Menopause
A stark drop in estrogen levels is responsible for bringing on the symptoms of menopause. Some researchers believe that Black Cohosh might exert its effects on menopausal symptoms through a brain-related action, such as modulation of serotonergic pathways, or through its potential ability to act as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, or selective estrogen receptor modulator.
It has been extensively studied, with many results showing that Black Cohosh does indeed alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety and mood swings. In a German study involving 629 women, Black Cohosh improved physical and psychological menopausal symptoms in more than 80% of the participants within four weeks. In another study, 80 menopausal women were treated for 12 weeks with Black Cohosh extract, conjugated estrogens or a placebo. Black Cohosh improved anxiety, menopause and vaginal symptoms. In addition, the number of hot flashes dropped from 5 to less than 1 average daily occurrence in the Black Cohosh group compared to those taking estrogen in whom hot flashes dropped from 5 to 3.5 daily occurrences.
Whilst the jury is still out as to whether Black Cohosh has an estrogenic effect, certain complex chemicals, especially triterpenes and flavonoids, are believed to be the active constituents. Some of these apparently act on the pituitary gland, which is located at the base of the brain, to suppress the secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH). High levels of LH in the blood are often associated with menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, headaches, heart palpitations and drying and thinning of the vagina.
Black Cohosh can also have an impact on the hormonal balance of the body, making it useful to combat mood swings and stress brought about by PMS or the menopause.
Menstrual Issues
This adaptable herb can be useful in managing erratic periods and/or easing cramps and uterine tension. It can also stimulate menstrual bleeding and improve uterine tone
Anti-Inflammatory
The salicylic acid in Black Cohosh is responsible for its anti-inflammatory action. Salicylic acid is the base for the active ingredient in aspirin, making this herb an ideal natural alternative to take when you would normally reach for the painkillers. The anti-inflammatory nature of Black Cohosh makes it useful for arthritis, sore throats and even high blood pressure. It also works as a vasodilator, reducing stress on the cardiovascular system, thus contributing to the health of the heart.
Anti-Spasmodic
The traditional use of Black Cohosh for period pains can be attributed to its ability to act as a powerful anti-spasmodic (relieving muscle cramps and aiding nerve function). This anti-spasmodic activity in conjunction with its natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties makes Black Cohosh a great herb for aches and pains related to muscle strain/injury or chronic nervous tension.
