What is an NAD Drip?

NAD IV therapy has been shown to be beneficial for those that are looking for relief from the multitude of changes associated with age, age-related diseases, nausea, PTSD and chronic fatigue. Celebrities like Joe Rogan can't stop talking about NAD drip IV therapy!

What is an NAD drip?

NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an essential cofactor and coenzyme that is present in almost every cell in your body. Its main purpose is to fuel your body’s metabolic cycles.

It is believed that NAD's functions are linked to the aging process and that a decline in NAD levels can be the reason our bodies age. NAD therapy replenishes the amount of NAD in the body, slowing down the aging process and providing your cells the materials they need to remain at optimal levels of functioning.

The stronger you can make your cells, the stronger your body is at all its functions, from your immune system, to your brain, to your metabolism.

What's the difference between NAD and NAD+?

NAD is the general name used to describe all types of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, NAD, NAD+ or NADH. Although, NAD+ or NADH scientifically describes the actual molecule under reference.

NAD+ is the oxidized form of NAD. During NAD IV therapy, NAD+ is administered because it  has catalytic properties. When it gets into the bloodstream, cells can immediately use this form of NAD to power their various processes.

How does NAD infusion therapy work?

NAD+ IV treatments supplement and restore the levels of this powerful coenzyme in your body.

At Drip IV,  we use a special solution containing a concentrated dose of NAD which is delivered directly into the bloodstream through an IV administered by our nursing personnel, making it available to your cells for immediate use. Because NAD bypasses the digestive and metabolic systems, you can expect a 100% absorption rate for maximum effect and minimal waste. 

The high dose of NAD+ quickly boosts your NAD levels, which in turn makes your mitochondria more efficient by giving you the increase in energy you need. Results typically last from 3 to 15 days, depending on where you are starting and what your end goals are.

What are the potential benefits of NAD IV therapy?

Known as the "helper molecule", NAD+ generates molecular reactions by binding to other enzymes in the body. NAD+ is involved in several biological processes that maintain our health and vitality.

NAD+ levels decline naturally as we age, and are also depleted by other factors such as toxins, malnutrition, lack of exercise, stress, inadequate sleep, alcohol, and smoking. NAD+ also has a close association with the circadian cycle.

NAD+ IV treatments offer the following benefits to your healthcare:

How to get NAD drip?

At Drip IV, we offer NAD+ therapy. Use our IV NAD+ Therapy to boost your metabolism, increase energy and productivity, to slow down the effects of aging, as an anti-inflammatory, and reverse neurodegenerative diseases and chronic illnesses.

While replacing depleted NAD+ through IV therapy can have great benefits, it does take time. If you're crunched for time but still want to experience the benefits of NAD+, we also offer subcutaneous injections. This may be the better option to fit your busy schedule. If you're interested in this option, give us a call for more information.
