Vitex (Vitex agnus castus), more precisely the fruit of this plant, is a treasure trove of unique compounds that have a very beneficial effect on the endocrine system, especially feminine. These include diterpenes, flavonoids, glycoside iridoids and essential oils. They help to stabilize the level of two important hormones – prolactin and progesterone. In addition, they show activity in the opioid system and stimulate the release of β-endorphins. This action translates into a better mood and allows getting rid of the adverse symptoms that usually arise in case of disturbed hormonal homeostasis.
Preparations from the category are most popular among the ladies. They work perfectly in case of typically female ailments – they regulate the menstrual cycle, relieve PMS symptoms, and reduce the negative effects of menopause. In addition, they improve skin condition, especially if problems with complexion are the result of hormonal disorders. Studies also suggest that the fruit of the plant has a beneficial effect on ovulation and it increases the chance of conceiving offspring. For this reason, supplements based on Vitex are often recommended for women struggling with the weakening of fertility.
