A NAD+ infusion will feed your cells Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. NAD+ is a catalyst that supports the chemical that moves energy from food into action within our cells, adenosine triphosphate. If your NAD+ levels are low, you may feel sluggish and tired. You may have brain fog or overall weakness. To prepare for an NAD+ infusion, be aware that this form of IV therapy may take more than one drip session. Depending on your condition, you may need to come back a few times a week for another IV. As your NAD+ levels rise, you may actually find that your brain will be more active and your body more energized. If you’ve backed off on exercise because you had no energy, you’ll need to find your running shoes.
Focus On the Long Term
You’ll also want to take a look at your diet. Adenosine triphosphate turns the energy we take in into energy our body can use. This is true for all living creatures. NAD+ helps this transference of energy. If you’re exhausted and have been living on coffee and sugary stuff to keep moving, it’s time to cut back on all the processed sugars and work to consume more natural sugars. If your digestion is sluggish because your fiber intake has been overtaken by white flour products, you need more greens.
Make sure you also up your water intake as you bump up your roughage; overloading your gut with fiber will make you pretty uncomfortable for a few days. If you’ve been living as heathy as you know how and still have no energy, you’re about to enjoy quite a jolt! There is no way to better understand the maxim, “garbage in, garbage out,” than to add a catalyst to your personal energy transfer process. If your system is full of unhealthy foods and stimulants, you may actually feel quite agitated for a time. Work to add long-term energy foods to your dietary routine. Complex carbs, such as whole grain bread, rice and pasta, will provide you with long-term energy for your day. Raw fruits and veggies will give your body a hearty dose of antioxidants that will carry off all the free radicals generated when food becomes energy.
Do pay careful attention to your water intake so you can support your cleansing organs. Fluids will support your body as you shed toxins, and water in particular is crucial to your
As you start to have more energy, it will be easier to make healthy choices. To avoid digestive issues such as constipation, pair dietary bulk with more water and try to get in a walk after each meal; gravity can be of great assistance if your diet hasn’t been as healthy as you like. With that bump in complex carb intake, make sure you also increase your intake of lean proteins. Complex carbs are an ideal energy source, but your body also needs the building blocks of new muscle. Because NAD+ works in every cell of the body to move nutrients and energy effectively, make sure that each meal contains foods that support
- toxin removal, such as free radicals
- muscle growth
- bone density
- mental clarity
Steamed broccoli, fresh blueberries and a juicy orange are a treat for your taste buds and your brain. As they contain simple, natural sugars, you can also easily turn them into the energy you need to manage your day with vigor. As your NAD+ infusions continue, you may find that you’ve been in a fog for longer than you knew. If you’ve been thinking about decluttering, downsizing or making a career change, you may suddenly have the energy you’ve been lacking after a drip session or two.
Do make sure that you review your sleeping area. Your brain may be energized and even distractable after a drip session as your energy transferal process comes back online. Room-darkening shades and a fan may be necessary. Of course, you will need to be still for your session. Bring a book so you can keep your hands as still as possible; you don’t want to be moving your arms and hands while the drip therapy continues. With any luck, you may find it hard to sit still after your first few sessions! Ready to get started? Call us today at 205-352-9141.
