The wicker, scientifically called Vitex, is a fairly widespread shrub originating in the Mediterranean and Asia. Its name is due to its flexible branches. The term Agnus-Castus comes from the Greek Agnus (“pure”) and the Latin Castus (“pure”).
Agnus Castus is generally used to treat symptoms before and during menstruation, dysmenorrhea (menstrual cramps), menopausal symptoms and infertility.
Agnus Castus has a positive effect on the ovarian function and improves the ovarian hormone control and production during the menstrual cycle.
Studies have shown that it contributes to the regulation of prolactin as well as LH, two of the hormones that contribute to proper ovarian function.
We are using Agnus Castus supplements for the last 17 years and we have found it the most positively influential supplement for the ovarian function.
In addition to improving fertility, Agnus Castus can have a beneficial effect on the regularity of menstruation because of its ability to help balancing the menstrual hormonal levels.
Thus, women with reduced ovarian function, unstable cycles, endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, emotional instability, headaches and acne can take advantage of the properties of VITEX Agnus Castus.
Attention should be paid to interaction with other hormonal preparations, such as oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy HRT, because although Vitex Agnus Castus is of natural origin, it affects the hormonal function of the body.
