Vitex Berry / Man Jing Zi
Why we love it
Vitex Berry is an ideal hormone balancer—especially in cases of estrogen dominance—and helps keep the menstrual cycle regular.
How it heals
In Chinese medicine, Vitex Berry disperses wind and clears heat, making it especially useful for dizziness, headaches, and migraines. It also reduces stiffness, numbness, and general heaviness.
In Western medicine, Vitex Berry increases production of Luteinizing hormone (LH) and prolactin, reduces pain and inflammation, and protects against cell damage—which helps prevent things like cancer and heart disease.
Fun Fact: Vitex Berry comes from the chaste tree, named for its use by monks in the Middle Ages to suppress sexual desire.
How we use it
“You’ll notice that the Chinese medicinal uses of this herb do not explicitly relate to the menstrual cycle. While Vitex was not typically used in ancient Chinese medicine for hormonal issues, it is now an absolute staple in the modern herbalist’s toolkit for anything related to the cycle.”
