Everyone experiences aging, but is there a way to slow the process down or stop it in its tracks? Anti-aging creams and other topical treatments can help resolve age-related changes on the surface, but is there any way to look and feel younger from the inside out?
NAD+ is an innovative wellness treatment that can help slow the aging process and resolve many common age-related changes. These include aesthetic concerns like wrinkles and medical issues like cognitive decline. Find out more about NAD+ treatment in this comprehensive guide to the process:
What Is NAD+ Treatment?
NAD stands for nicotinamide riboside, a coenzyme that plays a vital role in a number of bodily functions. It is found naturally in all of the cells of your body, but over time it can decrease in abundance. This contributes to the aging process that manifests both inwardly (brain fog, lack of energy, cognitive decline) and outwardly (wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin).
NAD+ is an intravenous treatment that replenishes the body’s NAD and stimulates an anti-aging effect. That effect can in turn promote cellular repair and cell turnover that helps you feel and look more youthful over time.
The Complete NAD+ Process
Are you interested in NAD+ therapy to reduce signs of aging? Before seeking treatment like this, you should always have a good understanding of how it works. The following is a breakdown of what you can expect before, during, and after your NAD+ treatment:
Prior to scheduling your first NAD+ session, you will need to have a consultation appointment with an expert health and wellness provider. We can assess your nutritional needs, presenting symptoms, and underlying conditions to determine what has led to your concerns.
If your symptoms are caused by the simple aging process, you may be a good candidate for NAD+ treatment. We will also discuss any other concerns you may have that can be resolved with IV drip therapy. Your NAD+ treatment will then be administered in conjunction with a unique IV hydration blend to meet all of your needs.
On the day of your NAD+ session, no real preparation is required. You should arrive at your appointment in soft, comfortable clothing. Many people choose to bring a book, tablet, or another hobby to occupy them while their treatment is administered.
When you arrive for your NAD+ treatment, you will be able to lay back comfortably in a reclined chair while we prepare all the materials for your session. A registered nurse will cleanse the inside of your arm with rubbing alcohol, gently guide your intravenous catheter into a vein in your arm, and tape it in place.
Once your catheter has been placed, your NAD+ infusion will begin. A tube on the catheter will be attached to a bag containing your blend of IV fluids and NAD+ solution. These fluids will vary for each patient based on their unique needs. During treatment, the solution will flow into your bloodstream, providing you with a rich content of nutrients combined with NAD.
In addition to NAD+ infusions, there is a simple NAD option that some wellness clinics offer. NAD injections may be used to provide an isolated dose of NAD that is injected into the arms, thighs, or buttocks. In some cases, the NAD may be injected directly into your bloodstream via a vein in the arm. This is a much faster procedure than NAD+ infusions, and it does not include IV nutrients.
When your NAD+ infusion is over, you will be free to return home and resume your normal activities. There is no recovery process or downtime required after NAD+ treatment. If you have NAD+ with IV fluids, you may actually feel more refreshed and revitalized when you leave your session.
To experience the optimal benefits of NAD treatment, you will need to have ongoing sessions. The exact number can be different for each person, but bi-weekly sessions are recommended after your initial round of treatment. This helps you maintain ongoing anti-aging benefits, allowing you to feel and look more youthful as time goes on.
