Nicotinamide adenosine dinucleotide, or NAD, is a coenzyme of B3, or niacin, and is important for cellular health. NAD+ is the active form and vital for creating energy and many other processes. One of the side effects of alcohol and drug use can be the conversion of NAD+ to NADH, or an imbalance of these two forms of NAD. The result can be unhealthy and even dying cells. To restore health and minimize damage from drugs and alcohol, NexGen Health offers NAD+ IV therapy infusion treatment for addiction at our clinic in San Jose, CA.
The higher levels of NADH and lower levels of NAD+ that can occur with alcohol and drug addiction impact the individual’s health down to the cellular level. With excessive alcohol consumption, NAD+ is converted to NADH when the body is burning the alcohol molecules. This can create too much NADH in the body, especially the liver, resulting in liver cell death. In addition, lower NAD+ can impair neurotransmitter and hormone function in the brain, resulting in lower levels of natural serotonin and dopamine, which can impact mood. NAD+ also helps cellular detox, which is needed for those struggling with addiction.
Reduce Cravings and Improved Detox
NAD+ IV therapy infusion treatment for addiction to drugs and alcohol has had promising results. When used with an addiction program, NAD+ IV treatment can help the body detox quicker and improve cellular and hormone function. Patients can begin healing their bodies at a cellular level from the damage caused by excess alcohol and drugs while experiencing fewer cravings and a better mood from an improved neurotransmitter function in the brain.
