When it comes to vitamin infusions, most people are familiar with their use in hospitals, immunity therapy, and maybe even know of the Myer’s Cocktail. But NAD and NAD+ are one of infusion-therapy’s best-kept secrets. Used to improve mental fog, boost energy levels, and improve overall mental cognition, people from all lifestyles can benefit from NAD and NAD+ therapy. From businessmen, parents, influencers, teachers, grandparents, doctors, athletes, and people in between, anyone looking to improve their mental performance will appreciate NAD and NAD+ infusion therapy.
But what is NAD and NAD+? Read below to find out more!
What Does NAD and NAD+ Mean?
NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, a co-enzyme vital to all living organisms. It plays major roles in DNA repair, metabolism, pain reduction, maintaining energy, and more.
NAD comes in two forms: active and inactive. The active form is NAD+, while the inactive form is NADH. While both are important to human function, NAD+, the active form, is what is used in infusion therapy.
NAD+ acts as a “helper molecule” due to it’s major role in various functions. It binds to other enzymes found in the human body and activates them, allowing different molecular reactions. A lot of enzymes require their “helper” counterparts in order to function. But, as humans age, the body’s NAD production gradually decreases. So the enzymes that need NAD don’t operate as smoothly as they used to. This is one of the reasons that older generations are more susceptible to illnesses and aging effects.
NAD and NAD+ infusions are a way to naturally supplement the body with NAD and NAD+, allowing the enzymes that need NAD to operate at tip-top shape.
Can I Take NAD and NAD+ Orally?
There are many ways that people can help their body’s NAD production. Exercising, time in natural light, eating foods like peanuts and fish, drinking milk, and seeking vitamin-B are all great ways to help your body’s NAD production and overall improve health. But if you’re looking for a NAD boost, there are also oral supplement options at almost all drugstores. However, while those oral supplements can be helpful, they’re generally not very effective. Only about 50% of vitamins ingested are actually absorbed due to all the breakdown that happens within the digestive tract. On the other hand, with infusion therapy, about 90% of the vitamins are absorbed since it’s delivered straight into the bloodstream. That’s a significant difference! Vitamin infusion therapy is the most effective way to boost NAD naturally and giving your body and mind a refresh.
Can NAD and NAD+ Therapy Help With Anxiety, Depression, And Mental Health?
While NAD and NAD+ isn’t guaranteed to help with mental health struggles such as anxiety, depression, and mood disorders, it can help. Because NAD and NAD+ infusions benefit mental sharpness, energy, metabolism, and more, many people who struggle with mental health and/or mental fog may find relief with NAD and NAD+ infusion therapy.
