Unlock Your Summer Glow: How NAD+ IV Therapy Can Transform Your Skin

Updated: 4 days ago

As summer approaches, many of us look forward to spending as much time as possible outdoors, soaking up the sun's warmth. However, we also know that too much sun exposure can take a toll on our skin, leading to premature aging and an increased risk of skin cancer.


One surprising way you can take care of your skin this summer is with NAD+ IV therapy. In this blog, we'll delve into the great benefits of IV NAD+ for your skin's health. So, before you head out into the summer sun, consider how IV NAD+ therapy could help protect and nourish your skin from the inside out. You can find out more about our skincare program here.



Before we dive in, more on NAD+ IV Therapy:


NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is a coenzyme found in all living cells and has even been called an anti-aging molecule because of its many important roles in promoting health and prolonging lifespan. NAD+ is required for your mitochondria to create energy. With no NAD+, your mitochondria would not be able to carry out functions like DNA repair, gene expression and transcription, cell signaling, and energy regulation. NAD+ is naturally produced in your body from multiple dietary sources like tryptophan and forms of vitamin B.


In layman’s terms, we need NAD+ to live. However, as we get older, our bodies generate less and less of the coenzyme. This is one reason why we begin to feel the effects of aging and become more prone to age-related illnesses as the years pass by. Moreover, factors like stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, alcohol consumption, lack of exercise, and drug use can all further deplete your NAD+ levels. Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress can all exacerbate NAD+ depletion.


One of the ways you can supplement NAD+ in your body is through IV therapy. This is a holistic, all-natural way to help your body fight against aging and illness to feel healthier and more youthful. Oral supplements of NAD do exist, but it is difficult for your body to absorb NAD+ this way and thus hard to guarantee results. Currently, IV therapy is the safest and most efficient way of supplementing the coenzyme in your body.


Here's how NAD+ IV therapy will keep your skin looking healthy and glowy all year long:

Protection Against Sun Damage and Aging:


UV radiation from the sun can wreak havoc on our skin, causing oxidative stress, DNA damage, and inflammation. Over time, this damage accumulates, leading to premature aging and an increased risk of skin cancer. However, research suggests that IV NAD+ therapy may offer a solution.


By delivering high doses of NAD+ directly into the bloodstream, IV NAD+ therapy can replenish cellular levels of this crucial coenzyme, providing enhanced protection against sun damage. Studies have shown that NAD+ helps to neutralize free radicals, repair damaged DNA, and reduce inflammation, all of which contribute to healthier, more resilient skin.


Reversal of Skin Damage:


The skin has remarkable regenerative capabilities, but these processes can become overwhelmed by excessive sun exposure. IV NAD+ therapy works to restore the skin's natural repair mechanisms, allowing it to effectively reverse damage caused by UV radiation.


By stimulating DNA repair pathways and promoting cellular regeneration, IV NAD+ therapy can help to repair sun-damaged skin, restoring its youthful appearance and texture. IV NAD+ therapy has been associated with anti-aging effects, including the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging caused by sun exposure.


Enhanced Cellular Repair and Anti-Aging:


NAD+ is a critical coenzyme involved in cellular metabolism and energy production. It plays a central role in the function of mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell, where it helps to convert nutrients into energy. Additionally, NAD+ is a key regulator of sirtuin proteins, which are involved in various cellular processes, including DNA repair, inflammation, and aging.


By replenishing cellular NAD+ levels, IV NAD+ therapy can enhance cellular repair processes, promoting the regeneration of healthy skin cells and reducing the signs of aging. Studies have shown that NAD supplementation can improve mitochondrial function, increase cellular energy levels, and enhance the activity of sirtuin proteins, all of which contribute to healthier, more youthful-looking skin.


Don't trust us? Here's the science:


The scientific basis for IV NAD+ therapy's benefits in skin health lies in its role in various cellular processes crucial for maintaining skin integrity and function. NAD+ is a coenzyme involved in cellular metabolism, particularly in the production of ATP, the cell's primary energy source. This is crucial for maintaining healthy skin cells, as ATP is required for processes such as cell repair, proliferation, and maintaining the skin barrier function.


Furthermore, NAD+ is a key player in DNA repair mechanisms. UV radiation from the sun can induce DNA damage in skin cells, leading to mutations and ultimately, skin cancer. NAD+ acts as a cofactor for enzymes involved in DNA repair, helping to maintain genomic integrity and prevent the accumulation of mutations.


NAD+ also plays a role in regulating sirtuin activity. Sirtuins are a class of proteins involved in various cellular processes, including DNA repair, inflammation, and aging. By activating sirtuins, NAD+ can help regulate these processes, promoting skin health and resilience.


Other Benefits of NAD IV therapy:


In addition to its effects on skin health, IV NAD+ therapy has been studied for its potential benefits in other areas of health and wellness. NAD is involved in numerous cellular processes throughout the body, making it a promising treatment for a variety of conditions.


Some other benefits of IV NAD+ therapy include:


  1. Increased Energy Levels: NAD+ plays a crucial role in energy production within cells. By boosting NAD+ levels, IV NAD+ therapy can enhance cellular energy production, leading to increased energy levels and improved overall vitality.

  2. Improved Cognitive Function: NAD+ is involved in neuronal health and function. Studies suggest that IV NAD therapy may help improve cognitive function and protect against neurodegenerative diseases.

  3. Enhanced Athletic Performance: NAD+ plays a role in muscle function and recovery. IV NAD therapy may help improve athletic performance and reduce recovery time after intense exercise.

  4. Support for Addiction Recovery: NAD+ has been studied for its potential in addiction recovery. IV NAD therapy may help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it easier for individuals to overcome addiction.

  5. Anti-Aging Effects: NAD+ has been associated with anti-aging effects throughout the body, not just in the skin. IV NAD therapy may help slow down the aging process and promote overall health and longevity.
