by Laura Ramirez on July 14, 2011

Black cohosh for menopause is an effective way of managing the symptoms that come with the change of life. This herb is very effective in reducing hot flashes because it helps to regulate body temperature. In addition to supporting the female hormonal system, this supplement also calms the nervous system. Since stress exacerbates menopause symptoms and accelerates the aging process, this is an important benefit.

Since 2000, two million women yearly have entered menopause. By 2015, 50% of women in the U.S. will be menopausal. Menopausal symptoms affect 80% of women with different presentations and intensity. Women experience these symptoms for months to years, while for some, symptoms can be life long.ᅠ

Black cohosh for menopause is very effective at reducing hot flashes.

I have found Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) to be a very effective herb for managing hot flashes. In the past 2 decades, there has been more research done on the treatment of hot flashes with Black Cohosh than on any other herb. Consensus from research shows that Black Cohosh does help with the menopausal symptoms of hot flashes, sleep disturbance, muscle aches. The mechanism of action for Black Cohosh remains unclear, but research has shown, it doesn’t have phytoestrogenic effects on the pituitary, uterus or breast tissue.…/botanical-medicine-for-menopaus…

When black cohosh is combined with pasque flower, it also improves quality of sleep. Obviously, the benefit associated with restful sleep are many. A woman who is calmer and more rested is less likely to have other symptoms or suffer from other physical and mental problems that are associated with a lack of sleep.

If you suffer with hot flashes, black cohosh for menopause is an effective solution that is free of side effects. Best of all, you can try it without a prescription.
