what else you should know

blue cohosh root

Blue cohosh is a member of the barberry family and is indigenous to North America. The root of the plant was widely used by Native Americans for various conditions of significance to women, which gave rise to alternative common names like squaw root and papoose root.

The main active constituent in blue cohosh root is caulosaponin, a glycoside that occurs in this plant exclusively. Because this compound isn’t water soluble, black cohosh root is most commonly prepared as an alcohol-based tincture. However, aside from exerting potential estrogen-like effects, caulosaponin increases blood flow by causing blood vessels to constrict. Consult your physician before using this herb if you have a history of stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes or glaucoma.
