Living with depression and anxiety can feel like the world’s weight always rests on your shoulders. According to the Centers for Disease Control and The World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that 5% of adults and 11% of adolescents suffer from some form of depressive or anxiety disorder. Symptoms include persistent sadness and a lack of interest or pleasure in previously rewarding or enjoyable activities. Sleep and appetite disturbance, tiredness, and poor concentration are also common.
Benefits of NAD IV Therapy for Depression
NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is present in every cell of our bodies. NAD reaches its highest levels in infancy and childhood but declines by up to 50% by age 30. A co-enzyme, NAD is responsible for regenerating cells and activating sirtuins that help regulate hormones, build immunity, boost metabolism, and reduce the oxidative stress that damages cells and inflames the brain. Benefits include improved cognitive function, increased energy, better sleep, feeling rested after sleeping, and overall wellness. NAD also detoxifies the body and removes harmful substances such as drugs, metals, molds, and carcinogens, leaving the body feeling vibrant and reversing feelings of depression and anxiety. Because of NAD’s detoxifying capabilities, IV NAD is used to combat addiction and improve cognitive function in people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease.
