Black Cohosh: ingredient of WonderOver

The black cohosh (Actaea racemosa L.) racemosa is one of the medicinal plants used in menopause. It is indicated for the treatment of hot flashes, mood disorders and drying of the vaginal mucosa.
Its scope of application includes some of the most relevant and valid gynecological conditions such as menopausal symptoms (hot flushes disorders of mood and tone), menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea) and hormonal insufficiencies as a result of removal of the uterus and ovaries.
These results are data from the content in phytoestrogens, which are natural substances with estrogen-like activity even if more moderate. In addition to the estrogenic action, the black cohosh is equipped with an action of inhibition of LH (luteinizing hormone). The LH promotes ovulation and maintains the secretion of estradiol and progesterone in women and acts on the synthesis of testosterone in men.

The two molecules are considered already in use for some time, with different purposes: the first as antitumor, the second as anti osteoporotic.
