How does NAD play a role in metabolism
NAD and NAD+ works on the cellular level and the mitochondria to help in the metabolic process and cellular energy metabolism and energy production. NAD(+) plays an important role in the oxidation-reduction reactions in mitochondria and living cells as well as a signaling molecule. NAD(+) plays a key role in mitochondrial function via participation in pyruvate dehydrogenase, tricarboxylic acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation chemistries. NAD increases the activity of SIRT1 and PARP1 proteins which have been associated with the slowing of the aging process as well as DNA repair. The sirtuin family of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (SIRT1–7) are thought to be responsible for the cardiometabolic benefits of lean diets and exercise and when activated can slow down some of the key aspects of aging. SIRT1 protects against a decline in vascular endothelial function, metabolic syndrome, ischemia-reperfusion injury, obesity, and cardiomyopathy, and SIRT3 is protective against dyslipidemia and ischemia-reperfusion injury.
As we age, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide levels and sirtuin activity steadily decrease, and the decline is further exacerbated by weight gain and a sedentary lifestyles. Activation of sirtuins or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide repletion induces angiogenesis, insulin sensitivity, and other health benefits in a wide range of age-related cardiovascular and metabolic disease models. Human clinical trials are currently ongoing and an increase in NAD+ levels show promise in their ability to improve the overall health of cardiovascular and metabolic disease patients.
NAD IV and Anti-Aging
NAD and its coenzyme are believed to help restore the integrity of cells as well as assist in DNA repair. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is a potent antioxidant and thus can help with the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. Our bodies naturally produce NAD to help combat damage from free radicals, but unfortunately this important molecule decreases as we age and with environmental exposure. Restoring NAD levels in the body can improve physical appearance, cognitive function as well as overall health and wellness. One of the main differences at the DNA level between old age individuals and children is their telomere length. Telomeres represent a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at chromosome ends. It is believed that NAD plays a role in the decrease of telomere lenght and slowing of the aging process. The most effective way to increase NAD levels is by an IV drip.
NAD Cellular Detox in Los Angeles
NAD Cellular Detox is only offered in a few centers throughout the United States. Our state-of-the-art facility in Los Angeles provides a comprehensive approach to health and wellness which encompasses IV Vitamin therapy and brain restorative therapy with the best IV infusion of NAD compounded in the United States.
Patients who choose MyConciergeMD arrive from all over the country and the United States in search of the best treatment center that provides IV NAD therapy. We provide customized detox plans as well as anti-aging plans to help you feel your best. Our services range from psychiatric evaluation and treatment, psychotherapy, medical evaluations and treatment, nutritional assessment and treatment, IV Vitamin replacement, hormone optimization and more. Each patient in our practice receives a unique treatment plan that fits their needs and is based on their medical history and possible addiction history.
Withdrawal and detox can often times be a long and painful process. Withdrawal symptoms ranging from diarrhea, body aches, depression, fatigue, headaches, mood changes, nausea, and seizures can all be too much for one to handle on their own.
These withdrawal symptoms can often make it very difficult for someone addicted to undergo detox and receive the treatment that they so desperately need. It is very difficult and at times very dangerous to treat detox and undergo withdrawal symptoms without medical supervision depending on the addicted substance.
Once the symptoms of withdrawal are minimized or eliminated and patients properly detoxed, patients may focus on long-term recovery. Our physicians and clinical staff at MyConciergeMD are highly trained in addiction medicine and treating those with addiction to a variety of drugs and substances. Our teams of experts use a variety of treatment modalities including IV NAD detox therapy, IV infusion therapy, to decrease withdrawal symptoms and cravings. This novel approach at the same time provide cellular energy and stores of neurotransmitters and improves overall health.
Benefits of IV NAD besides detox
There are many other benefits of IV NAD therapy besides its role in addiction and recovery. IV NAD therapy has been shown to be helpful in increasing energy levels, improving memory, improving alertness, improving athletic performance, improving mood, improving sleep, decreasing cardiovascular risk, decreasing blood pressure, decreasing aortic stiffness, increasing HDL levels, improving cellular dysfunction, and more.
One of the greatest benefits of IV NAD in detox is its effectiveness in decreasing the discomfort associated with withdrawals and its ability to help in detoxing from addicting substance for good. Through treatment, cravings are significantly reduced and the detox process speeds up at an increased rate. At times, traditional detox medications are used less regularly and patients have an easier time throughout the whole process.
Apart from providing detoxification to the body, increased energy in brain cells and other cells in the body is provided by NAD infusion. NAD has other functions in the body including protecting and repairing our DNA, lowering cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, boosting our immune system, as well as improving blood flow to the whole body.
New research shows a link with NAD levels and parkinsons disease. The decline of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) levels is a hallmark of aging in multiple organisms and tissues, including the human brain. Hence, agents that increase intracellular NAD+ could have beneficial effects in aging and age-related neurodegenerative diseases. Disturbances in NAD+ metabolism have also been observed in Parkinson’s disease (PD), supporting a link between neuronal bioenergetics failure and disease pathogenesis.
