Chaste tree (or chasteberry) is a native of the Mediterranean region, and is traditionally used to correct hormone imbalances in women and men.
Vitexin Pro™ contains a concentrated 5:1 extract equivalent to 1,000 mg of dried Chasteberry fruit (Vitex agnus-castus) per capsule. At this dosage, chasteberry extract may help stabilize hormones involved in ovulation, regularity and the extent of menstrual blood loss, and have a positive effect on female fertility and overall improvement in hormonal balance.
According to the European Medicine Agency, ethanol extract of Vitex agnus-castus contains constituents which inhibit prolactin release. The mechanism of action is presumed to be via dopaminergic effects resulting in changes of prolactin secretion from the anterior pituitary. Reduction in prolactin levels affects the Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and estrogen levels in females and testosterone levels in men
