Most Absorbable forms
Oral supplementation – TruNiagen, Elysium – are brands that specialize in oral supplementation of NAD+. They use the ribosome or precursors to NAD+ to stimulate the body’s increased production of NAD+.
SubQ injections – there has been clinical case studies that have shown subQ injections of NAD+ of 50-100mg having the same effects of IV NAD+. The benefit of the SubQ injections are you avoid the discomfort and long IV time of 2-3 hours during an NAD+ IV.
IV NAD+ – has shown the highest efficacy and effectiveness in the absorption of NAD+. Providing the neurological benefits, anti-aging effects, mitochondrial boosting properties, and increased energy. 100% of the B-NAD+ (most absorbable form) is absorbed directly into the bloodstream for immediate effects.
WHICH IV IS BEST FOR ME?
How is NAD+ IV Therapy done?
NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is a co-enzyme found in our cells that plays a vital role in metabolism. In our bodies, NAD exists in two forms, NAD+ and NADH, both crucial for the functioning of cells. Primarily, they help the body’s mitochondria to convert nutrients into energy. Studies have shown that NAD+ levels naturally decline with age. You can raise these levels by taking NAD boosters or supplements. At LIVV Natural Health we administer NAD in various forms including intramuscular shots, IV therapy, transdermal administration, and oral and sublingual tablets.
The Powerful Effects
NAD+ has many different functions and uses as the therapy is dose dependent. Meaning that at specific dosages of NAD+ administered IV – different effects and neurological receptors are stimulated. Such as patients addicted to opiates and have been trying to get off the medication for years suffer from withdrawal symptoms & it is a hard medication to completely wean off of. NAD+ might be the answer – as it binds onto the same receptor as opiates do but does not have the same physiological effects such as suboxone. NAD+ is a one of the powerful nutrients with a wide range of benefits – check out below to see the conditions treated.
- Reverses and slows down the aging process
- Boosts energy levels in the body
- Protects cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals
- Maintains healthy circadian rhythm promoting good sleep
- Increased GABA levels in the brain which reduces anxiety and stress

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is a co-enzyme found in our cells that plays a vital role in various chemical processes, most notably in metabolism. In our bodies, NAD exists in two forms, NAD+ and NADH, both crucial for the functioning of cells. Primarily, they help the body’s mitochondria to convert nutrients into energy.
NAD is found in two forms, the oxidized form, and the reduced form. NAD+ is the oxidized form of NAD, while NADH is the reduced form. NAD+ is a vital co-enzyme that binds itself to other molecules causing essential biological processes to happen effectively. One of its most important functions is in metabolism, where it helps convert food into energy. It also repairs DNA and protects cells from oxidative stress, helps to maintain healthy circadian rhythms and helps with the production which slows down the aging process.
Studies have shown that NAD+ levels naturally decline with age. NAD+ is found in many foods, especially those rich in B vitamins. Increasing your intake of these foods can help raise your NAD+ levels. You can also take adenosine dietary supplements available in stores. Other ways of boosting NAD+ levels include intermittent fasting, going on a Keto (ketogenic) diet, exercise, wearing sunscreen when outside, and reducing alcohol intake.
Any foods that fall under group B vitamins are high in NAD. Examples are avocados, nuts, milk, grains, chicken, mushrooms, eggs, lentils, and fish. B vitamins are easily destroyed during the cooking process. To maintain their high levels in food during preparation, consider eating raw foods e.g. nuts, seeds and avocados. For foods that require cooking, try steaming and baking as opposed to frying and boiling.
NAD levels decline with age, which accelerates aging. Studies show that increasing NAD levels can reverse or slow down the effects of aging. NAD+ helps cells to function effectively. It also promotes proper functioning of Sirtuin proteins which are known to slow down the aging process. Eating foods that are high in NAD or taking supplements to boost NAD levels can be of great benefit. Incorporating NAD+ IV treatments such as those offered at LIVV’s San Diego clinic can help repair damaged cells, and increase neurological function.
NAD is a coenzyme that is found in all living cells. It exists in two forms, NAD+ and NADH. NAD+ is the oxidized form of NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide). ‘Oxidized’ means that it can readily accept a hydrogen atom in essential chemical processes that continuously take place in the body. When it accepts the atom, it becomes NADH. Upon giving it away to another molecule, it becomes NAD+ again, and the cycle continues, enabling the enzymes to proceed with critical bodily functions.
Vitamin B3 is a dietary precursor of NAD. This means that vitamin B3 is converted or transformed into NAD in the body. For this reason, it is recommended that to increase NAD levels in the body; one must increase the intake of foods rich in B vitamins.
Nicotinamide riboside is a form of vitamin B, often referred to as NR. NR is a precursor to NAD+, meaning that in a chemical reaction, it is transformed to NAD+. Some of the foods rich in NR include dairy products such as milk, yeast, fish, green vegetables and whole grains.
NAD boosters are dietary supplements designed to increase the levels of NAD+ in the body with the subsequent goal of slowing down the aging process. These boosters mainly contain nicotinamide riboside (NR) or Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (MNM). NR and MNM are both forms of vitamin B. Once ingested, they are converted into NAD+, a coenzyme involved in many cellular processes. Among this is the repair of cells which might slow down aging.
NAD plays a vital role in numerous cellular functions such as DNA repair, protecting cells from oxidative stress, maintaining healthy metabolic function and many others. NAD has been seen to improve communication between our cells and circadian rhythms, including sleep-wake cycles. When NAD levels are low, our circadian rhythms are somewhat off-balance, and this can impact negatively on metabolic activity and brain health which can affect our sleep.
If administered without proper care, NAD+ treatment using IV therapy can result in adverse side effects such as nausea, chest tightness, cramps and sinus pressure. These effects are caused by releasing the solution into the body too fast. At LIVV Natural Health, our doctors are highly trained in administering the IV solution very slowly to avoid the said effects. As a result, you will be required to spend 3-4 hours on the drip which is a small price to pay for an effect-free, curing treatment.
NAD+ treatment has numerous potential benefits, including:
- Improved mitochondrial health- NAD+ injections boost mitochondrial processes and function while also maintaining energy levels in the body.
- Reduced oxidative damage in cells- When free radicals damage cells they function poorly which exacerbates the aging process. NAD+ injections can reverse this process.
- Increased GABA levels in the brain- GABA is an important neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) in the brain. It blocks specific signals in our brain while protecting the nervous system from stress and anxiety.
- Improved DNA Repair- Normal day to day processes damage the DNA in cells. NAD+ has been seen to play an essential role in DNA repair by bringing a negative charge.
- More effective circadian rhythms- Studies have shown that NAD+ plays a vital role in regulating our sleep and hunger cycles by providing energy and nutrients as required.
Lyme disease is transmitted by ticks and causes fatigue, body aches, a stiff neck as well as joint and muscle pain. Although it is not a cure, NAD+ IV therapy done at our San Diego clinic can significantly reduce these symptoms. Patients undergoing IV treatment for Lyme disease have reported reduced symptoms after a few sessions and overall wellbeing.
We cannot exactly call it an anti-aging miracle, but NAD+ contributes to slowing down the aging process, repairing cells, fighting oxidative stress and improving brain function. NAD+ whether in the form of IV treatments or dietary supplements, can give you the much-needed edge when it comes to slowing down the effects of aging. This will, of course, work better if you incorporate exercise and a healthy diet in your daily routine.
