it's supposed to regulate your hormones around that time of the month...or something.
"Vitex and acne. In this study, a chasteberry preparation was used in women with menstrual cycle abnormalities. Acne was either eliminated or improved during treatment.(6)
In another study, 117 women with four different types of acne were treated with a chasteberry preparation for 1-2 years. Improvement was seen after 6 weeks and by 3 months, about 70% were free of acne. Some treatment relapses were observed after 3-6 weeks.(7)
Taking Vitex. When using chaste tree berry, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t expect immediate results. It may not have much effect until it is taken for at least 3-6 months.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not the same as taking progesterone. You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t give it, stop it, and then expect a withdrawal bleed a few days later as you would if you were taking progesterone or synthetic progestins."
i'm taking it now, and have been for about a month or so. so i guess i won't know for awhile if it's working or not. but it's worth a try. it's not expensive. and it's a completely natural thing... it can't hurt.
