Ingredients

How Fym Cycle Works

Each serving of Fym Cycle features an evidence-based dose (100 mg) of chasteberry fruit extract. Chasteberry, also known as chaste tree, is a small tree native to Asia and the Mediterranean region; the tree bears fruits that have been used since the Middle Ages for  supporting gynecological issues. 1

In modern clinical applications, chasteberry fruit extract is used for supporting menstrual cycle regularity and easing symptoms of PMS. A recent open study of 36 women with PMS showed that daily chasteberry fruit extract supplementation reduced physical PMS symptoms in 69% of the test subjects after three months of use; 80% showed a decrease in psychological symptoms. 3 The duration of the luteal phase also doubled.

Research suggests that chasteberry fruit extract works through several mechanisms, including inhibition of prolactin secretion,  support for endorphin and dopamine function, and estrogenic  effects. 4,5,6

Fym Cycle is complemented with black cohosh root and rhizome extract as well as ashwagandha root extract, two adaptogenic herbs that research suggests help support healthy stress response and ease climacteric symptoms, which in turn can support healthy libido and reproductive function in females. 7,8
