How it works
Vitex agnus-castus is indicated for the relief of symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. Low levels of the hormone progesterone can contribute to premenstrual symptoms such as tension, irritability, anxiety or other mood changes. Vitex has been shown to help these symptoms due to its effect on the pituitary gland.
Clinical trials have shown that Vitex agnus-castus can help correct irregularities of the menstrual cycle, such as cycle length. Vitex encourages ovulation and helps to normalise the menstrual cycle. It can assist in reducing breast pain, fluid retention and premenstrual acne.
