Black Cohosh – A History of Womens Health Support Black cohosh has a history of use for women’s health issues dating back to Native Americans. Today it finds widespread usage for gynecological issues from menstruation to menopause. It is most commonly used for menopausal symptoms due to its estrogen effect on the body. Menopausal symptoms vary from woman to woman but the most common symptoms are hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches, loss of libido, weight gain, and breast tenderness. Numerous studies over the past 40 years have helped establish the efficacy of black cohosh as a treatment for menopausal symptoms. A well-known 1982 study of over 600 women found 80% experienced some relief from such symptoms as hot flashes, perspiration, irritability, heart palpitations and depression after taking 80 mg of black cohosh daily over six to eight weeks time period. Black cohosh has also demonstrated usefulness supporting normal menstruation and relieving PMS. According to U.S. News and World Report, 75% of women suffer each month from premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). More commonly referred to as premenstrual disorder or PMS, three to nine percent of women report their symptoms are severe enough to inhibit daily activities.
