First documented by Western medicine in 1801, the historical use of black cohosh dates back through centuries of Native American culture. As in traditional use, freshly harvested organic American black cohosh root is the basis of this formula. The pure root provides an effective source of triterpene glycosides that are balanced by many other naturally occurring compounds. The use of cultivated organic black cohosh ensures a sustainable supply of this top selling women's herb.

- Black cohosh is one of my favorite herbs. I take it very often, and I am not, I repeat, NOT a peri/menopausal woman. It would be easy to go on a rant here about how the industry pigeonholes herbs and make complex living beings with which we coevolved to interact with in a staggering variety of ways into 'the herb for [insert health condition here],' but then we'd be here all day. I'll spare you the lecture here, dear reader, but suffice to say, herbs don't work like that, they don't just do one single thing.
- I use black cohosh mainly for muscle and neurological pain, for which it is phenomenal. It's great for the pain and soreness from overexertion but is also helpful, in combination with herbs like prickly ash, milky oat tops, and Saint John's wort, for neuralgias. On the muscle pain front, it's even more valuable when used prophylactically, i.e. take a dose of black cohosh before you exercise and you may notice a significant decrease in the soreness after, especially if you get muscle spasms associated with that soreness. It's a traditional anti-rheumatic herb and is useful for supporting you through any type of arthritic pain, rheumatoid or osteo-, especially effective if combined with a circulatory stimulant such as prickly ash or ginger to carry it where it needs to go. I also use black cohosh extensively as a nervine tonic for reducing anxiety and lifting the mood, and I find it to be one of the best herbs for agitated depression. Along these lines, one of its traditional indications was for �Women compelled to throw themselves from a moving carriage.' This potent 1:2 liquid extract has the added benefit of its bitter taste, which increases secretions throughout the GI tract to aid those with sluggish digestion. Yes it tastes like dirt, but it tastes like the rich, black, 3 foot deep topsoil of Appalachian Mountains. Mmmm yum!
- My mom on the other hand, takes black cohosh for hot flashes, and it works very well. When she remembers to take it, a proper dose will generally keep her flash free for at least 3-4 hours. Beyond that it is a general tonic for the female reproductive tract, strengthening the tissues of the uterus, useful for cycle irregularities, PMS (especially if you tend towards agitation and depression, anger is more of a blue vervain deal), and promoting fertility.
