Vitex has a history of thousands of years of medicinal use. Vitex supports the endocrine system to allow it to find a natural balance. In placebo controlled research , vitex was shown to stimulate the natural secretion of melatonin in a dose-dependent manner. Melatonin, by itself, may fulfill all the ideal requirements of a future glaucoma treatment, according to one researcher. Melatonin not only protects ocular tissue against free radical damage, but it also has a direct effect on intraocular pressure ("IOP") reduction. Natural ways to boost melatonin production are of great interest to glaucoma patients.

Full Spectrum Vitex Extract combines a standardized extract of chaste tree berries, concentrated to 0.5% agnusides, with whole berries. Vitex modifies the effect of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands. This helps regulate and balance female hormone production. Combining the extract with the whole berry insures that the full spectrum of vitex compounds are included.
