Black Cohosh, also known as (Actaea racemosa) is a perennial plant native to North America. It’s also found growing wild in Europe, having been self-seeded from cultivated plants. The word “Cohosh” is a Native American word which means “rough” referring to the plant’s gnarled root structure. Throughout history it has also been known as snakeroot, black bugbane, and rheumatism weed. It was given the name “bugbane” because the flowers have such a strong odor, and have been used to effectively repel insects.
Black Cohosh grows from four to eight feet in height. It has a stem with tiny white flowers that have numerous stamens. But it’s the roots and rhizomes (underground stems) that are important to make dietary supplements.
Black Cohosh has a long history of use by Native Americans and European settlers. The Native Americans used it to treat menstrual irregularities, while the European settlers used Black Cohosh as a tonic to support women’s reproductive health.*
In the 1990s Black Cohosh became popular as a growing number of women sought more natural alternatives for menstrual issues and hot flashes associated with menopause.*
