Helps maintain comfort before and during the menstrual cycle.
Chaste tree is a helpful plant for women that is known to be beneficial for menstrual cycle discomfort. Indeed, the chaste tree is widely used as a "hormone regulator" and more especially to regulate female hormones. It is indicated for premenstrual syndrome symptoms and menstrual discomfort in general: cramps, water retention, bloating, irritability, breast tenderness, painful periods, etc.
Studies have shown that the chaste tree works in the brain, mainly by affecting dopamine, a neurotransmitter that influences the release of prolactin, which raises progesterone levels. Thus, it aims primarily to restore the balance between oestrogen and progesterone over the course of the menstrual cycle by regulating the hormone balance and stimulating the production of progesterone during the luteal phase of the cycle (second part of the menstrual cycle).
DID YOU KNOW?
In ancient times, the chaste tree was a symbol of chastity and was used mainly as a substitute for pepper to repress sexual desire, which is why it is also known as "monk's pepper".
SIDE EFFETCS :
Chaste tree consumption is contraindicated for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as people with breast cancer or with family history of this type of cancer. It may also be contraindicated in people who have pituitary gland problems or PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and people taking special medical treatments, except under a physician's supervision. Furthermore, as a precaution, women who are following an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) protocol should not take chaste tree or any other plant whose mechanisms of action are similar.
