NAD+, short for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, has been dubbed the “fountain of youth” formula for its ability to counterbalance the decline of NAD+ levels that come with aging. NAD+ can provide a range of physical and cognitive health benefits. NAD+ promotes cell regeneration, reversing your internal clock, which can increase agility and athletic performance, strengthen the immune system, promote healthy cholesterol and blood pressure, and enhance cognitive functioning which can clear brain fog, and improve mental clarity, memory and concentration. This incredible nutrient has shown to stimulate circulation through nitric oxide production and promote mental well being by facilitating neurotransmitter production, such as dopamine, serotonin, and noradrenaline.

Benefits of NAD+

  1. Promote Cell Regeneration: NAD+ plays a vital role in maintaining cellular health and promoting regeneration. NAD+ therapy has been shown to activate enzymes that repair damaged DNA and promote cell division. This can help regenerate damaged tissues and organs, and may even have anti-aging effects by slowing down cellular degeneration.
  2. Enhance Cognitive Function: NAD+ therapy has been shown to improve cognitive function and memory in animal studies. In humans, NAD+ has been linked to improved mitochondrial function and increased blood flow to the brain, which may contribute to enhanced cognitive performance. This could be beneficial for individuals experiencing cognitive decline, such as those with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.
  3. Promote Cellular Health: NAD+ plays a crucial role in cellular metabolism and can help promote cellular health. NAD+ therapy has been shown to increase levels of antioxidants that protect cells from oxidative stress and free radical damage. It has also been linked to improved mitochondrial function and enhanced energy production, which can help cells function more efficiently.
  4. Enhance Energy Production: As mentioned earlier, NAD+ is involved in the production of ATP, the primary energy source of the body. NAD+ therapy can help boost ATP production and enhance energy levels, which can be beneficial for athletes or individuals who need an energy boost.
  5. Promote Mental Well-being: NAD+ therapy has been linked to improved mood and reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety. This may be due to NAD+’s role in serotonin production, a neurotransmitter that is important for regulating mood and emotional well-being.
  6. Reduce Inflammation: Chronic inflammation has been linked to a wide range of health problems, including heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune disorders. NAD+ therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body, which can help prevent and manage these conditions.
  7. Improve Immune System: NAD+ plays a vital role in immune system function and can help boost the body’s ability to fight infections and diseases. NAD+ therapy has been shown to activate immune cells and increase antibody production, which can help improve overall immune system function.
  8. Support Addiction Recovery: NAD+ therapy has been shown to be effective in supporting addiction recovery by reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. It works by helping to restore balance to the brain’s reward system, which can become disrupted during addiction.
  9. Increase Physical Agility: NAD+ plays a crucial role in the production of mitochondria, which are responsible for producing energy in cells. As we age, mitochondrial function declines, leading to decreased physical performance and agility. NAD+ therapy can help boost mitochondrial function, leading to improved physical performance and agility. This can be particularly beneficial for athletes or individuals looking to maintain an active lifestyle as they age.
  10. Anti-Aging Effects: NAD+ therapy has been linked to anti-aging effects, including improved skin elasticity and reduced wrinkles. This may be due to NAD+’s role in cellular regeneration and DNA repair, which can help slow down the aging process.


NAD+ is naturally occurring in the human body and is found in every cell in your body, However, this co-enzyme decreases in level as we age. NAD+ is involved in hundreds of metabolic processes like cellular energy and mitochondrial health. It is hard at work in the cells of humans, animals, yeast,  bacteria and plants. The dietary vitamin B3, which encompasses nicotinamide, nicotinic acid and nicotinamide riboside, is precursor to the coenzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+).

There are foods believed to naturally boost our body’s NAD+ levels. These include:

  • Whole grains. Whole grains are rich in vitamin B3
  • Milk. Cow’s milk is an excellent source of Nicotinamide riboside
  • Fish. Sardines, salmon, and tuna
  • Yeast. Nicotinamide riboside is also found in yeast
  • Green Vegetables. Especially peas and asparagus
  • Mushrooms. Mushrooms, in particular the crimini mushrooms


Increasing NAD+ levels in the body has been found by scientists to reduce and even reverse signs of aging, Outcomes have shown that NAD+ has the potential to restore cells to their youthful state and turn back the biological clock. Put simply, NAD+ may turn back your cells’ biological clock.

Harvard researchers have demonstrated that NAD+ can reverse reverse aging biomarkers. Studies in yeast and worms have shown that higher NAD+ levels extend life span and prevent metabolic changes of aging. While it is a considerable leap in terms of evolution and biology to move from yeast and worms to mammals, studies in mammals have also revealed that NAD+ levels are crucial for healthy cellular and mitochondrial functioning, as well as aging.

A Harvard study on 22-month-old mice with multiple signs of aging, including mitochondrial dysfunction, found that increasing NAD+ levels could significantly reverse aging processes. Remarkably, key aging markers such as insulin resistance, inflammation, and muscle wasting, which are all processes commonly associated as a normal part of aging, were reduced to that of 6-month-old mice.

Given that NAD+ is essential for cellular function and decreases with age, many scientists believe that maintaining healthy and youthful NAD+ levels is a vital process in slowing, stopping, or even reversing aging.

NAD+ THERAPY at Slate Medspa

NAD+ therapy can be administered through different modalities at Slate Medspa, including intravenous (IV) drip, intramuscular (IM) injection, and nasal spray.


IV drip is the most common method of administering NAD+ therapy. It involves infusing NAD+ directly into the bloodstream via a needle inserted into a vein in the arm. IV drip allows for the highest concentration of NAD+ to be delivered quickly, making it the most efficient way to increase NAD+ levels in the body.


IM injection involves injecting NAD+ into a muscle, usually in the thigh or buttocks. This method is less invasive than IV drip and may be a good alternative for individuals who are uncomfortable with needles. However, it may take longer for the NAD+ to be absorbed and reach the bloodstream.


Nasal spray is a newer method of NAD+ therapy administration. It involves spraying NAD+ directly into the nasal cavity, where it is absorbed through the nasal mucosa. This method is non-invasive and may be more convenient for some individuals. However, it may not be as effective as IV drip or IM injection in increasing NAD+ levels.
