Chaste berries have a slightly peppery flavour. They’re a powerful herb that has been used since ancient Greek and Roman times. The Greek physician Dioscorides recommended it to help the wives of soldiers remain chaste while their husbands were in battle. Monks in the middle ages used vitex for similar purposes as well. Our chaste berry is organically grown in Morocco.
Taken internally as a tea, decoction, powder, capsules, or extract. Can also be used as a seasoning for food.
Chaste tree berries are most commonly used in the treatment of menstrual disorders, including PMS, infertility, PCOS, and acne. Chaste tree berries are especially interesting because in higher doses they can help to increase progesterone and decrease estrogen and testosterone, whereas lower doses can potentially decrease progesterone production. Chaste berries are extremely powerful and should be used alongside guidance from a qualified practitioner.
