Black Cohosh Root Organic
Black Cohosh Root Organic, or organic Cimicifuga racemosa, is a tall plant and an herb in the true sense—growing perennially above the ground with a stem that is not woody. However, it is not the upper herbaceous part of the plant, but the Black Cohosh Root Organic and underground rhizomes or stems that are used medicinally.
Black Cohosh Root Organic is widely used as a popular alternative hormone treatment for women. Historically, North American Indian women harvested the organic cohosh root for treating menstrual and menopausal symptoms. The root is thought to improve blood flow circulation to the pelvic area, as well as improving circulation throughout the whole body.
Black Cohosh Root Organic is attributed with analgesic, sedative and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been used to treat throat infections and rheumatism and thought to improve kidney function.
The Black Cohosh Root Organic is always relaxing as an infused tea. Both, the powdered or the cut and sifted black cohosh root is soothing as a local compress or blended loose in a bath. The powder makes a strong poultice paste.
