Are There Any Side Effects Of NAD Therapy?

NAD Therapy is a simple and natural therapy that uses an IV to deliver the oxidized form of a coenzyme called Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) directly into the bloodstream. Before exploring the side effects of NAD therapy and its benefits, let’s take a moment to dive into how this type of therapy works.

How does NAD IV treatment work?

NAD is a naturally occurring coenzyme of niacin that helps our cells produce energy by converting the energy we get from food into usable cellular energy. The coenzyme is dripped into the bloodstream during IV therapy.

Infusing these nutrients directly into the blood allows for optimized absorption, making it more effective than oral supplements. Infusion allows the liquid to bypass the stomach and travel straight to the cells that need it most.

What are the side effects of NAD therapy?

Before receiving any type of IV or injection therapy, it’s essential to understand what side effects accompany the many benefits.

While safe for most patients, the most common side effects include:

  • Nausea
  • Brain fog
  • Cramping during therapy
  • Redness, tenderness, or swelling at the injection site
  • Bruising at the injection site
  • Infection at the injection site (rare)
  • Phlebitis (rare)

If a patient experiences these side effects, the IV drip can be slowed, alleviating these adverse side effects.

Overall, NAD Therapy is viewed as a safe and effective therapy due to the naturally occurring NAD that exists in the body. When NAD Therapy is dosed and monitored by a medical professional, the risk to the patient is extremely low.

What are the benefits of NAD therapy?

NAD Therapy has many benefits that can positively impact the recipient’s health and wellbeing by increasing the naturally occurring coenzyme that naturally exists in the body.

There are two main areas that NAD Therapy is commonly used:

  • For aiding in health and wellness efforts to boost energy, improve cognitive function, and fight the impacts of aging.
  • To help in recovering from addiction by managing withdrawal and cravings.

NAD Therapy increases the number of sirtuins. This naturally occurring protein helps strengthen cells’ resistance to stress, which slows the process of cognitive decline. This aids in mental clarity, concentration, and neurological function.

NAD Therapy also aids in weight management and the fight against early signs of aging, both psychological and physical. One of the most significant benefits of NAD Therapy is its ability to impact both the physical and mental signs of aging, allowing for both internal and external results.

NAD for addiction recovery

In addition to the benefits mentioned above, NAD Therapy can also play an essential role in fighting and ending addiction. The abuse of drugs and alcohol naturally depletes the body’s natural stores of NAD, preventing the brain from receiving what it usually would from the breakdown of food.

NAD can aid in this issue in a variety of ways.
First, the therapy will help flush out the drugs that are still present in the body.
It can also mitigate withdrawal symptoms which are often the cause of relapse for those with addiction.
Finally, it can help the body produce more natural energy, curbing cravings for drugs, providing a form of non-jittery, non-caffeine-induced natural energy.

NAD Therapy is thus a natural and safe alternative for those looking to end their cycle of addiction.
