Chasteberry - Whole Berries (Monk's Pepper)
Chaste tree berry extract has been known to contain an active principle that binds to D2 dopamine receptors in the hypothalamus/anterior pituitary, inhibiting the release of prolactin. This makes for interesting reasearch of phytohormonal actions on "the happiness neurotransmittors" like serotonin and dopamine retention in our bodies when chaste berries are added to the mix.
