Agnus castus, also known as vitex or chastberry, is a traditional herb native to Central Asia and the
Mediterranean region. It has been traditionally used to support healthy reproductive function in women.
Premenstrual tension (PMT), also called premenstrual syndrome, is a condition that affects many menstruating
women one to two weeks before they begin menstruation. Symptoms may include abdominal bloating,
cramping, breast tenderness and swelling, fatigue, irritability, anxiety, headache, and more. Research
suggests that Agnus castus may play an important role in supporting a woman’s natural response to PMT.
Agnus Castus-V may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals wishing to supplement with this herb.
