NAD+ IV Treatment: What to Expect

Have you heard about NAD IV therapy but are nervous about trying it. Well don't worry, in this article we will walk you through the process of what to expect by your NAD IV therapy treatment. 

But first let’s understand what NAD IV therapy is. 

What is NAD Therapy?

NAD IV therapy is a treatment that makes use of a coenzyme (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) that’s found in all living cells. In order to be healthy all cells throughout the entire body need NAD and today, many people use NAD IV therapy as a biohack to prevent illness and keep their internal organs functioning optimally. 

NAD IV therapy is used to slow the aging process, promote better overall health and athletic performance, enhance mental abilities, and even to boost resistance to addictions and addictive behaviors. It works at the molecular level with DNA to make sure each cell has plenty of energy.


NAD IV therapy is one of many valuable IV treatment options that you can use to overcome illness, addictions, or to improve your athletic performance. But before you decide which type of therapy is right for you, you need to know what NAD does for the body.

What does NAD help with?

NAD is an essential substance that every cell in your body needs in order to be healthy. When NAD levels get too low, the aging process speeds up, mental processes slow down, and an individual’s general health can decline. NAD Therapy can restore cellular health to significantly slow the aging process, promote neurological functioning, and boost general health.


NAD is produced naturally in the body, but if your nutrition doesn’t include the proper amount or type of nutrients, NAD+ levels can get low. The older a person is, the less NAD+ they have circulating in their body, so many people do NAD IV Therapy to promote longevity, but there are a number of benefits to this type of treatment and its an appropriate treatment choice for people of all ages. Below are some of the reasons why you might decide to have NAD IV Therapy:


  •       Enhanced neurological function


The brain needs plenty of oxygen and simple sugars to do its job and function at its best. Though the brain is small compared to the rest of the body, it eats up about 20% of the body’s entire supply of oxygen! 

NAD is an important part of the energy-production equation for the brain. Without enough NAD, the brain’s oxygen requirements can’t be met and brain function declines. NAD IV Therapy can help increase focus, mental clarity, and protect the brain from neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.


If you want to increase your productivity at work or just think more clearly and boost your intellectual abilities, NAD IV Therapy is a good choice.


  •       Maintenance or restoration of muscle function or strength


NAD enhances blood flow and increases cellular energy levels, which has a positive impact on strength, coordination, and athletic ability. 

It doesn’t matter whether you’re doing NAD+ treatments to keep muscles strong to prevent premature aging or if you’re a young athlete wanting to get the most out of your muscles, NAD can help! This substance will help increase energy levels while improving DNA repair in muscle tissues.


  •       Weight loss promotion


NAD IV Therapy plays a role in chemical reactions that can boost metabolism in the body by efficiently converting food into energy.


  •       Enhance liver health


The liver is an important organ in the body and it’s very sensitive to declining levels of NAD. Individuals who have over-stressed their liver due to alcohol over-consumption or a high-fat diet can benefit from NAD Therapy to support healthy liver function.


  •       Fatigue reduction and improved energy levels


NAD amps up cellular batteries to reduce physical fatigue. This substance increases the levels of certain molecules in the body that improve energy levels and recovery after physical exertion.


  •       Lifespan extension


Doctors and scientists have been investigating the effects of NAD Therapy on aging for years and research has demonstrated positive results particularly on blood vessels and the cardiovascular system, brain, and nervous system. NAD+ promotes DNA repair which typically declines with age. Regular maintenance doses of NAD+ have been shown to promote cellular survival and the prevention of cancer.


  •       Hangover Treatment


NAD+ can correct the neurotransmitter imbalances that result from a heavy night of partying. Many people use NAD Therapy to protect the liver and get on with their lives after a weekend of fun. But in fact, NAD+ Therapy can even reduce addictive behaviors and many of the withdrawal and detox symptoms that occur after years of consuming the “hard stuff”.

Now there’s no need to suffer through symptoms like headaches, fatigue, nausea, insomnia, and cravings. Our NAD hangover IV therapy can help you get on with your life without suffering the negative consequences caused by alcohol or certain drugs.

What is in the NAD IV therapy IV bags?

NAD IV therapy bags consist of a mixture of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) and saline. Therapy bags may contain either 500mg or 1000mg of NAD depending on which condition or issue you are treating. In addition to the NAD and saline, you may add any of the following components to increase the health value of a single infusion:


  •       Glutathione - $70

Glutathione is a combination of the amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamate, and glycine. It is used for reparation of cells and DNA, detoxification, and reversal of oxidative cell damage. Adding this to an NAD infusion would be good for individuals receiving treatment for drug abuse, and it is also great for individuals with degenerative brain diseases, diabetes, and liver disease.

  •       Vitamin C - $60

Vitamin C is an excellent addition to an NAD infusion for anti-aging, detoxification, and immunity boosting. It is an essential nutrient that can help grow and repair body tissues, and is therefore also good for athletes looking to repair their muscles and tissues. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means that it can help repair oxidative damage in the body that is due to illness, excessive stress, or age.

  •       Vitamin B12 - $60

Also called cobalamin, vitamin B12 is an especially important nutrient for individuals over the age of 50 and for people who are vegetarian or vegan. 

If you are receiving NAD infusions for anti-aging or chronic fatigue, this may be a particularly valuable addition. It is also valuable for building more red blood cells and for bone support. Regular infusions of vitamin B12 (at least on an annual basis), in addition to or apart from NAD, are absolutely crucial for vegans, individuals over the age of 50 years, and anyone suffering from any form of dementia.

  •       1000ml normal saline - $65

Saline is used to rehydrate and rejuvenate. An infusion of additional normal saline combined with an NAD infusion is good for people who are trying to recover from an intense partying session, and it’s also good for anti-aging and increased athletic performance. Increased hydration is always an excellent way to boost physical and mental acuity and performance.

Boosting levels of vitamin C and glutathione is a great way to promote general health as well as the production of smooth, glowing skin and hair but these two substances can also promote and enhance immunity as well. This is an excellent addition to IV therapy to lessen the symptoms of cold or flu or to help build immunity during times when you need it most.


  •       Taurine - $65


Taurine is an amino acid and a semi-essential nutrient that’s recommended as a therapeutic agent in a variety of health situations involving issues with the circulatory system, muscles, central nervous system, mitochondrial diseases, lactic acidosis, strokes and stroke-like episodes, diabetes and other metabolic diseases, inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, and more.


NAD IV Therapy with customized supplements added to promote better health has an excellent safety profile. If you’re considering this type of therapy, you can learn more about scientific studies demonstrating its safety and effectiveness below.

Is NAD IV Therapy safe?

NAD therapy is not FDA approved, however the FDA does consider it to be a safe treatment when administered in doses less than 2 grams per day. The FDA has acknowledged this therapy’s efficacy for the treatment of benzodiazepine dependence, opiate withdrawal, prescription medication withdrawal, and post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS). It is also acknowledged to be effective and safe in reducing the effects of chronic fatigue.


For most people, the main complaint associated with receiving NAD therapy is the risk of minor pain or discomfort at the injection site. Some people report slight flu-like symptoms immediately after receiving an NAD infusion, but these feelings pass quickly and afterwards patients report feeling clearer and more energized. 

Studies agree that NAD therapy along with other related nutrient infusion therapies have little to no adverse effect and present almost entirely positive, beneficial effects.


NAD IV Therapy is safe and effective and results are felt almost instantaneously for more individuals.

How long does NAD IV therapy take to work?

NAD therapy is usually administered over a period of a few days for the best results, but most people experience increased mental clarity and improved physical sensations after only one infusion. The effects of NAD are noticeable almost immediately in most cases. However, for certain disorders or treatment of certain issues, there are results that may take some more time to notice. For example, in the case of anti-aging treatment, the effects of NAD IV therapy may take a few infusions before they become truly noticeable.


The mental and emotional benefits of NAD therapy are nearly instantaneous. To get the kind of results possible with NAD therapy, you must allot somewhere between a few hours for one treatment to a few months of regular treatments depending on the health issues that you want to treat..

How long does NAD IV Therapy last?

NAD therapy lasts between 2-4 hours per infusion. The duration of the therapy can be anywhere between a few days to a few months depending on the issues you are looking to treat. It may also occasionally be administered as an independent treatment done as a booster after intense periods of exercise or partying. Use it to recover from acute illness, surgery, hangovers, or more do more intensive treatments to battle cancer, diabetes, congestive heart failure, or more serious health issues.



How should you use NAD IV Therapy?

NAD IV therapy can be used in a few different ways. The manner in which NAD therapy is administered depends largely on the issue being treated and what you, the patient, hope to achieve. For most conditions, treatment is administered as one 2-4 hour-long infusion every day for 4-10 days, with infusions being 500mg - 1000mg each. However, there are some specific situations where a slightly different protocol may be particularly helpful.


For example, Reset IV provides NAD therapy as an anti-aging treatment in the form of three total infusions, with one infusion being administered every other week. After the first three NAD treatments, a maintenance infusion is performed monthly. Anti-aging treatments with NAD are administered with 500mg of NAD per infusion.

Neurological disorders and issues are treated differently as well. Over the course of 5-7 days, the patient will receive a daily infusion of 500mg of NAD. They may also choose to receive the treatment every other day over the course of 10-14 days.


Before receiving your NAD treatment, you may consult with a physician at Reset IV to develop a personalized treatment plan for your individual situation. Because NAD is such a versatile intravenous therapy, consultation with a knowledgeable physician is important so that you can receive the maximum quality results commensurate with the costs involved.

How much does NAD IV therapy cost?

The Reset IV NAD+ IV therapy treatment costs $799 by itself. This package includes the saline and NAD intravenous solution which is administered over the course of 2-4 hours. You may add extra components to your NAD+ solution treatment if desired for an additional fee. Extra components vary in cost, ranging from $60 to $119. This is the cost per infusion, and therefore a full NAD therapy treatment with Reset IV can range from $2,400 to $6,000, depending on what you are treating and the number of infusions you receive.
