AGNUS CASTUS - (chaste berry) is a traditional herb that has been used historically for hormonal imbalances in women. More recently, numerous clinical research studies have provided evidence as a important herbal treatment for infertility, female hormonal imbalance, ovulatory irregularity, anovulation, amenorrhea, and other disorders related to hormone function in women.
In research studies, agnus castus has displayed facility in relieving symptoms or addressing deficiencies caused by hormonal imbalances and may be helpful for women who do not have regular or normal menstrual cycles.
It may be very supportive as well for women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). In clinical trials, chaste berry has been demonstrated to enhance fertility, "and women with fertility disorders benefited from agnus castus, with more pregnancies then in placebo groups". Because it impacts key hormones that regulate and balance the menstrual cycle, agnus castus can help balance the levels and ratios of hormones required for normal menstrual function, ovulation, and fertility.
Agnus castus is safe; it may be used by women seeking to become pregnant to increase chances of conception. More specifically, it can be used by women with irregular ovulatory function and by women with shorter related phases. may also be used after discontinuing use of birth control pills to restore normal ovulation. As agnus castus has the effect of stimulating and normalizing pituitary gland functions, especially its progesterone function, agnus castus may be particularly useful in cases of low levels of progesterone during the related phase (the period between ovulation and the end of the menstrual cycle).
This herb may be very effective in promoting normal function, regular and frequent ovulation, and support fertility and conception.
