Vitex: Traditional Mediterranean Women's Herb
Vitex is a pink-violet flowered shrub common to southern Europe and the countries
of the Mediterranean basin. Its round black berries have been used by women
since ancient times to bring balance to the female reproductive system. The
Greek physician Dioscorides mentioned chaste berry some 2,000 years ago. He
noted that its Latin name agnus castus, meaning chaste lamb, referred to the
reputed property of its seeds, when taken as a drink, to reduce sexual desire
- an association that has not been confirmed by modern research.
Vitex Supports Hormonal Balance for Women of All Ages
Scientific research, while finding no effect on sexual desire, is confirming
vitex's role in influencing female cycles. Vitex has been found to modify the
activity of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands and in this way to help regulate
and balance female hormone production. Specifically, modern research suggests
that vitex inhibits the secretion of prolactin.
Vitex is indispensable for supporting a healthy reproductive system in women.
It is the perfect complement to any women's health program.
