Nicotinamide riboside is an alternative form of vitamin B3. When you consume vitamin B3, your body converts it into NAD+, a molecule that plays an important role in everything from converting food to energy to repairing damaged DNA. Your NAD+ levels naturally decline as you age. Unfortunately, low NAD+ levels are also linked to a variety of serious health problems including fibromyalgia, dementia, and arthritis. At her practice in Johns Creek, Georgia, board-certified physician Leslie S. Gaskill, M.D., proudly offers NAD+ therapy to treat a number of physical and neurological ailments.

NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a helper molecule or coenzyme produced inside your body. NAD+ helps fortify your cells’ defense systems and regulates your body’s internal clock. Your body also uses NAD+ to create energy and restore damaged cells.
As you get older, your body naturally produces less NAD+. Clinical studies suggest a drop in NAD+ levels increases your risk of chronic illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, and Alzheimer’s disease. Interestingly, studies also suggest that increasing levels of NAD+ may help counter signs of aging and lower your risk of certain health problems.
NAD+ IV therapy is a holistic, alternative treatment that introduces NAD+ directly into your bloodstream. NAD+ IV therapy bypasses your digestive system, providing a faster and more effective outcome than traditional oral treatments like vitamins and supplements.
In addition, NAD+ IV therapy optimizes NAD+ levels throughout your body, boosting cell production and your energy levels.
NAD+ IV therapy is incredibly versatile. Dr. Gaskill regularly prescribes NAD+ IV therapy to treat:
NAD+ IV therapy can also relieve symptoms associated with certain mental health problems including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The only way to determine if you’re a good candidate for NAD+ IV therapy is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Gaskill. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your symptoms, Dr. Gaskill can formulate a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs.
The number of NAD+ IV therapy appointments you’ll need depends on the severity of your symptoms and your goals for treatment. For example, if you’re suffering from fatigue, one treatment session may be enough to help you feel better. For chronic conditions like arthritis or diabetes, multiple treatments may be necessary. Dr. Gaskill typically recommends a series of appointments spaced two to three weeks apart.
NAD+ IV therapy provides a safe, effective, and all-natural way to counter the natural aging process. If you’re interested in learning more, call or schedule an appointment online at Leslie S. Gaskill, MD, today.
