Traditional Mediterranean Womens HerbVitex is a pink-violet flowered shrub common to southern Europe and the countries of the Mediterranean basin. Its round black berries have been used by women since ancient times to bring balance to the female reproductive system. The Greek physician Dioscorides mentioned chaste berry some 2,000 years ago. He noted that its Latin name agnus castus, meaning chaste lamb, referred to the reputed property of its seeds, when taken as a drink, to reduce sexual desire - an association that has not been confirmed by modern research. Hormonal Balance for Women of All AgesScientific research, while finding no effect on sexual desire, is confirming vitexs role in influencing female cycles. Vitex has been found to modify the activity of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands and in this way to help regulate and balance female hormone production.Specifically, modern research suggests that vitex inhibits the secretion of prolactin. Vitex is indispensable for supporting a healthy reproductive system in women. It is the perfect complement to any womens health program.
