The answers to NAD+ Infusion Therapy FAQs:
1) What is NAD+?
NAD+ is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It’s responsible for transferring electrons and hydrogen in the Krebs cycle, making it a vital component for producing all of the energy your body uses. It’s involved in over 100 metabolic processes, and is considered one of the most essential building blocks for life. Unfortunately, NAD+ levels decrease as you age and in response to psychological illnesses. This negatively impacts your health in many ways. Boosting your NAD+ can help restore your natural and healthy levels, enhancing your physical and mental wellbeing.
2) How are NAD+ infusions different from NAD+ supplements?
Raising your NAD+ levels through supplements isn’t as effective as through an infusion. Digestion is a problem for NAD+, because the substance is hard for the stomach to break down, making it less bioavailable. By bypassing the intestinal tract, the body is able to fully take in and utilize the NAD+ being administered. Infusions are especially recommended for those trying to have a more comfortable aging process, who are planning to detox, or who suffer from mental illnesses.
3) What can NAD+ infusion therapy help treat?
NAD+ infusion therapy promotes healthier aging and can help several mental illnesses, including substance abuse disorders, mood disorders, anxiety, and PTSD. It can also treat Lyme disease due to its ability to aid enzymatic functions.
4) How does NAD+ help with aging?
Restorative processes depend on NAD+, and shortages can cause problems such as metabolic decline, cognitive issues, and a lowered immune system. An NAD+ infusion helps counteract this, preventing issues before they arise. It also helps protect your neurons against the effects of neurodegenerative diseases.
5) How does NAD+ help with mental illnesses?
NAD+ is necessary for optimal mental health and recovery. NAD+ protects your neurons from damage, and improves your cognitive function and mental clarity. It also combats stress, fatigue, exhaustion, and a lack of motivation.
NAD+ is especially helpful for those with a substance abuse disorder, because it can decrease cravings and discomfort during the detox process.
6) Is NAD+ Infusion Therapy safe?
NAD+ infusion therapy is a completely safe treatment option. It’s a natural substance used in the body and is readily incorporated.
7) Do you need a referral?
We highly recommend that you consult with our psychiatrist, although a referral is only required if you are seeking treatment for substance abuse.
8) Can I eat and/or drink prior to my infusion?
You can eat and drink before your infusion, although eating junk food is not recommended.
9) Are there any possible side effects?
During the infusion, NAD+ can cause side effects such as nausea, brain fog, cramping, and muscle fatigue. However, these can often be relieved through slowing the IV drip.
10) What is the recommended course?
We recommend that you undergo infusions daily for 4 to 10 days, depending on your state of health. We will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.
11) Can I drive home afterward?
Yes. There aren’t any lasting amnesiac or psychoactive effects of the infusion, so it’s safe to drive home afterward.
