New research into aging is discovering ways to delay age-related conditions, prevent obesity and treat chronic inflammatory diseases that cause pain and dysfunction. Some of these treatments show promise in actually helping to reverse signs of aging, in turn helping us stay younger and healthier even as we live longer.
NAD+ IV therapy is one of the newest ways to fight the effects of aging. It works on a cellular level to improve your health and help you feel younger and more energetic. To understand how NAD+ IV therapy can help you, you need to understand how your cells change as you age.
The Role of Mitochondria in Aging
Mitochondria are organelles, small structures within almost every one of the cells in your body. Mitochondria power the many biochemical reactions our cells, and therefore our bodies, need to function correctly. Without properly working mitochondria, you may begin to have weaker muscles, weaker bones and less energy.
To work well, mitochondria need nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). They also need Vitamin B3, which affects metabolism and the ability to create NAD+.
As we age and mitochondria begin to decay, levels of NAD+ also decline. In addition to aging, environmental pollution can also lower NAD+ levels. Common elements of the environment that affect NAD+ levels include:
- Cigarette smoke
- Car exhaust
- UV rays
As your cells lose function due to age and environment, you’ll start to feel older, more tired and less strong than you were when you were young.
But if you restore NAD+ levels, mitochondria can work better, which helps counteract aging and its many effects on your health and wellbeing.
NAD+ IV Therapy
To help increase your levels of NAD+, you can undergo NAD+ IV therapy. During this therapy, you receive high levels of NAD+ intravenously (through a vein in your arm). Receiving NAD+ through an IV is more effective than ingesting it because it bypasses your digestive system. The NAD+ goes straight into your bloodstream, where it can be taken to cells all around your body.
NAD+ IV Therapy has numerous anti-aging benefits. Many patients have commonly reported:
- Better mood
- Reduced symptoms of depression
- More energy and less fatigue
- Improved cognition, memory and mental clarity
- Better hearing and eyesight
- Fewer cravings for unhealthy foods
- A better overall sense of wellbeing
At Fountain of You MD, we believe NAD+ IV therapy can do so much more to help slow the effects of aging. On a cellular level, it can repair damaged cells. Overall, we believe it can also help treat and alleviate symptoms of:
- Brain injuries
- Chronic fatigue
- Lyme disease
- Neurodegenerative disorders, such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
