Chaste Tree Helps Hormone Havoc
Restore balance to your monthly cycle with the beautiful berry of the chaste tree. This berry has actually been shown to normalize crazy periods and relieve breast tenderness and other havoc-wreaking symptoms of PMS. As a tonic for the entire female reproductive system, it also comes to the rescue of perimenopausal women.
Chaste Tree Yesterday and Today
The chaste tree originates in Italy and Greece and its fruit has been used for over 2000 years to treat a variety of health complaints, from breast pain to impotence and almost everything in between. Today, chaste tree is used primarily to alleviate breast tenderness and other premenstrual and menopausal symptoms by normalizing the menstrual cycle. While its active ingredients have not yet been fully identified, it is thought that compounds called diterpenoids may be responsible for chaste tree’s powerful impact on the female reproductive system. These compounds work by acting on the pituitary, chaste tree also helps to balance the activity of the female hormones and reduce the extreme symptoms often associated with PMS.
Chaste Tree Balances Estrogen and Progesterone
Chaste Tree has been shown in studies to inhibit the pituitary from releasing too much of the hormone, prolactin, which is responsible for premenstrual breast swelling and pain. By reducing prolactin, this herb also indirectly balances the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, which in turn corrects a wide range of menstrual irregularities, including painful, heavy or absent periods and short menstrual cycles. In perimenopause, many women experience estrogen dominance caused by a decline in progesterone, and this can be one of the first physiological changes to cause noticeable symptoms. Early studies are finding chaste tree to be helpful for such symptoms as hot flashes and night sweats due to its ability to boost progesterone levels relative to estrogen.
Hormone balance definitely doesn’t happen overnight – it’s essential to take chaste tree for at least 3 menstrual cycles in order to experience its full benefits.
Orange Naturals Tincture Advantages
All Orange Naturals tinctures are made from organic or wild-crafted herbs. During tincture-making, our master herbalists ensure that the magic of every herb is unleashed. The result is a medicinal version of liquid gold. Each tincture is bursting with the healing power of nature. Rapid absorption of a tincture taken orally allows the body to quickly begin working to restore health on every level. The body can absorb up to 98% of the medicinal components of the Orange Naturals herbal tincture since absorption takes place immediately in the mouth. In contrast, herbs taken in capsule or tablet form much first be broken down by the digestive system and thus absorption can be significantly lower.
For best results, take chaste tree on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 2.5 ml of Orange Naturals Chaste Tree, 3 times per day. To dispense, fill the dropper half way, which gives you 1 ml. Repeat to get 2 ml, and the third time, only dispense half of what you pull into the dropper to get the last half ml.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, hormone-balancing drink!
It can take several cycles to rebalance your hormones, so chaste tree should be taken for at least 3 months before judging its effects. After your symptoms have disappeared, it may be necessary to take the herb for 3 to 6 more months just to keep your hormones on track! It is generally recommended that you take chaste tree in the morning.
