Vitex if you're bodybuilding or in the mood to be not in the mood

Vitex. It sounds like the name of a roman centurion. Well, I suppose it may as well since it was used by the romans for certain pre-birth and after birth applications.

What is Vitex used for? Here's a short list.

1. At varying points in history, it was used as an anti-aphrodesiac, to reduce or quell the sex drive. Hence, the names chaste berry and chaste tree.

2. Vitex has been used to treat PMS and irregular menstrual cycles.

3. Vitex has been used to treat women who have experienced abnormal hair growth.

And, lastly, Vitex has been used as a component in bodybuilding supplements.
