The health benefits of chasteberry are mostly related to reproduction and, in women, to menstrual health. Despite containing no hormones or hormone-like compounds, this herb can actually influence your hormonal activity by stimulating the pituitary gland to create more luteinizing hormone (LH).
By doing this, the ovaries are triggered to increase their production of progesterone. Some of the other potential benefits of chasteberry include:
Alleviating PMS symptoms, such as bloating, depression and irritability — The herb may help normalize the ratio of progesterone to estrogen, which then soothes monthly discomforts. In one study of premenstrual women, it was found that 93 percent of those who took the herb reported a reduction in PMS symptoms.
Relieves menstruation pain — According to a 2005 study in the American Family Physician, chasteberry may help ease painful menstruation, uterine bleeding and breast discomfort in menstruating women.
Ease endometriosis symptoms — Taking standardized chasteberry extract for hormonal support may be helpful in easing the pain caused by this condition. The herb should be taken long-term, around 12 to 18 months, to be fully effective in this manner.
May help regulate menstrual cycle — chasteberry for women with irregular periods or those who are coming off of hormonal birth control.
Promote men's reproductive health — Despite being called "the women's herb," chasteberry may have benefits for men's health as well. According to EMedicineHealth, it may help increase urine flow, alleviate benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and turn off sexual desire.
