 Black cohosh (Actaea racemosa L.), a member of the buttercup family, and grows in North America. Native Americans traditionally used black cohosh for a variety of ailments and introduced it to European colonists.

A one 3-month study in 244 postmenopausal women found that supplementing daily with 40 mg of black cohosh may decrease the size of uterine fibroids by up to 30%.

In test-tube studies, black cohosh extract exhibited anti-estrogen activity and helped slow the spread of breast cancer cells 

-Alleviating menopausal symptoms is the reason most people use black cohosh, and it’s one of the uses that has the most compelling evidence to support it.

In one study, in 80 menopausal women who were experiencing hot flashes, those who supplemented with 20 mg of black cohosh daily for 8 weeks reported significantly fewer and less severe hot flashes than before they started the supplement.

WARNING: Overdose of black cohosh may cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, nervous system and visual disturbances, reduced pulse rate, and increased perspiration.

Avoid use in pregnancy and lactation. Black cohosh has been used to improve pregnancy rates following in vitro fertilization and in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Premature birth or Miscarriage can occur with large doses. 

 Cases of liver damage—some very serious—have been reported in people taking commercial black cohosh products. These problems are rare, and it is uncertain whether black cohosh was responsible for them. Nevertheless, people with liver disorders should consult a healthcare provider before taking black cohosh products
