    Black Cohosh

    Black Cohosh is prepared from the dried rhizome (root) of the perennial flowering plant Cimicifuga racmosa. Black cohosh's active constituents include triterpene glycosides (acetin and 27-deoxyactein) and isoflavones (formononetin).

    Black Cohosh & Menopause : Black Cohosh herbal remedy is the most popular herbal supplement in Europe for women's health during the peri-menopausal and menopausal phase of life.

    Studies suggest that Black Cohosh has repeatedly demonstrated efficacy for hot flushes/flashes. This action is attributed to the isoflavone formononetin, and triterpene, a component which binds to the oestrogen receptor and lowers luteinizing hormone (LH) levels. It is theorised that it is higher levels of luteinizing hormone
    in menopause which causes hot flashes/flushes.

    Black Cohosh has also improved other symptoms of menopause included night sweats, insomnia, nervousness, and irritability.

    Black cohosh and Menstrual Pain: Black cohosh is used to treat dysmenorrhea and is recommended for this by the German Commission E,8. Black Cohosh may also have some uses for menstrual irregularities and premenstrual syndrome. (PMS).

    Black Cohosh & Rheumatoid Pain: Black cohosh has a history of use for pain and the Black Cohosh root has also shown promise in the management of rheumatoid arthritis and headache. It is believed that some of the active components in black cohosh can have an anti-inflammatory effect.

    Note: Consumers should ensure that the Black Cohosh supplement only contains true Black cohosh – the Actaea racemosa species, otherwise known as Cimicifuga racemosa – and that it is not adulterated with other species such as A. cimicifuga (aka Cimicifuga foetida), Actaea dahurica (C. dahurica) or A. heracleifolia (C. heracleifolia).

    Caution: Black cohosh may rarely cause liver problems. If you become unwell (yellowing eyes/skin, nausea, vomiting, dark urine, abdominal pain, unusual tiredness) stop taking immediately and seek medical advice. Not suitable for patients with a previous history of liver disease
