What is NAD Therapy?
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a naturally occurring coenzyme that helps your body produce energy. This coenzyme also supports DNA repair and a cellular electron transporter (communication line between your cells). Gentera Center for Precision Medicine provides many therapies to restore health and vitality, including NAD therapy. To find out more about NAD therapy and how it can benefit you, call the office in Coral Gables, Florida, or Los Angeles, California, near Beverly Hills, or schedule an appointment online today. Gentera Center for Precision Medicine uses the TruAge™ test with biological age testing. This cutting-edge test uses your DNA to assess your biological age.There’s a strong connection between DNA and health. Your genes may not change throughout your life, but certain factors may play a role in how your genes express themselves. Cellular replication is driven by your DNA. If you have DNA damage or mutations, this process may stop, leading to inflammation and cellular degeneration. Changes in DNA may occur when methyl groups attach themselves to your DNA strands, inhibiting gene expression. Inhibiting your genes or encouraging your genes to express themselves can profoundly influence how slowly or quickly you biologically age. The lower your biological age, the better.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) therapy is an advanced intravenous (IV) therapy that provides your body with NAD. NAD is a coenzyme found in every cell in your body. Your body uses NAD to create energy, repair DNA, and support cell-to-cell communication. The coenzyme sets your body's internal clock (circadian rhythm), converts food into energy, and fortifies your self-defense system. NAD production declines as you get older. The decrease in NAD is thought to be one of the factors that contribute to the body’s aging process, including neurodegenerative changes that affect memory and cognition. NAD therapy at Gentera Center for Precision Medicine supplies your body with the coenzyme to support and maintain normal body functions.
What are the benefits of NAD therapy?
In addition to maintaining normal body function, NAD therapy also benefits specific health needs. Gentera Center for Precision Medicine takes a patient-centered approach to care and provides precision medicine, offering treatments that fit your exact needs.
The providers use innovative diagnostic lab tests to better understand your exact health needs. That includes TruAge™ and PhysioAge™ testing, which look at your DNA to determine how your current lifestyle habits may affect your future health.
Some of the health needs and conditions that benefit from NAD therapy include:
- Low energy
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Neurodegenerative diseases
- Traumatic brain damage
NAD therapy may also benefit those struggling with a drug or alcohol problem.
What happens during NAD therapy?
NAD therapy is an in-office treatment. Gentera Center for Precision Medicine customizes your NAD therapy to match your specific health needs and goals. Your provider reviews the details of your plan at your consultation so you know what to expect.
During NAD therapy, you sit and relax in the therapy chair while your provider inserts an IV line into your arm and starts your therapy. Treatment may take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
To gain the most benefits from NAD therapy, you may need six to 10 therapy sessions.
Gentera Center for Precision Medicine offers many advanced IV therapy treatments, and your provider may suggest adding another nutrient infusion to your NAD therapy to enhance the health benefits.
