Black Cohosh (Actaea racemosa synonym: Cimicifuga racemosa) is recognized as one of the most popular herbs for treating menopausal symptoms. Natural alternatives, such as Black Cohosh, are increasingly being selected as substitutes without side effects for hormone replacement therapy. Black Cohosh contains various glycosides, such as: actaein, cimicifungin and racemosin, estrogenic substances; oleic and palmitic acid, phosphorus, tannins, triterpenes; and vitamins A and B5. It is considered to have a good antispasmodic property and has a long historical use in treating female disorders.
Most women will spend the last third of their lives at menopause. During this time, chronic low levels of steroid estrogens can lead to a number of short- and long-term medical sequelae, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, heart disease and osteoporosis. While some doctors believe that demonstrating the beneficial effects of estrogen, especially on the cardiovascular and bone systems, justifies the administration of hormone therapy in menopause, many women choose not to take hormone replacement therapy (ERT) because of the alarming rates of cancer caused of this therapy. They are increasingly exploring alternative approaches to ERT, such as Black Cohosh.
Black Cohosh stimulates blood circulation and has a sedative effect on the nervous system. It is also useful for treating the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism. The extract from Natural Factors with a concentration of 15:1, is also effective for relieving menstrual cramps resulting from ovarian neuralgia.
