How Does This Ayurvedic Herb Supplement Improve Wellness?
CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW
Chastetree (Vitex) is a hormone regulator that works by stimulating and normalizing the pituitary gland, which regulates the balance of estrogen and progesterone in the body. It increases both progesterone and estrogen, but is primarily progesteronic. This makes it a panacea for female issues of the reproductive system. Vitex is a slow-acting herb.
It is well know that breastfeeding suppresses fertility and menstruation due to high levels of prolactin. Some women, however, have high prolactin in the absence of breastfeeding. Chastetree's dopaminergic action reduces prolactin. This corrects prolactin-induced suppression of the uterus (Holmes, Bonhert, 1997).
