CHASTE TREE BERRY
Our Chaste Tree Berry elixir aims to support a healthy menstrual cycle and assist women suffering from absent or infrequent cycles, PMS, period pain and menstrual acne.
The key ingredient, chaste tree berry (vitex agnus castus), has been shown to help balance estrogen and progesterone levels. However, it does not contain hormones. The benefits of this natural plant arise by stimulating the pituitary gland, specifically the production of a hormone called luteinizing hormone (LH). This indirectly levels progesterone production, which helps to regulate the menstrual cycle (1).
Clinical trials show that chaste tree berry has a significant reduction in symptoms of menstrual cramps and PMS including headache, breast pain and irritability (2). It may also assist with menstrual induced acne and skin issues.
If you are experiencing irregular or severe pain, we always recommend visiting your doctor or naturopath first.
Suggested Use: 10 - 20 drops (1 - 2ml) once per day into liquid.
Take daily for at least 3 months to see optimal results.
Do not take if you are using hormonal or oral contraceptives.
Do not take if you are pregnant.
*This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if chaste tree may interact with other medicines that you take.

"I've been using Chaste Tree Berry for about a month now. I had so few PMS symptoms that it took me by complete surprise. I had some cramping but didn't need to take any pain relievers."

"The most amazing brand and product that I can swear by.... It's a plant based health formula made of organic chaste tree berry and works absolute wonders for irregular cycles or cramps/ pain and other pms symptoms. It's literally the secret weapon of good naturopaths but super hard to find - especially in tincture form. Use it for three months - results are amazing."

"For me, Chaste Tree Berry has been an absolute game changer. After years of erratic cycles and brutal period cramps, I can happily say I now have a regular 28 day cycle and only need to take one ibuprofen on Day 1. My emotions are in check and it also cleared up my skin breakouts that I used to experience around my cycle. "
