NAD+, short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme derived from vitamin B3 that works to help the cells in our body create energy. It plays a big role in supporting the proper function of organs like our brain, heart, lungs, and skin. As we age, we begin to observe some physical and cognitive decline, which is a sign our bodies’ NAD+ levels are dropping. While we cannot rewind time, there are things we can do to slow down the effects of aging and boost energy levels to live the healthiest and most vibrant life we deserve.

What is NAD+?
Often referred to as the “helper molecule”, NAD+ is utilized in approximately 500 different enzymatic reactions, making it one of the most common molecules in the human body. (1) Enzymes help the body complete biological processes and coenzymes are non-protein components that enable enzymes to function optimally in the body. NAD+ therapy involves administering NAD+, a coenzyme found in every cell of the body. NAD+ IV drips deliver NAD+ into your bloodstream. This allows the active ingredients to avoid degradation because they bypass the digestive system, where the digestive acids are.
Which Type of NAD+ Therapy is Right for Me?
IV therapy takes around 3 hours to complete, so if your lifestyle calls for a more on-the-go type of treatment, we also offer subcutaneous injections. Through this, patients are able to self-administer NAD+ in the comfort of their own homes, on their own schedules. Injections are administered into fatty tissue, which facilitates the active ingredient into the bloodstream
Our patients have noted many benefits of NAD+ therapy. The most prominent include:
- Increased Energy Levels
- Better Workouts
- Improved Sleep Quality
- Boosted Metabolism
- Better Weight Control
- Improvements in Cognitive Function
- Reduced Brain Fog
NAD+ is a key part of the energy metabolism process. (2) It plays a crucial role in many cellular processes, including energy production and DNA repair. But as we age, our bodies produce less NAD+, which can lead to a variety of health issues. Therefore, anyone who struggles with age-related conditions such as having a foggy memory is a good candidate for NAD+ therapy. Additionally, patients with the following conditions may find it beneficial.
- Chronic Fatigue
- Anxiety and Depression
- Neurodegenerative Diseases
- Chronic Pain
- Poor Memory and Concentration
At Evolved Medical, we offer NAD+ therapy as a cutting-edge treatment to help our patients achieve optimal health and wellness. If you’re interested in learning more about this innovative therapy, the first step is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Rajguru at our Walnut Creek office.
During your consultation, Dr. Rajguru will review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and evaluate your overall health to determine if NAD+ therapy is right for you. Dr. Rajguru will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals. Whether you’re seeking relief from chronic pain, looking to boost your cognitive function, or simply want to feel more energized and revitalized, NAD+ therapy may be the solution you’ve been searching for.
We are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care and support throughout their journey to optimal health. Contact our clinic at (925) 433-8444 (call or text) to schedule a free consultation.
IV Drip Therapy
During an in-office NAD+ therapy session, Dr. Rajguru will administer the treatment intravenously. The duration and frequency of treatment vary depending on the patient’s specific needs and condition.
NAD+ therapy works by administering intravenous infusions of NAD+ directly into the bloodstream. The infusion process takes approximately 3 hours, during which patients may experience mild fatigue. However, these side effects are temporary and typically subside within a few hours.
Subcutaneous NAD+ Injections
IV therapy can be time-consuming. That’s why we offer an alternative to in-office treatment. Self-administered NAD+ injections are easy and convenient. We will provide you with the necessary supplies and instructions to administer the injection at home. Most patients report feeling more energetic, mentally sharp, and experiencing better sleep quality after receiving NAD+ injections.
What Happens After Treatment?
After undergoing NAD+ therapy, it is possible to experience some mild side-effects such as fatigue, headache, and nausea. However, these symptoms typically dissipate within minutes after your treatment. Dr. Rajguru recommends staying hydrated and getting plenty of rest during this time. You may resume your daily activities immediately following your treatment. After the treatment you may experience benefits such as:
- Relief from insomnia
- Boosted energy and relief from chronic fatigue
- Improved brain fog and greater mental clarity
- Improved mood
- Improved cognitive function
- Better physical recovery and workouts

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men and women is a treatment that uses natural hormones to balance the levels in the body. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones have a molecular structure identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body, making them safer and more effective. Dr. Rajguru conducts thorough testing to measure hormone levels and tailor the treatment plan to each patient’s unique needs.
Growth Hormone Peptide Therapy
Growth Hormone Peptide Therapy for men and women is a groundbreaking treatment that targets the natural production of human growth hormone. This treatment can help combat the negative effects of aging and improve overall health and wellness. These peptides are administered through injections and work by activating the pituitary gland to produce more growth hormone. This results in a range of benefits, including increased muscle growth, improved bone density, enhanced immune function, weight loss, fat reduction, and anti-aging effects.
