Black Cohosh has been used by Native Americans for more than two hundred years, after they discovered the root of the plant helped relieve menstrual cramps and symptoms of menopause. In today’s day and age, Black Cohosh is still used to relieve common menopausal symptoms; such as hot flashes/flushes, irritability, mood swings and sleep disturbances. It has also been used for helping assist menstrual irregularities, uterine spasms. Additionally, Black Cohosh may potentially help reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and neuralgia. Black Cohosh supplements are derived from the roots and underground stems (called rhizomes) of the Black Cohosh plant. The herb contains several active compounds, including triterpene sponins.
