What is Black Cohosh?

Black Cohosh is a herbal extract that assists normal hormone balance. Cimi-Max® is the trademarked form of Cimicifuga Racemosa (Black Cohosh) used in NuWoman 30 PLUS and NuWoman BALANCE, and is one of the most advanced forms of Cimicifuga on the market today. It is manufactured by the world’s leading supplier of standardised herbal preparations. Unlike other forms of Cimicifuga, Cimi-Max® is standardised to two active constituent benchmarks that ensures optimum potency, consistency and effectiveness.

A delicate balance exists between oestrogen and progesterone in the female body. When this balance is upset a whole range of issues may occur. Stress, mood swings, irritability, skin eruptions, fluid retention, breast tenderness, tearfulness, irregular menstrual cycles, headaches, fatigue, anger, decreased sex drive and nervous tension may be present.

The extract is made from the roots of the Black Cohosh which was first discovered by Native American Indians. The roots became a popular treatment for women’s health issues in Europe in the mid-1950s.

Black Cohosh’s Method of Action

Cimicifuga racemosa has been used as the primary hormonal controlling agent in NuWoman due to its proven effect upon the hormonal system. Through regulating the hypothalamus pituitary axis, a profound and lasting effect can be achieved in hormonal regulation.

Cimicifuga is one of the most scientifically proven herbal medicines in the world today. It has been proven to be effective in a range of gynecological complaints.
