Chaste Tree, botanical name vitex agnus-castus, is used most commonly in the treatment of hormonal and gynaecological conditions such as Premenstrual Syndrome, irregular periods, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and painful periods. It is also invaluable in treatment for infertility, lack of ovulation and peri/menopausal issues.
This adaptogenic herb acts on the pituitary gland to reduce prolactin levels normalising menstrual cycles, balancing hormone levels, supporting ovulation and stimulating the hormones FSH and LH to encourage healthy menstrual cycling.
This amazing herb also has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used in the treatment of headache, pain, fever and for skin conditions such as acne.
