Black Cohosh General Information
Black Cohosh is a native North American plant found on hillsides and in woods at higher elevations. Grown from Maine and Ontario to Wisconsin, Georgia and Missouri. This herb can grow up to nine feet tall. Black Cohosh grows from a gnarled black root, hence its name, it has a smooth stem and big multiple leaves with jagged edges. In summer, white flowers develop from what are called racemes. These flowers emit a stinky odor. Black Cohosh is a tall perennial herb that Native Americans used for womenís health problems, arthritis, fatigue, and snakebite. The colonists rapidly adopted the herb for similar uses, and by the 19th century, Black Cohosh was widely used as a treatment for menstrual cramps. In the 1800ís Black Cohosh was used to treat scarlet fever, smallpox and whooping cough. In Europe it was used for womenís problems, arthritis, and high blood pressure. By the 1950s, doctors were using Black Cohosh as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy. Black Cohosh is a plant that produces effects similar to estrogen; however, there is no evidence that it works like estrogen. Black Cohosh has astringent, diuretic, sedative, alterative, anti-diarrheal, cough suppressant, and diaphoretic properties.

Black Cohosh Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Germanyís Commission E recommends using Black Cohosh for treating menopause, dysmenorrhea, and PMS. Clinical results show improvement in hot flashes, sweating, headache, vertigo, heart palpitations, tinnitus (a ringing or similar sensation in the ears), nervousness, irritability, sleep disturbance, anxiety, vaginal dryness, and depression. In a 1995 German trial, it was found that when combined with St. Johnís Wort, Black Cohosh was 78 percent effective in treating hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms. As a treatment for menopause, medical studies reported Black Cohosh to be more effective than estrogen in relieving symptoms and in normalizing the appearance of vaginal cells under microscopic evaluation. In a 1999 study at the New York College, it was found that Black Cohosh was shown to inhibit the growth of T-47D cells. The study concluded that this herb and others may be useful in preventing breast cancer. In a 2002 German study, it was reported that Black Cohosh has antiestrogenic effects. It was previously thought to have estrogenic effects. This herb is useful in treating inflammatory arthritis and rheumatism. The sedative action in Black Cohosh is helpful in treating high blood pressure, whopping cough, and asthma.

Black Cohosh Dosage Information
Black Cohosh comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. The recommended dosage is 1 or 2 tablets 2 times a day of a standardized extract, manufactured to contain 1 mg of 27-deoxyacteine per tablet. For a tincture, take 2-4ml per day. Black Cohosh can take 4 to 6 weeks to produce the full benefits. Do not confuse it with Blue Cohosh, which is potentially more dangerous because the chemicals in it are toxic to the heart.
