Research in aging and longevity has recently gained intense interest from the media, the public and scientists all looking to extend the human lifespan. With a focus on keeping the body young, we’re learning how to not only delay age-related conditions such as osteoporosis, obesity, and various chronic inflammatory diseases, but to actually reverse aspects of them. The goal is to not only extend human lifespan, but to keep us young and healthy.
Mitochondria is vital to human survival and is found in nearly all of our cells. Essential to mitochondrial function, Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a prime cofactor, central to metabolism and necessary for all humans to survive. Vitamin B3 is also critical for the role it plays in the body’s metabolism, specifically because vitamin B3 is a precursor to NAD+. As we age, mitochondria begin to decay and NAD+ levels decrease. Studies show NAD+ levels decrease by about 40% for individuals over the age of 60. Other causes of diminishing NAD+ levels include environmental exposure to atmospheric pollutants commonly associated with oil, cigarette smoke, automobile exhaust, and Ultraviolet (UV) rays that damage the DNA. Restoring NAD+ levels can dramatically improve these age-associated functional defects, counteracting many diseases of aging, including neurodegenerative diseases.
NAD+ IV Therapy can help slow the effects of aging, repair damaged cells, fight addiction, and recover from brain injury. Many diseases and disorders, including but not limited to chronic fatigue, Lyme Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, addiction, neurodegenerative disorders, PTSD, traumatic brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis, anxiety & depression, Alzheimer’s Disease, and fibromyalgia, can be improved with NAD+ IV therapy.
