Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is found in every cell of your body. This essential molecule affects cell aging and energy production. Forum Health uses NAD+ amino acid therapy — delivered through IV therapy or oral supplements — to promote cell repair. At Forum Health, we want to reinvent how depression, autoimmunity, and so many other conditions that plague Americans are managed.Shilpa P. Saxena, MDCo-Chief Medical Officer, Forum Health Benefits of NAD+ Therapy Energy production: NAD+ is crucial to your body’s process of converting energy from food into cellular energy.Brain function: Increasing your NAD+ to NADH ratio protects brain cells from free radicals. This can improve your focus and concentration. NAD+ is also connected to circadian rhythms and can therefore help you restore normal sleep cycles and hunger patterns.Anti-aging: Your cells use NAD+ to activate sirtuin proteins, which regulate biological pathways. This helps protect your cells from age-related decline.Addiction management: Sirtuins protect against oxidative stress, which is linked to cravings for substances like opioids, alcohol, and tobacco.Cancer prevention: NAD+ can help your cells repair DNA, reducing the persistence of cancer-causing mutations.Immune function: NAD+ is essential to brain communication. But it can be depleted when your body is dealing with illness or stress. NAD+ treatment can reduce anxiety and increase your ability to deal with stress. Reclaim your health and well-being. Call your local practice to schedule your NAD+ amino acid therapy today. Find a Location Relieving Anxiety Everyday living can be incredibly stressful. For many, healing the brain from this stress is a constant battle. An imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain — gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, and dopamine — often triggers anxiety. NAD+ treatment helps rebalance these neurotransmitters and relieve patients of anxious feelings. Battling Depression Suffering from depression can be overwhelming — especially when you’ve tried several medications with little or no benefit. NAD+ therapy shows promise; in one trial, 93% of patients saw their depression improve. Anti-Aging Brain health is key to feeling youthful. Replenishing cellular levels of NAD+ can: Repair DNAProtect brain cells from damageReduce inflammationTurn on enzymes that help prevent aging Traumatic Brain Injury A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most devastating things anyone can experience. Beyond impaired cognition, TBI can result in cell death — depleting NAD+ and leading to energy failure. NAD+ treatment can prevent brain cell death.
