Chasteberry or Chastetree (Vitex agnus-castus) is a small flowering shrub that is native to the Mediterranean region. The herb has been used for centuries for a variety of purposes, including as a herbal remedy for mood disorders and pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) in women.

Chasteberry is frequently used as a calming supplement in horses. According to anecdotal reports, it can help to make moody mares and aggressive stallions more cooperative and easier to handle.

A number of studies have looked at the efficacy of chasteberry extracts in horses for the treatment of hormonal problems. It has been studied in horses with Equine Cushing’s Disease (PPID), laminitis and insulin iesistance.

Preliminary research suggests that chasteberry can help to improve mood, energy levels, shedding out and abnormal fat deposits such as cresty neck in horses. However, more research is needed to confirm these findings.

The safety profile of chasteberry appears to be good, with no reports of serious side effects or toxicity associated with its use in horses.
