The physical and psychological symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) are often challenging to manage. MS affects everyone differently, making it impossible to predict how MS will impact your life. Living with the uncertainty of when a new symptom may appear may prevent you from doing things you enjoy.

Although there is no cure for MS, new treatments have recently been developed to help people manage their symptoms and lead fulfilling lives. Recent studies show promising results from NAD+ treatments. It’s a noninvasive treatment that can help reduce and slow the progression of your symptoms. This guide will explore this new treatment and how it could improve your life.
What Is MS?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord. The immune system wears down the protective coating around your nerves, making it challenging for your brain to communicate with the rest of your body. Everyone with MS experiences the disease differently, depending on which nerves are affected and the severity of the damage.
Symptoms vary significantly from mild to severe. They can come and go and change over time, making living with MS extremely unpredictable. Common symptoms include:
- Difficulty walking.
- Numbness or tingling.
- Muscle spasms.
- Blurred vision.
- Chronic pain.
- Bladder and bowel issues.
- Mood swings.
- Difficulty thinking, learning and remembering.
In the beginning stages of MS, most people experience a roller coaster of symptoms that develop over days or weeks and eventually improve or disappear for several months or even years. That’s because the brain can repair and reroute nerves to send signals and regain normal function. However, over time the wear and tear lead to permanent damage and symptoms that don’t improve. Treatment can help people manage symptoms and potentially delay disease progression.
What Is NAD+?
NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide — a critical substance involved in hundreds of your bodily processes. It helps create energy from nutrients and assists proteins with many other cellular functions that keep you alive.
The concentration of NAD+ naturally declines as people age, sometimes causing diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses. Research shows that patients with MS also experience NAD+ deficiencies. Treating MS patients with NAD+ therapy helps replenish these levels and potentially alleviate symptoms.
In a recent study using mice, researchers found that NAD+ injections reversed the progression of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) — a standard test model for MS. These results promote the possibility that NAD+ could be an effective treatment for MS in humans.
NAD+ IV Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis
NAD+ IV Therapy is a simple IV infusion that releases a high dose of NAD+ into your bloodstream. While you could take an oral supplement, an IV drip bypasses your stomach and delivers the NAD+ directly to the cells that need it. Increasing your NAD levels helps your cells produce more energy, repair DNA, optimize your bodily functions and restore brain function. This treatment is safe, natural and pain-free.
NAD+ IV Therapy is an excellent treatment for various disorders, including multiple sclerosis. More research is needed to determine the full impact of NAD+ IV therapy for MS, but it seems to reduce the intensity and slow the progression of symptoms. It’s easily accessible on days when you wake up with intense symptoms. Simply call to schedule an appointment, and a registered nurse will travel to your home and administer the infusion. The results are almost immediate.
What Is the Treatment Like?
NAD+ IV Therapy is quick and easy. All you have to do is schedule an appointment, and a registered nurse will come to your location and provide the treatment. They’ll meet you at your bedside on days when you don’t feel well enough to move.
The nurse will sanitize the injection site and use a topical numbing spray before inserting the IV, so it’s virtually painless. It takes about one to four hours for the fluid to drip into your body. During the infusion, you can scroll on your phone, read, watch a movie or take a nap as long as you keep your arm in the correct position. You may notice an improvement in your symptoms immediately, or it may take some time.
Is NAD Good for MS?
Research shows that NAD has the potential to reduce MS symptoms significantly. Some of the possible benefits include:
- Increased energy levels: Our cells use a molecule called ATP for energy to perform essential bodily functions. NAD helps produce ATP, which gives the body a boost of energy that you can feel.
- Decreased fatigue: Feeling tired is a common symptom that people with MS experience. The boost of energy from a NAD infusion will help you overcome your fatigue.
- Better mood: Depression, anxiety, sadness and fear are natural reactions to the challenges of living with MS. By relieving some of these symptoms and providing your body with the energy it needs to function correctly, NAD can improve your mood.
- Improved brain function: MS can cause memory loss and difficulty thinking clearly. NAD supports the proteins that aid cognitive function so they can improve mental clarity, concentration and memory.
- Decreased inflammation: NAD may reduce the inflammation that’s pressing on your nervous system and causing your symptoms.
- Less pain: By reducing inflammation in your body, NAD can also relieve pain.
Which IV Treatment Package Is Good for MS?
The NAD+ infusion therapy from Mobile IV Medics is specifically formulated to help restore NAD+ levels in your body.
