Black Cohosh is a flowering plant, native to North Eastern America. Historically, it was the Native Americans who first discovered Black Cohosh’s medicinal properties.

However, in today’s society, Black Cohosh is most commonly associated with the menopause. To be precise, scientific studies have been performed using Black Cohosh where it has reduced: hot flushes, night sweats and sleep difficulties.

Black Cohosh has also had studies performed where it has alleviated the mental symptoms of menopausal induced anxiety, with the varied ill effects that it can bring. These studies were involving both perimenopausal and postmenopausal women.

Black Cohosh’s scientific name is Actaea Racemosa and it is a member of the Ranunculaceae plant family. As a herbal remedy, not all of the plant is actually used. In fact, only the rhizomes, which is part of the root structure and is basically an underground plant stem, and the remainder of the root system are actually found to hold the properties that we seek.

All of these various compounds, along with the others present within, all function in harmony to help alleviate the physical and mental symptoms of menopause.
