Agnus Castus, also known as vitex or chaste tree, this tincture is useful for premenstrual syndrome and associated conditions.
  • Menstrual cramps.
  • Mood swings and irritability.
  • Breast tenderness.
  • Bloating.
Premenstrual Syndrome (aka. Premenstrual Tension) is caused by an imbalance of female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. It is believed that high levels of prolactin or a sensitivity to it, also may have an effect on PMS. A.Vogel Agnus Castus exerts a balancing effect on female sex hormones, increasing progesterone levels and reducing prolactin. Other hormonal links to menstruation are painful periods, heavy bleeding and tender breasts. Agnus Castus acts on the pituitary gland, triggering a reaction that leads to the production of progesterone. This reduces these menstrual problems.

Altering the levels of prolactin in the body, often lends a hand to conception. This makes Agnus Castus a popular supplement for infertility. Also, this altered hormonal activity in the body can benefit some who suffer from fibroids or endometriosis. Lastly, Agnus Castus has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of hormonal acne in both men and women.

Directions for use:
