Since the time of Hippocrates, chaste berry has been recommended for menstrual complaints. Although it contains no hormones or hormone-like substances, the herb influences hormonal activity by stimulating the pituitary gland at the base of the brain to produce more luteinizing hormone (LH). This, in turn, signals the ovaries to produce more of the hormone progesterone. Chaste berry also acts to lower elevated levels of a second pituitary hormone, prolactin, which is involved in breast-milk production.
Indigenous to the Mediterranean region, the chaste tree–actually a small shrub that bears violet flowers and reddish blackberries.
