NAD+ is an essential co-enzyme that is present in every cell of your body. In fact, life isn’t possible without the hundreds of functions nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) does to power your metabolism. Your body loses it's natural supplies of NAD+ as you age, and alcohol, drugs, disease, stress, and illness all contribute to decreased levels of NAD+. Since, NAD+ is crucial in the metabolic pathways responsible for energy metabolism and DNA function/repair, decreased levels are thought to contribute to the aging process and may lead to decreased energy, loss of muscle strength, and increased fat production and storage. Symptoms of neurodegeneration may include agitation, anxiety, apathy, forgetfulness, memory loss, mood changes and increased inflammation.

Why IV NAD+ Instead of Oral NAD+
Oral supplements may be easy to obtain and convenient to take, but do they offer enough bioavailability to achieve a therapeutic level in the body? Unfortunately not. Oral NAD+ supplements are degraded by the digestive system, and the amount actually absorbed by the GI tract is very low. Comparatively, IV NAD+ ensures 100% absorption because it bypasses the digestive system all together and goes directly into the bloodstream where it can be immediately used for cellular metabolism. An added benefit of getting an IV NAD+ treatment is that the liter of saline used to deliver the NAD+ helps to flush the system of toxins and effectively rehydrates the body.
What Does Harvard Medical School Have To Say About NAD+?
David A. Sinclair, Ph. D., A.O. is a Professor in the Department of Genetics and co-Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School. He is best known for his work on understanding why we age and how to slow its effects.
In this video, Professor Sinclair explains how he has identified the key cellular mechanisms behind vascular aging and its effects on muscle health. He describes how NMN acts as a precursor to increase levels of NAD+ in the body and how that plays a key role in the aging process.
Note: The NAD+ IV that we offer is exogenous NAD+ which has been shown in recent studies to be utilized by the body in the same way. (link to journal article)
Our natural NAD+ levels decline with age. Recent studies have shown that increasing NAD+ levels may actually slow or even reverse signs of aging and delay the progression of age-related diseases.
Substance abuse can radically reduce NAD+ levels in the body. Restoring NAD+ intravenously helps patients effectively detox from a variety of substances and helps to reduce cravings and pain of withdrawl.
Low NAD+ has been implicated in obesity & metabolic disorders such as diabetes. Increasing NAD+ has been shown to enhance metabolism and reduce fat gain when combined with diet & exercise.
NAD+ is essential for DNA repair that helps the brain to heal. Increasing NAD+ levels replenishes neurotransmitters , reverses feelings of anxiety and depression, and promotes a sense of calmness.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Kimberly, Thousand Oaks
I started the weight loss treatment with weekly injections and it has been amazing! I try to eat right and exercise but I was hitting a plateau. After taking weight loss treatments consistently I started to see a few more pounds drop off the scale. I would recommend this treatment!
Jon, Agoura Hills
Cari is so kind and has been a healthcare professional for many years. It’s so convenient to have her come directly to you rather than fight the sick crowds at the hospital. The care you will get is no different than if you were at a clinic but the convenience can’t be beat!
As an entrepreneur I'm under a lot of stress and have chronic insomnia. The NAD+ IV treatments have been a game changer! My energy has improved, my mind is a lot clearer and I've noticed I don't get sick as much as I used to. I love that I can get my treatment while I work in my office. Can't live without it now.
