FUNCTIONS

Agnus castus, also known as vitex or chastberry, is a traditional herb native to Central Asia and the

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.
