Physiologically, vitex promotes similar effects as a woman’s corpus luteum, increasing luteinizing hormone (LH) production by acting directly on the pituitary gland, and inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). It may also inhibit prolactin secretion. Traditionally taken in a dose of 20 drops two times daily or as directed by your physician. Container: 2 Fluid oz./60 ml. (approx. two months supply) $34.00
