About Agnus Castus (Vitex/Chaste Berry)

Vitex (or chasteberry) is the fruit of the chaste tree, whose botanical name is Vitex agnus castus, belongs to the Verbenaceae family.

Vitex (Agnus Castus) is reputed to have a hormonal effect and is often used for disorders of the female reproductive system. The German Commission E has approved vitex for normalizing irregular menstrual periods and relieving premenstrual symptoms such as bloating, breast tenderness, and moodiness. Chasteberry works by helping the pituitary gland to raise progesterone levels. Chasteberry induces the pituitary gland to free a luteinizing hormone and stop a follicle-stimulating one. Vitex (Agnus Castus) contains an active ingredient that binds to dopamine (D2) receptors in the hypothalamus/anterior pituitary, which action inhibits the release of prolactin. Decreased serum prolactin levels result in increased secretion of progestrone during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Vitex can help normalize the ratio of hormones required for normal menstrual function and fertility.
