                                                Adrenal Medulla Functions
Secreted hormone
Effect
Adrenaline (epinephrine) 
Fight-or-flight response: Boost the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain and muscles (by increasing heart rate and stroke volume, vasodilation, increasing catalysis of glycogen in liver, breakdown of lipids in fat cells)Dilate the pupils
Suppress non-emergency bodily processes (e.g., digestion)
Noradrenaline (norepinephrine)
Fight-or-flight response: Boost the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain and muscles (by increasing heart rate and stroke volume, vasoconstriction and increased blood pressure, breakdown of lipids in fat cells)Increase skeletal muscle readiness.
Dopamine
Increase heart rate and blood pressure
Enkephalin
Regulates pain
                                                   
                                                Adrenal Cortex Functions
Secreted hormone
Effect
Glucocorticoids (cortisol)
Stimulates gluconeogenesis
Stimulates fat breakdown in tissue
Inhibits protein synthesis
Inhibits glucose uptake in muscle and adipose tissue
Inhibits immunological responses (immunosuppressive)
Inhibits inflammatory responses (anti-inflammatory)
Mineralocorticoids (aldosterone)
Stimulates active sodium reabsorption in kidneys
Stimulates passive water reabsorption in kidneys, thus increasing blood volume and blood pressure.
Androgens (including DHEA and testosterone)
In males: Relatively small effect compared to androgens from testes
In females: masculinizing effects
Endo-met Labs Endo-Dren
Endo-Dren contains bovine adrenal nucleoprotein together with vital synergistic nutrients to aid in restoring normal adrenal response. The adrenal gland is a pair of triangular shaped glands, attached to the top of each kidney. Glandular products contain polypeptides, enzymes, and nucleoproteins which have been shown to enhance glandular function. 90 tablets
