Chasteberry Plus by Metagenics supports menstrual regularity and relieves menstrual symptoms.
Menstrual symptoms can be a terrible experience. That’s why Metagenics formulated Chasteberry Plus. It contains not only chasteberry fruit (Vitex) but also black cohosh to help reduce those sometimes terrible cramps and discomfort associated with your cycle.
Research has shown that chasteberry fruit (Vitex) reduces pain and discomfort by more than 50% after two months of use and reduces breast discomfort experienced with menstrual cycles by 45%-85% within three months of use.
Several research studies have also shown Chasteberry (Vitex) to be as effective as low-dose estrogen therapy (birth control pills) in regulating the menstrual cycle.
They’ve also included ashwagandha (Withania), which has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to regulate and normalize hormone pathways, support healthy estrogen levels, increase libido and decrease stress. It’s an all-around fantastic herb for all things hormones.
One paper on ashwagandha in which the authors reviewed 42 research studies from 1965 to 2017 stated that “Sexual behavior indices such as female sexual function index and female sexual distress index improve statistically significant after WS extract administration.” and that “Based on the results, it deems that Withania somnifera has a positive effect in the treatment of infertility both in male and female.”
Another great part of that review is that the scientists reported little or no side effects in any of the studies, supporting Ayurveda’s historical use of ashwagandha being a very safe herb.
