NAD+ IV therapy
NAD - The coveted Anti-Aging, energy regenerating nutrient!
What is NAD+?
NAD+ acts as an important cofactor and substrate for a multitude of
biological processes including energy production, DNA repair, gene expression, calcium dependent secondary messenger signalling and immunoregulatory roles. The de novos ynthesis of NAD+ is primarily dependent on the kynurenine pathway (KP), although NAD+ can also be recycled from nicotinic acid (NA), nicotinamide (NAM) and nicotinamide riboside (NR). NAD+ levels have been reported to decline during ageing and age-related diseases. Recent studies have shown that raising intracellular NAD+ levels represents a promising therapeutic strategy for age-associated degenerative diseases in general and to extend lifespan in small animal models.
Utility of NAD+ in post-concussive Therapy
Studies have shown that oxidative stress after a concussion depletes levels of NAD in the mitochondria of neurons leading to cell death. This damage can occur in the acute, subacute and chronic stages of a head injury. NAD has been shown to reduce oxidative stress, prevent damage to brain cells and reduce the risk of neuronal cell death by correcting mitochondrial metabolism. When the brain is depleted of NAD, the cells rely on alternative, more oxidative forms of energy production. By increasing the brain’s levels of NAD, the mitochondrial energy pathways are forced back into functional metabolism. These are all key factors which need correcting for post concussion treatment. The goal behind NAD therapy is to restore mitochondrial metabolism and decrease oxidative stress in the brain. By using higher doses of NAD, we can alter the brains energy metabolism to restore proper function after a traumatic brain injury. 1
Intravenous and intramuscular administrations of NAD+ can bypass the gut lining to get into every cell in your body as well as pass the blood brain barrier.
