FLOW CHART OF Chaste berry extract
Chaste berry extract
Vitex agnus-castus tree is a shrub that is native to the Mediterranean and Central Asia. The fruit and seed are used to make medicine.
Vitex agnus-castus is used for conditions related to the menstrual cycle such as breast pain (mastalgia), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and more severe PMS symptoms (premenstrual dysphoric disorder or PMDD). It is also used for many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses.
How does it work
Vitex agnus-castus seems to affect many hormones that are involved in the female reproductive cycle.
Uses & Effectiveness
Possibly Effective for
Breast pain (mastalgia). Taking vitex agnus-castus daily seems to relieve pain in people who experience breast pain during the menstrual cycle.
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some research shows that taking vitex agnus-castus decreases some symptoms of PMS, especially breast pain or tenderness, depressed mood or moodiness, anxiety, anger, and headache.
Possibly Ineffective for
Fractures. Taking vitex agnus-castus extract does not seem to improve the healing of broken bones.
Insufficient Evidence for
Inability to become pregnant within a year of trying to conceive (infertility). Early research shows that taking vitex agnus-castus does not improve the chance of becoming pregnant.
Insect repellent. Early research shows that applying vitex agnus-castus seed extract to the skin repels ticks and fleas for 6 hours, mosquitoes for 3 to 8 hours, and biting flies for 3 hours.
When taken by mouth: Vitex agnus-castus fruit extract is LIKELY SAFE for most people when taken appropriately for up to 3 months. Uncommon side effects include upset stomach, nausea, rash, headaches, acne, trouble sleeping, and weight gain. Some people notice a change in menstrual flow when they start taking vitex agnus-castus.
When applied to the skin:There isn't enough reliable information to know if vitex agnus-castus is safe or what the side effects might be.Special Precautions and Warnings
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Using vitex agnus-castus during pregnancy or breast-feeding is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. The concern is that vitex agnus-castus can interfere with hormones. Don't use it if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Hormone-sensitive conditions such as endometriosis; uterine fibroids; or cancer of the breast, uterus, or ovaries: Vitex agnus-castus can affect hormones and might affect estrogen levels. Don't use vitex agnus-castus if you have a hormone-sensitive condition.
In vitro fertilization: Vitex agnus-castus can interfere with the effectiveness of in vitro fertilization. Don't use vitex agnus-castus if you are undergoing this procedure.
Parkinson disease. Vitex agnus-castus contains chemicals that affect the brain. These chemicals affect the brain similarly to some medications used for Parkinson disease. Therefore, vitex agnus-castus might affect therapy for Parkinson disease.
Schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders. Vitex agnus-castus seems to affect a chemical in the brain called dopamine. Some medications for mental disorders help to decrease dopamine. Therefore, taking vitex agnus-castus might affect therapy for certain mental disorders.
Be cautious with this combination

Some medications for mental conditions include chlorpromazine (Thorazine), clozapine (Clozaril), fluphenazine (Prolixin), haloperidol (Haldol), olanzapine (Zyprexa), perphenazine (Trilafon),), quetiapine (Seroquel), risperidone (Risperdal), thioridazine (Mellaril), thiothixene (Navane), and others.
Medications used for Parkinson disease (Dopamine agonists) interacts with VITEX AGNUS-CASTUS

Some medications used for Parkinson disease include bromocriptine (Parlodel), levodopa (Dopar, component of Sinemet), pramipexole (Mirapex), ropinirole (Requip), and others.
Metoclopramide (Reglan) interacts with VITEX AGNUS-CASTUS
