Agnus Castus

Product Overview

Agnus Castus, also called vitex, chaste tree or monk’s pepper, has been used since the Romans to help ease symptoms of the menopause, the birth process and the relief of menstrual problems. Unlike the name suggests, ‘Castus’ (from the Latin for ‘chaste’) doesn’t repress sexual passion but it has been shown to regulate hormones and the female reproductive system.
