What Is NAD+?
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) is a naturally occurring coenzyme found in every cell of your body and plays a critical role in regulating cellular metabolism and energy homeostasis. When NAD+ levels are optimal, cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain are rapidly repaired. But, research shows that as we age levels of NAD+ decline substantially. This decline leaves us at greater risk for neuro and muscular degeneration, it compromises our cardiometabolic health, and it compromises our capacity for cellular repair and resiliency. In short, declining levels of NAD+ compromises our cells’ ability to create energy, resulting in accelerated aging and an increased risk of disease.
How Does the Kaplan Center Use NAD+?
By replenishing cellular levels of NAD+ you can repair DNA, protect brain cells from damage, reduce inflammation, improve muscle recovery, and turn on enzymes that help prevent aging and help improve painful and debilitating symptoms of many chronic illnesses and depression. NAD+ is administered as a high-dose intravenous infusion, which enables it to bypass the digestive system and access your cells directly for better absorption.
At the Kaplan Center, we use NAD+ IV Therapy for the following protocols:
- Preventing or Treating Cognitive Decline
- Improving Athletic Recovery
- Reducing Anxiety, Depression, & PTSD Symptoms
- Treating Chronic Conditions
My sleep is now more restful and I don’t feel that intense fatigue. And that also applies to my work, I feel that I have more mental capacity to take on tasks, and am able to accomplish them in less time. – Joan H.
On the days I get the NAD IV I am able to get full nights of sleep. These results are also reflected during the day, I get more things done and feel a boost of energy. – Julia B.
What Is An NAD+ IV Treatment Series Like?
For optimal results, we prescribe a 6-gram dose administered over approximately 7 IV sessions. Depending on your preference, availability, and your doctor’s recommendation, these IV sessions may be scheduled once per week or more frequently (up to 2-3 sessions per week).
Recommended IV dosage/schedule: First IV – 500mg, 5 subsequent IVs of 1g/each, last IV – 500mg. Patients may choose to increase the number of sessions if smaller doses are preferred.
Patients will receive the infusion in a comfortable room under the care and supervision of our experienced medical staff who are extensively trained in IV administration.
* An assessment by a Kaplan physician, or a Physician Referral is required in advance of receiving NAD+ IV treatments.
