Black Cohosh Side Effects
It is very unlikely that many of you might know the black cohosh side effects. Owing to the large medical applications of black cohosh, it is obvious that many of you might have heard of the benefits of the herb. It is widely used for the treatment of disorders in the menstrual cycle for women and also in areas such as kidney disorders and rheumatism. Black cohosh is an important ingredient in several domestic treatment methods we follow in day to day life at our homes itself like in the treatment of headache, common cold and cough, etc. However everything has a positive and negative side and the black cohosh herb does not in any way make an exception as far as many critics of the plant are concerned.
The most amazing part of the studies surrounding the possible side effects of the herb is that the reported side effects were in fact contradicting several benefits found earlier of the same plant. Using a small amount each day say at most 900 mg each day will not be too risky as studies and tests have proved this quantity to be on the safer side. Besides deeper research like In Vitro tests also showed no indication of possible mutagenic properties believed to be associated with Black Cohosh extracts. As we know certain estrogens like estradiol are linked to increased chances of occurrence of cervical or breast cancer. However certain other estrogens like estriol are linked to relatively low levels of cancer. Proprietary black cohosh extracts like remifemin exhibit properties akin to estriol and hence not labeled dangerous by any authority.
Some reported black cohosh side effects which occurred as a result of combining the extract with other substances such as hormone replacement therapy products. However this research too reveals totally contradicting results in different parts of the world. A vast majority of Women tolerated the tests but some failed to do so. So it is always wise to check the instructions of the manufacturer to avoid harmful black cohosh side effects.
Though no solid evidence has been obtained several doctors advise pregnant women not to take black cohosh or its extracts to avoid possible side effects. But on the contrary, several gynecologists recommend high dosages of black and blue cohosh during pregnancy period to facilitate smooth delivery and labor. Nursing babies after taking in high dosages of black cohosh and its extracts are both prescribed and discouraged by Doctors themselves.
Careful research and studies have shown that daily dosage not exceeding 890mg will not cause any black cohosh side effects. The only small issue recorded is small gastro problems but that is actually nothing to worry about. In some countries, daily dosage is not advised for longer durations though the intentions of those discouraging them are not clear. There are no proven risks but still there are warnings. Well you have to get into grip with the fact that anything in excess is harmful. So remember, if you are pregnant or faces some estrogen induced problems then it is highly recommended that you seek the help of your physician before going into the habit of prolonged black cohosh consumption.
