Progest Fortify is a synergistic blend of high purity botanicals for supporting healthy hormone balance and reducing the symptoms of premenstrual tension.

Dopaminergic Activity – Vitex agnus castus is thought to exert some of its effects via binding to the dopaminergic D2 receptors, modulating hormonal activity and indirectly normalising progesterone. In a placebo controlled crossover double-blind study of 20 healthy men, vitex had different effects on prolactin release at different concentrations. Men received doses of 120 mg, 240 mg or 480 mg of a vitex extract daily for 14 days. There was a significant increase in prolactin level in men receiving the lowest dose, but a slight reduction in prolactin level in those receiving the higher doses.

Improving Prementrual Tension – Vitex agnus castus has shown to be helpful in improving symptoms of PMS including irritability, mood alteration, anger, headache, breast fullness and other premenstrual symptoms such as bloating.

Addressing Oestrogen Dominance – Increasing progesterone levels may alleviate symptoms stemming from excessive oestrogen levels. Both hormones may be assessed by DUTCH urine hormone testing.

Improvements on Female Fertility Health Markers – One study found that concentrations of FSH and estradiol were significantly decreased, as well as estradiol levels on ovulation day, in patients receiving Vitex agnus-castus. It was also found that the average time of serum positive ß-HCG test was decreased. Ovulation day, endometrial thickness, chemical and clinical pregnancy rates in the experimental group were significantly higher than the control group throughout the course of treatment.

Use in Pregnancy: There is some theoretical and traditional use of Vitex agnus-castus in the first trimester of pregnancy, to prevent miscarriage in patients with Progesterone deficiency. However this has not been extensively reproduced in clinical trials.

Known Side Effects
Vitex agnus-castus is considered safe and well tolerated. Any side effects associated are generally transient and mild. Sometimes reported are gastro-intestinal irritation and headaches.

Interactions: Vitex agnus-castus may affect female reproductive hormones and medicines such as oral contraceptives. Consider the goals of the patient before use.
