    Chasteberry Vitex (Agnus Castus)

    Agnus Castus is an essential herbal supplement for women suffering from hormonal imbalance, irregular menstruation, cramps, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or symptoms of menopause. Vitex Agnus Castus is also known as Chasteberry, and has been used to treat impotence, female infertility and the absence of menstruation (Amenorrhea).

    In Europe, Chasteberry is recommended more frequently than any other herb for relieving the symptoms of PMS. It serves as an essential supplement for peace of mind during this particular time of the month.

    Key agnus castus benefits:

    • Reduces PMS symptoms
    • Minimises fibrocystic breast symptoms
    • Regulates ovulation and promotes fertility.
    • Treats menopausal difficulties.
    • Relieves the pain of endometriosis.
    • Controls menstrual related acne.

     

    Suggested use: Take one capsule first thing in the morning with food or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. The pituitary gland is at its most active early in the morning.

    Agnus Castus can be taken long term, but the general practice is to stop when you are having your cycle. Requires several months of supplement use to help regulate any hormonal condition.
