Description
Used traditionally in Western herbal medicine to relieve premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms including breast tenderness and relieve painful or irregular periods.

Features and benefits

In Western herbal medicine, vitex is:

  • Traditionally used to reduce symptoms of premenstrual tension such as breast tenderness
  • Traditionally taken to relieve period pain (also known as dysmenorrhoea)
  • Traditionally utilised to regulate a healthy menstrual cycle and reduce irregular periods
  • Traditionally used to maintain the health of the female reproductive system

How it works

Most women have a regular period for around 40 years, experiencing up to 500 menstrual cycles over this time.1

During this phase of life, many women experience symptoms of PMS in the days before the onset of their monthly period.2 For example, some women experience premenstrual breast pain (mastalgia).

Others experience period pain prior to or during their periods which is often felt as an aching or gripping sensation3 or have an irregular and unpredictable cycle.1

Period-related issues often affect a woman’s quality of life and can result in time away from school and work, depending on their severity.1

PMS symptom and period pain relief

In Western herbal medicine, vitex is traditionally taken to relieve both period pain and PMS symptoms such as breast tenderness.

Oriental Botanicals Vitex includes equivalent to 1g Vitex agnus-castus (or chaste tree) fruit per tablet.

Herbal help for irregular periods

Some women experience an irregular menstrual cycle for much of their life.3 Vitex is traditionally used in Western herbal medicine for relief of irregular periods, and to maintain a healthy menstrual cycle and women’s reproductive system.

Testimonials

In early 2016 my husband and I started trying to conceive our first child. I had always had a regular cycle of 33 days prior to this. However, as soon as we started trying to conceive my cycles went haywire. I was having cycles of 52 days, 45 days, 40 days etc. All investigations came back negative- The only reasoning I was given was likely to be stress. Having such long cycles whilst trying to conceive was frustrating and emotionally taking its toll, because the length of time between ovulation or "fertile periods" was so long. In September I started taking Vitex Excel and was so thrilled that my cycle length was reduced back to 33 days that same month!! The following month I used a different brand of Vitex preparation and was very disappointed to see my cycle length back up to 45 days. I switched back onto the Oriental Botanicals Vitex Excel for the next cycle with great results. After a year of menstrual cycle turmoil I am very grateful to Oriental Botanicals.

For two years I have had irregular cycles lasting anywhere between 38 and 73 days! My first cycle of using vitex I had a 32 day cycle and ovulated on cycle day 16! I can't wait to keep using this product and continue to see improvement in my cycles and fertility.
