Black Cohosh

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

Etymology

Black cohosh belongs to the genus of Actaea, formerly Cimicifuga. It belongs to the Ranunculaceae or Buttercupfamily.

Properties

Studies have shown black cohosh to reduce hot flashes.

Black cohosh lowers LH, but it has no immediate effects on FSH or estrogen levels. Cimicifuga raises progestogens during luteal phase by binding to ERα in the pituitary gland.

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.

Precautions

Overuse of Black cohosh can cause symptoms such as headaches. It is uncertain if use of black cohosh contributes to liver damage. Opt for hops instead.

If you have hirsutism, PCOS, hot-flashes, other signs of hormone imbalances, see estrogen-deficiency and treating hirsutism program before trying herbs. See precautions for more details of care to be taken with herb use. Also, check for the latest blog updates about herb and hormone safety.

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. 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.
