Black cohosh has a history of use for women’s health issues dating back to Native Americans. Today it finds widespread usage for gynecological issues from menstruation to menopause. It is most commonly used for menopausal symptoms due to its estrogenic effect on the body.
Menopausal symptoms vary from woman to woman, but the most common are hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches, loss of libido, weight gain, and breast tenderness. Numerous studies over the past 40 years have helped establish the efficacy of black cohosh as a treatment for menopausal symptoms.
A well-known 1982 study of over 600 women found that 80 percent experienced some relief from symptoms such as hot flashes, perspiration, irritability, heart palpitations, and depression after taking 80 mg of black cohosh daily for six to eight weeks.
Black cohosh has also demonstrated usefulness in supporting normal menstruation and relieving PMS. According to U.S. News and World Report, 75 percent of women suffer each month from premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), more commonly referred to as premenstrual disorder or PMS. Three to nine percent of women report that their symptoms are severe enough to inhibit daily activities. Vitabase’s Black Cohosh Extract Plus includes two additional ingredients known for their effective support of women’s health: dong quai and chasteberry. These elements work synergistically with black cohosh for maximum effectiveness. Dong quai is commonly recommended by herbalists to support a normal menstrual cycle.
