Why choose at-home NAD injections over NAD infusions?

NAD+ plays a role in an impressive number of essential processes in the body, helping to undo the age-related damage and other unfortunate complications that occur as we get older. Injections and infusions are the two primary methods of direct NAD supplementation, but what one is right for you? This article will explain what NAD+ is, the benefits supplementation provides, and why injections are superior to infusions.

What is NAD?

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme naturally produced by our body. It is a component of all our cells, but the problem is that it declines as we get older, as many other things do. But, NAD is very important for many biological functions in our body, such as creating energy from nutrients and maintaining the health of our DNA, so this decline can have some unpleasant effects on our body and quality of life.

The aspects of our life that NAD plays a role in are far-reaching. NAD regulates many metabolic processes, such as insulin release, stress response, and lifespan modulation, and impacts many areas of the body, such as the heart, liver, reproductive organs, brain and nervous system, kidney, pancreas, and muscles. In addition, NAD+ may decrease the risk of certain diseases, including depression, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, retinal degeneration, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

There are many potential benefits of supplementing NAD as a means to combat the natural decline that occurs as we age, including:

  • higher energy levels
  • improved mental clarity
  • better moods
  • improved post-workout recovery
  • reduced cravings
  • lower fatigue

How to Supplement NAD

The two preferred methods of direct NAD supplementation are infusions and injections. NAD exists in a pill form as well, but it is not as effective because it does not go directly into the bloodstream and instead has to travel through the stomach first. This then limits the amount of NAD that eventually gets absorbed by the body. By injecting NAD right into the bloodstream, it is theorized that it will bypass the stomach, and the body is able to absorb more NAD and waste less of it. All this means that your body better benefits from NAD injections or infusions.

The Benefits of Injections Over Infusions


Plain and simple, it is cheaper to supplement NAD+ in a shot than it is to receive infusions. The primary reason for this is all the equipment and medical personnel required to administer an infusion. Not to mention the price of the building itself where the infusions take place, which also goes into the price tag of the infusion.

There is also the associated cost of getting the infusion, whether that is the cost of gas, public transportation, wear and tear on your car, or needing to take time off from work. All these little things add up.

In comparison, NAD+ injections can be completed at home, at whatever time works best for you. This means you don’t have to take off work, and you don’t have to worry about fighting any traffic to and from the appointment.

The cost of a single NAD+ infusion starts at $749 [1], although it can vary significantly from place to place. On the other hand, a vial of NAD+ starts at $250, with enough product for approximately 5-25 injections, depending on the injection amount. [2]


There is also the matter of comfort. When receiving a NAD infusion, you have to sit in a doctor’s office, and even before that, you might have to wait in a waiting room for an unknown amount of time before you can even be seen by a nurse.

In addition, going to a doctor’s office creates a lot of uncertainty. Most times, you don’t know how long you will be there, so you never know how much of your day to dedicate to the event. By choosing to have your NAD+ injection at home, you are the one running the schedule, so you do not have to worry about feeling unsure.

For many people, doctor’s offices are also a place of high stress, even when you know what is going to happen. To avoid that unnecessary stress, NAD+ injections can be administered at home. No need to subject yourself to a stressful environment, or unnecessary small talk, when administering your NAD+ shot at home is an option.


The saying “time is money” is very common, but we can also agree that time spent waiting or driving in the car is time that can instead be spent doing something productive or enjoyable. The fact is that NAD infusions take up a lot of time that would be better spent doing something else.

Infusions can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours [1], and the time only increases the longer you continue with them. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the longer you use NAD+ shots, the more you have to inject yourself with at a single time. So, if you start with 0.1 mL shots, you may work up to 0.5 mL in each shot over time, but it does not take any longer to administer the shot.

In a matter of minutes, you are finished with your shot, and you only have to do it one to three times per week. That means that all your weekly NAD+ injections combined will likely take less time than the trip to the doctor’s office, not even counting the time spent there and the drive home.

How to Inject a NAD+ shot?

Injecting an NAD+ shot is simple. You draw the prescribed amount out with the syringe and then inject yourself into the fatty layer of your skin, which can be the back of your arm, abdomen, or lumbar area.

With NAD+, you don’t have to worry about any significant side effects, and the most common reaction is a slight irritation at the injection site. This means that you can enjoy all the benefits of NAD+ without any unpleasant side effects. Talk about a win-win.
