Is NAD+ Slowing Down the Aging Process?

Is NAD+ Slowing Down the Aging Process?As we age we thrive to maintain a healthy lifestyle and improve our quality of life. “Healthy aging” is a very accurate term for what we are aiming for.

So how can we achieve “healthy longevity”?

It is exciting to report that now there actually is a cutting-edge treatment that has become a very promising tool in our fight against many age related health problems.

This treatment is called NAD+ IV therapy.

What is NAD+? NAD+ is the coenzyme of Niacin, or also called Vitamin B3. NAD+ levels decline significantly with age , this deficit decreases the body’s ability to retain its youthful, healthy function. It has been shown that by age 50 people have only 50% of the NAD they had in youth.

By age 80 NAD+ levels drop to only 1% -10 %. Deficiency of NAD+ may predispose us to accelerated aging and hence diseases associated with aging such as neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even cancer, among many others. NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide , and is found in all living cells. It is essential to sustaining life. It protects us against factors such as chemical stress, inflammation,as well as mitochondrial and DNA damage. This is why restoring NAD+ is being viewed as a progressive tool to aid longevity, but also to improve certain conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc. It has been very successfully used for almost 20 years for drug and alcohol detoxification.

NAD+ in supplemental form is very unstable and cannot be absorbed by the body, however intravenous administration has yielded very promising results. Researchers have been studying NAD+ since the early 1950’s.

More recently, in 2013, David Sinclair PhD., professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, headed a revolutionary research in the area of NAD+, when he took a group of mice and restored the mitochondria in their muscles to a youthful and healthier state, by injecting the subjects with a molecule which boosted levels of NAD.

How Does NAD+ aid in anti-aging?
First, NAD+ may lengthen telomeres, the repetitive sequence of DNA Strands that cap the ends of chromosomes. The longer the telomeres, the younger the physiological age of the individual and the less likely to develop age related diseases. Second, NAD+ promotes DNA repair. Third, NAD+ modulates immune-cell signaling. This is a critical factor in maintaining defenses against infections and autoimmune diseases. Fourth, NAD+ is a neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that send signals between nerve cells. As such, NAD+ appears essential for maintaining brain health, and may have promising results in neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

Given the role NAD+ plays in such a wide range of critical functions, it is easy to understand why it might have a profound effect on anti-aging health and brain function. In South Florida, only a handful of physicians are trained in NAD+ IV Therapy Treatment. Daniela Dadurian, M.D. is one of the first phsyicians in the West Palm Beach area to offer this therapy. Dr. Dadurian is the founder of the medical practices , MD Beauty Labs Medical Spa & Wellness Center in West Palm Beach and Bioage MD Anti Aging & Wellness Center on Palm Beach Island.

Dr. Dadurian is proud to bring NAD+ IV Therapy Treatment to her practice. Dr. Dadurian has developed her own NAD+ protocol, depending on the condition being treated, with a combination of IV Infusions, appropriate supplements, and other modalities. Patients who are interested in this procedure, will receive a free consultation. Upon this consult patients will obtain an individualized treatment plan according to their goals and needs.
