Vitex Infertility Pills -What are they and how they work

If you ever wondered what those Vitex Pills are, we break it down simple here it for you. They are natural infertility pills named after the herb Vitex Agnus Castus, familiarly known as the Monks Pepper, is sued to produce a standarized extract called chasteberry.

This herb was traditionally used to treat
hormonal imbalances in women. and nowadays it is used to treat other conditions such as:

  • Irregular ovulation
  • Amenorrhea (abscense of menstrual period)
  • Anovulation (abscense of ovulation)
  • Premenstrual symptoms (PMS), headache and mood swings
  • Policystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Peri menopausal and menopausal symptoms, especially hot flushes
How Vitex works? Vitex works on the pituitary gland, the hormone in charge of let our body know it has to produce the appropriate amounts of each hormone, among them, progesterone (involved in the menstrual cycle, gestation and embryogenesis), and on the other hand, reduces the amounts of prolactin (that would cause irregular menstrual cycles, infertility, impotence and milk production without being pregnant).

IT IS NOT A HORMONE. It boosts hormonal production.
