Vitex Combo - Clear Sailing Through Menopause
Vitex Combo is a model in itself of the equilibrium it brings to a woman’s body during a difficult phase of life changes. The seven ingredients that comprise Vitex Combo work together in a matchless synergy of complementary herbal actions.
Vitex Combo contains plants with natural hormone-balancing properties as well as herbal adaptogens which effectively address key symptomatic issues related to menopause, ranging from mood problems to hot flashes. (Adaptogens are healing agents that help the body to adapt to physical and emotional stresses.)
