Drip Team, comprised of highly-trained registered nurses, delivers NAD IV treatments directly to you when you request an appointment for service. Choose comfort and discretion over traffic, hassle, or inexperience by having a dedicated registered nurse arrive at a comfortable place of your choosing to educate and administer you with NAD IV therapy.

Once booked for NAD brain restoration IV treatment, A PureDropIV Mobile Drip Team nurse will arrive at the desired time of booking with all equipment necessary for administration. You’ll be asked to choose a location at your appointment where you’ll be comfortable sitting for 2-3 hours while your NAD dosage is being administered.

Before starting treatment, your nurse will provide an overview of your treatment plan, answer questions, make recommendations for dosage, and obtain vitals (blood pressure, pulse, temperature, etc). Once complete, your nurse will find a comfortable location to place an IV catheter then utilize a mobile IV pole to hang a 1000mL bag of IV fluids that will be an expertly primed IV line which will be connected to your IV catheter. The contents of the IV treatment will drip into your bloodstream by power of gravity for your body’s cells to use immediately.

Your nurse remain with you for the duration of your appointment to observe and monitor the flow of the IV’s contents. Only once the drip is complete, your nurse will dispose of all treatment contents, pack mobile equipment, and leave you to enjoy the benefits of your NAD brain health IV treatment.

FAQs

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.

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.
