Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber undergo treatment for cell regeneration

Keeping Up With The Kardashians came to an end, but fans can still catch the Kardashian-Jenner clan on new series The Kardashians.

In a recent episode, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber decide to go to an IV drip party in Miami to receive a treatment that promotes cell regeneration.

As per Headrick Medical Center, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) IV therapy has been used since the 1960s. It helps to stimulate “healthy brain function and improved performance throughout numerous bodily systems”.

As well as enhancing overall well-being, NAD IV therapy is also supposed to help in recovery from addiction, clear brain fog, and help manage chronic conditions.

As reported by Sportskeeda, the treatment is also considered helpful for anti-aging. During The Kardashians episode, Hailey Bieber joked: “I’m going to NAD for the rest of my life and I’m never going to age.”

How much does NAD IV therapy cost?

Kendall Jenner is clearly a fan of NAD IV therapy, but it may set her back a pretty penny.

According to DripHydration, NAD IV therapy can cost upwards of $800 for a single treatment, although the price will vary depending on whether you want to add other vitamins to the treatment. Ouch.

That being said, we know the Kardashian-Jenner family go above and beyond for wellness, health and cosmetics, so the price point makes sense.

The same publication points out NAD oral supplements are available for purchase (usually from a drug store) for a more reasonable price, but they’re apparently less effective than the infusion.

Why Kendall Jenner swears by NAD IV therapy

At more than $800 per treatment, the therapy is clearly doing something for model Kendall Jenner, but why does she undergo the process?

Well, speaking on camera on The Kardashians, the 26-year-old revealed: “I’ve been a hypochondriac my whole life, so I am obsessed with health right now. It’s my number one priority – to the point I’m eating myself alive thinking about my health.”

Jenner also spoke about her experience with covid, sharing: “It’s very strange. I’m two months out now and I still don’t feel good. I just feel weird.

“Things like this (NAD) comfort me. They help because it just makes me happy and I don’t want anyone to judge me.”
