Chasteberry for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

The chaste tree is a small shrub with lance-shaped leaves and purple flowers. It is also known as Vitex. It is a traditional remedy used to balance hormones and strengthen the body’s fertility. It is native to the Eastern Mediterranean. According to studies, it supports the body’s natural production of progesterone and luteinizing hormones and balances their relationship to one another. In ancient times, Chasteberry was said to be an anaphrodisiac or something that lowers the libido — hence, that’s from where it gets its name. Over the years Chasteberry has been used to help ease PMS and other menstrual difficulties. Chasteberry acts to ease the physical and emotional symptoms of menstruation by working on stabilizing hormones. It is thought to help relieve PMS symptoms by lessening the release of prolactin from the pituitary. Elevated prolactin levels are one reason that hormonal imbalances can occur. By modulating prolactin, Chasteberry may also help balance female sex hormones to support a more regular menstrual cycle. Many herbalists believe that Chasteberry is a source of naturally occurring progesterone. Chasteberry provides relief from symptoms associated with PMS, which include cramps, bloating, acne, breast tenderness, and mood swings. It does so by normalizing the ratio of estrogen to progesterone.
