For the past several years, awareness around the molecule NAD+ has grown because of its role in aging. “It’s probably one of the most important molecules on the planet, so important in fact, that without it, life would cease to exist,” says Rhonda Patrick, Ph.D. of the FoundMyFitness YouTube channel.
NAD+ plays a critical role in energy metabolism. Without it, you can’t make energy. And unfortunately, NAD+ levels decrease in our bodies as we age. Though small amounts of NAD+ can be found in certain foods, supplementing NAD+ may increase levels in the body and give you that added energy boost you’re craving.
And starting November 1, it’s about to get easier at Restore, with the introduction of NAD+ Shots.
What is An NAD+ Shot?
An IM (intramuscular) shot is an injection of vitamins, minerals or specific amino/enzyme blends that are typically administered into the deltoid muscle of the arm, glute or thigh and allows for the supplement to be absorbed into the bloodstream quickly. It’s not a hydration boost like IV Therapy, but it takes a fraction of the time that IV does and offers rapid and uniform absorption, as opposed to oral or subcutaneous routes. So you can choose to focus on your wellness journey and get NAD+ delivered straight into your muscle, where 100 percent of the supplement can be utilized by the body. And suddenly, you’ve got more time to walk, run and get those step counts elevated to new heights!
Why Do I Need NAD+ Shot?
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is an essential molecule in the body that converts nutrients into energy. NAD+ is a coenzyme of the Vitamin B3 that activates reactions after binding to protein molecules. As we age, NAD+ levels decrease within our bodies. Habits such as overeating and excessive alcohol consumption can also lead to a decline in NAD+. Low levels of NAD+ are linked to premature skin aging, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, 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 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 via IV Drip Therapy.
How Can NAD+ Shots Help Me?
In under 15 minutes, NAD+ IM Shots may help the body:
- Boost cognitive clarity, mood and energy
- Improve cardiovascular health, strength and endurance
- Accelerate the healing of muscles and tissues
- Boost cellular health and reset the baseline of your health
- Repair damage and protect from the inside out
What’s The Difference Between NAD+ Shots and NAD+ IV Drip Therapy?
Time. NAD+ Shots are the perfect solution for customers who are curious about NAD+, but don’t have the time to sit through a 60+ minute IV Drip. After receiving your NAD+ prescription, get in and out for your quick dose within 10 minutes! If you have 15 min, do a Whole Body Cryo session before your shot to decrease pain and get a more powerful energy kick!
