Sometimes women must face different situations throughout their lives that involve having less energy or dealing with annoying symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances.
The chasteberry or Vitex agnus-castus is a plant native to the Mediterranean which is believed to have been used since the time of ancient Greece for its medicinal benefits as a natural remedy for the hormonal and reproductive health and well-being of women.
In this article from Nutralie we tell you about the benefits that this plant has on women’s health.
This plant acts on the endocrine system in the pituitary gland, which regulates the production of hormones such as progesterone and oestrogen, which is beneficial in situations where there are hormonal imbalances such as menopause and other problems related to the menstrual cycle.
Chasteberry extract has been used to relieve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), both physical and emotional associated symptoms, such as breast pain, abdominal swelling, mood swings, and sleep problems. By balancing hormones, chasteberry helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and lessen the severity of premenstrual symptoms.
During pre-menopause and menopause, many women experience uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. Chasteberry helps at this stage of life by stabilising hormone levels and reducing the intensity of menopausal symptoms.
Chasteberry has also been used as a natural aid to improve fertility and reproductive health. By balancing hormones and regulating the menstrual cycle, it can help increase the chances of conception.
In addition to its hormonal balance benefits it has also been used to relieve headaches, reduce fluid retention, improve skin health and relieve symptoms of conditions related to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and hormonal acne.
