The Commission E approves the use of chasteberry fruit to treat menstrual cycle symptoms, premenstrual syndrome and mastodynia.
Nearly 80% of women of childbearing age suffer from premenstrual syndrome symptoms(PMS) (1). These symptoms can be physical and psychological (2).
Since these symptoms are personal, and can vary considerably from person to person, there are several treatments, some of which are very aggressive and do not fit every woman's needs.
Anastore offers a traditional, organic and 100% natural, remedy. Its effectiveness is proven by several clinical studies: The Chasteberry Extract (Vitex agnus castus).
The chasteberry, Vitex fruit, or monk’s pepper, (Vitex agnus castus L.) is a shrub native to the Mediterranean basin and central Asia with purple flowers and fruits that resemble peppercorns (3).
Hippocrates, in his gynaecological treatises (5th Century BC) referred to the Vitex agnus-castus (4). In Middle Ages it was a symbol of chastity and was consumed in monasteries, for this reason is also known as ‘monk’s pepper’ (5).
Modern studies have demonstrated that the effectiveness of Vitex agnus castus is connected with the presence of essential oil (0.5-0.8%), anti-inflammatory diterpene and antioxidant flavonoid (3, 4, 6).
Chasteberry fruits is use for the treatment of premenstrual syndrome, which has physical and psychological symptoms: headaches, cramps, fatigue, mood swings, irritability, to anxiety, sadness and sleeping problems. (2, 7, 8).
Chasteberry extracts also have positive effects on mastodynia (breast pain), due to their indirect effect on progesterone (9) and thank’s to the existence of dopaminergic which reduce prolactin levels (10). Preliminary testing supports the activity of the vitex fruit in cases of acne and infertility due to low levels of progesterone and hyperprolactinaemia (4, 5).
The European Medicines Agency has approved its traditional use for the treatment of premenstrual syndrome (11).
One dose of our 4:1 concentrated extract of organic chasteberry (Vitex agnus castus) is equivalent to 96 mg of dried fruit. It is advisable to take it a minimum of 3 months.
