The Chase tree, also known as the Vitex agnus-castus, is a plant that bears small purple berries. These berries not only add ornamental value but also possess several medicinal properties. In traditional medicine, the chase tree berry has been used to balance hormones and alleviate menstrual discomfort for over 2,000 years.
Recent studies have confirmed that chase tree berries are effective in reducing premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms such as breast tenderness, mood swings, and cramps. The berries contain flavonoids that inhibit the secretion of follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone thus reducing hormonal imbalances.
Furthermore, the berries have anti-inflammatory effects and can be used to treat skin disorders like acne and eczema. In conclusion, Chase tree berry benefits extend beyond aesthetic value to provide excellent medicinal values beneficial to human health.
