Description

Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) is a plant commonly used in herbal medicine for the relief of menopausal symptoms. A member of the buttercup family, it has a long history of use in the treatment of arthritis and muscle pain.

A key component of black cohosh is fukinolic acid, a compound that has estrogen-like properties. Proponents suggest this may be beneficial to women as they experience age-related declines in estrogen levels, a key factor in the development of menopausal symptoms.

Black cohosh is sometimes touted as a natural alternative to hormone replacement therapy. It is used as a natural remedy for a number of menopause-related symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, disturbances in mood, and vaginal dryness.

In addition, black cohosh is sometimes used to treat menstrual irregularities and alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.

 

Recommended dose: The appropriate dose of Black Cohosh depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. Always start with low dosage and see how your body and overall well-being reacts to the herb.

WARNING: * Side effects of black cohosh include headache, heaviness in the legs, indigestion, low blood pressure, nausea, perspiration, vomiting, and weight gain.

In excessive doses, black cohosh may cause seizures, visual disturbances, and slow or irregular heartbeat. Discontinue the use of black cohosh and seek medical attention if you experience symptoms such as abdominal pain, dark urine, and jaundice.

Pregnancy – Do not use while pregnant as black cohosh may stimulate uterine contractions.
