NAD+ Q & A

NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) exists naturally in all your cells. You need NAD+ for cell function and health, particularly the mitochondria that produce around 90% of the chemical energy your cells need.

Cells contain plenty of NAD+ when you’re young, explaining children’s seemingly endless energy reserves. However, as you age, the quantity of NAD+ in your cells falls, and the mitochondria can’t function so effectively.

The result is a drop in your energy levels and an acceleration of the aging process. Studies into this area indicate that poorly functioning mitochondria could be a factor in the development of Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, diabetes, and other serious conditions.

There are supplements you can buy to boost your levels of NAD+. These contain a form of vitamin B3 called nicotinamide riboside, which your body can convert into NAD+. However, as with all dietary supplements, you lose a lot of the key ingredients as they pass through your gastrointestinal system.

The answer is to use an intravenous (IV) infusion instead, which delivers NAD+ directly into your bloodstream. By avoiding your digestive system, the IV infusion allows you to absorb the full dose of NAD+ for optimal benefits. At Sedona Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Lanchbury offers Brain Refuel Therapy™ infusions, which contain NAD+ with amino acids and B vitamins.

Some of the conditions Dr. Lanchbury treats with NAD+ include:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Addictions to alcohol, opiates, and other drugs
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)

NAD+ also has anti-aging properties, helps optimize performance, and supports autophagy – the natural clearing out of anything damaged or unused in cells.

What does NAD+ IV therapy involve?

NAD+ IV therapy is much the same as relaxing at a spa. You sit in a comfortable chair in pleasant surroundings, and once the IV needle is in your arm, you feel no discomfort. The needle connects to a slim tube called a cannula that delivers the NAD+ infusion into your vein over about an hour. All you do is lie back and wait.

While you can’t leave your chair during your NAD+ infusion, you’re free to do whatever else you feel like, from having a nap to reading a book or using your mobile device to browse the web. When the infusion is complete, you can go about your day as normal.
