I Hate My Hormones Fix


Um yeah, sound familiar? If So, read on..

Chasteberry (Vitex agnus castus), also known as monk’s pepper, is an ancient berry native to the Mediterranean and Asia. What is cool about this plant is that is has been used for 1000’s of years to help women with all kinds of gynecological issues. It is used prevalently throughout Europe for menstrual cycle irregularities including menopause. It has been proven in numerous studies to be safe and effective at stimulating and normalizing the pituitary gland. Luckily anyone can take it because it works to nourish and support the endocrine system to help it find its own balance. Whether you need help with fertility, nursing, menopause, irregular periods, PMS symptoms, it can have a healthy affect on it all because it is directly affecting the mother gland, our most important gland, the pituitary gland. This gland pretty much controls EVERYTHING in your body!

Vitex (chasteberry) will always enable what is appropriate to occur.“, David Hoffman, a well-known herbalist.
