Organic Vitex Berries (Chaste Tree)
I am using the berries for Cushing’s Syndrome on my horse. I ground the berries and give my 22 year old mare 2 Tbsp. with a bit of beet pulp. I bought a equine brand of ground chaste tree berries but the berries had absolutely no smell to them. The OM berries have a very distinctive smell and my mare loves it. I would buy the product gain. Thank you!
Om Organics is always great. thanks!
Great for horses.
These are fresh and work well on my moody horse (mare). Mixed with raspberry leaves they keep her Mariah tendencies in check.
