Black Cohosh powder (scientifically known as actaea racemosa or cimicifuga racemosa) is a flowering perennial plant with fragrant white blooms on a stem, forming a spike-like structure of up to 5 feet tall. A member of the buttercup family, it grows in the woodlands of the eastern United States and Canada.
It may be effective because it functions as a phytoestrogen, a plant-based compound that mimics the action of the hormone estrogen. Black cohosh has a number of potential benefits — most of them related to women’s health or hormonal balance.
In some parts of the body, black cohosh might increase the effects of estrogen.
Traditional Chinese medicine has turned to Black Cohosh powder to:
- Reduce musculoskeletal pain and spasms.
- Support liver function.
- Support the nervous system.
- Tonify the kidney and uterus.
Western herbal tradition uses black cohosh in similar ways, specifically to reduce pain associated with:
- Arthritis and muscle problems.
- Menstruation including cramps.
- Nervous spasms and related pain.
- Symptoms of premenopausal syndrome (PMS), including headaches and body aches.
