Menstruation is a normal and healthy part of being a woman. Unfortunately‚ unpleasant side effects sometimes are part of the process. Heavy bleeding‚ breast pain‚ abdominal bloating‚ irritability‚ mood swings‚ and irregular periods are common symptoms that you may experience along with your period.
You may be able to relieve menstrual symptoms by eating a well-balanced diet‚ and by getting plenty of exercise and rest. Another thing that may help you feel better is chaste tree extract. This extract may support reproductive health and comfort during periods. In addition‚ chaste tree extract provides flavonoids‚ iridoid glycosides‚ and terpenoids; all of these are antioxidants that help protect your cells from damage caused by harmful radicals known as free radicals‚ as well as toxins.
The easiest way to get chaste tree extract in your diet is by taking a dietary supplement like Pure Encapsulations’ Chaste Tree (Vitex).

Good for hormone balancing
My doctor recommended Chaste Tree in lieu of another herbal hormone balancing product. It has worked very well and has helped to stabilize some of the extreme moodiness I was experiencing.
