Menstrual and Menopausal Symptom Relief
Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) has long been used in traditional medicine for relief of menstrual cramps and hot flashes. Western medical studies have confirmed Black cohosh’s estrogenic effects.
Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) has known estrogenic effects coupled with the ability to stabilize blood vessels. This “stabilization” is believed to be partly responsible for menopausal hot flash relief.
Chasteberry (Vitex angus-castus) helps normalize sex hormone levels by acting on the pituitary gland and hypothalamus.
Black Cohosh Plus+ is a special formula of these three herbs designed especially for women experiencing the symptoms of menopause or menstrual cramping.
Each (1) Capsule contains:
- Black Cohosh extract (Cimicifuga racemosa) 40 mg, standardized to 2.5% [1 mg] triterpene glycosides,
- Chasteberry fruit powder (Vitex agnus-castus) 100 mg,
- Dong Quai root (angelica sinensis) 100 mg.
Suggested dose 1-2 Capsules, 2 times per day with meals. Begin with 2 caps per day. If significant improvement in symptoms is not seen in 3 weeks, increase dose to 4 caps per day. This formula is safe to take indefinitely for menopausal symptoms.
