Who May Use
Adreno-Mend™ may be a useful dietary
supplement for individuals wishing to support
healthy adrenal function with this unique blend
As a dietary supplement, adults may take 2
capsules each morning with food for 1 to 2
weeks or as directed by your healthcare
The dose may then be increased to 4 capsules
each morning with food for 1 to 3 months or as
directed by your healthcare professional.
After 1 to 3 months dosage may be lowered
back down to 2 capsules each morning with food
and may continue on 2 capsules dosage as
needed or as directed by your healthcare
The response to chronic stress - first defined as
occurring in three stages by Hans Selye as
alarm, resistance and exhaustion - typically
results in aberrant adrenal function and adrenal
fatigue, as well as abnormal cognitive,
metabolic, energy, endurance, immune and
glycemic function. The consequences of
intermittent stress, or episodic acute stress
during resistance or exhaustion, interfere with
recovery and also promote abnormal neuroendocrine,
metabolic and immune system
The plant adaptogens in Adreno-Mend™
effectively address all stages of both acute and
chronic stress, support the body's ability to
adapt to stressors and help avoid the damaging
consequences from those stressors.
Collectively, plant adaptogens can support
symptoms of fatigue and enhance endurance as
well as support normal mental and emotional
well being. Plant adaptogens also can increase
the body's ability to resist and recover from
stress while providing an overall feeling of
balance and normalization. +
During acute stress, and the alarm stage of
stress, Rhodiola rosea, Schizandra chinensis,
Bacopa monnieri, and Eleutherococcus
senticosus can support mental performance and
physical working capacity, as well as promote
the balanced response of the sympatho-adrenalsystem
(SAS) to the body's acute
reaction to a stressor.
During the resistance stage Withania somnifera,
Coleus forskohlii, are able to support the normal
thyroid and gonadal. function. In the exhaustion
stage the Rehmannia glutinosa, Bupleurum
falcatum and Withania somnifera act as primary
agents to restore proper function of the
hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and work
synergistically with other plant adaptogens to
support normal function of other body systems.
Adaptogens with adrenotrophic properties may
also decrease adrenal atrophy seen in the
exhaustion stage of chronic stress.
The increased cortisol levels seen in various
stages of stress are modulated by Schizandra
chinensis and Magnolia officinalis. Rehmannia
glutinosa can help restore normal function of
glucocorticoid receptors that have been down
regulated due to chronically elevated levels of
cortisol. Bupleurum falcatum supports adrenal
recovery and normalization of the hypothalamicpituitary-
adrenal (HPA) system by promoting the
release of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH),
which is responsible for maintaining the normal
size and function of the adrenal gland.
Stress induced elevations of catecholamines
and adrenaline-induced hyperglycemia can be
modulated by Magnolia officinalis, Panax
ginseng and Rehmannia glutinosa.
While the primary benefit of plant adaptogens is
the ability to restore healthy, balanced adrenal
gland function by supporting normal
hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis
function, the effectiveness of these adaptogens
is in large part also due to their ability to protect
and promote the recovery of neuro-cognitive,
neuromuscular, cardiovascular, glycemic,
hepatic, thyroid, gonadal and immune system
