Chasteberry has been proven to help increase progesterone levels in more than 60 years of clinical research.  In European Countries where Integrative Medicine is the Standard of Care, Chasteberry is approved and given as a first line treatment for, decreasing PMS symptoms and increasing fertility.

Multiple double blind placebo controlled studies have found women taking 500mg Chasteberry daily, increased their progesterone levels significantly and normalized the length of their menstrual cycles. 

Studies have shown that after 6 months of taking Chasteberry, 32% of women got pregnant with fewer than 2% of women having adverse side effects.

Progesterone provides a range of benefits. It alleviates mood swings, improves sleep, and relieves PMS symptoms. Progesterone levels are also incredibly important in getting pregnant and maintaining a pregnancy.  Progesterone production was thought to start declining around the age of 36, but now due to the stressors of life, studies are showing progesterone decline starting at age 28!

Vitamin C has been shown to raise progesterone in women with both low progesterone and luteal phase defect.  In various studies, where Vitamin C was dosed at 750mg/day,  within 3 menstrual cycles, serum progesterone increased by 16 nmol/L from, on average, 25 nmol/L to 41 nmol/L.  There is medical consensus that in order for a pregnancy to be viable, a minimum progesterone level of 32 nmol/L is necessary.

In addition to fertility support, Vitamin C is absolutely critical in collagen synthesis.  Without it, your body cannot make collagen!

Supplementing with Vitamin C is a natural way to boost your body’s production of collagen.  There are over 1900 studies showing supplementing with Vitamin C has been proven to:

  • Increase collagen deposits
  • Enhance formation of collagenous proteins
  • Increase Skin Hydration
  • Improve wound healing time
  • Reduce Wrinkles
  • Reduce Skin Inflammation

Many experts have compared Collagen vs Vitamin C supplementation and state that since Vitamin C helps with your body’s natural production of collagen, it is arguably better than supplementing with exogenous collagen that could be broken down in your gut.

Don’t forget that you want Liposomal Vitamin C, which is a more bioavailable and potent Vitamin C.
