Learn more about the benefits of NAD+ therapy by reading below or contact our office today to schedule a consultation for your treatment.

What is NAD+ Therapy?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme in all living cells. It plays a vital role in energy production, DNA repair, and cellular health. It helps the body metabolize food into energy and regulates bodily functions like circadian rhythm. NAD+ is an essential component of all living organisms.

As we age, the amount of NAD+ produced by the body slowly decreases, which can impact normal body functions. NAD+ therapy delivers NAD+ directly into the bloodstream intravenously. This allows the body to absorb the NAD+ effectively and efficiently and utilize it immediately.

Our treatment infuses NAD+ into your bloodstream so it can reach every part of your body. Unlike oral supplements, an IV treatment skips the digestive system, and you do not have to wait to absorb it.

In addition to IV therapy, NAD+ is available as a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection. This gives a rapid boost of NAD+ without the need to wait for an IV treatment. Your provider may use this injection to bolster NAD+ IV therapy or alone.

Your body needs NAD+ to process your food, provide fuel for cells, and help start the DNA repair process. In addition, it helps control high blood pressure and improves your brain function. NAD+ can help treat the following conditions:

  • Drug and alcohol dependency
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Poor sleep
  • Depression/anxiety/PTSD
  • Cognitive issues
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Effects of chemotherapy
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Lyme disease
  • Early Parkinson’s/early Alzheimer’s
  • Effects of aging

What are the Benefits of NAD+ Therapy?

While other treatment options can provide the body with NAD+, many options are less effective because they do not deliver NAD+ directly to the bloodstream and will need to be absorbed and processed, reducing the amount of NAD+ you receive.

NAD+ therapy offers a variety of benefits for both your mind and your body, including:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved stamina
  • Enhanced cognitive function
  • Improved mental clarity
  • Anti-aging
  • Enhanced immune function

Who are the Best Candidates for NAD+ Therapy?

The best candidates for NAD+ therapy are those seeking to enhance their well-being, boost energy levels, and support their cognitive function. NAD+ therapy is also beneficial for those experiencing symptoms of aging, chronic fatigue, or seeking support in addiction recovery. The best way to determine if NAD+ therapy is a good choice for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lay at our office in San Jose, CA. Dr. Lay can review the treatment details and let you know if NAD+ therapy is right for you.

What’s the First Step?

The first step is contacting our office in San Jose, CA, where we can schedule an appointment for your NAD+ therapy. During your consultation, our team will review your medical history and ask about the issues you want to address through NAD+ therapy. From there, we can schedule your first treatment session.

Our team will provide instructions so that you are fully prepared on the day of your treatment. This will include avoiding drinking alcohol or caffeine the day before your appointment, as they can hinder the absorption of NAD+ into the bloodstream.

What to Expect from a NAD+ Therapy Treatment

Your NAD+ therapy session will be performed at our San Jose, CA office. Depending on the method you choose to use, this is what you can expect:

  • During IV therapy, a catheter will be inserted under your skin into a vein. You may feel a pinch while this happens. After the catheter has been placed, you should feel no discomfort from it.

    The ingredients of your NAD+ therapy are contained in a sterile saline solution. This solution infuses into your body over one to several hours, giving you time to absorb it and get the maximum benefit from it.

    The infusion process typically takes two to four hours to complete. During this time, you can relax, read, listen to music, or scroll through your phone. A team member will monitor you throughout the process to ensure everything goes smoothly.

  • A subcutaneous injection takes only about 15 minutes. Your provider can administer this in the arm, back, or side. You may feel a very small pinch.

Because NAD+ offers so many benefits, different people may see different results. You will experience a boost to your neurological functions, including memory and processing abilities. You will also benefit from more efficient energy transfer, letting your cells get the fuel they need.

NAD+ Therapy Recovery

NAD+ therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that typically does not require recovery. Most patients can resume their normal activities right away. In some cases, patients may experience mild side effects following their NAD+ therapy, including fatigue, headache, or nausea. These issues should clear up quickly.

Following your NAD+ therapy, staying hydrated and eating a healthy and nutritious meal is important. This will help your body recover properly and reduce your chance of experiencing any side effects.
