Scientific name: Vitex agnus-castus
Chaste Berries Vitex agnus-castus-a herb that has been used for menstrual difficulties for over 2500 years. It has been shown to help balance the progesterone and estrogen levels hence it’s reference as a “female” herb.
Vitex contains various alkaloids and flavonoids that are precursors of steroidal hormones. The uses of chaste tree berry include reduction of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menstrual cramps and other pre-menopausal symptoms. Studies have shown a reduction in breast tenderness and pressure, headaches, bloating and fatigue in women who took the herb regularly and over time.
Vitex is often used in combination with other herbs. It can be used with black cohosh to treat PMS and menopause symptoms. Can be used with echinacea to treat acne caused by hormone imbalances and with feverfew for menstrual migraine. This herb is powerful; a customer once took it and saw her period by he next day but it does not always give immediate results for everybody and might be used over a long period of time.
While the chaste tree berry may start working within 10 days, you will need at least 6 months to reap its full benefits. Try to take it daily for a month without skipping any days. In most cases,Vitex could be used for four to six months to obtain the desired effect- be patient; it’s not magic.
Women suffering from infertility and amenorrhea (lack of menstruation) can take vitex for 12 to 18 months, unless pregnancy occurs during treatment. Warning
Due to Vitex hormonal influences it should NOT be taken in conjunction with other female hormonal medications(synthetic or prescribed).
