Vitex acts as a tonic (hormonal modulator), specifically for the female reproductive system. It is thought to work by normalizing abnormal ovarian function by affecting the pituitary gland. Prolactin is decreased via dopamine antagonistic effect, FSH is inhibited, and LH is stimulated. This enhances corpus luteum function with an increase in progesterone and decrease in estrogen. By balancing hormonal function, almost any disorder associated with the female reproductive system is positively affected.
Suggested Dosage: depends on the preparation used.
