Native to eastern North America, Black Cohosh is not only a superb hormone-balancing agent for women, but it's also most valuable for treating rheumatic complaints and conditions related to the nervous system.

Studies show that Black Cohosh is comparable in its effectiveness to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It comes as no surprise that Commission E, the widely acknowledged German regulatory body for herbal medicines, has approved the use ofBlack Cohosh for premenstrual discomfort and dysmenorrhea, as well as menopausal complaints related to the autonomic nervous system. Black Cohosh has also been found beneficial for the treatment of depression associated with the menstrual cycle or menopause.

Some writers, moreover, refer to Black Cohosh as the “herbal chiropractor” on account of its usefulness against rheumatic pain as well.


Adults: Take 1-2 ml (30-60 drops) 3 times daily in a little water on an empty stomach.
