NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a critical coenzyme found in every cell in the body and plays a significant role in metabolic processes. NAD+ is involved in many bodily functions, including:
- Conversion of food (carbohydrates/protein/fats) to energy
- DNA repair
- Stress response
- Immune function
- Stem cell production
- Regulation of circadian rhythm (internal body clock)
Levels of NAD+ in the body naturally begin to decrease as you age. When this occurs, your health can be negatively affected in several ways. Heart disease, cognitive decline, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases have all been linked to declining levels of NAD+. Other issues that may arise due to low levels of NAD+ include:
- Premature aging
- Chronic fatigue/brain fog
When the body produces less NAD+, there are a few ways to jumpstart it. Exercise, dietary changes, and limiting sun exposure have all been shown to increase NAD+, but in many cases, levels of NAD+ in the body remain inadequate even after such lifestyle changes. When this happens, NAD+ infusions may be the right option. Administering NAD+ intravenously is a safe and effective method of optimizing NAD+ levels in the body. An NAD+ infusion activates anti-aging enzymes called sirtuins and encourages the favorable aspects of genes to come to the forefront. The result is that cells and neurons in the body are repaired, leading to improved health, reduced signs of aging, and alleviating common mood disorders.
Typical benefits of NAD+ infusions include:
- Increased energy
- Improved metabolism
- Decreased pain and inflammation
- Alleviation of addiction withdrawal symptoms
- DNA regeneration
- Mental clarity
- Reduction in signs of aging

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Since the body naturally produces NAD+, the FDA has not found it necessary to regulate NAD+ infusion therapy.
While most patients experience little to no side effects, some report mild side effects, including brain fog, nausea, cramping, fatigue, and abdominal pain flushing and chest pressure. Adverse side effects can usually be relieved by slowing the rate of infusion. Most people, over time, tolerate faster infusions the more they get.
Active cancer patients, pregnant women, and those with chronic or acute liver conditions should avoid NAD+ infusion therapy. Give us a call to discuss your situation before treatment.
Highly Effective Treatment
Ketamine infusions have proven to be highly effective at treating the major depressive disorder and can offer relief from emotional pain and hopelessness.
These ketamine infusions have shown to be effective in patients with treatment-resistant depression and failed other forms of psychiatric treatment and psychotherapy.
