Is an NAD+ Patch or NAD+ IV Therapy Right for You?

If you deal with chronic pain that causes inflammation, it can be frustrating to find the right solution. While there are many different care options available, everyone is different, and you need to consider what treatment is best for you. For example, you may not like how prescribed medications make you feel, or you are not finding long-term relief with physical therapy. There are other options, including NAD+ supplementation.

NAD+ patches or NAD+ IV therapy are two ways in which you can get NAD+ into your bloodstream quickly. On top of helping people with chronic pain, NAD+ patches may also increase cognitive function, boost energy and metabolism, and of course, reduce pain and inflammation.

Oral NAD+ precursors (NMN, NR, and NAM) are available via the oral route; they can be poorly absorbed and not as effective as raising blood levels of NAD vs IV route or patch. Here, we’ll outline the differences between an NAD+ patch and NAD+ IV therapy so you can decide if either treatment is right for you.

What is NAD+?

NAD+ stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. This is a coenzyme essential to metabolism and works as an oxidizing agent. NAD+ can be found in every cell in your body. You can’t live without it. But as you age, your body slows its NAD+ production. When your body produces less NAD+, you begin to age and become more susceptible to illness.

When you start treatment with NAD+ patches or IV therapy, you’re giving your body more of an essential nutrient that it used to make on its own. It’s a perfectly healthy, natural way to give your body an immunity boost, slow the effects of aging, and help you feel better.

NAD+ Patches

NAD+ patches can be purchased from Hydration Room. This is a great option if you want your body to receive NAD+ from the comfort of your home.

Each patch contains a dose of 600 mg of NAD+. These patches use an iontophoresis mechanism that utilizes negative and positive charges together to send the NAD+ throughout your body.

You simply stick the patch to a part of your body that doesn’t have much hair, such as your rib cage, upper forearm, or lower back. The patch has a battery that lasts four hours, which is how long you are advised to wear it.

Hydration Room recommends wearing two patches a week, but for some patients more are recommended. If you are someone who is in addiction recovery, deals with a lot of stress, or suffers from chronic pain, you may be recommended to wear patches more often.

NAD+ IV Therapy

One alternative to NAD+ patches is NAD+ IV therapy. With NAD+ IV therapy, you come into a Hydration Room clinic and a nurse administers an IV infusion of NAD+. The NAD+ enters straight into your bloodstream.

The IV works as a slow drip, so it is more time-consuming than a patch. However, it is the most effective way (up to 100% absorption) to receive a dose of NAD+ and your body can put it to use right away.
