Vitex 400mg 60 vegetable capsules
A controlled clinical trial found that women taking a concentrated vitex extract for three menstrual cycles had a significant reduction in symptoms of PMS, including irritability, mood swings, headache, and breast tenderness.
A review of other trials and case reports suggests there is at least preliminary support that vitex should be considered for women with irregular periods, infertility, and mildly elevated prolactin levels. According to one small trial, acne associated with PMS, may also be reduced using vitex.
With its emphasis on long-term balancing of a woman’s hormonal system, vitex is not a fast-acting herb and is unlikely to give immediate relief to the discomfort associated with PMS.
Side effects may include minor stomach upset and a mild skin rash with itching. Vitex is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
