Vitex PMS, perimenopause, irregular menstrual cycles and hormonal acne are complaints I frequently hear from many of our female clients.
Regardless of where a female is in her reproductive history, Vitex is often a botanical I like to use and here are some of the reasons why!
It can help to regulate abnormal menstrual cycles.
Helps reduce acne flare ups due to hormone imbalances.
It can help with estrogen dominant conditions such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and severe PMS.
It can help improve mood and sleep in perimenopausal women.
It can help reduce severity of PMS symptoms such as breast tenderness and anxiety.
I have used this powerful botanical on myself as well as with several of the women in our practice with great success to help restore hormonal balance. It can be taken in capsule form, liquid tincture or even consumed as a tea! It is powerful alone, or even better when used in combination with other herbs for hormone balance.
