CB - Chastetree berries, or simply Chasteberry - have a long traditional history of use to help balance hormonal systems. CB extract functions as an adaptogen in these hormone systems. Adaptogens are substances that assist in stabilizing physiology and promoting homeostasis. Homeostasis is a state of equilibrium in which the organism functions optimally.
Recommended dose: 3 to 6 grams daily or as recommended by your veterinarian. 1 scoop = 3 grams
Recent research into the actions of CB extract has shown it supports the activity of dopamine. Since dopamine regulates LH and FSH secretion, this is believed to be how the plant works to maintain balance in both males and females. Dopamine also regulates the secretion of prolactin and hormones from the PPI, the intermediate lobe of the pituitary, i.e. the POMC derived hormones beta-endorphin, alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone and ACTH.
In horses, CB extract has the potential to assist the body in maintaining homeostasis in a wide range of situations, including:
- Ovarian function and female hormone production
- Female behavior
- Male hormone production
- Male behavior
- Shedding (under the control of prolactin)
- Intermediate pituitary lobe hormone production
This concentrated extract means you can feed much less, which improves acceptance by the horse.
