While not universally enjoyable, NAD IV therapy brings bliss to some, including Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber. Featured in episode five of The Kardashians on Disney+, the friends underwent this intravenous drip therapy, sharing their experiences with the cameras.
Kendall, a self-proclaimed hypochondriac, finds comfort and happiness in activities like these. After her COVID diagnosis, she credited IV therapy as a significant factor in her recovery. Hailey, jokingly declaring her commitment to NAD for life, embraces it for anti-aging purposes. But what exactly is NAD therapy, and can it truly deliver the health benefits claimed by these celebrities? Let’s find out.
NAD IV therapy administers nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a natural coenzyme aiding cellular energy production and overall health. Through an intravenous drip, NAD, along with personalized combinations of vitamins and minerals, is absorbed for potential benefits such as alleviating hangovers, supporting virus recovery, combating jet lag, boosting energy levels, and promoting healthy skin and hair. While oral intake is an option, intravenous delivery is preferred for enhanced effectiveness.
The recent surge in NAD IV therapy’s popularity can be attributed to celebrity endorsements. Rihanna, Kate Upton, and Cindy Crawford have praised its healing benefits, despite limited clinical research backing these claims. Nevertheless, for individuals without significant underlying health conditions, the therapy appears safe. Available in Australia at a cost of $500-$700, it should be viewed as a supplement to a healthy lifestyle, rather than a treatment for specific conditions.
