Anxiety is a natural response to environmental stimuli that produces a stress response in the body. While taking benzodiazepines help eliminate the symptoms of stress, addictive tolerance can quickly develop. NAD+ therapy address the source of the anxiety and addiction.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressant but are also effective for anxiety symptoms. This type of medication allows the serotonin to be more widely available in the brain, which is associated with improved mood.
Numerous scientific studies are emerging about the therapeutic brain restoration benefits of NAD+ therapy. One such study revealed how an NAD+-dependent enzyme, sirtuin 1, is able to reduce anxiety by enhancing serotonin within the brain. In more technical terms, activation of sirtuin 1 by NAD+ allows transcription of genes and thus mediation of anxiety. NAD+ therapy has the unique ability to rebalance the brain naturally.
