Black cohosh is most valuable for balancing the female reproductive system. It was originally used by the women of the early Algonquin First Nations for ‘women’s’ problems and childbirth. Modern-day herbalists prescribe it for menstrual pain, nervous tension, PMS and menopausal symptoms. Black cohosh wins big marks in the pain relief department: aside from being helpful with menstrual pain, it can also relieve muscle and joint pain associated with conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibrositis, as well as sciatica pain. Find relief from those monthly irritations, aches and pains with black cohosh.
Each ml contains 200 mg of organically grown black cohosh rhizomes (Actaea racemosa). It is a 1:5 rhizome extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water, with organically grown cinnamon bark as a natural flavour enhancer.
Black cohosh is used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve premenstrual and menopausal symptoms.
For best results, take black cohosh on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 3 ml, 2 times per day. To dispense, fill the dropper half way, which gives you 1 ml. Do this 2 more times to get 3 ml.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, hormone-balancing and pain-relieving drink!
Caution: Do not use black cohosh if you are pregnant. Please talk to your healthcare practitioner before using black cohosh if you are breastfeeding, or if you have a liver disorder or any symptoms of liver trouble, such as abdominal pain, dark urine or jaundice. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
