Many women turn to traditional herbal products for relief and black cohosh is one of the most valued and frequently used. Black cohosh is a member of the buttercup family and the best-known American species are the bugbane (Cimicifuga racemosa). Cimicifuga derives from the Latin, meaning “to drive away”, as certain species are used to drive away bugs and other insects. Black cohosh has its origins among the North American Indians, where it has long been valued for a range of women’s health conditions, including menstrual pain and menopausal hot flushes, and for easing childbirth.

In 19th century America, black cohosh was used for fevers, rheumatism and sore throat, as well as for gynaecological disorders. Black cohosh supplements are derived from the rhizome (underground plant stem) and the root of the plant and the active constituents include phytosterin, isoferulic acid and fukinolic acid, as well as long-chain fatty acids and triterpen glycosides.

 Although the exact mechanism of action is unknown, black cohosh is thought to exert oestrogen-like effects. In modern usage, it has gained popularity for relief of menopausal symptoms, such as night sweats and hot flushes, which can be two of the most distressing of symptoms, sometimes occurring many times daily. Preliminary research suggests that it might also have an effect on serotonin receptors, which may explain its benefits for the mood changes experienced during menopause, such as irritability and restlessness.
