What is Black Cohosh?
An Herb for Feminine Wellness
Black cohosh (Actaea racemosa) can be found growing in the woodlands of North
America, and has long been used to promote menopausal health for women, dating
back to traditional Native American practices.
Benefits of Black Cohosh
Reduces Hot Flashes
A great number of studies have been done on the effect black cohosh has on menopause
symptoms, such as hot flashes. While some research is inconclusive, this is generally
due to the fact that many of them have been based on a scale, rather than placebo-
based observation. In addition, the specific compounds and dosages of the supplement
have been inconsistent in many studies.
One factor that worsens other symptoms of menopause is the sleep disturbance that
often accompanies this transition. Sleep is vital to balancing hormones naturally, as
lack of sleep disturbs hormone production and management, even in normal periods of life.
Promising for Treatment of Diabetes
A breakthrough study recently showed positive impact of an extract of this plant,
Ze 450, on Type II Diabetes. While this was a pilot study, the results indicated that
Ze 450 may help reduce body weight and improve the bprocessing of insulin within
the body of a diabetic patient.
Helps Manage PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)
Maybe related to its effects in potentially treating diabetes, black cohosh has also
been studied regarding PCOS and the benefits it may give to women with the disorder.
Initial results suggest black cohosh had a positive impact on the disorder and could match
the treatment of the pharmaceutical agent it was tested against
Provides a Safe Alternative to HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)
HRT is a dangerous therapy to choose for menopause relief. Women on estrogen
replacement drugs have been proven to be 24 percent more likely to develop breast
cancer than women on no hormone therapy medications. I understand that menopause
is dreaded by most women, as the side effects often become debilitating. However,
I don’t see the bright side of treating this drop in estrogen with drugs that are likely
to cause even more health problems.
Reduces Bone Loss in Osteoporosis
Most plants, including black cohosh, contain many organic compounds with biological
activity. In the tissues and organs of Actaea racemosa, there is already evidence of
phytoestrogens (plant-derived estrogens). In addition, some of the biological molecules
within the plant have been proven to reduce bone loss caused by osteoporosis. One
particular molecular compound (deemed ACCX) has presented an encouraging lead in
a new class of treatment for osteoporosis
Treats Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are benign growths of the uterus, often appearing during years where
a woman’s fertility is at its peak. In countries outside of the United States, these are often
treated with a synthetic steroid drug, Tibolone.
May Reduce Anxiety
One historic use of this perennial herb was treatment of anxiety and depression. While
it has long been considered nothing more than a false remedy, recent research has
proposed that it may have significant impact on anxiety, just as studies indicate how
effective essential oils for anxiety can be. This is encouraging, considering that anxiety
is another intimidating symptom of menopause.
