Chasteberry

The ALL Herbs Room 220px-Vitex-agnus-castus-flowers

Part used: Fruit
Key Action: Hormone Balancer. Stimulates
breast milk



Vitex agnus-castus, also called Vitex, Chaste Tree, Chasteberry, Abraham's Balm[1] or Monk's Pepper, is a native of the Mediterranean region. It is one of the few temperate-zone species of Vitex, which is on the whole a genus of tropical and sub-tropical flowering plant.

Is Vitex Agnus-castus effective?
There is some scientific evidence that chasteberry can reduce symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), especially breast pain, bloating, depression, headache, and constipation. It may take up to three months of treatment before there is a noticeable improvement. Chasteberry may not be as effective for women who have the type of PMS that has food cravings, dizziness, sweating, and rapid heartbeat as its main symptoms.

There is also evidence that chasteberry might help improve acne after about six months of use.

Studies are beginning to show that chasteberry may help women who have trouble getting pregnant because they don't have enough of the hormone progesterone. But chasteberry doesn't work quickly. Women may need to be treated for up to 7 months.

Are there safety concerns?
Vitex agnus-castus seems to be safe for most people. Uncommon side effects include upset stomach, nausea, itching, rash, headaches, acne, trouble sleeping, and weight gain. Some women notice a change in menstrual flow when they start taking vitex agnus-castus.

Do not take vitex agnus-castus if:
You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
You have a hormone-sensitive condition such as endometriosis; uterine fibroids; or cancer of the breast, uterus, or ovaries.
You are trying to get pregnant using in-vitro fertilization.

Health benefits of fenugreek seeds

Fenugreek seeds are rich source of minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients.

The seeds are very good source of soluble dietary fiber. Soaking the seeds in water makes their outer coat soft and mucilaginous. 100 g of seeds provide 24.6 g or over 65% of dietary fiber.

Non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) which constitute major fiber content in the fenugreeks include saponins, hemicelluloses, mucilage, tannin, and pectin. These compounds help lower blood LDL-cholesterol levels by inhibiting bile salts re-absorption in the colon. They also bind to toxins in the food and helps to protect the colon mucus membrane from cancers.

NSPs (non-starch polysaccharides) increase the bulk of the food and augments bowel movements. Altogether, NSPs assist in smooth digestion and help relieve constipation ailments.

It has been established that amino-acid 4-hydroxy isoleucine present in the fenugreek seeds has facilitator action on insulin secretion. In addition, fiber in the seeds help lower rate of glucose absorption in the intestines thus controls blood sugar levels. The seeds are therefore recommended in diabetic diet.

The seeds contain many phytochemical compounds such as choline, trigonelline diosgenin, yamogenin, gitogenin, tigogenin and neotigogens. Together, these compounds account for the medicinal properties of fenugreeks.

This prized spice is an excellent source of minerals like copper, potassium, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc, manganese, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure by countering action on sodium. Iron is essential for red blood cell production and as a co-factor for cytochrome-oxidases enzymes.

It is also rich in many vital vitamins including thiamin, pyridoxine (vit.B-6), folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin-A and vitamin-C that are essential nutrients for optimum health.


Medicinal uses of fenugreek seed

Its seeds have been used in many traditional medicines as laxative, digestive, and as a remedy for cough and bronchitis.

If used regularly, fenugreeks may help control cholesterol, triglyceride as well as high blood sugar (glycemic) levels in diabetics.

Fenugreek seeds added to cereals and wheat flour (bread) or made in gruel, given to the nursing mothers to increase milk synthesis.
