NAD Therapy for Addiction
Reclaim your balance.
NAD IV THERAPY
NAD therapy has been used to assist those struggling with detoxing from opioids, alcohol, benzodiazepines, and other substances. NAD IV therapy helps replenish the cells with a vital coenzyme that supports every cell in your body with energy production and DNA repair.
What is NAD Therapy?
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) is utilized throughout the body in over 400 different physiological processes and is required by every living cell for survival. NAD+ can be used by the exchanging of energy to drive reactions forward, known as redox reactions. It can also be used as a signal molecule, in which the levels of NAD+ activate specific cellular processes and mechanism. Or NAD+ can be consumed by enzymes, such as the case with DNA repair.
NAD+ is synthesized and recycled throughout the day, but over time, the body is less effective at maintaining optimal levels. NAD+ is rapidly depleted through toxin exposure, including drugs
and alcohol, poor diet, lack of sleep, stress, inflammation, and naturally declines as we age. When DNA damage occurs, such in the case of alcohol or drug abuse, the PARP enzyme consumes NAD+ to repair strands of DNA. With excessive DNA damage, too much NAD+ is consumed by the PARP enzymes, which leads to cell death.
Supplementing with NAD+ is difficult because it is not readily absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract. Supplement companies have invested millions of
dollars in research in the precursors to NAD+ that can be taken orally. While Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) and Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) are effective precursors at raising cellular levels of NAD+, this type of supplementation does not produce the same clinical results observed with the intravenous treatment of the molecule itself.
