Adreno-Mend™, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a synergistic combination of
ten highly valued herbal extracts with
adaptogenic properties designed to support healthy, balanced adrenal gland
function.† These plant adaptogens include Schisandra chinensis, Bacopa monnieri,
Rhodiola rosea, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Magnolia officinalis, Rhemannia
glutinosa, Bupleurum falcatum, Panax ginseng, Coleus forskohlii and Withania
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 function.
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
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 health.
