NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine di-nucleotide. It is a molecule found in every cell in the body. NAD is used to power metabolism by enabling the mitochondria – the ‘power stations’ of the cell to convert the food we eat into the energy our body needs to sustain all its functions. It is also required to “turn off” genes involved in accelerating aging processes. NAD helps maintain healthy mitochondrial function – an important component of healthy human aging. Research shows that as we age levels of NAD decline substantially. This decline leaves us at greater risk for neuro-muscular degeneration, declines in our cardio-metabolic health, and our capacity for cellular repair and resiliency.
The benefits of NAD are huge. NAD is an essential molecule that is widely found in the body. Its primary function is to help with the energy conversion process that takes place within the cell. It also works hard to repair damaged cells and reverse the effects of oxidation in the body, so declining levels of NAD have been identified as an important factor in the aging process. It binds to niacin (vitamin B3) to make it active so that it may be used by the body. NAD is needed for healthy brain function, energy production, and DNA repair.
NAD is a metabolic co-enzyme and is charged with the important job of structuring, repairing, and remodeling every cell in the body. These specialized enzymes require constant replenishment in the body. Unfortunately, drugs and alcohol prompt the human brain to reorganize, particularly on a cellular level. This process, known as neuroadaptation, is directly responsible for addiction-related brain damage and depletion of neurotransmitters. NAD IV therapy is said to replenish the drained enzymes and target brain restoration.
At Taylor Medical Group, our IV NAD therapy is combined with an amino acid cocktail that includes glutamine, tryptophan, and tyrosine to provide optimal nutrient repletion! At The Taylor Medical Group, we provide IV Vitamin therapy in a relaxing spa-like environment. Listen to tranquil music, recline in a massage chair, lie on a relaxing infrared detox bed, or watch your favorite movie during your IV wellness treatment. Your treatment will be provided by one of our doctors or nurses who will help you choose your perfect IV therapy or push.
