Agnus castus exerts a balancing effect on the activity of the female sex hormones.This may also be of benefit in those suffering from fibroids and endometriosis,under the supervision of a Healthcare Professional.

Conditions Agnus Castus May Help

Include those listed below:

 

Menopause

Agnus castus may help in the menopause where the bleed is very heavy and too frequent. Agnus castus acts on the pituitary gland to increase the secretion of luteinising hormone (LH),which leads to greater production of progesterone during the second half of the menstrual cycle.

Menstrual Disorders

This hormonal shift favouring progesterone helps to reduce premenstrual symptoms and alleviates menstrual disorders such as heavy menstrual bleeding and painful periods, which are related to higher oestrogen dominance.

Correct progesterone levels ensure proper functioning of the thyroid. Agnus castus has also been reported to have the ability to inhibit the action of the hormone prolactin. This is relevant in PMS as it has been postulated that many who suffer with this syndrome have a greater sensitivity to prolactin.

Parkinson's Disease

It has been suggested by some researchers that the prolactin inhibitory action of Agnus castus may be of help in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease. This is a condition caused by a lack of dopamine secreted by the substantia nigra, which then gives rise to difficulties with co-ordination and control of skeletal muscles.

The metabolism of dopamine is intricately dependent on the amount of prolactin present. Reducing levels of prolactin reduces the rate of breakdown of dopamine in the brain, hence increasing the levels circulating in the tissue.

Acne

Agnus castus has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of acne in both men and women.
