What Is NAD+?
NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) plays a critical role in aging. NAD+ is a coenzyme vital for energy metabolism, DNA repair, immunity, and more---for healthy aging and metabolic homeostasis.
Unfortunately, as we age NAD+ levels decrease in our bodies. While small amounts of NAD+ can be found in certain foods, exercising consistently into older age and supplementing with NAD+ has been shown to increase levels in the body to bolster your longevity at the cellular level and give you an energy boost.
What Is An IM Shot?
An IM (intramuscular) shot is an injection of vitamins, minerals or specific amino/enzyme blends. These intramusclar shots are typically administered into the deltoid muscle of the arm, glute or thigh and allow supplement absorption into the bloodstream quickly.
Similar to IV Drip Therapy, IM Shots deliver 100% absorption, compared to 15% - 20% absorption from diet or oral supplementation. However, IM Shots only take 10 - 15 minutes compared to a 60-minute IV Drip session.
Why Do I Need NAD+ Shot?
Low levels of NAD+ have been linked to premature skin aging, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity, and vision loss. NAD+ infusions intend to increase the levels of NAD+ to help with the symptoms of aging caused by the body’s decline in NAD.
The goal of NAD+ IM Shot Therapy is for the body to clean house of damaged cellular components so the baseline of cellular health is reset---without spending precious time waiting for NAD+ to be administered through IV Drip Therapy.
How Can NAD+ Shots Help?
In under 15 minutes, NAD+ IM Shots may help the body:
- Enhance cognitive clarity, mood and energy
- Improve cardiovascular health, strength and endurance
- Accelerate muscle and tissue healing
- Repair cellular damage
What’s The Difference Between NAD+ Shots and NAD+ IV Drip Therapy?
The only difference between an IM Shot and an IV Drip with NAD+ is the time. NAD+ IM Shots are the perfect solution for clients who want the benefits of NAD+ but only have 10 - 15 minutes. An NAD+ IV Drip can take 1-4 hours.
After receiving your NAD+ prescription, you can get in and out for your quick dose within 10 minutes. If you have 15 minutes, we recommend adding a Cryotherapy session before your NAD+ IM Shot to decrease pain and get a more powerful energy kick!
