Anti Aging Treatment

What is NAD+?

NAD+ is short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Present in all of your cells, it’s a coenzyme that mitigates the damage caused by chemical stress, DNA, inflammation, and failing mitochondria. NAD+ is also essential in converting nutrients into energy and is necessary for human life. 

By the time you reach the age of 50, you have approximately half the NAD+ you had in your younger years. Supplementation is essential for repairing and restoring your cells, and slowing the aging process.  


How does NAD+ affect the aging process?

A growing body of research supports the use of NAD+ therapy in slowing the aging process. 

As you age, every part of your body is affected, even at the cellular level. Many of those changes are apparent on the external parts of your body, but aging alters many functions you can’t see and are usually unaware of, like metabolizing food and cellular turnover. 


What are the benefits of NAD+ supplementation?

One of the most powerful things NAD+ does to slow the aging process is lengthening your telomeres, which are the tiny protective caps found at the ends of your chromosomes. As you age, those caps naturally shorten, but NAD+ therapy reverses that process. 

Some additional benefits of NAD+ therapy are:

  • Improved mental clarity
  • Improvements in appearance, including wrinkles and skin tone
  • Better brain health
  • Enhanced neurological function
  • Less fatigue
  • Improved muscle function

NAD+ therapy actually slows and reverses the aging process, helping you look and feel far younger than your years. 


Is NAD+ therapy painful?

There is no pain associated with NAD+ therapy. The treatments are administered intravenously, and require an IV line. Dr. Gaskill and her team have the skill and training needed to start your IV line quickly and without discomfort. 

If needles make you squeamish, you’re more than welcome to listen to music or a podcast during your sessions. 

Once your IV line is in place, the NAD+ solution is added. Drip by drip, the powerful solution enters your bloodstream and immediately goes to work. You’ll notice improvements right away, and those changes will continue to develop as time goes on. 

There’s no need for anesthesia or recovery time, and you can resume normal activities immediately after your appointment. Most men and women need between 4-14 short daily NAD+ infusion treatments. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gaskill discusses your treatment plan and the timeline for appointments.
