Chaste tree berries are often used as a female tonic. They benefit both the body and the mind through their balancing and normalizing properties, and they're often used for support during change-of-life periods.
Chaste's benefits are normalizing and balancing. Chaste tree berries are primarily a tonic for the female reproductive system; they're often used for monthly discomforts and through change-of-life periods.
To use as a tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 tsp of herb, cover and steep 3 to 5 minutes.
The most important compounds in chaste tree berries are the iridoid glycosides, aucbin and agnoside, and flavonoids, including casticin, to which extracts are often standardized. Chaste tree berries also contain an essential oil (0.5 to 2%) and around 5% fatty acids, primarily alpha-linoleic acid.
Safety Guidelines: Not to be used during pregnancy. May counteract the effectiveness of birth control pills.
