Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme that your body naturally produces. This coenzyme plays a part in many systems throughout your body including your metabolism, your neurological function, your immune health, your cellular health, and your rate of aging.
The levels of NAD in your body can affect not only how quickly your cells age, but can reverse damage to your cells as well. Amounts of NAD in your body naturally decrease over time and can be further depleted due to stress and environmental factors. Lower levels of NAD can “…promote mitochondrial dysfunction…” and cause damage to DNA which can accumulate over time and develop into cell changes and mutations.
IV NAD treatments replenish low levels of this coenzyme by delivering a combination of saline solution and NAD directly into your bloodstream. This method bypasses your digestive system and ensures full absorption of the NAD, which immediately becomes available to your cells for use.
NAD and anti-aging are closely linked. As you age, telomeres – the caps of your chromosomes – become shorter and in turn contribute to cellular changes that result in physical signs of age. NAD increases the length of your telomeres by supplementing SIRT1, a protein that plays a role in maintaining healthy and stable cells.
NAD may also play a role in regulating neurodegenerative disease which can accompany age. Researchers are optimistic about the the possibility of improving long-term symptoms and outcomes of these diseases.
NAD influences the proteins SIRT1 and PARP 1, which are linked with a slower rate of aging and repairing DNA. Research suggests that “…enhancing NAD levels through supplementation with NAD intermediates… could prevent not only metabolic disorders but also other age-associated diseases…”, effectively preventing damage before it starts.
Restoring the levels of NAD in your body can repair and reverse cellular damage caused by aging, which contributes to maintaining the long-term health of your DNA. Less damage over time reduces your risk of developing many age-related conditions.
Because aging impacts every system in your body, NAD treatments for anti-aging can improve your whole-body health at the cellular level. NAD IV treatments can improve a wide variety of age-related changes, including:
IV NAD treatments are generally administered on a schedule over a set period for optimal results. Treatment regimens may last between 4 to 14 days depending on the individual. Our IV NAD treatments take 2 – 3 hours to administer per session.
Because of the duration of this treatment, IV NAD is ideal to have delivered directly to you. You can save a considerable amount of time and hassle when you don’t have to take time out of your busy schedule to make a trek across town multiple times a week. Concierge MD LA brings the appointment to you, saving you the time and hassle of sitting in traffic or exposure to illness in a clinic waiting room. You can work, watch your favorite show, or socialize during the appointment for minimal disruption to your day.
Anti-aging treatments are most effective when used consistently over time. Regular NAD IV treatments are an ideal part of a preventative health routine. NAD not only prevents age-related damage before it starts, it can correct existing damage and reverse damage at the cellular level, improving your whole-body health for optimal wellness.
Concierge MD LA offers a further time-saving service with over-the-phone prescription refills as needed. Our members enjoy the benefits of on-call telemedicine for answers to any health questions or concerns between appointments.
