Vitex - 300 mg - 90 Vcaps
Whether you're having trouble getting pregnant, suffer from PMS, or are entering menopause, with all of its infamous symptoms, Vitex can make life easier for you. Also called chaste berry, Vitex is known for its ability to nourish and support the female endocrine system as it regulates estrogen and progesterone levels.
Although Vitex or chaste berry is an herb, not a hormone, the pituitary gland responds to it by raising progesterone levels high enough for regular ovulation at the proper time, thereby improving chances for conception. Vitex also helps the body normalize after taking birth control, so conception is likely sooner.
PMS and menstrual problems - cramps, flooding, headaches depression, water retention, constipation, acne, breast tenderness, and irritability - are all eased by this wonderful herb. Because Vitex helps regulate cycles, you can more accurately calculate the start of your next period. And as you transition towards menopause, your body will become estrogen-dominant, causing hot flashes, irregular cycles, depression, mood swings, and flooding. Uterine fibroids, fibrocystic breasts, and endometriosis are also results of estrogen-dominance. Enhanced with Dong Quai - a Chinese herb known for relieving menopausal symptoms - Beeyoutiful's Vitex addresses these mid-life problems.
For whatever natural reason they're out of equilibrium, Vitex is a vital aid to help re-balance your hormones so you can feel "normal" again. Be sure to give your body a minimum of three cycles and up to a year to soak in and respond to the hormone stabilizing work of Vitex. Because it is safe for long-term use, many women take Vitex for several years in a row if necessary. It is a great companion for all stages of being a woman.
Suggested Usage: As an herbal dietary supplement, take 1 Vcap 2 to 3 times daily with water or meals.
Other Ingredients: Cellulose (capsule), Maltodextrin, Magnesium Stearate (vegetable source) and Silica. Vegetarian Formula.
Contains no: sugar, salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg or preservatives.
Warning: Do NOT take this product while pregnant or nursing. Although Vitex by itself is generally recognized as being safe and even helpful for pregnancy and nursing, Beeyoutiful's Vitex also contains Dong Quai Root. Dong Quai is great for balancing hormones, but not as much is known about this herb's safety during pregnancy and nursing. Therefore, we strongly advise NOT taking this product if you are pregnant or nursing. We added this product to primarily address hormone issues for menopausal women, but we now see the need for a separate Vitex only product and will be adding that soon.

I've found that Vitex does more than just lessen my cramping...it also regulates my otherwise abnormal cycles to a steady 31-34 days (instead of 29-41 days), as well as it seems to regulate my blood sugar levels. I read somewhere that your blood sugar can be effected by an imbalance of hormones. If your hormones are balanced, your blood sugar balances. This is indeed the case for me, since I used to suffer from hypoglycemia, and while I'm on Vitex, I don't seem to get sugar highs or lows.

After I had my first child, my cycles turned into nightmares. Some of the cramps I experienced were as painful as some of the contractions I had during labor! Instead of the typical two days of pain, the pain would last for five days or more. I came to dread that time of the month.
Now I take only one of these capsules a day with breakfast, and am already noticing a drastic change. My first cycle had significantly less symptoms, with only one day of pain and a headache for about five days. My second cycle was virtually pain free with only a headache on the first day!
I can't wait to see the improvement from here on out!
