Douglas Laboratories Adreno-Mend for the adrenal glands located above the kidneys that release hormones and help the body respond to stress. Adreno-Mend is designed to promote optimal function of the various homeostasis regulatory systems that work with the adrenal glands to maintain physiological function during both acute and chronic stress. This formulation includes a combination of ten highly valued herbal extracts. Schisandra is used in Herbal Medicine as an adaptogen to help increase energy and resistance to stress. Along with Eleuthero, it helps support mental performance and physical working capacity, and helps promote the balanced response of the sympatho-adrenal-system (SAS) to the body’s acute reaction to a stressor. Similarly, Panax is used in Herbal Medicine to help reduce mental fatigue and enhance physical capacity. It is also used as a supportive therapy for the promotion of healthy glucose levels as it mediates the stress induced elevations of catecholamines and adrenaline-induced hyperglycemia. To provide additional cognitive support, Ashwagandha and Bacopa are included for their traditional use in Ayurveda for memory enhancement. Ashwagandha is also traditionally used in Ayurveda as a rejuvenative tonic, sedative and sleep aid.
