Chaste Tree is used primarily for menstrual complaints and women’s issues. The flavonoids in Chaste Tree create a similar effect to the hormone progesterone, although the plant contains no hormonal compounds at all. When progesterone levels are low relative to estrogen levels, the result is often infertility, heavy bleeding, lack of periods, too-frequent periods, irregular periods, premenstrual syndrome with symptoms of many kinds, and menopausal bleeding irregularities. The progesterone-like capabilities of Chaste Tree are brought about because Chaste Tree acts on the pituitary gland in the brain, normalizing the release of both follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. This is really an amazing attribute. The effects of this action on the pituitary is to regulate the menstrual cycle and to slightly increase the production of progesterone in women who are having irregular cycles. Chaste Tree should be discontinued if pregnancy occurs although miscarriages have not been reported when it was used up until the pregnancy was recognized.
