Say good-bye to PMS, menstrual irregularities or menopausal hot flashes. Chaste tree helps to stabilize your monthly cycle and relieve premenstrual and menopausal symptoms. Studies in Germany indicate that the berry of the chaste tree offers at least some relief from PMS symptoms in about 90% of women! Symptoms shown to improve most were cramps, irritability, headaches and breast tenderness. Sounds like a must for every woman!
Each ml contains 250 mg of organically grown chaste tree berry (Vitex agnus-castus). It is a 1:4 berry extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water, with organically grown cinnamon bark as a natural flavour enhancer.
Chaste tree is used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve premenstrual and menopausal symptoms.
It can take several cycles to rebalance your hormones, so chaste tree should be taken for at least 3 months before judging its effects. After your symptoms have disappeared, it may be necessary to take the herb for 3 to 6 more months just to keep your hormones on track! It is generally recommended that you take chaste tree in the morning. Use for a minimum of 3 months to see beneficial effects.
For best results, take chaste tree on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 2 ml, 3 times per day. To dispense, fill the dropper half way, which gives you 1 ml. Repeat to get 2 ml.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, hormone-balancing drink!
Caution: Please talk to your healthcare practitioner before using chaste tree if you are taking hormone-containing medications, such as progesterone preparations, oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
