Supplement Spotlight: Adreno-Mend

Written by: Anika Christ, RD, CISSN, CPT - Life Time Fitness

Adreno-Mend™ is designed to help the body put up a better defense against the effects of acute and chronic stress.  Adreno-Mend is formulated with more than 10 highly valued, herbal extracts that support healthy and balanced adrenal gland function, as well as support the body’s ability to adapt to stressors and avoid the damaging consequences from them. 

Adreno-Mend includes plant extracts such as Bacopa monnieri, Rhodiola rosea, Elutherococcus senticosus, Magnolia officinalis, Rhemannia glutinosa, Bupleurum falcatum, Panax ginseng, Coleus forskohlii and Withania sominfera. 

How does Adreno-Mend impact health?

Stress (physical, mental or emotional) is part of the way many of us live today, but most people don’t understand how it negatively impacts our bodies and health. The progressive stages of stress include alarm, resistance and exhaustion – depending on how long the body has been under stress.  Chronic stress can have a dramatic impact on our metabolism, and negatively influences the way our body regulates glucose, sex hormones, immunity and weight. 

Because we can’t always eliminate stressors, it’s a good idea to fortify our bodies against them.  Think of Adreno-Mend as a multivitamin made specifically for your adrenal glands.  Adrenal glands lay on the top of your kidneys and secrete your primary stress hormone (cortisol). When the adrenals are overworked and respond by producing high amounts of cortisol, the results can be abnormal cognitive function, lack of energy and recovery from exercise, decreased mental performance and immunity, and fatigue.

Adreno-Mend is unique compared to other stress-related supplements because it can respond to all three stages of stress.  The plant extracts in Adreno-Mend can help support symptoms of fatigue and support normal mental and emotional well-being.  Because they can increase the body’s ability to resist and recover from stress, endurance and physical working capacity may even increase as a result of its use.

Who would benefit from taking it?

Adreno-Mend is a useful supplement for individuals who want to support healthy adrenal function and those wishing to provide their body with a better defense against all stages of stress.

Recommended Dosage:

During all stages of stress:  2 capsules with food in morning for up to two weeks.  Then increase to 4 capsules in morning for one to three months.  Dosage may be returned to 2 capsules in the morning after 1 to 3 months.

Maintenance:  2 capsules in the morning. 

Potential Contraindications:

Because of its herbal extracts, individuals who are pregnant, nursing or taking prescription medications should consult with their healthcare practitioner before taking this supplement.
