Black Cohosh extract capsules may be a beneficial component of the nutritional support program of women who wish to moderate fluctuating hormone levels during menopause.
Black Cohosh, an herb with a long history of use in Native American cultures for gynecological disorders, is currently used throughout Europe for its phytoestrogenic and hormone moderating properties. Estrogen levels decline during menopause. This initiates numerous physiological changes commonly associated with menopause, including hot flashes, insomnia, and depression. Traditional therapies, such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT), offer relief from symptoms of menopause; yet, as HRT is associated with its own side effects and certain increased health risks, many women are investigating alternative means of achieving hormonal balance during menopause.Ingredients:
