Vitex is a supplement derived from Chasteberries, the fruit of the Vitex Agnus-Castus plant which has been used to support women’s reproductive health for centuries.How Vitex Works
The secret of Vitex’s potency is the unique way that it interacts with the Pituitary Gland. There are two aspects of this interaction that are particularly important for those that benefit from Vitex: An increase in Progesterone, and decrease in the ovulation-suppressing hormone Prolactin.
Together, these changes have a powerful impact, and are capable of correcting many common menstrual issues.Regular Symptom-Free Menstruation
By encouraging progesterone production and normal, healthy ovulation, Vitex can greatly reduce the symptoms of PMS including:
- Mood Swings
- Painful Cramping
- Breast Tenderness
- Premenstrual Acne
Resetting After Birth Control
Vitex is often used to reset normal menstrual cycle function following the extended use of birth control. For those that have difficulty regaining their normal monthly cycle after the use of this common contraception method, Vitex can be the exact jump start needed to achieve regular, healthy menstrual cycles.Menopause Aid
For women who have previously experienced reliable, and relatively symptom-free menstrual cycles, menopause-related changes can be frustrating and difficult. And because menopause typically lasts for years, the frustration can endure. Many women use the cycle-regulating power of Vitex to regain flagging menstrual normalcy during these stages of menopause.
