Restore balance to your monthly cycle with the beautiful berry of the Chaste Tree. This berry has actually been shown to normalize crazy periods and relieve breast tenderness and other havoc-wreaking symptoms of PMS. As a tonic for the entire female reproductive system, it also comes to the rescue of peri-menopausal women.
The Chaste Tree originates in Italy and Greece and its fruit has been used for over 2000 years to treat a variety of health complaints, from breast pain to impotence and almost everything in between. Today, Chaste Tree is used primarily to alleviate breast tenderness and other premenstrual and menopausal symptoms by normalizing the menstrual cycle. While its active ingredients have not yet been fully identified, it is thought that compounds called diterpenoids may be responsible for Chaste Tree’s powerful impact on the female reproductive system. These compounds work by acting on the pituitary. They also help balance the activity of the female hormones and reduce the extreme symptoms often associated with PMS.
Chaste Tree has been shown in studies to inhibit the pituitary from releasing too much of the hormone, prolactin, which is responsible for premenstrual breast swelling and pain. By reducing prolactin, this herb also indirectly balances the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, which in turn corrects a wide range of menstrual irregularities, including painful, heavy or absent periods and short menstrual cycles. In peri-menopause, many women experience estrogen dominance caused by a decline in progesterone, and this can be one of the first physiological changes to cause noticeable symptoms. Early studies are finding Chaste Tree to be helpful for such symptoms as hot flashes and night sweats due to its ability to boost progesterone levels relative to estrogen.
Hormone balance definitely doesn’t happen overnight – it’s essential to take chaste tree for at least 3 menstrual cycles in order to experience its full benefits.
