NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a prevalent electron transporter, coenzyme, and signaling molecule found in all cells of the body and is vital for cell function and viability.

NAD+ is essential for the metabolic processes and reactions that occur within our cells, as well as brain rejuvenation.  All cellular events occurring within our bodies require the presence of NAD+.   


Depletion of NAD+ has been associated with the onset of age related illness and disease, increased DNA damage, and mitochondrial dysfunction.

NAD+ is most commonly utilized by patients for its anti-aging benefits 
that both increase cognitive function and prevent cognitive decline.

NAD+ Benefits

  • Improved Cognitive Functions:  Improved performance in mental clarity, focus, memory, and improved mood.​

  • Prevents Cognitive Decline and neurological cellular aging

  • Protect against age related cognitive diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

  • Promote healing of GI disorders and improves overall digestive health

  • Increased energy and metabolism

  • Enhances Mitochondrial function and repairs Mitochondrial damage

  • Improves hearing and eyesight function

  • Improved cardiovascular health

  • Addiction support:  Decreases cravings and withdrawal symptoms

  • Improved athletic performance and recovery from sports and exercise

  • Improved sleep quality

  • Anti-Aging Properties:  Slows the overall aging process by supporting DNA repair and cellular signaling.

NAD+ Administration

NAD+ dosing is 50mg  administered two to three times weekly by IM injection.  NAD+ is administered in a 3 month cycle.
