Cimicifuga racemosa

We obtain our Cimicifuga racemosa, recently re-named to Actaea racemosa, from China.


Originally, it is native to eastern North America from the extreme south of Ontario to central Georgia, and west to Missouri and Arkansas. Today, China is one of the largest producers of organic Cimicifuga racemosa. It grows in a variety of woodland habitats, and is often found in small woodland openings. The roots and rhizomes have long been used medicinally by Native Americans. Extracts from these plant materials are thought to possess analgesic, sedative, and anti-inflammatory properties.


Today, black cohosh extracts are being studied as effective treatments for symptoms associated with menopause. You can find Cimicifuga in our product Femeno 1.
