Please tell me more about it. Is this one pill called Vitex that has chasteberry in it or what?

link:Vitex
Chasteberry is mentioned in the link.
Snippet:
In the early menopausal years, this can be helpful, but during the "melt-down" years, when too much LH dilates blood vessels, causing hot flashes, panic attacks, and palpitations, vitex can become too much of a good thing.
I don't think it would help me.
I reached the "melt-down" point this summer; I'm in full hot flash mode, and do not need to add panic attacks or palpitations to the horror.

I actually use a tincture (the herb is mixed with alcohol) at the manufacturing company.
It's helped my horridly irregular periods/flooding/just debilitating periods (I'm 41 by the way).
It took about 3 months to see results. I do think it's been a very positive thing for me to do.
I use something from the Herbal Company "Quantum" called female hormone balance or also called Vitex.
I bought it via my local (then) health food store in NY (now I have moved to VT our health food place has it too).
It also helped my PMS AND my anxiety.
I take a daily iron pill as well.

I use Hot Flash by Source Naturals. I get it online at vitacost dot com. It is great. I had every menopause symptom imaginable starting at 43. I noticed a difference immediately and within 3 weeks - almost all my symptoms were much better and most completely gone.

I tell you this--you can lose your mind with perimenopause...I mean with the symptoms and all...it's very scary, especially if you have a lot of heavy periods.

I also use Hot Flash and works very well. Also use Emerita hormone creams, phytoestrogen and progesterone. Am able to get these at the health food store where I live. Also, Omege essental fatty acids supposed to help with hot flashes.
