While nothing fully turns back the hands of time, advanced treatments like NAD+ therapy, support cellular regeneration, repair DNA, restore brain deterioration, and reduce inflammation, and can go a long way in slowing the aging process. This is one of many treatments available through the care of Leslie S. Gaskill, M.D., in Johns Creek, Georgia. If you’re interested in learning more about this research-backed treatment, call or schedule an appointment online today.
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.
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.
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:
NAD+ therapy actually slows and reverses the aging process, helping you look and feel far younger than your years.
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 gentley.
Many patients use this time for relaxation, a brief nap, of to catch up on their emails. Most patients cherish it as protected time for their health.
Most patients state "This is my protected time to do something for me."
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.
There’s no need for anesthesia or recovery time, and you can resume normal activities immediately after your appointment. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gaskill discusses your treatment plan and the timeline for appointments.
