Chaste Tree Berry Extract (Vitex agnus castus) inhibits prolactin release from the anterior pituitary and promotes progesterone’s effects.

Red Clover Extract (Trifoliium pretense) has been shown in research to offer cancer protection. This is due to the isoflavonoid content of Red Clover binding to estradiol receptors in the breast and ovaries, which may prevent endogenous estradiol from initiating the proliferation of cancer cells in the breasts and ovaries. The isoflavonoids in Red Clover also help to prevent the increased rigidity of blood vessels that occurs as a result of declining estrogen production during and after female menopause.
