NAD for Depression
NAD+ Depression Treatment
As the prevalence of depression continues to rise each year, the demand for effective treatment options becomes increasingly pronounced. Antidepressant medications have proven to be a remarkable solution for many, often yielding transformative results. Nevertheless, there are individuals who may not respond favourably to specific medications, have reservations about medication-based approaches, or seek additional support in their journey towards recovery. In such cases, emerging research suggests that NAD therapy could serve as a valuable adjunctive option for managing both short- and long-term depression symptoms and treatment.
NAD, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is gaining recognition for its potential to provide relief to those grappling with depression. This innovative therapy offers a holistic approach to addressing the multifaceted nature of depression.

NAD IV Drips and the Brain
NAD infusions are designed to increase levels of niacin in your body. A deficiency or depletion of niacin can happen due to depression as well as drug and alcohol misuse, where depression often co-exists.
Depression is one of the common side effects of niacin deficiency. In its severe form, it is known as pellagra, an illness that can cause dementia, delusions, fatigue, weakness, skin conditions and, ultimately, death.
A major contributing neurotransmitter to depression and its treatment is serotonin. Widely known for its mood elevating effect, serotonin is the target of most mild to medium antidepressant medications. One of the main reasons for this is the effect niacin has on the brain.
Niacin is part of the system that metabolises tryptophan in food and produces serotonin. This means that NAD+ has a direct effect on the production of serotonin.
NAD Therapy Physical Depression
Depression is a mental and behavioural issue, and the symptoms often contribute to the problem. Many physical side effects are tiredness, fatigue, sleep problems and general energy issues.
NAD is vitally important to producing energy through our metabolic system. Many studies have shown that niacin levels are lower in people with depression. This could be either cause or result but worsens the situation.
Exercise and Depression
Improving energy levels makes us feel better naturally, but encouraging physical exercise is another added benefit.
Aerobic exercise is a common behavioural intervention that significantly improves depression. Studies show this isn’t just a temporary improvement, but impacts depression long-term.
Exercise increases the level of the mood-enhancing neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine, which have a strong influence on depression. On a simpler level, exercise distracts us as well. We are taking our focus away from negative or stressful thoughts.
One of the barriers to exercising when you have depression is that you feel so lethargic and drained that you don’t feel like it. A boost from a NAD+ drip may help get you get started with exercising, and can also improve sleep and diet.
NAD+ IV infusions can offer a huge boost to your body and mind, and can help in getting you started on an upwards cycle to overcome depression.
While NAD therapy may offer a much-needed energy boost, it’s essential to recognise that addressing depression involves more than just a surge in vitality. Depression often brings along its challenging companions, such as insomnia, persistent stress, and the inability to find restful solace.
At Nadcell Clinic, we understand that holistic well-being encompasses not only physical vitality but also mental tranquility. That’s why we offer an innovative solution in the form of Satori Chair treatments. These treatments provide a serene and rejuvenating environment infused with sonic frequencies and gentle vibrations designed to facilitate deep relaxation.
The Satori Chair experience is more than just a chair; it’s an oasis of tranquility that beckons your body and mind to enter a state of profound calmness. It’s in this serene sanctuary that you can finally find respite from the relentless grip of stress and insomnia that often accompany depression.
Our Satori Chair treatments are tailored to create an environment where your body and mind can harmonise, allowing you to emerge feeling restored and refreshed. These sessions offer a sanctuary of solace amidst life’s turbulence, promoting a sense of peace and rejuvenation that complements the holistic approach we take at Nadcell Clinic.

Your path to well-being, both physically and mentally, begins here, with us.
Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (TES) therapy uses mild electric currents to help with depression, pain and insomnia. It is non-invasive and stimulates the brain to release endorphins and serotonin, which are known to be mood-elevating for those with depression.
Counselling for Depression
Talking therapies, especially Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), are very effective when dealing with depression. Many people suffer from depression due to PTSD or trauma, and talking about these can help them understand and move on from them.
If, on the other hand, your depression is caused by life changes or conditions, you can set goals with a counsellor (we have a counsellor at Nadcell) to help improve your behaviour, thought patterns and lifestyle.
