Black cohosh root (Cimicifuga racemosa)

Latin Name: Cimicifuga racemosa
Common Names: Black cohosh root

Black cohosh root, or cimicfuga racemosa, is one of the quality bulk herbs you will find at Starwest Botanicals. This is actually an "herb" in the true sense: a perennial growing above the ground, the stem of which does not become woody. However, it is not the upper herbaceous part of the plant that is used, but rather the dried black cohosh root. Like many bulk dried herbs for sale at Starwest, the most common form of this particular botanical is Black Cohosh root powder, and can be referred to as a dried herb for convenience.

Historically, the root of the cimicifuga racemosa plant was used by North American Indians for addressing women's disorders, such as cramps. It is also among the natural herbs that were used to promote kidney function.

Cimicifuga racemosa contains compounds known as triterpene glycosides. These substances are thought to increase blood flow to the pelvic area. It also contains actein, a compound thought to have analgesic properties.

All organic herbs that we offer at Starwest Botanicals are useful; our bulk herbs are some of the purest you will find anywhere. Nonetheless, they should be treated with respect and not taken unadvisably; pregnant women should not take Black Cohosh Root, and it should be avoided by cancer patients as well unless recommended by a physician or professional naturopath. We are happy to answer all your questions about any product we sell here at Starwest.

Starwest Botanicals also stocks Black Cohosh Extract and Black Cohosh Capsules.

Warning: Not to be used during pregnancy.
