Research from Harvard University has discovered that NAD+ levels decline as we age, this affects other mechanisms that our body relies on for optimal health including a class of enzymes called Sirtuins. Sirtuins play a vital role in the regulation of inflammation and DNA protection, which ultimately age the body. NAD+ can turn off and on the Sirtuin genes that are linked to pathologies of age-related disease.
NAD+ enhances our cell proliferation, making it one of the most potent anti-ageing molecules due to its ability to decrease the rate at which your telomeres shorten. Research on telomeres is extensive, showing their length plays a significant role in the rate of aging.
Energy production of the mitochondria (where ATP is produced) depends on NADH being recycled back to the active NAD+. If this recycling process is not efficient and NADH accumulates, the cells cannot produce the energy needed and will die. Health and energy production are directly correlated. If the mitochondrion of the cell is not functioning correctly you experience lack of energy reserves in the cell, if untreated this ultimately leads to disease.
Administering a high dose NAD+ straight to the bloodstream aids in a faster more effective outcome. The high dose optimizes your NAD levels, which revs up the energy engine in your cells.
HOW IS NAD DIFFERENT FROM TYPICAL TREATMENT OPTIONS:
- It is restorative. NAD+ helps your cells heal and helps with cellular biogenesis.
- It is protective. NAD+ has shown to be neuroprotective
- NAD+ increases production of ATP, which is the currency your cells use for energy.
Most people who experience NAD+ therapy express the following brain benefits:
- Increased concentration
- Improved memory
- Increased mental clarity
- Improved mood
WHAT INFLUENCES YOUR OWN NAD+ LEVELS?
- Alcohol consumption
- Over Nutrition (Obesity depressive effect on NADPH: key metabolite that resists reactive Oxygen): too much food ultimately causes inflammation to the cells.
- Sun and Oxygen damage
- Smoking and recreational drugs
- Changing Time zone (Circadian Rhythm disrupted) Part time shift workers and poor sleep
- Neurodegeneration: Brain depletion
- Heart Disease: Heart depletion
- Ageing: Liver depletion
WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM NAD+ INJECTIONS?
Anyone wanting to improve energy levels, concentration, memory, mental clarity, mood. As well as those wanting fight ageing on a cellular level for optimal health.
HOW DOES IT FEEL?
You may feel muscle weakness, lethargic and unsettled in the stomach. This can last up to 5 minutes and is just due to the high dose entering the cells. You will be guided through the process with one of our practitioners.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Four treatments are advised, one per week for four weeks. It is also advised to have maintenance sessions to maintain prolonged results.
