NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is an essential molecule found in every cell of our body; a coenzyme of vitamin B3 (niacin). NAD+ participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule and is basically the building block of a healthy body. Our internal organs, brain, and neurological systems need NAD+ to function at optimal efficiency.
NAD+ therapy involves a high-dose intravenous infusion of NAD+ that goes straight into the bloodstream. IV therapy allows NAD+ to bypass the digestive system for better absorption. NAD+ works rapidly to repair cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain.
When your NAD+ levels are increased, your cells produce more energy, your good genes are “turned on,” DNA is repaired, and many other functions are optimized. Since NAD+ is such a powerful and prolific molecule in the body, high-dose IV therapy can be helpful for many different conditions including:
Research of NAD+ also shows promise for therapy of sleep disorders and behavioral disorders such as autism.
At the end of treatment with NAD+ therapy, clients have generally reported the following benefits:
If you are experiencing any of the disorders mentioned above and they are interfering with your life and not responding to traditional treatments, then this revolutionary treatment may be right for you. Please note that some practices claim to provide NAD+ therapy, but it is of a much lesser quality than is provided at Initia Nova. We use only high quality NAD+ from Archway Apothecary, which has a purity of over 99%, whereas others often provide NAD+ of about 60% purity or less.
If you receive NAD+ elsewhere, make sure to ask for a certificate of analysis from the pharmacy. Dr. Sullivan received his NAD+ training and certification from the Springfield Wellness Center.
Scientists have shown that NAD+ significantly decreases as we age, so it’s beneficial to replenish NAD+ levels so our body can function at optimal levels. But our NAD+ levels also decline for many other reasons such as stress, chronic illness, depression, and addiction. Trying to heal and recover from these conditions can be aided by NAD+ therapy. See this article about NAD+ and aging from Harvard Rewinding the Clock. NAD+ is involved in these roles throughout the body:
When you are deficient in NAD+, your cells are not able to produce sufficient amounts of energy, which is needed to repair DNA and other essential regenerative processes. A significant increase in NAD+ levels helps to restore brain functionality and body performance.
As a result, patients have experienced increased clarity of mind, better problem-solving ability, improved focus, and concentration, increased energy, improvement in mood, decreased anxiety levels, and reduced cravings for alcohol and other substances. This revolutionary alternative treatment helps to heal brain-destroying diseases such as alcoholism, addiction, chronic stress, depression, anxiety, and some neurodegenerative diseases.
NAD+ therapy is included in some programs at Initia Nova such as our comprehensive depression, alcohol, opiate, and post-concussion headache programs. Additionally, NAD+ can be added to any program for $400 per 500 mg of NAD+.
