(Vitex agnus-castus) aka - Vitex, Chaste Tree, Hemp Tree, Monk’s Pepper, Chaste Berries
This important female herb regulates the menstrual cycle of women but its special application is for relieving the symptoms of PMS and female menopause. The unique properties of Vitex are due to its pituitary-stimulating properties and its ability to increase the luteinizing hormone (Progesterone), which stimulates the sloughing off of the corpus luteum associated with menstruation. Vitex helps balance the hormones Estrogen and Progesterone, helping to regulate a woman’s cycle, including time in between menstruation, bleeding, and length of period. What this implies is that Vitex is the herb of choice for helping to maintain a woman’s emotional balance before, during and after menstruation.
