What is NAD+?

NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a coenzyme that is found in all living cells. It plays a crucial role in cellular metabolism and energy production. NAD+ is essential for various biological processes such as DNA repair, Age –related Changes, mitochondrial function, cell division, and the immune response.

What Are the Potential Health Benefits of NAD+?

NAD+ Research Highlights
NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) plays a vital role in various physiological functions. Here are some of its key benefits for human health:

  • Cellular Metabolism: NAD+ is crucial for metabolic processes, helping to convert nutrients into energy.
  • DNA Repair: It participates in repairing damaged DNA, maintaining cellular health and function.
  • Regulation of Circadian Rhythms: NAD+ levels fluctuate in a daily cycle, helping to regulate sleep-wake patterns.
  • Sirtuin Activation: Sirtuins are a family of proteins that depend on NAD+ and are involved in aging, inflammation, and stress resistance.
  • Mitochondrial Function: Adequate NAD+ is essential for the health of mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell.
  • Protection Against Neurodegeneration: It may offer neuroprotective benefits, potentially guarding against age-related degenerative diseases.
  • Age-Related Changes: As NAD+ levels decline with age, supplementation may help to ameliorate age-associated metabolic decline and support healthy aging

Safety Profile of NAD+ Micro-Injectables: What You Need to Know

NAD+ micro-injectables are engineered to be as safe as insulin injections, offering a secure method for elevating your NAD+ levels. Because NAD+ is a naturally occurring molecule in the body, it is easily recognized and processed, making the micro-injectable format both effective and safe for use. For detailed guidance on how to safely administer NAD+ micro-injectables, refer to our comprehensive User Guide.

How Often Should I Use NAD+?

If you're new to NAD+, start with a microinjection once a day for the first three days. Following this introductory phase, switch to an every-other-day schedule. Remember to adhere strictly to the advised dosage and use your NAD+ solely for your personal regimen.

How to Clear Air Bubbles from Your NAD+ Vial?

To remove air bubbles from your NAD+ vial, use these steps:

  1. Tap the Vial Gently: Secure the vial between your thumb and forefinger, and tap the sides using your other hand, making bubbles float upwards.
  2. Flick for Stubborn Bubbles: For persistent bubbles, flick the vial lightly with your finger to shift them.
  3. Swirl for Movement: Swirl the vial gently in a circular pattern to move bubbles to the top.
  4. Rest if Needed: Let the vial stand still if bubbles don't move, so they can rise up in time

What to Do if You Take Too Much NAD+?

If you use too much NAD+, don't worry; it's made to be safe. But, your body might not use the entire extra. It's usually okay, but if you feel odd, it's best to talk to a doctor.

Is It Safe to Share Your NAD+ Kits?

For health safety, your personal home therapy kit should not be shared. Cross-contamination risks from shared vials or syringes could compromise the treatment's effectiveness. Dedicated kits for each individual are crucial for the integrity and success of the therapy.

Will I Feel Any Immediate Effects After Administering NAD+?

While most people don't experience adverse side effects from NAD+ therapy, many do report feeling more alert and energized after administration. The experience can vary from person to person, so it's best to be aware of how your own body reacts to the supplement.

What Distinguishes NAD+ from NADH?

NAD+ and NADH represent two molecular states: NAD+ is the active, oxidized form, offering superior bioavailability and wider health advantages, while NADH is its reduced counterpart with a different impact profile. For those in the UK and Europe, NAD+ AT HOME stands out as the sole self-administered micro-injectable option, affording the benefits of NAD+ therapy conveniently, without clinic visits or IV infusions.
Understanding these differences can help you make an informed decision about which form of the molecule best suits your health goals.
