Black Cohosh

Picture of black cohosh flowers

This is about black cohosh, including its hormonal properties and potential use for breast enhancement. Black cohosh has a reputation for lowering hot-flashes.

Etymology

Black cohosh belongs to the genus of Actaea, formerly Cimicifuga. It is known as baneberry, black snakeroot, bug root and bugbane

Black cohosh belongs to the Ranunculaceae or Buttercup family.

Properties

Studies have shown black cohosh to reduce hot flashes.

Black cohosh lowers LH possibly circumstantially, but it has no immediate effects on FSH or estrogen levels. Many of Cimicifuga's hormonal effects are a result of its phytohormones binding to ERα in the pituitary gland. Black cohosh raises progestogens, perhaps limited to late secretory phase.

Use

Actaea for breast enhancement

Black cohosh should be avoided during menses, proliferative, ovulation and premenstrual phases. This herb would likely cause breast shrinking and estrogen desensitization if used during proliferative. It could cause growth during premenstrual and menses, but it is likely the wrong herb to use here for continued hormone health.

Black cohosh can likely be used only once during mid-secretory, but the exact timing is not established. Actaea is not exactly like hops, so it cannot be used in all circumstances that hops is used. Hops lowers both FSH and LH, while black cohosh only lowers LH. The full hormonal implications of this for black cohosh are not clear. If black cohosh were to be used, it should be limited to under 50mg.

Actaea or herbs with similar properties, are in the programs of: menses, proliferative, luteal and/or BCP01. Herb timing and combinations' success for breast enhancement relies on menstrual phases. Descriptions and pictures of results from herb combination use can be seen in programs.

Similar herbs

Herbs with similar properites with possibly the same mechanism for action to black cohosh include, hops (Humulus) and milk thistle (Silybum).

Evening primrose is used to allevate hot-flashes, but it has a different mechanism for action and its use should be strictly limited.

Precautions

Overuse of Black cohosh can cause symptoms such as headaches. It is likely that black cohosh contributes to liver damage, as there are indications of this. Opt for hops instead.

See precautions for more details of care to be taken with herb use. Proper nutrition is a consideration for health. Also, check for the latest blog updates about herb and hormone safety.

It is very important that menses be light and not prolonged.

If you have hirsutism, PCOS, hot-flashes, other signs of hormone imbalances, see estrogen-imbalance, and hirsutism program journals at hirusitism-topic before trying herbs.

Herb concentrates can be tens of times more potent by weight than herbs in solid form. This can easily lead to hormone imbalances. For this reason, concentrate extracts are not recommended for extended or excessive internal use, especially during fertility years. Concentrates shouldn't be used to overcome plateaus. Another issue with herbal extracts, is that they may not have the full range of properties of the herb. Essential oils are not recommended for breast enhancement. If opting to use herb extracts, use no more than 1 drop at a time diluted in a food-grade carrier oil (like unrefined olive oil), or water.
