06 Oct What is NAD+ Therapy and How Does it Support the Body?
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, or NAD+, is a coenzyme that is found in every cell of your body – you cannot live without it! This is why Vida-Flo is proud to offer NAD+ treatment, to not only help combat deficiencies but maintain natural levels. Today we’ll be answering the question, “What is NAD+ therapy”, as well as how it supports the body, and the benefits of our NAD+ treatment. Plus, we’ll explain who exactly will benefit from his treatment!
What is NAD+ Therapy?
Let’s start by determining exactly what NAD+ is. NAD+ is essential for cell metabolism – the production of energy by the mitochondria in the cell that allows the specific cell to perform its role and the energy that drives your body. As NAD+ levels lower, you may therefore experience increased signs of aging and higher stress levels. If you have a deficiency, you are at a higher risk for chronic diseases, vision loss, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. However, there are ways to increase your NAD+ levels naturally. Including exercise, experiencing heat (such as from a sauna, hot tub, or hot shower), and specific changes to your diet. Unfortunately, an increase in age may limit these options’ effectiveness, leaving NAD+ treatment to be the best alternative.
Benefits of NAD+
So what are the benefits of NAD+ treatment? Here are some of them:
- Promotes healthy aging by activating enzymes. Specifically, a group of enzymes that improve overall health and lifespan, lower stress, repair damaged DNA, and lower inflammation. As well as enzymes that repair damaged DNA and help you live longer.
- Brain cell protection! NAD+ helps produce a protein called PGC-1-alpha within your brain, which protects brain cells from the damaged functions of the mitochondria and oxidative stress. Lessening your risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
- Reduce your risk of heart disease. As we age, our bodily functions start to decline. For instance, our blood vessels get stiffer and thicker as our blood pressure rises. As a result, our heart has to work harder. However, NAD+ helps reverse these consequences of aging.
- Weight loss! NAD+ has been shown to boost metabolism.
- Lower risk for cancer. NAD+ protects your body from oxidative stress and DNA damage, both causes of cancer.
- Reduce jet lag. NAD+ can help regulate your internal clock, benefitting those who live a jet-setter lifestyle.
- Support aging of healthy muscles. High levels of NAD+ have been shown to assist with endurance, strength, and overall muscle function.
