What is NAD+?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD+ is a naturally occurring coenzyme that empowers your cells to convert food to energy. NAD+ is essential for brain functions and digestion and plays an important role in regulating the body’s ageing process and energy levels.

NAD+ increases the amount of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the body. Serotonin has wide implications that include:

– Cognition

– Memory

– Learning

– Reward centres of the brain

– Mood regulation

Insufficient serotonin levels can leave to mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. NAD+ IV therapy can help restore the balance and help improve emotions and thoughts that threaten your recovery from drug use disorders.

What is addiction?

Addiction is a disease in which a person regularly seeks out drugs such as alcohol, nicotine, opiates, or other illegal substances. People may believe they have control over their usage in the early stages, and usage may look like nothing out of the ordinary in some cases. However, larger doses may be needed overtime, and many people become reliant on drugs to feel normal.

Addictions can result in destructive habits and significant lifestyle changes and negatively impact personal relationships, friendships, and employment. Therefore, it is critical to overcoming addiction to thrive, and IV NAD therapy can help.

Other reasons the body’s natural reserve of NAD would be depleted.

Our body’s natural reserve of NAD can be depleted due to:

– Depression

– Anxiety

– Post-traumatic stress

– Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)

– Parkinson’s

– Alzheimer’s

– Ageing

– Neurodegenerative diseases

These co-occurring disorders can deplete one’s energy, but there are numerous ways to increase NAD levels, including exercise, vitamin-rich foods, fasting, protein, and raw foods.

How does NAD+ IV drip help in breaking the cycle of addiction?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme that our body produces naturally. Unfortunately, addiction and substance abuse can deplete your body’s NAD reserves. Restoring the body’s natural levels of NAD can help you feel better, promote cellular regeneration, and reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms during the addiction recovery process.

The benefits of this coenzyme are delivered directly into your bloodstream with IV NAD treatment. IV treatments, as opposed to oral supplements, which your body does not fully absorb, bypass your digestive system. Therefore, you can expect complete absorption for maximum effect and minimal waste.

NAD IV Therapy for Alcohol Addiction significantly reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with alcoholism, drug abuse, and dependency through natural brain restoration.

Why use NAD+ IV therapy to treat addiction

NAD Can Minimize the Symptoms of Withdrawal – NAD reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms by binding to the opiate receptors that drugs and alcohol activate to produce that ‘feel-good’ sensation. When NAD binds to these receptors, you experience less craving for that sensation, which aids in withdrawal. In addition, NAD+ IV treatments motivate you to go through various recovery programs that give you the tools you need to avoid relapse.

NAD IV Therapy Can Detoxify Your Body – Addiction takes a toll on the body, causing an abundance of free radicals (unpaired molecules that can cause cellular damage). By flushing out the free radicals and other toxins, NAD IV therapy can detoxify your body.

NAD Can Restore Neurological Function and Cognitive Clarity – The damage caused by substance abuse to your body does not go away overnight. Even after you have stopped using drugs and are on the road to recovery, your brain and body require time to heal. NAD can assist you by increasing your energy levels and detoxifying your body. Furthermore, NAD improves mental focus and cognitive function, allowing you to enjoy renewed mental clarity.
