How Does Agnus Castus Work?
One of the cause of PMS is hormonal changes. Prolactin hormone is produced by pituitary gland located at the base of the brain. High levels of prolactin can cause a lack of progesterone hormone. Progesterone is necessary to balance the effects of oestrogen hormone. Insufficient progesterone results in oestrogen dominance.

Agnus Castus corrects hormonal imbalances by reducing prolactin and increasing progesterone, thereby relieving PMS symptoms.
