NAD plus IV Infusion
At UniMed Center, we are proud to offer a wide range of IV infusion therapies to our patients, including high dose vitamin C therapy and immune enhancement infusions. Our cutting-edge IV infusion treatments also include NAD+ IV infusion therapy, which is often recommended to patients who are looking to enhance their brain function and fight off chronic fatigue.
What is NAD+ IV Infusion
NAD and NAD+ are naturally occurring coenzymes in the body that are responsible for aiding in the process of energy production. NAD+ is one of the most important factors for improving mitochondrial function, making the process of turning macronutrients (protein, fats, and carbohydrates) into a usable form of energy that’s more efficient. NAD is also responsible for creating ATP – a molecule that transports energy throughout the body – and aiding the liver in breaking down fats to further create energy as fuel.
NAD+ IV infusion therapy is a minimally invasive treatment in which 250 to 500mg of NAD is delivered directly to the patient’s bloodstream via intravenous (IV) methods. Giving your body this boost of NAD directly into the bloodstream has a greater impact on the body in comparison to taking small-dose supplements over a period of time. The duration of a standard NAD+ IV infusion therapy session may last anywhere between 2 to 4 hours. Patients are able to feel the effects of NAD+ IV infusion therapy almost immediately and continue to benefit from treatments for several days at a time.
Benefits of NAD+ IV Infusion
There are many benefits of receiving NAD+ IV infusion therapy from Dr. Jenny Liu and the expert team at UniMed Center, including the following:
- Improved mental clarity

- Help with antiaging and promoting longevity
It’s important to remember that the benefits of your IV infusion therapy are going to be unique to you and your body’s individual needs. To learn more about whether you’re a good candidate for NAD+ IV infusion therapy, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Jenny Liu. She and our team will be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get back to feeling your best.
According to a medical systematic review conducted in 2020, most studies indicated that NAD+ and NADH along with their precursors had beneficial results on a number of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and dementia.
NAD+ IV infusion therapy has been shown in clinical studies to improve liver function and repair liver damage in animal studies. In fact, in a 2013 animal study published in Neurobiology of Aging, results suggested that the deterioration of cognition was slowed significantly, if not reversed, when given increased levels of NAD.
What to Expect During IV Infusion Therapy
Your IV infusion therapy treatment is your time to sit back and relax. Before your treatment begins, your provider will go over the details of your treatment with you, walking you through the process step-by-step. We will then ask you to sit down in a chair and get comfortable.
To begin your treatment, an IV will be placed into your arm, similar to when you get blood drawn for a blood panel. Either 250 or 500mg of NAD+ will be placed into your IV bag, depending on the treatment Dr. Liu feels is best suited for your individual needs.
The infusion process typically takes less than an hour to complete, during which time patients typically start feeling positive effects. We encourage patients to take this time to read a book or even take a nap.
