What is Cimicifuga?
Cimicifuga, known as both Black Cohosh and Actaea Racemosa, is a perennial plant native to North America that has been shown to have a positive effect on restoring hormonal balance. Cimicifuga extract is therefore commonly used for menopause relief. Because Cimicifuga does not contain any hormones it has fewer side effects than synthetic hormone medicines. This herbal remedy helps relieve menopausal symptoms naturally. Cimicifuga by AOV is available without a prescription.
What is Cimicifuga used for?
Cimicifuga extract is used to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings. These symptoms are caused by a decrease in hormone production. Cimicifuga restores hormonal balance and so alleviates the symptoms associated with menopause. In addition, Cimicifuga promotes bone health and improves the condition of blood vessels. AOV’s Cimicifuga is for use in women only.
