Chasteberry Herb - Herbal Tea

Benefits of Chasteberry


Chasteberry Herb

Chasteberry, also known as Monk’s Pepper, was once thought to lower libido or sex drive.

Chasteberry was often chewed by monks to help them keep their vow of celibacy; Chasteberry since has been found to not affect sex drive.

The Chasteberry tree is native to the Mediterranean area and Europe but can also be found as an ornamental plant in the United States. The berry of the Chasteberry is what is most commonly used even though they contain the least amount of flavonoids in the entire plant.

Chasteberry reacts slowly in the body and it is suggested to use Chasteberry for 6 weeks to 3 months medicinally before you are able to see the effects. Chasteberry is available in the berry form, teas, oils and tinctures as well as capsule form.
