MenoFix™ - Research Brief:
Chaste tree (Vitex agnus-castus) berries contain several different constituents, including flavonoids, iridoid glycosides, and terpenoids.
Although it contains no hormones or hormone-like substances, the herb influences hormonal activity by stimulating the pituitary gland to produce more luteinizing hormone (LH). It also indirectly increases progesterone levels and regulates estrogen/progesterone balance, which helps to normalize menstrual cycle.
Vitex also acts to lower elevated levels of another pituitary hormone, prolactin (the hormone that stimulates the breasts to make milk). Prolactin should be in balance with follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. High prolactin levels can cause amenorrhea (absent menstrual cycles). In such cases vitex may be useful in reestablishing a normal monthly cycle.
Before their periods, many women find themselves irritable, depressed, and bloated. These typical PMS symptoms may occur because of an insufficient production of progesterone in the two weeks prior to menstruation. Vitex helps to normalize the ratio of progesterone to estrogen, thus providing relief from these monthly discomforts.
Many women suffer from the premenstrual breast tenderness and pain. Vitex's ability to lower prolactin concentrations as well as to restore the estrogen-progesterone balance may offer significant relief.
A woman with too much prolactin and too little progesterone in her body may not ovulate regularly, which make it difficult to become pregnant. Vitex can help to lower prolactin levels and aid in the normal functioning of the ovaries, thus providing opportunities for conception.
