What It Is; Why It Works
Black Cohosh has an effect similar to the female hormone estrogen, which governs the menstrual cycle and declines after menopause.
Black Cohosh also is used for premenstrual discomfort and painful periods. The herb was long used by Native Americans as a remedy for painful menstrual periods. It also has an anti-inflammatory, sedative effect. The medicinal part of the plant is the root, both fresh and dried.
Black Cohosh's scientific name, "cimicifuga," comes from two Latin words meaning "bug" and "flight," a reference to the fact that it is never attacked by leaf bugs. Black Cohosh is native to Canada and the United States, but is now cultivated in Europe as well.
