Chasteberry

2 oz.

Chasteberry (also known as Vitex) is a fruit native to the Mediterranean region and Central Asia. Some potential benefits of chasteberry include:

Hormonal Balance: Chasteberry is perhaps best known for its ability to support hormonal balance, especially in women. It has been traditionally used to regulate menstrual cycles, alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and support fertility. Chaste berry may help normalize levels of estrogen and progesterone in the body, leading to more regular menstrual cycles and reduced symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

Menstrual Health: Chasteberry may help relieve symptoms associated with menstrual irregularities, such as irregular periods, heavy bleeding, and menstrual cramps. It may also help alleviate symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and mood swings, by supporting hormonal balance.

Fertility Support: Chasteberry may help regulate ovulation and improve the likelihood of conception by balancing reproductive hormones. Chaste berry may also support the health of the ovaries and promote overall reproductive health.

Acne Relief: Chasteberry has anti-androgenic properties, meaning it may help reduce the effects of excess androgens in the body. This can be beneficial for individuals experiencing hormonal acne, particularly women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Chaste berry may help improve acne by reducing sebum production and inflammation associated with hormonal imbalances.

Directions: add one teaspoon of chasteberry to hot water. Steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.  

TIP: If you have whole berries and a grinder that can handle hard berries, you might grind them coarsely to increase the surface area exposed to water, which can potentially make a stronger tea. However, this step is optional.

 

FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
