Black Cohosh Root

Black Cohosh Root

Black Cohosh Root has a history of use for both women and men in this country that dates back to Native American tribes and European colonists.

Benefits for Women:

Over a century ago, eclectic physician Harvey Wickes Felter wrote about Black Cohosh and its effects on gynecological disorders, muscle spasms and frayed nerves.  Much has been written since then about its many benefits for women in the relief of the symptoms of menopause (hot flashes, mood swings, sleep disturbances and irritability) and menstrual cramps.  Having been extensively used for at least half a century in Europe, black cohosh root is approved in Germany for premenstrual and menstrual pain, as well as menopausal symptoms.

This combination of nervine, phytoestrogen and  anti-spasmodic properties makes black cohosh root an effective regulator of uterine contractions while in labor and overall support to childbirth.

Benefits for Men:

For men, a more recent review of research by the University of Maryland Medical Center found that studies have shown that black cohosh can reduce the inflammation seen in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.  Black cohosh extract was also found to inhibit the proliferation of human prostate cancer cells in a study published in Planta Medica (February 2007).  Men can also take advantage of the general anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of black cohosh as well.  While in high doses it may disrupt the male hormone imbalance, taken wisely, it can be of great benefit.

Our Eve’s Herbs formula, Blend E:V, has black cohosh root as its main ingredient, and additionally contains saw palmetto berries which, while mainly known for its effectiveness in cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) for men, also acts as a nerve sedative, expectorant and nutritive tonic.

The Blend E:V, with its combination of Black Cohosh and five other herbal ingredients, has been found – in over 35 years of clinical practice – to promote fertility and aid in becoming pregnant.
