Toronto, Ontario -
Toronto Functional Medicine Centre in Toronto, ON, Canada, has recently published a blog post that explains how nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) IV therapy may provide an energy boost. This may be possible because NAD is a naturally occurring coenzyme in the body and is called a “helper molecule” because it promotes the conversion of food into energy and cell repair. Furthermore, NAD plays a primary role in energy metabolism and cell vitality, as it contributes significantly to mitochondrial function.
It’s important to note that it is inside the mitochondria that the metabolism of nutrients to produce energy for the body occurs. NAD helps by boosting the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is produced in the mitochondria. ATP’s role is to capture chemical energy from food molecules and release this energy to serve as fuel for other cellular processes, supporting vital functions, such as breathing and muscle contractions.
The beneficial effects of NAD on the body may include: helping prevent/delay cognitive decline and sarcopenia, fighting oxidative stress, optimizing DNA health, maintaining skeletal muscle health, and other health benefits. Unfortunately, NAD levels decline as the body ages. Aside from ageing, NAD depletion may have a number of causes, such as: viral illnesses; alcohol overindulgence, overeating; mold exposures; erratic sleep schedule (i.e. night shift work); sedentary routines in daily life; and Lyme disease and other chronic illnesses.
The IV Lounge of the Toronto Functional Medicine Centre may be able to offer help for people with low stamina. Their healthcare providers may suggest supplementation with NAD after evaluating the various components of the patient’s health. These include thoroughly comprehending the patient’s health history, environmental and lifestyle factors, and possibly the use of lab testing. After thoroughly evaluating the various health indicators for the patient, they may recommend and tailor-fit a therapy plan that may include NAD IV therapy as support. When provided in combination with other therapies and healthy lifestyle elements, this kind of IV therapy may help with the patient’s optimal functioning.
The administration of the NAD IV therapy will begin after the patient has securely settled in the lounge. A slow drip with NAD will be administered through the patient’s vein, with the assistance of one of their team members. The administration will differ for each person, but its purpose is to provide an immediate and complete absorption of nutrients by bypassing the digestive tract. Every IV therapy session is supervised by a naturopathic doctor, medical doctor, registered nurses, and nurse practitioner. They will regularly check the patient’s vitals or make changes to the IV flow to assure a comfortable experience. After the session is complete, a team member will help in disconnecting the IV from the patient and provide after-care advice.
It is also important to note that if the patient would like other forms of supplementation, sublingual or intranasal supplementation may also be used for increasing NAD levels. IV therapy will typically be provided in combination with exercise, healthy diet, and other treatment modalities. In addition, their team can adapt IV therapy for various health issues, such as DNA repair, athletic performance, chronic inflammation, hair health, adrenal fatigue, insulin levels support, ageing-associated diseases, post alcohol overindulgence support, neurological function, and more.
