Chaste Tree Berry (Vitex agnus castus) has been used for at least 2,500 years and has been documented to have been used in ancient Greece (Hippocrates 460-377 B.C.) to relive premenstrual conditions. Chaste Tree Berry is thought to affect the pituitary gland which sends chemical messages to regulate the two main hormones estrogen and progesterone. It is also known to help alleviate migraines and acne related to PMS. In a research study in Germany in 1988, the study indicated that the berries have a progesterogenic effect, acting on the pituitary gland, which regulates the menstrual cycle. Some studies have shown Chaste Tree berries to be valuable in treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and increasing fertility.(Schellenberg 2001).
Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) root is a native to Canada and the eastern states of the US growing as far south as Florida. Used for centuries by Native Americans, Black Cohosh Root has been used for problems associated with menopause. Black Cohosh acts as a powerful relaxant and normalizer to the female productive system and is beneficial in cases of painful or delayed menstruation, and ovarian cramps. It can alleviate period pains, cramps, menopausal symptoms, and hot flashes.
