Alongside its primary residential program, Experience Structured Living offers complementary holistic services that support clients in their recovery journey. Mental health issues can contribute to chronically low energy and fatigue. For this reason, we offer all eligible residents NAD IV therapy in our San Diego facility.
What is Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD)?
NAD is a type of B vitamin produced naturally within every living cell. Our bodies use NAD to break down energy from food and transport that energy throughout our cellular systems. NAD plays a central role in basic functions, such as cell repair, immune response, and DNA protection.
NAD also protects cells from damage from oxidative stress and free radicals. The molecule’s antioxidative properties also support cognitive and organ function.
When our bodies produce the optimum amount of NAD, we experience focus, energy, and vitality. If NAD levels decrease, our metabolism slows and cell damage accumulates. Low NAD levels are often found in patients with chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and heart disease.
While high NAD levels are essential to our well-being, our bodies cannot produce enough NAD over our lifetimes. NAD levels drop gradually as we age. Some chronic illnesses can also cause NAD levels to fall. At the same time, our bodies begin to burn through NAD at a faster rate. This can lead to an imbalance, and eventually, a deficit. However, supplements can boost NAD levels and help replenish low NAD stores.
What Is NAD IV Therapy?
NAD IV therapy is an intravenous therapy that increases NAD levels by delivering a solution with the molecule directly to the bloodstream. From there, NAD binds to cells, which improves function and cell regeneration.
NAD supplements support the body in two ways. The additional NAD increases NAD levels, which is absorbed and immediately used by the body to repair cells and extract energy. NAD IV also improves the body’s ability to produce NAD by lowering inflammation, removing brain fog, and eliminating fatigue. This makes it easier to implement healthy habits, such as exercise and following a regular sleep pattern.
How Does NAD IV Therapy Work
NAD IV therapy is administered through an IV drip. This slowly delivers a combination of saline and a form of NAD called NAD+ into the veins. This releases the highest amount of supplemental NAD possible into the body.
The entire process may take several hours and multiple treatment courses, but most people notice results during their first session.
How Can NAD IV Therapy Help?
Completing NAD IV therapy in San Diego at least once a month can restore NAD to its optimal levels. High NAD is associated with the following indicators of health and well-being:
- A more robust immune system
- Healthier and younger-looking skin
- Improved brain cell protection
- Higher insulin sensitivity
- Increased energy and stamina
The Benefits to NAD IV Therapy
There are many benefits to offering NAD IV treatment in San Diego to our clients.
Firstly, IV therapies bypass the digestive system, ensuring the body receives a higher concentration of NAD.
This makes NAD IV therapy more effective than oral NAD supplements. Other sources of NAD, such as green leafy vegetables, do not contain enough to replace the volume lost from aging and illness. NAD IV safely administers a dosage high enough to increase NAD levels significantly.
What To Expect During Treatment
We deliver our NAD IV in San Diego as part of residential client services. While any client can benefit from NAD IV, our case managers may recommend the treatment for clients with the following conditions:
- Chronic pain
- Low energy
- Substance withdrawal or cravings
NAD IV therapy is also an effective preventative anti-aging treatment as it can slow the natural decline of NAD.
The NAD IV treatment takes place on-site. Clients can have a comfortable seat while a member of our medical team locates a vein in the arm. The staff member will clean and prepare the skin. Some people experience mild but temporary pain at the injection site.
Once the drip process begins, clients may feel a boost of energy and focus. These results from a single session can last for up to two weeks.
