Have you ever felt that some of your pre- or post-menopausal symptoms were beyond tolerance, and you needed to get some temporary relief to continue? Herbal supplement black cohosh tablets from Organic Greek might provide you with some relief. The roots or underground stem of the black cohosh plant, which is native to North America, is used as an herbal supplement to treat these conditions.
Native Americans have boiled the roots and flowers from black cohosh, which is a member of the buttercup family, from many, many years and used the decoction to treat several conditions related to women’s health. They also used it to treat snake bite, pain, fever, cough, pneumonia, and many other conditions.
Black cohosh is a tall flowering perennial woodland herb. The exact derivatives that help treat women’s problems have not been isolated. Experts believe that its triterpene glycosides may account for its activity in the body.
Studies carried out on the effectiveness of black cohosh have produced mixed results. The only proven benefits according to researchers has been that it has reduced the intensity as well as the number of hot flashes and night sweats that affect menopausal women. It can therefore reduce some of the anxiety and depression that may be present in menopausal women as a result of hot flashes. It can also improve sleep as it decreases the intensity and duration of hot flashes or flushes and nighttime sweat.
Black cohosh has also reportedly reduced menstruation symptoms, if taken before the start of a period. There have also been suggestions that it may function as a phyto estrogen similar to natural estrogen produced by the body. Estrogen levels fall during menopause and post menopause.
A few studies have shown that it may increase fertility in women but as with most herbal supplements the amount of research is insufficient to drawn firm conclusions.
Black cohosh has been studied for its beneficial effects on other conditions that affect women’s health but there are insufficient studies. It may help in
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Regulation of menstrual cycle.
Preliminary studies show that it may also help with arthritis as it may reduce inflammation and laboratory-based studies show that it may help decrease bone loss which is seen in osteoporosis.
As with natural and synthetic chemicals, there could be interactions when black cohosh is used with other medicines. In a few rare cases, it has caused severe liver damage. As with any medicine or herbal supplement, it is not recommended for children and pregnant women. It may cause rashes and gastrointestinal problems in a few persons.
Organic Greek manufactures Black Cohosh in an FDA approved facility. Its tablets are natural, vegan, and non-GMO.
Note: It is always advisable to talk to your health care provider before taking any herbal supplement as the FDA does not approve of any herbal supplement per se but inspects facilities where they are manufactured.
