Aliness Chasteberry is a dietary supplement containing Chasteberry extract, standardized for two key bioactive substances: Aucubin (0.4%) and Agnuside (0.4%). The product is available in the form of vegan capsules. It is especially recommended for women struggling with troublesome symptoms of premenstrual syndrome or menopause.
Chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus) is a plant of the verbena family, which grows naturally in the Mediterranean area. It has small, spherical fruits, which are valued herbal materials. They are rich in biologically active components, which have exceptionally beneficial effects on the female body. Among them are mainly iridoid glycosides. Two of them, aucubin and agnuside, seem to have the greatest therapeutic importance.
How does chasteberry work?
The mechanism of action of chasteberry is well understood, and the medicinal properties of the plant have been documented by numerous scientific studies. It has been proved that active substances present in the fruits of the plant show affinity to dopamine receptors, which increases dopamine expression in the body. As a result, excessive prolactin production is inhibited and progesterone levels are regulated.
What are the benefits of taking chasteberry extracts?
The mechanism of action described above brings the most benefits to women. It contributes to the regulation of the menstrual cycle and alleviation of symptoms commonly known as premenstrual syndrome. Women who have entered the menopause period and have stopped menstruating can also count on the improvement of their mood. Studies have shown that women who take a preparation based on the chasteberry go through the menopause period more smoothly and do not experience the unpleasant negative symptoms typical of this period.
Fruit powder or extract?
When deciding on supplementation with Vitex, it is worth paying attention to the composition of the chosen preparation. The powdered raw material of the plant has an undetermined, probably quite low, the content of bioactive substances. It is better to use a fruit extract. Ideally, it should be standardized for the content of key bioactive substances. In the case of this product, there is a standardization of two different substances: aucubin and agnuside.
It is also recommended to take vitamin B6 during the period of supplementation with Vitex extract. It is involved in estrogen metabolism and is often recommended for women who struggle with PMS. In many studies on the properties of vitex and its effects on hormonal disorders, women have been given both the extract of the plant and vitamin B6.
The supplement is not suitable for women taking oral hormonal contraception or drugs with estrogen. In addition, it must not be combined with medications or other substances that affect dopamine levels.
