What to know about NAD+
NAD+ is an active coenzyme that’s responsible for triggering chemical reactions in all your cells. These reactions play an essential role in regulating many of your biological processes, including mental function.
Two of the most important functions of NAD+ are the production of energy and the regulation of your body’s stress response.
NAD+ contributes to the conversion of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates from your diet into the energy you need to function. The coenzyme supports the production of energy to power your muscles and stimulate communication between cells.
NAD+ works with proteins to repair your DNA, increase stem cell production, and regulate your body’s response to environmental stressors. It also supports your circadian rhythm to help you fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night.
Consequences of declining NAD+
NAD+ occurs naturally in your body. However, as you get older, your levels of NAD+ begin to decline. In your 40s, you may no longer have the supply of NAD+ to keep up with the demands of your body. When you’re ill or develop a chronic disease, your supplies of NAD+ can dwindle even faster.
Low levels of NAD+ play a significant role in the development of mental health issues like anxiety and depression. You may also experience a serious lack of energy without a sufficient supply of the coenzyme.
When both your mental and physical health are suffering, it can be difficult to bounce back without expert medical care. Further complicating the matter is the difficulties you might experience when trying to get help for depression or anxiety due to the lack of energy and motivation the conditions can cause.
How NAD+ can restore mental health and clarity
Infusions of BR+NAD can quickly restore your NAD+ levels to ease symptoms of depression, PTSD, and anxiety. We use the highest quality formula to provide reliable and consistent results.
In general, therapy involves two 3 to 10-hour intravenous (IV) infusions of BR+NAD over the course of two consecutive days. This ensures you get the most benefit of treatment because the large amounts of NAD+ go directly into your bloodstream where your body’s tissues can start using the coenzyme immediately.
Following your initial therapy, we may also recommend small-dose maintenance therapy that involves injections of NAD+ under your skin or through a shorter IV-based treatment session.
Maintenance therapy helps your body maintain adequate NAD+ levels to support your mental and physical health. As your NAD+ levels increase, you can enjoy lasting relief of symptoms that interfere with your mental health.
