Black cohosh is an antispasmodic, expectorant, stimulant, astringent and diaphoretic.
Black cohosh helps to break up mucus in the lungs and aids in elimination from the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system.
Black cohosh is used for aches and pains, helping to relieve inflammatory pain and rheumatism.
It also helps relieve muscle tension and anxiety as it acts as a relaxant.
Black cohosh also supports hormone function during menopause because it has an estrogenic effect that addresses conditions that are present because of estrogen deficiency such as hot flashes.
Black cohosh also enhances one’s sense of well-being as it binds to and activates serotonin receptors. Serotonin produces a general feeling of happiness and well-being.
