Black Cohosh what it is: why it works

Black Cohosh has an effect similar to the female hormone estrogen, which governs the menstrual cycle and declines after menopause. The herb was long used by Native Americans as a remedy for painful menstrual periods. It also has an anti-inflammatory, sedative effect. The medicinal part of the plant is the root, both fresh and dried. Black has been used to calm hot flashes by balancing a woman's hormone fluctuations. 

Generations of American women have relied on the gnarled root of black cohosh(Cimicifuga racemosa) to relieve various "female problems," from PMS and menstrual cramps to menopausal symptoms. An American wildflower, a member of the buttercup family, has been recommended as an alternative to standard hormone replacement therapy(HRT), which can produce unwanted side effects in many women.

Black Cohosh relieves hot flashes and other menopausal and perimenopause symptoms

As estrogen levels decline in a woman's body during middle age, she may experience hot flashes, vaginal dryness, depression, and other unpleasant symptoms. Black cohosh may offset this decline in estrogen by providing powerful plant compounds called phytoestrogens that mimic the hormone's effects. These phytoestrogens bind to hormone receptors in the uterus, breast, and other part of the body, possibly lessening hot flashes, vaginal dryness, headache, dizziness, depressive mood, and other hormone related symptoms as a result.

Some women take black cohosh as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy. Unlike HRT, which has been linked to a increased risk of breast cancer when taken, black cohosh doesn't appear to stimulate the growth of breast tumors. Some researchers even think the phytoestrogens might prevent tumor growth by keeping the body's own estrogen and exogenous estrogen's found in our environment from petrochemicals found in our foods from pesticide and herbicide use from locking onto breast cells.

Black Cohosh eases menstrual cramps

Black cohosh has antispasmodic properties that may lessen menstrual discomforts. In addition, by possibly increasing blood flow to the uterus, it may reduce the intensity of particularly painful cramps. By stabilizing hormone levels, the herb's phytoestrogens may even benefit women with premenstrual syndrome(PMS).

Instructions:

  • Take 1-2  black cohosh capsules twice daily.
  • You may reduce to 1 to 2 capsules daily once your symptoms have improved.
  • PMS Symptoms: Begin regimen a week to 10 days before your period.




Additional Guidelines for black cohosh use

  • Look for black cohosh capsules or tablets with extracts standardized to contain 2.5% triterpenes glycosides, the active components in black cohosh root and the amount that has proved effective for many women in clinical trials.
  • You can use black cohosh at any time of day, but to reduce the chance of stomach upset, take it with meals.
  • Allow up to eight weeks of black cohosh to see benefits for menopausal problems.

Cautions:

  • Black cohosh may decrease the effectiveness of birth control.
  • Until more information is available, Black Cohosh is best avoided by women with estrogen-dependent tumors such as breast cancer.
  • Should not be used by women going through cancer treatment. There is some evidence that it may interfere with anti-cancer drugs.
