Black cohosh root (Cimicifuga racemosa)

Latin Name: Cimicifuga racemosa

Common Names: Black cohosh root

Black cohosh root, or cimicfuga racemosa, is actually an "herb" in the true sense: a perennial growing above the ground, the stem of which does not become woody. However, it is not the upper herbaceous part of the plant that is used, but rather the dried black cohosh root.

Historically, the root of the cimicifuga racemosa plant was used by North American Indians for addressing women's disorders, such as cramps. It is also among the natural herbs that were used to promote kidney function.

Cimicifuga racemosa contains compounds known as triterpene glycosides. These substances are thought to increase blood flow to the pelvic area. It also contains actein, a compound thought to have analgesic properties.

Treat Black Cohosh root with respect; pregnant women should not take Black Cohosh Root, and it should be avoided by cancer patients as well - unless recommended by a knowledgeable health-care provider.

Warning: Not to be used during pregnancy.
