Chasteberry Vitex (Agnus Castus)
Agnus Castus is an essential herbal supplement for women suffering from hormonal imbalance, irregular menstruation, cramps, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or symptoms of menopause. Vitex Agnus Castus is also known as Chasteberry, and has been used to treat impotence, female infertility and the absence of menstruation (Amenorrhea).
In Europe, Chasteberry is recommended more frequently than any other herb for relieving the symptoms of PMS. It serves as an essential supplement for peace of mind during this particular time of the month.
Key agnus castus benefits:
