This is a tall, perennial plant of the buttercup family. Generations of women all around the world have relied on the root of black cohosh to relieve various symptoms associated with PMS, menstruation, perimenopause, and menopause. It’s one of the world’s most famous herbs for women.
IT’S FOR MENOPAUSE
As estrogen levels decline in a woman’s body during middle age, she may experience many symptoms, including sleep disturbances, brain fog, low energy, hot flashes, night sweats, irregular periods, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, headache, dizziness and depressive mood. Black cohosh provides powerful plant compounds called phytoestrogens that mimic the effects of estrogen, which governs the menstrual cycle and declines after menopause. By binding to hormone receptors in the uterus, breast, and other parts of the body, symptoms of menopause may be drastically reduced.
A natural alternative to Synthetic Hormone Treatment, black cohosh mimics the effects of estrogen, but it’s not estrogen. For those who fear hormone replacement therapy, this should offer peace of mind.
IT’S ALSO FOR MENSTRUATION
Black cohosh was long used by Native Americans as a remedy for painful menstruation. It has amazing anti muscle spasm properties that can lessen cramps during menstruation. In fact, by possibly increasing blood flow to the uterus, it can lessen the intensity of cramps, irritability and bloating while offering relief of minor depression and mood swings.
Black cohosh has a reputation of being a potent aphrodisiac for women because it contains natural chemical compounds which mimic the effects of estrogen, the primary woman sex hormone. Two types of estrogen receptors in the herb, as well as a compound known as fukinolic acid have shown to be responsible for such effects.
Naturally, a fall in the level of estrogen may lead to low libido, vaginal dryness and inability to attain orgasm. Black cohosh may help treat such problems.
