Black Cohosh has been used for years with great success and has been found to be useful in the treatment of stress related symptoms experienced during menopause and premenstrual (PMS ) This herb does not appear to stimulate the growth of breast tumors unlike conventional hormone replacement therapy, ( HRT ) There is also a school of thought among many researchers that the phytoestrogens in black cohosh may actually prevent tumor growth by keeping the bodys own estrogen from stimulating breast cells.
Some women experience a mild case of stomach upset for a week or so after starting the herb but this can be alleviated by always taking with food.
As with all herbal therapy these capsules must be taken consistently and will not work overnight. Be patient and breathe in...breathe out....
*** this herb should be avoided in combination with birth control pills or any estrogen sensitive cancer. ***
