Vitex or Chasteberry is an amazing hormonal tonic for women. Clinical studies, along with thousands of years of use, since Dioscorides in 55AD has proven the effectiveness of this remedy.
When does Vitex work?
It is one of the single best herbs for treating your PMS: cramps, flooding, headaches, depression, water retention, constipation, acne, breast tenderness, and irritability.
It can help normalize irregular or scanty periods. A great help if you are coming off the birth control pill as it helps the body to regaining its own natural rhythm.
If you are starting to feel some of the uncomfortable menopausal symptoms and it can also be a useful remedy for uterine fibroids or endometriosis.
How does Vitex work?
All of these female hormonal conditions (PMS to menopause) occur under the influence of oestrogen and shrink under the influence of progesterone.
Vitex will stimulate and normalise your pituitary & hypothalamus glands, raising progesterone levels and decrease oestrogen levels – to help your body reach a hormonal balance that is right for you.
Vitex itself has none of the hormonal building blocks, instead it nourishes and supports the endocrine system to find its own balance.
It is a safe and effective herbal remedy, with something to offer women in every cycle of life. Don’t take Vitex if you are pregnant or trying to conceive.
Will Vitex work for you?
Vitex doesn’t work for all hormonal imbalances, to determine whether you would benefit from this herb you can either try it out yourself or consult a qualified herbalist for the best treatment plan to suit your needs and requirements.
It is a slow-acting herb and will often require up to three full cycles for the plant to really work its magic. Vitex works best when combined with a lifestyle that includes a healthy lifestyle.
