What Is NAD+?
NAD+ is a necessary ingredient to life, especially to a healthy, balanced life. NAD+, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells, and it’s required for the fundamental biological processes that make life possible. Your body already makes and maintains NAD+ in various ways, specifically by converting food in your diet to NAD+. But since NAD+ levels decline with the aging process, it’s important to understand that you can increase your levels in other ways, too.
Studies Behind NAD+
Two human studies, showed the link between NAD+ decline and age in human skin and the human brain, respectively. NAD+ is important for metabolism as well as DNA repair. NAD+ is hard at work in the cells of humans and other mammals, yeast and bacteria, even plants. Nothing can live without NAD+, and low levels are often accompanied by negative health consequences. Recent studies found that treating mice with NAD+ supplementation showed improved cognitive function, even pointing to signs of therapeutic potential for Alzheimer’s disease.
What Does NAD+ IV Therapy Do?
NAD+ is a coenzyme or “helper” molecule, binding to other enzymes to help generate reactions on the molecular level that produce positive outcomes in everyday health. NAD+ has two general sets of reactions in the human body: helping turn nutrients into energy as a key player in metabolism and working as a helper molecule for proteins that regulate other biological activity. But unfortunately, living things do not have an endless supply of NAD+. The level actually declines with age.
The history of NAD+ research, and its recent establishment in the science of aging, has opened the floodgates for scientists to investigate how humans can maintain their NAD+ levels and get more of it.

How Does NAD+ IV Therapy Work For My Body?
Here’s what you need to know about how the body makes and maintains NAD+. Diet alone is not enough to keep levels steady as you age. NAD+ supplementation is increasingly being used to treat energy loss, drug therapy, and boosting thought processing. NAD+ is utilized as a wellness therapy and is infused through an IV (Intravenous) or sometimes as a patch. It is not usually effective as an oral dosage due to the stomach acids negating the effects. It rarely can survive the digestion process.
