Reduces or eliminates symptoms associated with menopause and during menstruation such as:
- hot flushes
- dry vagina
- menstrual cramps
Black Cohosh is recognized as one of the most popular herbal remedies for menopausal symptoms. Natural alternatives such as black cohosh are increasingly being selected as substitutes, without side effects, for hormone replacement therapy.
Black Cohosh contains different glycosides, such as:
- actaein, cimicifungin and racemosin;
- estrogenic substances;
- oleic and palmitic acid;
- triterpenes and;
- vitamins A and B5.
It is considered to have good antispasmodic property and has a long history of use in the therapy of female disorders. Most women will spend the last third of their life in post-menopause.
During this time, low chronic steroid estrogen levels can lead to a series of short and long term medical sequelae, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, heart disease and osteoporosis. While some doctors believe that demonstrating beneficial effects of estrogen, in particular, on cardiovascular and skeletal systems, justify hormonal therapy in menopause, many women choose not to use estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) because of the alarming rates of cancer caused by this therapy.
Black Cohosh stimulates blood circulation and has a sedative effect on the nervous system. It is also useful for the therapy of the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism. New Roots Herbal extract with a 15:1 concentration is also effective for calming menstrual cramps resulting from ovarian neuralgia.
Recommended administration (only for adults): 1-3 capsules a day or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
