Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or more commonly known as NAD, is a naturally occurring coenzyme of niacin that is found in every cell in the body and impacts many systems in the body, including energy, mental clarity, digestion, and cognition. It helps support our internal organs and neurological systems. It’s especially helpful for individuals who are undergoing therapy for addiction recovery and substance abuse.
If you or someone you love is overcoming an addiction, NAD IV therapy may help improve the recovery process.
What Is NAD IV Therapy for Addiction Recovery?
When someone abuses alcohol, drugs, or other addictive substances, their natural stores of NAD are depleted. Because of this depletion, the brain struggles to receive the same energy it normally would.
With NAD IV treatments, you can supplement and restore levels of this coenzyme in your body. The IV drip contains a saline solution with a concentrated dose of NAD, which is slowly delivered intravenously directly to your bloodstream and brain. This delivery method allows the coenzyme to be available to your cells for immediate use with 100% absorption by bypassing the digestive system entirely. With NAD IV therapy, patients can receive an immediate energy and mood boost from a natural source, rather than from addictive substances.
Specifically, NAD IV therapy has shown promise as a holistic alternative for those undergoing addiction recovery related to:
It’s a good option for individuals looking to avoid the side effects of medication-based solutions. NAD IV therapy helps by detoxifying the body while also replacing essential nutrients and vitamins that are often depleted through substance abuse. Further, it reduces withdrawal symptoms by binding opiate receptors, which can help patients overcome cravings and reduce the risk of a relapse.
Benefits of NAD IV Therapy for Addiction
Because NAD is involved in so many systems in the body, it offers many benefits to those undergoing addiction therapy.
Most promising, NAD therapy can flush out the drugs that are still in the patient’s system, while also helping to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings. These symptoms can be uncomfortable, painful, and difficult to tolerate. Further, NAD increases your body’s levels of a neurotransmitter called serotonin. Serotonin is associated with mood regulation, which can help improve depression symptoms. NAD may also improve brain health and neurological function, as well as boost mental clarity and brain regeneration. It can enhance energy levels and reduce fatigue.
Due to all these benefits, the recovery process tends to be easier physically and mentally.
