Premenstrual syndrome: what it is
The pre menstrual syndrome occurs cyclically in the days preceding the menstrual flow with water retention, increased breast tenderness, abdominal swelling, depression, irritability, insomnia. PMS is the consequence of several hormonal imbalances such as:
- low progesterone levels in the luteal phase,
- latent or manifest hyperprolactinaemia,
- alteration of aldosterone activity,
- nutritional deficiencies of magnesium,
The chaste tree is a useful plant for the contrast of menstrual cycle disorders and has its action point at the pituitary level. Chaste tree has as its main activity the antispasmodic, tonic and hormonal (progestin and antiestrogenic action). Traditionally used as an emmenagogue and sedative, in the premenstrual syndrome the efficacy of the agocastus is due to the dopaminergic activity which inhibits the secretion of prolactin and to the activation of beta-endorphins in the luteal phase.
The German Commission E recommends agocastus in cases of menstrual irregularities, premenstrual syndrome (especially physical symptoms) and to relieve mastodynia. The therapeutic use of chaste tree indicated by Dr. Campanini in her book “Dictionary of Phytotherapy and Medicinal Plants” is mainly for pelvic pain: nervous tension, menorrhagia and metrorrhagia, premenstrual syndrome (hyperfoll.).
