DESCRIPTION 

Black cohosh (Actea or Cimicifuga racemosa) is a plant used in herbal medicine to alleviate menopausal disorders. These can be neurovegetative (hot flashes, sleep disturbances, sweating, etc.) or psychic (irritability, nervousness, mood disorders, anxiety…). Black cohosh is also a plant whose action on hot flashes and sleep disorders associated with menopause is ** recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization). The parts of the plant used are the roots and the rhizomes (underground stems). These contain triterpene glycosides, engines of the phenolic acids as well as alkaloids. Studies on black cohosh have demonstrated the role of these active ingredients in thea regulation of the nervous and hormonal system. They would act by balancing the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters, essential to emotional balance and control of hot flashes.

 

ANECDOTE

The name "Cimicifuga" derives its Latin origins from "cimex" meaning bug and "fugo" meaning to flee. In the past, this plant was actually used to fight against bedbugs. This is why black cohosh is sometimes called Bedbug Grass.

 

SIDE EFFECTS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS

Black cohosh is a well tolerated plant which does not present a risk of major side effects. However, in rare cases (intolerance or overdose), occasional side effects may occur such as gastrointestinal disturbances, feeling of heaviness in the legs, headache or dizziness. Consumption of black cohosh is not recommended for people with liver problems or a history of hormone-dependent cancers. In case of medical treatment, it is recommended to seek the advice of a doctor or pharmacist to avoid any risk of drug interaction.
