Detailed Description

Black cohosh is recognized as one of the most popular herbs for the treatment of menopausal symptoms. Natural alternatives such as black cohosh are increasingly being selected as a side effect–free replacement to hormone replacement therapy. Black cohosh contains various glycosides such as actaein, cimicifungin, and racemosin; estrogenic substances; oleic and palmitic acid; phosphorus; tannins; triterpenes; and vitamins A and B5. It is considered to have a good antispasmodic property, and it has a long historical use in treating female disorders.The part used is the root.

Most North American women will spend the last third of their lives postmenopausal. During this time, chronically low levels of steroidal estrogens may lead to a number of short- and long-term medical sequelae such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, heart disease, and osteoporosis. While some physicians believe that demonstrated beneficial effects of estrogen, particularly on the cardiovascular and skeletal systems, warrant the taking of hormone therapy from menopause on, many women choose not to take estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) because of the alarming cancer rates from this therapy. They are increasingly exploring alternative approaches to ERT such as black cohosh.

Black cohosh stimulates blood circulation and has a sedating effect on the nervous system. It is also useful for the treatment of the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism. Our high-potency, 15:1 extract is effective for soothing the pain of menstrual cramps resulting from ovarian neuralgia.
