What is NAD and how does it play a role in addiction?

NAD also known as Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucletide is the co-enzyme of niacin or vitamin B3. This molecule reacts with oxygen in the mitochondria in all our cells and is responsible in the production of energy used for all our vital organs. NAD is responsible in the production of energy in our brain cells, the stimulation and production of neurotransmitters and hormones such as dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline and more. It is thought that this important molecule and such neurotransmitters are decreased during abuse of drugs and alcohol. Increasing NAD levels stimulates the production of energy and neurotransmitters responsible for better mood and overall function.

IV NAD therapy has shown to increase dopamine stores which are usually depleted with substance abuse and through the detox process.

Why NAD Cellular Detox?

It is thought that drugs and alcohol change and reorganize specific brain chemicals and hormones and NAD restorative therapy assists in resetting and re-balancing these chemicals and hormones. Increasing the function of the body, brain, mood, energy, mental cognition, and focus are imperative part of detox and recovery.  

Have studied showed the benefits of NAD in the treatment of addiction?

Yes there are studies going back to the 1960’s which demonstrate the effectiveness of IV NAD therapy in patients detoxing from alcohol, opioids and other substances.
