What is Black Cohosh?
Black Cohosh (Actaea racemosa, Cimicifuga racemosa) is also known as black snakeroot, bugbane, bugwort, rattleroot, rattletop, rattleweed, and macrotys. The genus name Cimicifuga is from the Latin "cimicus", which means "insect", and "fugare", which means "to drive away" (the plant is known to repel insects). "Black" refers to the dark colored rhizome, and "Cohosh" is an old Native American word meaning "dark". It is a perennial that is a member of the buttercup family, and is native to North America. Black cohosh has been used traditionally in many parts of the world. The hairy roots of this plant have been used by the Chinese for centuries. Rich in calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron, Black Cohosh root is also an abundant source of phytoestrogens.*
