What is NAD+ and Why is it So Popular?

What if there was an enzyme that the human body produced that could help with energy production, mood improvement, and pain reduction, all while reducing the signs of aging?

 The excellent news is that NAD+ is a miracle enzyme researchers have harnessed in an IV infusion to help with many essential body functions. It's all the rage right now in the medical community because of all its benefits on the body.

At Delmarva Pain and Spine Center, Dr. Shachi Patel offers IV vitamin infusions containing NAD+ among other essential nutrients to relieve pain from migraines, help address allergies and asthma, and provide a general sense of well-being.

The facts on NAD+

NAD+ is an essential enzyme in the body that regulates various cell functions in the body. NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and is present in all living cells in the human body.

NAD+ is necessary for many body functions and cellular processes, including metabolism, immune health, and DNA repair. Practitioners also use it to slow the signs of aging, boost energy levels, and improve mental health.

As you age, your body begins producing less NAD+, which researchers have associated with certain types of cancer, nerve degeneration, signs of aging, and some metabolic disorders.

Addiction problems are also prevalent and may be due to low levels of NAD+. Some practitioners use NAD+ supplements to help people recover from a drug or alcohol addiction.

If you're feeling the effects of low NAD+, such as chronic fatigue, brain fog, and low energy levels, you should look into NAD+ supplementation through IV vitamin infusions.

Benefits of NAD+

NAD+ is essential for the body and causes significant symptoms at low levels. Dr. Patel evaluates your symptoms to determine if NAD+ therapy suits you.

The benefits of NAD+ are numerous and include the following health advantages through a single IV vitamin infusion:

Boosts energy

NAD+ is essential in producing many other elements in the body, including ATP, which is critical for energy production. When the production of NAD+ slows, so does the production of ATP.

An IV infusion of NAD+ helps boost energy levels by increasing the production of ATP throughout the body, which enables you to maintain a healthy weight and increases metabolism.

Reduces pain

One of the biggest reasons NAD+ is so popular is its ability to reduce pain without the need for addictive opioid drugs. NAD+ is pivotal in pain management because it reduces inflammation throughout the body, the main culprit behind pain.

It's an excellent pain management tool, especially for people living with chronic pain who don't want to deal with the potentially addictive properties of certain pain management drugs.

Improves mood

Another way NAD+ works in the body is by boosting serotonin levels in the brain. Low levels of serotonin cause problems like depression and anxiety, both of which affect your mood.

NAD+ supplementation helps the body produce more serotonin, which aids in mood improvement and reduction in depression symptoms.

Helps with weight management

If you're struggling with weight problems and can't seem to lose excess fat, NAD+ supplementation helps by increasing your metabolism through ATP production and acts as an energy booster.

How do I get NAD+?

Delmarva Pain and Spine Center offers NAD+ as an IV vitamin infusion. Dr. Patel discusses your needs and goals related to your health to determine what other ingredients to add to the mix.

An IV vitamin infusion is a fast and effective way to get essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream without sacrificing vitamins and minerals to your GI tract, where they're usually lost.

For an infusion of NAD+, we take you to a treatment room where you sit comfortably in a chair for the duration of the infusion. We then start an intravenous line (IV) in your arm, which we attach to tubing and a bag filled with saline, NAD+, and other nutrients.

The infusion takes anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour to complete the infusion. During the treatment, we monitor your vital signs to ensure you're safe and your body handles the fluid appropriately.

After the IV vitamin infusion, we remove the IV line from your arm, and you're free to go about your normal activities. The vitamins and nutrients go into your bloodstream, meaning you'll feel the results soon after the treatment.

Very few side effects or risks are associated with an IV vitamin infusion, making it ideal to get vital nutrients into your body for anti-aging, pain management, and an energy boost.

If you're ready to explore your options with IV therapy and NAD+, don't hesitate to call our office in Newark, Delaware, today at 302-355-0900 or request a consultation on the website.
