Vitex Chasteberry Extract (90 VegiCaps)



Vitex works through the hypothalamus-pituitary axis by encouraging the production of progesterone and restoring the balance of estrogen and progesterone. Clinical studies using Vitex show it to be helpful in reducing uterine fibroids, headaches, breast tenderness, bloating, fatigue, cravings for sweets, feelings of anxiety, irritability, and depression, mood swings, hot flashes, and acne.

  • Helpful for Hormonal Acne.

    How does Vitex work? Vitex does not act as a phyto-estrogen (plant estrogen). Vitex works through another important chemical pathway, the hypothalamus-pituitary axis, to balance female hormones. Vitex increases luteinizing hormone production while mildly inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone, leading to an indirect increase in progesterone and normalization of prolactin levels. The combination of actions produced by Vitex seems to restore the estrogen/ progesterone balance.

    SUGGESTED USE: Take 1 capsule per day before breakfast. Up to 3 per day can be taken daily.

    NOTE: Vitex is not a fast-acting treatment and needs to be taken consistently to see results. The average time needed is about 6 months.

    May interfere with the effectiveness of birth control. Not recommended for pregnant women.
