Janella’s PCOS Week: Chaste Tree

CHASTE TREE (vitex agnus cactus) to balance you hormones and nourish your ovaries. Women with PCOS have more of the male hormone ‘androgen’ than estrogens. Estrogens are also called ‘female hormones’.

Higher than normal androgen levels in women can prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulation) during each menstrual cycle, and can cause extra hair growth and acne, two signs of PCOS.

You’ll find chaste tree in tabs or liquid herbal extract at your health food store.
