NAD Infusions

NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It plays a multitude of roles in promoting health, reversing inflammation and ageing, and prolonging lifespan.

NAD is derived from vitamin B3 or niacin and is essential for cells to generate energy. It is critical for repairing and protecting DNA regulating gene expression, regulating the immune system and reducing inflammation. NAD is also essential in maintaining and “resuscitating” failing mitochondria. It is one of the most potent anti-ageing agents out there and best of all, it is completely natural.

Declining NAD levels is common as we age and is due to the inability of our cells to synthesize or recycle NAD effectively. Low NAD levels is associated with a multitude of chronic medical conditions.

When NAD is given intravenously, it restores the cellular energy system which in turn increases energy, relieves mood disturbances, and reduces pain, and helps with recovery from addiction.

NAD helps enzymes in our body convert food into energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Studies suggest that some people with chronic fatigue and related conditions have low levels of ATP.

Research also shows that NAD can stimulate brain function, thereby slowing the cognitive decline that is often associated with ageing and neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s disease, dementia and the like. It vastly improves brain fog, leading to increased mental clarity, memory, and concentration, and may help alleviate the cognitive dysfunction associated with these chronic conditions.

NAD reduces internal inflammation, reduces oxidative stress, boosts your metabolism and increases your energy levels. NAD may reduce fatigue associated with stress and chronic disease by restoring the function of the mitochondria (tiny powerhouses within cells). These chronic conditions are believed to involve mitochondrial dysfunction. As a result, it can have dramatic effects on chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, post-viral fatigue including long COVID, as well as auto-immune and other inflammatory disorders.

NAD is a great booster for anyone who leads an active, busy, and stressful life! Let’s face it, who these days, doesn’t? It enhances the endurance and performance of athletes and aids in the recovery post injury or following intense, strenuous, or prolonged exercise.

Personally, I have seen tremendous improvements in many of my patients with NAD therapy, in combination with other integrative approaches. It has helped me recover from debilitating fatigue, brain fog and insomnia, as well as long COVID.

NAD and Mental Health/Addiction

As you may well be aware, Australians and people around the world, seem to struggle significantly with mental health, especially anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Additionally, addiction and substance abuse, seem to be prevalent in the population and often have a tight grasp on some people, despite their intentions to change. This has a profound effect on the person involved, but also affects their loved ones significantly.

Research has shown that you are more prone to developing issues related to anxiety, depression, addiction, and other mental health issues when you have low levels of NAD. By having NAD as an infusion, it may help your brain create, activate, and replenish neurotransmitters (chemical messengers like serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline) that influence mood, stress tolerance and cognitive function. These are often depleted due to constant activation of the nervous system by stress and lifestyle demands. By improving neurotransmitter status, NAD treatment has a calming effect and can lead to improved mood, cognition, and concentration.

NAD improves detoxification and elimination of harmful substances from the body, thereby aiding in withdrawal from alcohol, opioids, other drugs (prescription or recreational) of abuse. Importantly, it also helps with the withdrawal symptoms often experienced when patients are trying to wean off antidepressant medications, but who are struggling with the nasty side-effects thereof. This can be done as repeated single infusions, but often in these situations, an intensive treatment regime is recommended.

I honestly cannot recommend NAD therapy strongly enough and the more I use it, the more I love it!
