These include irregular menstrual periods, a feeling of tension and swelling in the breasts (mastodynia) and monthly recurring complaints before the start of the menstrual period (premenstrual complaints) such as back pain, headaches, skin changes, exhaustion, water retention, cravings and irritability. The intake of AGNUS CASTUS AL can have a positive effect on the menstrual disorders mentioned.
Popular medicinal plant
Monk's pepper or chaste mud are the effective fruits of the medicinal plant Agnus Castus. The extract from the fruits can intervene in the hormonal balance by inhibiting the release of the hormone prolactin. Many women with elevated prolactin levels are prone to menstrual disorders and chest pain (mastodynia). By regulating the prolactin levels, Agnus Castus can have a positive effect on menstrual disorders.
Unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor, adults take 1 AGNUS CASTUS AL film-coated tablet whole daily with plenty of fluid. If possible, the film-coated tablet should always be taken at the same time of day. For a reliable effect, AGNUS CASTUS AL should be taken for at least 3 monthly cycles.
Avoiding nicotine and alcohol
Alcohol causes hormone levels to get mixed up. The cycle can shift. Alcohol draws water out of the body, causing more pain. With nicotine consumption, the blood vessels are not properly supplied with blood, which can lead to pain again. Therefore, alcohol and nicotine should be avoided if possible, especially during your period.
Healthy Diet Diet can affect menstrual cramps. In general, you should eat a balanced diet, lots of vegetables and fruit, as well as little meat and finished products. Adequate water intake is also important. Sugar should be avoided especially before your period. This also has a positive effect on the complexion. Regular exercise
People tend to fall back into a relieving posture when they are in pain. Movement improves blood circulation and has an antispasmodic effect. It doesn't have to be an excessive sports program. A few minutes of yoga, muscle relaxation exercises or a brisk walk lead to greater wellbeing.
Frequently asked questions and answers
Can AGNUS CASTUS AL also be taken by young women / teenagers?
There are insufficient studies in this regard. At a young age or puberty, the female body reacts particularly sensitively to hormonal changes. Since chastity fruits intervene in the hormonal balance, should not be taken in the early stages of female development.
When should I not take AGNUS CASTUS AL?
AGNUS CASUS AL must not be used in patients with pituitary tumors (growths of the pituitary gland) and breast cancer (breast cancer). Studies give evidence of a dopamine-like effect of chaste fruit. Therefore, if dopamine-inhibiting agents are taken at the same time, the effects of each other can be weakened.
AGNUS CASTUS AL must not be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. There are insufficient studies in this regard.
