If you’re looking for ways to feel your best as you age—or potentially even increase your lifespan—you’ve probably heard of NAD+. The buzzy coenzyme may slow the progression of age-related diseases, extend lifespan, and more. You can swallow oral NAD+ supplements and get NAD+ IV therapy at clinics, but the most effective way to boost your levels is with NAD injections, which you can buy online and administer in the comfort and privacy of your own home. And it’s perfectly safe.
Buying NAD+ injections online—or frankly, buying any supplement on the internet—isn’t something to take lightly. The Food and Drug Administration doesn’t regulate supplements the same way they regulate medications, so it’s important to get supplements, including NAD injections from a source you can trust (more on that below).
Interested in getting NAD injections at home? Here’s everything you need to know.
What is NAD+?
NAD+, a form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is found in virtually every cell in your body (all 37.2 trillion of them) and is involved in almost all major biological processes.
“We’re still learning about the benefits of NAD+, but it appears to help protect us from inflammation, DNA damage, oxidative stress, and other factors that age us,” says Jeng.
Your body produces NAD+ on its own. It also, through a series of chemical reactions, takes micronutrients and substances from food and supplements and turns them into NAD+ (1).
Here’s the thing: as you age, your NAD+ levels drop. Between young adulthood and old age, they can plummet by as much as 25 percent in certain organs (2, 3). Stress, alcohol use, and a poor diet can speed up that decline (4).
That’s scary, since declining NAD+ levels have been linked to premature aging, as well as health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer (5).
NAD+ IV Therapy at a Glance
- NAD+ is a coenzyme that can protect you from inflammation, DNA damage, oxidative stress and other factors that age you.
- Your body produces NAD+ but as you get older, you make less.
- Diminished NAD+ levels have been linked to premature aging and serious health conditions including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Benefits of NAD+ IV Therapy
NAD+ may have only recently popped up on your radar, but researchers discovered it way back in 1906. Over the last few decades, scientists have been studying its potential to slow down or reverse age-related health issues, improve energy and focus, speed up metabolism, boost cardiovascular health, and more.
“The research on NAD+ is limited in humans, but what we’ve seen so far is very promising,” says Jeng.
Studies suggest a smorgasbord of potential NAD+ benefits. Increasing NAD+ levels may:
NAD+ may boost energy, increase lifespan, help with weight loss and improve brain function. Now available with us.
You can take NAD+ supplements and get NAD+ IV therapy, but NAD+ injections offer some unique benefits over the other delivery methods, says Jeng. Among them:
NAD+ supplements have to travel through your digestive system before reaching your bloodstream. With injections, NAD+ is absorbed directly into your blood, so it can get to work faster.
NAD+ IV therapy also bypasses the gut, but you can’t DIY an IV. You need to spend several hours at a clinic, tethered to an IV drip to get a similar dose to home injections.
NAD+ IV therapy sessions can run upwards of RM1500 per session, and NAD+ injections for home use can cost RM800 per month or more through other companies.
You’ll also pay a monthly membership fee, which varies depending on whether or not you are receiving testosterone therapy. If you only take NAD+, your monthly membership fee is $25. If you’re on TRT as well and require periodic lab testing, the monthly membership fee is $120.
Do I Need a Prescription for NAD IV Therapy?
Yep. In order to receive NAD+ injections from us, one of our licensed medical professionals will determine if a prescription is appropriate.
