The science behind the NAD+ DETOX programme
An innovative new approach to detox is changing perceptions and breaking new ground within rehab and recovery. For people living with alcohol and drug addiction, getting through detox can be a significant obstacle in beginning the journey to long-term recovery. Reducing withdrawal symptoms and the time taken to begin feeling a physical, mental and emotional improvement could make a considerable difference to an individual’s chances of success.
The NAD+ DETOX programme presents a new way to detox that’s quicker and cuts cravings. It works by delivering a tailored infusion known as NAD+ coenzyme intravenously via a drip. Several infusions are given over a few days with most people feeling clearer and brighter in just 5 days. Studies have shown an impressive decrease in cravings helping to prevent relapse. This development is extremely important as relapse in the early stages of sobriety can be common.
How does NAD+ DETOX work?
NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a simple metabolic coenzyme of niacin and a type of vitamin B (B3) that aids energy production within your body. Research has shown that people living with addiction have a NAD+ deficiency and that alcoholism can reduce NAD+ levels further still. NAD+ regenerates and rejuvenates the body by:
- Supporting the restructure and repair of the body’s cells (as NAD+ is a natural metabolic coenzyme of vitamin B3 which is found in every cell of the human body)
- Reacting with oxygen to form energy to fuel major organs including the brain and heart
- Replenishing depleted stores of NAD+ (common in people living with alcohol and some forms of drug addiction) to significantly reduce cravings
- Restoring brain function for increased clarity and lucidity
You’ll feel stronger and more able to look towards recovery within just a few days. Most people feel less tired and cognitive functions and concentration skills are restored.
Other uses of NAD+
As NAD+ stimulates cell repair and growth within the body, it’s also used to treat other disorders, diseases and conditions. The therapy is delivered intravenously in the same way as it is for alcohol and drug addiction. From neurological disorders to chronic fatigue syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease to bipolar disorder – this natural therapy has the potential to improve so many people’s lives with no side effects.
The detox that could make the difference
If you (or a loved one) are living with alcohol or drug addiction, then the NAD+ DETOX programme could be the fresh start that you need. For drug addiction, NAD+ is particularly effective for the detox of amphetamines (speed, uppers), opiates (heroin, morphine and many painkillers) and benzopines (tranquillisers). If you’ve tried to give up and relapsed in the past then NAD+ offers a new opportunity to begin building a better future.
