What is Agnus Castus?
Vitex agnus-castus, also called vitex, chaste tree (or chastetree), chasteberry, Abraham's balm, lilac chastetree, or monk's pepper, is a tree native of the Mediterranean region.
In ancient times, it was believed to be an anaphrodisiac, hence the name chaste tree.
What does Agnus Castus do?
It can be used for menstrual cycle irregularities and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). A study in London showed a 60% group reduction or elimination of PMS symptoms such as anxiety, nervous tension, insomnia, or mood changes, from subjects who were taking dried Agnus Castus capsules.
People taking dopamine-related medications or Parkinson’s disease medications should avoid using chasteberry. Women on birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, or having a hormone-sensitive condition, such as breast cancer, are advised not to use chasteberry.
Use of vitex is discouraged for pregnant or breastfeeding women, and for children.
