Chastetree berry supports the female hormonal system and is a key herb ingredient in NutriPlex Formulas’ FemPlex. Current scientific literature, as well as a long history of use in traditional healing, supports the use of chastetree berry to help put the hormonal system back in balance.
The Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance
It’s very common for women, from puberty to menopause, to experience discomfort prior to their periods. The medical community has grouped accompanying concerns together and called them premenstrual syndrome. Symptoms vary in intensity from woman to woman, and may include breast tenderness, bloating, cramping, changes in body temperature, anxiety, headaches, and fatigue.
These symptoms are ultimately the result of a hormonal imbalance. This is usually brought on due to a lack of essential nutrients in the diet as well as environmental and emotional factors (such as stress, anxiety, depression, and others) that negatively affect the female hormonal system.
Chastetree Berry Helps Balance Hormones
Chastetree berry has been used for more than 2500 years in the Mediterranean region by natural healers to ease the effects of premenstrual difficulties. Like every plant that is used in healing, chastetree berry has an array of nutrients rather than just a single chemical of benefit.
Although chastetree berries are not a source of female hormones, their effect on dopamine — an important neurotransmitter that sends messages to the hormonal glands — leads to balanced hormones. By acting on the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, chemicals in chastetree berries are said to change the amounts of estrogen and progesterone in the body.
When the hormones are in balance, many of the primary symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome and menopause are reduced or even completely eliminated.
