Vitex is a powerful female hormonal tonic that supports the Womb Heart or HPO axis (hypothalamus-pituitary-ovary). Dr. Carrie Jones refers to it as an ovarian adaptogen, although it doesn’t exactly meet the requirements of an adaptogenic herb.
According to Chinese Medicine, vitex or man jing zi, is in the category of Cool, Acrid Herbs that Release the Exterior. It is both bitter and acrid. It has an affinity for the head, as well as the Liver and Stomach. Vitex can support clearing the head when the Liver becomes overactive and Yang rises up creating headaches or redness and pain in the eyes.
From a hormonal perspective, it supports progesterone production by improving signaling from the brain to the ovaries for the maturation of the egg during the follicular phase. It gives the best results when taken consistently in the morning for several months.
Common indications for use: irregular ovulation, post pill amenorrhea, PMS symptoms, short luteal phase, spotting before flow, infertility, peri-menopausal symptoms including irregular cycles, painful periods
Take 2 dropperfuls every morning. Use consistently for the best results. One dropperful is approximately 30 drops.
Organic vitex berries, GF vodka
