Black Cohosh Root


Common names include: Bugbane, Black Snake Root, Sheng Ma

Black cohosh is often promoted as a dietary supplement for hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms. It’s also been promoted for other conditions, including menstrual cramps and premenstrual syndrome, and to induce labor. Because the root is bitter it is often blended with more pleasant tasting herbs.

Safety: Due to the estrogen-like effect of Black Cohosh, it should be avoided by women who are pregnant or lactating. Likewise, women who are already on some form of estrogen therapy should consult a physician before using Black Cohosh. Large doses may cause abdominal pain, nausea, headache, dizziness and miscarriage.

Take charge of your health—talk with your health care providers about any complementary health approaches you use. Together, you can make shared, well-informed decisions.
