What is NAD+? NAD+ is formed by the B vitamin niacin being joined with ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the messenger molecule inside cells. This complex molecular structure gives NAD+ some extraordinary properties, making it extremely useful in body processes ranging from turning the body’s nutrients into forms of energy, and working as a catalyst or helper molecule for other processes involving proteins in the body. It binds to other proteins, enabling cells to carry on various processes ranging from renewal and regeneration to other processes involving oxidation.
When we are young, our bodies have an abundance of NAD+, making cellular processes and transfer of energy a relatively smooth and effortless process. Research has established a clear link between the amount of NAD+ present in the human body and efficient metabolic processes as well as cellular respiration. As we age, the body’s supply of NAD+ decreases, making these intercellular exchanges and transfers of energy less efficient, until such a point as the cells begin to break down or develop abnormal behaviors. Many of the qualities we associate with aging are actually due to the body’s decreased supply of NAD+. In addition to aging, the body’s supply of NAD+ can be decreased by the following:
- Bad diet
- Lack of proper sleep and nutrition
- Diabetes and other metabolic disorders
IV Therapy through FastVitamin IV
In order to reverse the processes of cellular damage brought on by the decrease in NAD+ and to return the body’s metabolic rates and sleep patterns to normal levels, the basic molecular issues must be addressed. Of course it is possible to supplement the lack of energy and efficiency of the body’s metabolism with chemical stimulants, and you can take sleep aids that make you unconscious, but these chemicals do not address the fundamental issue of a lack of NAD+ in the body. If that issue is not addressed, these fixes remain simply temporary. This is where FastVitamin IV comes in.
In FastVitamin IV treatment, patients have their needs addressed by an infusion of a very large dose of vitamins or molecular compounds that result in the presence of an infusion of NAD+ in the body. With the balance of these catalysts restored, the body is quickly returned to a healthier condition on the molecular level. In a FastVitamin IV push, the amount of vitamins that are introduced into the body in a quick manner far exceeds the typical restorative IV, resulting in immediate positive effects and a restorative feeling for the patients, who often report a feeling that it has reversed the aging process. While there is no real fountain of youth, the reintroduction of NAD+ on the molecular level is the closest method that science has to correct this imbalance.
In Houston and the surrounding area, patients looking for NAD+ treatments to counteract the processes of aging should contact our representatives at (832) 460-6468 and set up a consultation, so that we here at Campbell Health Center can help restore your life to the full experience you wish it to be.
