What it is.
Also called vitex, chaste tree berry or monk's pepper, chasteberry is the fruit of the chaste tree. Actually a small shrub with violet flower spikes and long, slender leaves, the chaste tree is native to the Mediterranean region but grows in subtropical climates throughout the world. Its red berries are harvested in the autumn and then dried. They resemble peppercorns in shape and the taste they impart to a therapeutic cup of tea is distinctively peppery.

The use of chasteberry for 'female complaints' dates back to Hippocrates in the fourth century BC. Although the herb does not contain hormones or hormone like substances, it prompts the pituitary gland (located at the base of the brain) to send a signal to the ovaries to increase production of the f email hormone progesterone. Chasteberry also inhibits the excessive production prolactin, a hormone that primarily regulates breast-milk production but has other less understood actions as well.

Lamberts® Vitex is a standardised extract equivalent to 1000mg of dried vitex fruit.
