What is NAD+?
Nicotinamide riboside, or niagen, is an alternative form of vitamin B3, also called niacin. Like other forms of vitamin B3, nicotinamide riboside is converted by your body into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme or helper molecule. It is promoted as an anti-aging supplement because it boosts your body’s levels of NAD+, which acts as fuel for many key biological processes. These processes include converting food into energy, repairing damaged DNA, fortifying cells’ defense systems, and setting your body’s internal clock.
Low NAD+ levels have been linked to health concerns like aging and chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and vision loss. Numerous studies have shown that NAD+ levels in the body decrease with aging and under disturbed nutrient conditions such as obesity. In addition, a decline in NAD+ levels is closely related to the development of various metabolic disorders, including diabetes and fatty liver disease.
What Are The Benefits of NAD+?
NAD+ IV Therapy holds many direct benefits such as aiding in addiction recovery, reducing pain, improving cognitive function, boosting energy, improving athletic performance, aiding in weight management, reversing the signs of aging, and delaying or preventing the onset of certain diseases.
NAD+ is not a cure for addiction; however it is a powerful tool that can aid in the recovery process by reducing withdrawal symptoms. By reducing symptoms and making withdrawal more tolerable, this helps patients transition into sobriety.
Sirtuins are protein molecules that can reduce inflammation, which in turn, alleviates pain. Sirtuins require the NAD+ coenzyme in order to operate correctly, this is how NAD+ helps the process of pain relief.
In addition to sirtuins alleviating pain, they also have the ability to improve cells’ resistance to stress and can slow the progression of cognitive decline. The NAD+ coenzyme along with sirtuins provide improved mental clarity, boosted memory, improved mood, facilitates brain regeneration, improves concentration, increases focus, and reduces symptoms of depression.
Adenosine triphosphate, also known as ATP, is the source of energy for our cells. ATP fuels cellular respiration, replication of DNA, and muscle contractions. NAD+ aids in the production of ATP; therefore it is boosting energy levels and reducing the feelings of tiredness. It is perfect for people recovering from jetlag.
NAD+ also plays a key role in the human body’s metabolic process. When NAD+ is used in conjunction with proper exercise and a healthy diet, it can help promote a healthy weight.
