WRAP YOUR BRAINS AROUND THIS – The brain is the most complex part of the human body. Command center of the human nervous system, this three-pound organ is the seat of intelligence, interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement, and controller of behavior. The brain requires more energy than any other organ in your body—it consumes more than one-third of all the energy you produce. Which is where NAD+ comes in.
Oops, I misplaced my mind for a moment…
LET’S GET CLEAR ON MENTAL CLARITY
Mental clarity is a state of mind in which your perception is unclouded and you are fully present and engaged in the moment. When you can remember where you put your keys. Or what you went to the market to buy that you came home without. Sharp memory, recall, quick thinking, and clear judgment are all part of mental clarity. Slowness in thinking and difficulties sustaining attention, multi-tasking, holding information in mind, and word-finding aren’t.
Your brain’s sharp as a Q-tip.
SENIOR MOMENTS IN PROGRESS
Normal older adults are generally good at retaining information and memories that they’ve previously acquired, but it can take longer to retrieve them. Almost 40% of us will experience some form of memory loss after we turn 65. It’s also when brain fog rolls in. Brain fog is the antithesis of mental clarity. Details can get fuzzy. Keeping focus gets harder. Our attention and ability to concentrate make us blank out at things a lot simpler than trying to remember all your passwords. (We dare anyone at any age to take on that mental task.)
Brain seems to be napping more?
COGNITIVE AGING CAN REALLY MESS WITH YOUR MIND
As a person gets older, changes occur in all parts of the body, including the brain. This may become noticeable particularly from middle age—usually meaning our 40’s, 50’s, and early 60’s. It’s called cognitive aging. Certain parts of the brain shrink, especially those important to learning and other complex mental activities. Blood flow to the brain may decrease. Brain regions involved with memory processing such as the hippocampus and especially the front lobes undergo anatomical changes over time. There is also a natural loss of receptors and neurons that occur with aging.
What? What was that again? Could you repeat that?
NO, YOU’RE NOT LOSING YOUR MIND
Cognitive aging is the brain’s version of your body parts working less efficiently due to age, rather than due to disease or serious damage. It could be scary, but it’s nothing to be wary about. Dementia is not a normal sign of getting older. “It’s right there on the tip of my tongue. I’ll get it, I’ll get it” doesn’t mean you have Alzheimer’s. For example, with cognitive aging, you may misplace things from time to time—your phone, glasses, or TV remote—but you’re able to retrace your steps and find them. With dementia, people put objects in unusual places, like putting the house keys in the bathroom cabinet.
I gotta remember that when I get freaked out.
NAD+. NOT EXACTLY ON THE TIP OF ANYONE’S TONGUE
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD+. Let’s stick with NAD+. You’d need to be a scientific genius to remember Nicotinamide….uh, uh, what was that again?
NAD+ is a coenzyme utilized by every cell in the body and is critical for regulating genes that accelerate aging. NAD+ battles aging by activating key anti-aging agents called sirtuins—a type of protein that fights the mental decline associated with aging. NAD+ helps your brain function at the optimal level by repairing brain cells, protecting them from damage, and increasing the activity of neurons.
This is crazy…it will come to me…
“NAD+. NAD+. WAIT…IT WAS HERE A MINUTE AGO…”
As we age, our natural supply of NAD decreases. We lose approximately 40% of our NAD levels by the age of 40. We use it faster than we’re able to produce it. When NAD+ levels decline, energy transfer in cells breaks down, leading to mitochondrial dysfunction that results in many of the physical symptoms of aging. Your body relies on mitochondria and NAD+ to convert glucose into metabolic energy and supply that energy to your brain. Basically, without adequate NAD+ levels, your brain will be starved for energy.
Time to get your head on straight.
HAVE THE PRESENCE OF MIND TO ASK FOR HELP
Fortunately, by increasing intracellular levels of NAD+, age-related mitochondrial dysfunction can be reversed. Yes, with NAD+ supplementation, brain cells can reverse in age.
NAD+ therapy can increase memory retention and improve overall mental clarity. Without it, a lack of focus and attention (not to mention retention) has the power to disrupt your daily life, hinder your performance at work or school, and ultimately make success impossible.
So now what? Remember that it doesn’t have to go this way. At Thrive Health Solutions they understand what you’re going through and care about improving your overall quality of life. They want to take away the stress of forgetting where you filed your life, as that only makes the problem worse. Experts in NAD+ and its factor in mental clarity, Thrive offers a variety of NAD+ IV infusions and injections with different vitamins and supplements according to your specific needs. Infusing your body with NAD+ via an IV drip is the only way to ensure that you get 100% bioavailability from the molecule. This means that your body will absorb the highest possible coenzymes and convert them into molecular energy. Thrive also offers NAD+/AOD9604 troches as another option for getting better mental clarity. Sort of an added plus to NAD+, as AOD9604 is also known for boosting mental cognition along with weight management. If you’ve been racking your brains for answers and are looking to optimize your mental clarity, the first thing to remember is NAD+. The second and most important thing to remember is Thrive Health Solutions. Repeat it: NAD+, Thrive Health Solutions. NAD+, Thrive Health Solution. Write it down. Don’t lose the paper. Put it on your phone. Remember where your phone is. Then text or call Thrive Health Solutions for an appointment now.
