Chaster Extract Water
Chaste Tree Water with Extract
What is Chaste Tree?
The chaste tree is a small (6 to 7 m) tree or shrub native to river banks in southern Europe and the Mediterranean region. The plant is cultivated in China. It blooms in summer, developing light purple flowers and palm-shaped leaves. The dark brown to black fruits are the size of peppercorns. These fruits have a pepperish aroma and flavor and are collected in autumn.
What is it used for?
The dried, ripe fruit is used in traditional medicine. The plant has been recognized since antiquity and has been described in works by Hippocrates (AD 460), Dioscorides (AD 40), and Theophrastus (AD 372). In Homer's epic The Iliad, the plant was featured as a symbol of chastity, capable of warding off evil. Early physicians recognized its effect on the female reproductive system, suggesting its use in controlling bleeding and expelling the placenta after birth. Monks have chewed it to decrease sexual desire.
Chaste tree extract has been used to manage symptoms related to premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and cyclic breast pain and may be a suitable alternative to standard drugs. Although the Complete German Commission E Monographs supports its use for PMS and cyclic breast pain, there are limited clinical trials to support these uses. Limited evidence exists for its use in menopause.
