Vitex Agnus Castus is an herbal ingredient in skinB5 Extra Strength Acne Control Vitamins that provides further support in balancing hormones, which can be helpful for those who have hormonal acne, which is characterised by breakouts around monthly cycles and acne mostly in the chin and jawline areas. Vitex herb has been used in traditional medicine for centuries to support fertility and managed PMS symptoms. If you are pregnant, we strongly recommend that you consult with your healthcare provider before taking skinB5 supplements.
The amount of Vitex herb in the formulation is 125mg per tablet, which is reasonably low (compared to 1000mg per tablet in other products on the market). This is because our patented formulation's core acne-fighting ingredient is Vitamin B5, combined with other selected powerful clear skin vitamins and minerals to treat acne and help maintain clear skin.
Vitex herb itself does not contain hormones, rather it stimulates the pituitary gland, which is responsible for signalling the body to make the appropriate amounts of each hormone, therefore, it helps to bring balance and hence it is helpful in treating acne which is linked to hormonal imbalance.
The inclusion of Vitex in the skinB5 Extra Strength Acne Control Vitamins formulation is to boost the hormone balancing function of our formula.
