Vitex has an effect on the pituitary gland, which is located in the brain and produces hormones that stimulate the production of sex hormones. Vitex helps increase progesterone levels and normalize prolactin levels, restoring estrogen-progesterone balance to ease symptoms of PMS. Excess estrogen combined with a deficiency in progesterone can cause disruptions in the menstrual cycle.
Elevated levels of prolactin result in breast tenderness and pain, two classic symptoms of PMS.
