Sobriety and Satiety: Is NAD+ the Answer?

Post by Fred » Sat May 16, 2020 4:02 am

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an essential pyridine nucleotide that has garnered considerable interest in the last century due to its critical role in cellular processes associated with energy production, cellular protection against stress and longevity.

Research in NAD+ has been reinvigorated by recent findings that components of NAD+ metabolism and NAD-dependent enzymes can influence major signalling processes associated with the neurobiology of addiction.

These studies implicate raising intracellular NAD+ levels as a potential target for managing and treating addictive behaviour and reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms in patients with food addiction and/or substance abuse.

Since clinical studies showing the use of NAD+ for the treatment of addiction are limited, this review provides literature evidence that NAD+ can influence the neurobiology of addiction and may have benefits as an anti-addiction intervention.

This looks promising. I have seen NAD+ used for addiction recovery and have spoken to many patients. They all have the same story. NAD+ IVs have completely eliminated any cravings for the addicted product. They also state that it softens the withdrawl symptoms. More scientific studies need to be done in order to understand how this works.
