Product Details

One ounce, whole berry.100% Certified Kosher.

Vitex (Vitex agnus-castus), also known as chasteberry, chaste tree or monk's pepper, boasts a rich history intertwined with medicine and folklore. Ancient Greek texts by figures like Theophrastus mention the shrub, with its name "chaste tree" hinting at its supposed ability to curb sexual desire. Though this effect remains unproven scientifically, historical records suggest its use for menstrual regulation and balancing hormones.

Medicinally, Vitex has found a place in modern herbalism. The fruit and seeds are believed to influence hormones like progesterone and prolactin. Today, it's commonly used to address premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, particularly breast pain and mood swings. Some studies also show promise for its role in regulating irregular periods and alleviating menopausal discomfort.

Traditionally, cultures have associated the Vitex with promoting chastity and fidelity. In some practices, it was incorporated into rituals for protection and purification. Even its modern name, "monk's pepper," reflects this historical association with celibacy.
