Vitex is a normalizing herb for the female reproductive system, a regulator of
the hormonal balance of estrogen and progesterone. This normalizing of hormones is what makes the herb valuable in treating painful and irregular menses, PMS, menopause and infertility. For chronic problems, it is most effective when taken over a prolonged period of time.
Vitex berry tinctures were also traditionally prescribed for pain and weakness in the limbs.
Should not be used in pregnant or lactating animals.
