Dr. Christopher's Chaste Tree Berries - works indirectly to help enhance the body s natural balance of progesterone and estrogen. Pharmacological investigations show that it acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, which are primarily responsible for regulating the body s hormones. This herb is known to help stimulate the pituitary gland to increase the production of luteinizing hormone (LH), which tends to result in higher levels of progesterone during the second cycle of the women s menstrual cycle or luteal phase.
Oftentimes, when there is a progesterone deficiency, estrogen continues to dominate the luteal phase of the cycle, causing much of the female problems. Vitex has been used traditionally for the following ailments: Female reproductive system health, PMS or premenstrual syndrome, Heavy or frequent menstrual cycles, Absence of menstruation (amenorrhea), certain types of infertility, milk production in nursing women (lactation), Menopause, etc.
