Agnus Castus

Agnus Castus is also known as Vitex or Chaseberry. It is found in the Mediterranean and is a large shrub with lilac flowers.



Rich in flavonoids and tanins, it has traditionally been used to support female hormone balance throughout the reproductive life cycle.


Its primary use is in the relief of symptoms of pre-menstrual conditions such as PMS and pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Trials have shown Agnus Castus to alleviate mood changes, breast tenderness, bloating and cramps.


Similarly, during the menopause, Agnus Castus can help support hormones, relieving symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and help to regulate bleeding.


Trials using Agnus Castus in a complex have also shown it to have a positive impact on female fertility, thought to be via regulation of the menstrual cycle and stimulating ovulation.


Its hormone balancing ability also makes it a useful ingredient to support hormonal skin issues and can be found in complexes and tinctures for clearer skin.


Exciting research is also ongoing to investigate the potential antidiabetic effects. By inhibiting a-amylase and a-glucosidase it is thought to lower postprandial glucose levels.
