NAD+ or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is one of the most important coenzymes found in all living cells. A chemical reaction occurs at the cellular level using NAD+ in a fundamental biological process that makes cellular life possible. You could live for a few minutes without oxygen, however without NAD+, you would die in a matter of seconds. NAD+ is important for ATP function which is how cells get energy. NAD+, in the oxidized form, uses hydrogen to produce a reduced form call NADH. NAD+ has been found to be very important in scientific research in mice; and has shown to repair damaged DNA, reduce aging and promote longevity. Dr. David Sinclair, a Harvard PhD, has studied NAD+ for many years. Intravenous NAD+ has multiple therapeutic benefits.
Exosomes are micro-vesicles (30-150 nm) that are important in human cellular communication. They are involved in direct cell signaling. Exosomes can be produced from donated human mesenchymal stem cell (MSCs). However, Exosomes are not stem cells, rather are micro-vesicles that contain no nucleus or DNA; but do contain growth factors and cytokine. They may be regarded as the purest form of cellular therapy available because their primary function is to direct tissue and wound healing by activating the patient’s own regenerative cell response. On average, patients will see the effects and experience potential relief within 4 weeks of the initial treatment. Many patients with pain, inflammation, or degenerative disease, experience significant improvement after a single treatment. Exosomes can be delivered by various injection protocols.
High-dose vitamin C
Vitamin C is perhaps one of the most popular supplements used to protect against infection and to stimulate the immune system. Vitamin C supports the function of various immune cells and their ability to protect against infection. Intravenous high-dose vitamin C can range between 5000 mgs to 200,000 mg per day depending on what you are trying to achieve. Vitamin C helps to protect against damage induced by oxidative stress and the accumulation of free radicals. Oxidative stress can have a negative effect on the immune system and any other disease processes. High-dose vitamin C has been shown to significantly improve symptoms in people with severe infections including sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndromes resulting from viral infections.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid has powerful antioxidant properties. Antioxidants find damaged and free radical cells in the body which have developed from environmental toxins, stress, inflammation, aging and other disease processes. Some of the benefits of intravenous Alpha Lipoic Acid include lowering blood sugar levels, reducing inflammation, slowing skin aging, decreasing or slowing memory loss, and improving nerve function. Some studies have also shown that Alpha Lipoic Acid may also help with weight loss.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is made naturally in the body’s cells. However, the level of Glutathione decreases because of aging, stress and toxin exposures. Intravenous Glutathione can reduce oxidative stress. Glutathione may improve psoriasis by helping with inflammation and improve blood sugar regulation. Glutathione may also improve circulation in people with peripheral vascular diseases and help with the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In general, Glutathione helps fight against autoimmune diseases and may also reduce respiratory disease symptoms.
L-carnitine is a nutrient and dietary supplement. It is particularly important in the production of energy by transporting fatty acids into your cell’s mitochondria. Intravenous L-carnitine may help to increase the mitochondrial function which is important in fighting disease and promoting healthy aging. It has been shown to possibly help with weight loss as a dietary supplement. In studies it has been shown to improve muscle function. Some of the other benefits of L-carnitine are increased brain function, improved cardiovascular function, and in managing type 2 diabetes.
L-lysine (or Lysine) is an essential amino acid which is necessary to be supplemented because the body cannot make lysine. Intravenous supplemental lysine can improve cold sores, reduce blood pressure and prevent symptoms of lysine deficiency. Lysine helps the body absorb calcium, iron and zinc. A lack of lysine can produce fatigue, poor concentration, irritability, nausea, red eyes, hair loss, anorexia, anemia, and problems with the reproductive system. Lysine may help with the herpes virus that produces cold sores. Lysine can help prevent the loss of lean muscle mass, relieve anxiety, help with osteoporosis, promote healthy skin growth, and helps shingles. It can also help to moderate blood pressure, improve hair growth, and helps muscle recover from intense exercise workouts.
Myers Cocktail-vitamin B complex
Myers Cocktail contains B vitamins such as B6 and B12, nicotinamide, thiamine, riboflavin, magnesium chloride, calcium gluconate and vitamin C. Intravenous Myers cocktail may help with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and acute muscle spasm.
Zinc can help to boost the immune system and is essential for the immune system to function adequately. Intravenous zinc helps the immune system to fight against viral infection. This is important for infections such as pneumonia. Zinc can also help with respiratory tract infections such as the common cold. The use of zinc has been shown to be beneficial to help treat symptoms of the Coronavirus.
Branch Chain Amino Acid-(BCAA)
Branch Chain Amino Acids include isoleucine, leucine, and valine. Several culture studies show that branch chain amino acids are absolutely essential for lymphocytes to synthesize protein, RNA and DNA and to divide in response to stimulation. Intravenous BCAA has been shown to improve immunity by supporting and enhancing the immune system response to diseases.
Branch Chain Amino Acids can improve muscle loss associated with aging. The aging skeletal muscle loses the ability to respond to anabolic stimuli, including insulin and to a lesser extent, amino acids. Older muscles can still create an anabolic response to the administration of Branch Chain Amino Acid given intravenously.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient essential to the health and functioning of your immune system. Vitamin D supplements can be given orally or by intramuscular injection. Vitamin D enhances the pathogen-fighting effects of monocytes and macrophages — white blood cells that are important parts of your immune defense — and decreases inflammation, which helps promote immune response.
Deficiency of this important vitamin may negatively affect immune function. In fact, low Vitamin D levels are associated with an increased risk of upper respiratory tract infections, including influenza and allergic asthma. Studies have shown that vitamin D supplements may improve response to antiviral treatments in people with certain infections, including Hepatitis C and HIV.
Based upon blood levels, dosage may range from 1,000 and 4,000 IU of supplemental Vitamin D per day and is sufficient for most people, although those with more serious deficiencies often require much higher levels.
Patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom, had lower levels of Vitamin D compared to patients in countries that were not as severely affected, according to one study conducted by Northwestern University.
Be careful not to take too much Vitamin D without doing blood work because it can be toxic at very high levels without monitoring. It is recommended that you consult your physician first for proper dosing.
