Vitex Agnus Castus

Vitex agnus castus is a herb traditionally used for pre-menstrual tension and to promote hormone balance.

It is used particularly for PMT associated with anxiety, breast tenderness and fluid retention.

It is not fully understood how Vitex Agnus castus works, but it is thought it may have an impact on the hormone-producing areas of the brain, such as the pituitary gland, which then leads to a reduction in prolactin, a hormone that may be involved in PMS. It is also thought to have progestogenic properties. Vitex Agnus castus is most often taken for PMS, but some research shows it may also be helpful for other hormonal conditions including menopause and female fertility issues.

Studies have shown it can offer relief from mild to moderate PMS symptoms, including headaches, depression, breast tenderness, mastalgia, anxiety, fluid retention and bloating.
