Relieve Common PMS Symptoms
Vitex has been shown to help alleviate common PMS symptoms for many women, including breast discomfort, mood swings, and headaches, by supporting healthy prolactin levels in women prone to PMS.
Supports Regular Menstrual Cycles
Vitex can promote healthy progesterone levels, which is important for maintaining a normal menstrual cycle, keeping adequate energy levels, and for ovarian health.

Vitex is a phytochemical-rich herbal supplement extracted from the chaste tree leaves and berries .
I went off The Pill after having taking it for 14 years and am trying to conceive, however my cycle was very irregular. I started taking Vitex & Myo & D-Chiro Inositol and got my period the next day and my cycle has become regular ever since! I haven't experienced any negative side effects except for a decreased appetite, however I'm not positive that is 100% because of these supplements. It's given me huge piece of mind just to have a regular cycle again to help us in trying to conceive!
Having been diagnosed with PMDD, I resisted the antidepressants my gynecologist prescribed for me. After researching Vitex, I tried it. I take it only during the luteal phase and saw a difference from the onset. Marked improvement in moodiness, bloating and quality of sleep!
I can’t say for certain what it’s doing or if it’s doing anything at all. I’ve been taking one pill daily along with the Myo & D-Chiro Inositol for a little over 2 weeks now, started taking both just after my period stopped. I’ve been having irregular periods since coming off the depo shot 2 years ago, really hope these supplements can help regulate my cycles.
I took one a day as directed, and one zinc (+ magnesium + b6) a day. I hadn’t menstruated in 3+ months, and was feeling so lethargic. After doing some research, I put the pieces together in speculating I might have PCOS. Taking these vitamins was my last resort before going to a doctor. I really wasn’t expecting this to work, although I had high hopes. I’m happy it actually works! It’s a little pricey, but worth the investment. I like that the Vitex bottle will last four months.
So yes, I was feeling more energetic after about a week, got the period after 3 weeks. Today is technically day 1 of bleeding and I had gnarly cramps. I don’t usually get cramps but the pain was enough to make me cry, feel nauseous and writhe around in pain until I took Advil. It was kinda scary. I’m guessing it’s just the prostaglandins working extra hard? I’m going to try this out for a year and see how it goes.
Btw, I have been taking doxycycline pills, applying benzoyl peroxide or tretinoin creams to treat acne for a couple years now, successfully. I don’t know how the vitamins will improve my complexion. Unfortunately, doxycycline kills pesky bacteria as well as probiotics you need for healthy digestion. So that means adding probiotics to the daily cocktail, but it would be great if the vitamins eliminated doxy and probiotics! Too many pills.
I will also say this - working out regularly 5 days a week without any vitamins actually helped regulate my cycle after about 4-6 months? Of course, the biggest challenges is committing to that lifestyle. It took 6-8 months to see major physical changes.
I have been taking Myo-inositol/D-chiro inositol as well as the Zinc supplements for a while now and while they have successfully regulated my cycle.. I recently started taking Vitex and man oh man! I just cannot say enough good stuff about this thing! I have energy like I haven’t had in YEARS! Nothing seems to upset me.. I’m just happy all the time and can do soooo much more willingly with all this new found energy! Have no idea if it’s related but I’ve had this lower back fatigue that just brings me down all the time but ever since I started taking this alll of that has just disappeared. Truly truly grateful to have found wholesome story and these supplements!
