How NAD+ Prevents Muscle Deterioration

IV Drip

At Greenberg Regenerative Medicine, we take pride in finding solutions for our patients suffering from chronic pain. With advances in science and regenerative medicine treatments, we are able to treat muscle deterioration and help our patients live pain-free. 

What is Muscle Deterioration? 

As we age, our body changes in more ways than we realize. Some may notice that it is becoming harder to complete everyday tasks such as carrying groceries or moving around easily which is caused by deterioration. Overtime, the body’s muscles begin to break down and/or weaken which may be caused from a lack of use on an everyday basis. 

As we know, exercise and taking care of your overall health has many benefits. It is especially important to continue to exercise after the age of 30 because muscles deteriorate at a rate of 3%-8% per decade. Muscle deterioration can be frustrating for those experiencing these new changes in their bodies, but as science advances we wonder: Can these changes be reversed? The Greenberg team sure thinks so! 

The Connection Between Muscle Deterioration & Degenerative Muscle Disease

As research on muscle deterioration continues, researchers are finding that muscle deterioration may not only be caused from lack of muscle use and are finding an increasing connection linked to muscle diseases. In other words, it has been found that protein aggregates that are associated with aging can be blocked in the skeletal muscles to prevent muscle deterioration. These aggregates may also damage mitochondria, which can weaken the strength of muscles. At Greenberg Regenerative Medicine, we are always looking for ways to improve the health and well-being of our clients. Dr. Greenberg believes this correlation contributes to the aging process, but also can lead to major issues ranging from heart failure to falling and fracturing a hip. With the help of NAD+ treatments, muscle deterioration is possible in addition to improving overall body function. 

NAD+ & Its Benefits

NAD+ is a coenzyme found in all living cells which stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is known for its anti-aging properties and has been effective in promoting health and prolonging lifespan. Dr. Greenberg notes that through intravenous supplementation of this coenzyme, NAD+ can benefit your body in many ways by improving its functions and overall wellness.

Not only do NAD+ treatments prevent muscle deterioration, but can also repair your body and mind by providing relief to concussions, fatigue, fluoroquinolone toxicity, neurological diseases, anxiety, and depression just to name a few. Dr. Greenberg believes that these treatments can also improve your overall health by increasing mental sharpness and energy, boosting metabolism, replenishing brain cells lost due to substance abuse, improving mitochondrial function, and speeding up injury recovery. 

Can NAD+ Treat Muscle Deterioration?

Our team has seen firsthand how difficult muscle deterioration can be and how it affects daily activities for our patients, which is why we’re excited to offer NAD+ as a treatment relief for patients. 

If you’re skeptical if the treatment actually works, medical researchers have studied the use of NAD+ to treat muscle Deterioration on worms and found that when treated, the worm’s age related protein was reduced and overall lifespan had improved. When tested on humans and mice, they found that both had the same positive results, as humans protein and mitochondrial homeostasis improved while  amyloid aggregates improved in the mice.

In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community, any patient that enters the building will be screened for the virus by having their temperature taken and filling out a questionnaire from Main Line Health. Once inside the office, patients will be asked to wash their hands immediately and may receive another temperature check. All patients will be able to maintain a safe social distance from others, as only one patient is seen per hour. The Greenberg Regenerative staff wears their masks at all times, and also ensures that all safety protocols and guidelines per Main Line Health and the CDC are being followed. Additionally, Dr. Greenberg is fully vaccinated, which further reduces possible COVID-19 transmission. At the end of the appointment, patients have the option to take a Greenberg Regenerative Medicine hand sanitizer to allow them to remain safe and healthy.
