Benefits of NAD+

After a certain age, not many of us look forward to our next birthday with the same level of enthusiasm we once did. Of course, there are many aspects of getting older that are beautiful—the memories we accumulate and even those smile lines that prove we've really lived and laughed—but if there were a switch we could flip to slow down the aging process then we'd probably all flip it in a heartbeat.

Have you ever asked yourself a question - what if we could truly turn back time and heal our cells from within?

The good news is - there is something scientists have identified that may be the key—or at least part of it—to keeping our mind and body more youthful and potentially boosting longevity.

It's a coenzyme called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), and it's starting to generate some buzz.

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is present in almost all cells of our body. It is a metabolic co-enzyme that structures, repairs, and plays an essential role in energy production. As we grow older, certain genes get triggered and accelerate degenerative aging processes. This can result in symptoms such as chronic fatigue, loss of mental clarity, depression, stress, anxiety, and various other chronic illnesses. NAD is critical and every cell in our body needs it. This coenzyme is heavily involved in DNA and cell repair, responsible for turning off those genes that accelerate aging, and essential for maintaining neurotransmitter levels for proper functioning of the brain.

Astonishing benefits of NAD+ include but are not limited to:

  • Supports cellular energy production and kicks metabolism - NAD is important in the conversion of food into cellular fuel. Food must be digested down to its smallest metabolic components – sugars, fats, and amino acids. These metabolic components are then used by the mitochondria in our cells to make ATP – cellular fuel. Research suggests that increased levels of NAD+ help boost metabolism and prevent weight gain.

  • Helps Fight Against Cancer - Increased NAD+ levels can help protect against DNA damage, oxidative damage, and tumor progression.

  • Protects the brain - Increasing NAD in the brain cells and nerves stimulates enzymes that support cognitive function and neuroplasticity – the ability of our brain cells to learn and adapt to their environment. It is also vital to DNA repair and resistance to neuronal stress. Due to this fact, NAD+ may help improve memory and prevent Alzheimer's disease

  • Supports normal liver function - One of the most metabolically active types of cells in the body are liver cells. Liver cells are constantly metabolizing the substances we make in our bodies, like hormones and neurotransmitters. Increased levels of NAD+ support these essential cells and reduce the potential for fat to deposit in the liver.

  • Increases longevity - Studies have found that replenishing levels of NAD+ slow the usual ravages of aging and lengthen the life span by improving mitochondrial function. Also, NAD+ increases the activation of SIRT6, which helps maintain the length of telomeres—the end caps on DNA that are associated with longevity.

  • Helps with addictions - NAD is a holistic alternative to medication-based solutions for individuals undergoing addiction and recovery treatment. NAD is especially useful for patients who want to avoid the side effects of medications. NAD detoxifies the body, reduces withdrawal symptoms by binding to opiate receptors, which can help individuals overcome cravings and risk of relapse. At the same time, this powerful coenzyme naturally protects the brain and accelerates recovery.

In other words, benefits of NAD IV Therapy for Addiction and Recovery include:

  • Fewer withdrawal symptoms

  • Reduced cravings associated with withdrawal

  • Restored energy levels

  • Improved mood

  • Improved brain function

  • Improved cognitive clarity

It must also be stated that this isn’t a miraculous cure. While NAD+ has been seen to greatly reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and opioids, it still can’t do the work alone. Only with a combination of NAD+ and regular therapy and support can someone stay on the path of recovery.

Again, while this treatment may seem miraculous, you can’t count on it to be your one-and-done cure. True recovery can only be achieved by getting to the root of the problem and working at it every day.

While NAD+ could be a strong beginning, it is just that - a beginning, although, it is considered the closest we’ve gotten to a fountain of youth.

According to research, the age-related decrease in NAD+ causes defects in both energy- and gene-related functions to accumulate. The consequences of a decline in NAD+ levels and subsequent reduction in SIRT 1 and SIRT 3 enzymes include:

  • Neurodegeneration in the brain

  • Vascular inflammation, producing damage to blood vessels that can result in stroke or heart attack

  • Increased fat storage in the liver, which can lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

  • Increased fat production and deposition in white adipose tissue, the primary fat storage form found in dangerous belly fat

  • Insulin resistance, preventing cells from appropriately removing glucose from blood, producing higher blood sugar levels and leading directly to metabolic syndrome

  • Fatigue, loss of muscle strength, and fatty infiltration of muscles resulting in reduced fatty acid oxidation (“burning”), thereby depriving muscles of their normal sources of energy

We are happy to announce that we are introducing a new drip - NAD+

We are offering two protocols :

250 mg of NAD+ - 2.5 hour drip

500 mg of NAD+ - 4.5-5 hour drip.

​Prior to introducing NAD+ as a treatment at Rejuvii, I tried it for myself to see what all the fuss was about.

After the IV drip was completed, I started to notice subtle changes - brain fog related to lack of sleep was completely gone and my vision got very sharp. I was calm and experienced a sense of well-being. The next day I went to the gym and spent 2 hours getting a great workout. There was a definite improvement in energy levels, focus, and mindset. This continued throughout the rest of the day, and then for the following ten days. Today is day 11 and I am still going!!!

We believe that it is very important to emphasize that no single supplement is magic.

However, NAD+ promotes optimal metabolic function and cellular energy production, mitochondrial activity, and a normal inflammatory response. These cellular functions can help us age well, exercise better, maintain normal metabolism and detoxification, and help us stay clear-headed.

Please call us at 224-372-3747 with any questions and to make an appointment for your first drip.
