What is NAD + for Anti Ageing?

What is NAD + for Anti Ageing?

NAD, short for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It plays a key role in energy production and DNA repair.

It restores energy, improves athletic performance, aids mental clarity, helps cure cravings and could even aid in alleviating depressive episodes.

However, as we age, our levels of NAD decline, which can affect our health and longevity.

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?

When it comes to anti aging, most people think of creams and surgeries. But NAD works at a deeper level. Traditional treatments focus on the surface, improving skin appearance temporarily.

NAD, on the other hand, works within our cells. It helps repair DNA, boosts energy production, and supports overall cellular health.

NAD treatments are unique because they tackle aging at the cellular level. This means they can have longer-lasting and more profound effects.

Instead of just masking the signs of aging, NAD helps address the root causes. It rejuvenates cells, supports metabolic processes, and enhances brain function.

What influences your own NAD+ levels?

Several factors can deplete NAD levels. Aging is the primary factor, but lifestyle choices also play a significant role. Stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and excessive alcohol consumption can all reduce NAD levels.

To maintain or boost NAD levels, consider these lifestyle changes:

  • Healthy Diet: Eat foods rich in NAD precursors, such as vitamin B3 (niacin) found in fish, chicken, and whole grains.
  • Exercise Regularly: Physical activity has been shown to increase NAD levels. Aim for a mix of aerobic and resistance training.
  • Reduce Stress: Practice stress-management techniques like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises.
  • Moderate Alcohol Consumption: Limit alcohol intake as it can deplete NAD levels.

5+ Benefits of NAD for Anti-Aging

1. Boosts Energy Levels

NAD enhances cellular energy production by supporting mitochondria, the powerhouse of cells. This boost in energy can help you feel more vibrant and active. Studies and anecdotal evidence suggest increased stamina and reduced fatigue.

2. Improves Cognitive Function

NAD plays a critical role in brain health. It helps improve memory, mental clarity, and overall cognitive function. Users often report better focus and sharper thinking after boosting their NAD levels.

3. Supports Skin Health

NAD impacts skin health by improving elasticity and reducing signs of aging. Users notice smoother, more youthful skin. This benefit is due to NAD’s role in repairing DNA and supporting cellular health.

4. Enhances Metabolism

NAD aids in metabolic processes, helping with weight management and energy production. By supporting a healthy metabolism, NAD can help you maintain a healthy weight and feel more energetic.

5. Promotes Healthy Aging

Overall, NAD supports healthy aging by maintaining cellular health and function. It helps protect against age-related decline and can potentially increase lifespan. The long-term benefits include improved vitality and longevity.

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.

Ideal candidates include those looking to combat the effects of aging, improve energy levels, and enhance cognitive function.

  • Younger Adults: Can use NAD+ for prevention and maintenance of good health.
  • Middle-aged Adults: May see benefits in fighting early signs of aging and improving overall vitality.
  • Older Adults: Often experience increased energy, better cognitive function, and improved overall health with NAD+ treatments.

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.
