Vitex contains several different constituents. The whole fruit extract, rather than one of its individual constituents, appears to be necessary for the medicinal activity of vitex. Vitex does not contain hormones. The benefits of vitex stem from its actions upon the pituitary gland—specifically on the production of a hormone called luteinizing hormone (LH). This indirectly increases progesterone production and helps regulate the menstrual cycle. Vitex also keeps prolactin secretion in check. The ability to decrease mildly elevated prolactin levels may benefit some infertile women as well as some women with breast tenderness associated with premenstrual (PMS).

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.
