What is Cohosh?
An herbaceous perennial found in the woodlands of eastern North America, cohosh (Actaea racemosa) is a traditional herb also known as black cohosh, black snakeroot, and fairy candle. It may only reach a height of 24 inches, but it sports broad leaves that can be up to 3 feet long, as well as white clusters of petal-less flowers called stamens, and small fruits. While the plant may seem unassuming aboveground, the roots and rhizomes below have held significant importance in traditional herbal wellness practices for centuries.
The roots and rhizomes of black cohosh have long been a staple in folk Native American wellness practices. They used it for a number of wellness benefits, so much so that the Europeans adopted the use of the herb upon their arrival to the New World. Black cohosh made a significant impact in this regard, and was included in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia in 1830 under the name “black snakeroot.”
Black cohosh supplements have earned a treasured role in herbal wellness, especially with regards to promoting menopausal health in women.** These supplements help to support healthy transition into menopause, and for some women may help to alleviate common symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mild mood changes, and occasional sleeplessness.**
