Vitex (Chaste Tree) Berry Tincture

Also Known As - Vitex agnus-castus.chaste tree, gnus-castus, chasteberry, and monk's pepper

Origin - Elbe, WA

Overview - The chaste tree is a small shrub with lance shaped leaves and purple flowers. It is native to the eastern Mediterranean and has since been cultivated in temperate climates around the world. Its peppery fruit has been used for over two thousand years; at least since the time of the Greek physician Dioscorides who recommended it to help the wives of soldiers remain chaste while their husbands were in battle. The vitex berry was used by both men and women in ancient Greece and Rome, and by monks during the Middle Ages in order to suppress sexual desire. Pliny the Elder noted that Athenian maidens would put the leaves under their beds during the festival of Thesmophoria to help preserve their chastity.

Medicinal Uses - Vitex agnus-castus is sometimes called “the women’s herb.” It is used for menstrual cycle irregularities, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), a more severe form of PMS called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and symptoms of menopause. It is also used for treating “lumpy” (fibrocystic) breastsfemale infertility, preventing miscarriagein women with low levels of a hormone called progesterone, controlling bleeding and helping the body force out the placenta after childbirth, and increasing breast milk.

Some men use vitex agnus-castus for increasing the flow of urine, for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and for reducing sexual desire. Historians say that monks chewed chaste tree parts to make it easier to maintain their celibacy.

Vitex agnus-castus is also used for acne, nervousness, dementia, joint conditions,colds, upset stomachspleen disorders, headachesmigraineeye pain, body inflammation, and swelling.

Some people apply vitex agnus-castus to the skin to flush out parasites and to prevent insect bites and stings.

Parts Used - Fresh fruiting berry and Certified Grain Alcohol.

The German Commission E has approved of vitex berries to support a healthy and regular menstrual cycle. Studies have shown efficacy in reducing the unpleasant symptoms of the menstrual cycle. When combined with other herbal ingredients, vitex has been shown to support menopausal health.

Precautions - Men shouldn't take chaste berry. Testicular atrophy could result after repeated use. Binging on sugar, alcohol, or cannabis will block the herb's action on dopamine receptors in the brain and cancel out its effects. Not recommended while pregnant.
