One of the reasons we love having a Vim & Vigor blog is that we can spotlight some of the powerful herbal ingredients that we’ve chosen to include in our natural supplements.
Although various herbs, wild vegetables, and flowering plants have been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, many people lack knowledge about what these plants are called and what they can be used for.
As you may know, Vim & Vigor contains not one or two, but 14 different natural herbs that are grown organically in closely monitored gardens right here in the United States of America. We’ve carefully chosen each herb and flowering plant because it has the ability to provide significant health benefits for you, the consumer.
In this blog, we’ll dive into the details about a natural supplement known as Black Cohosh, which is an integral ingredient in our natural apple cider vinegar tonic.
Where Does Black Cohosh Come From?
Black cohosh is a member of the buttercup family. Black cohosh is native to North America. It can be found growing in the wild from the extreme south of Ontario all the way to central Georgia, and as far west as Missouri and Arkansas.
Black Cohosh Has Been Used As A Medicinal Plant For Over 200 Years
“More than two centuries ago, Native Americans discovered that the root of the black cohosh plant (Actaea racemosa, formerly known as Cimicifuga racemosa) helped relieve menstrual cramps and menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, irritability, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. Today, people use black cohosh for these same reasons. In fact, the herb has been widely used in Europe for more than 40 years and is approved in Germany for premenstrual discomfort, painful menstruation, and menopausal symptoms,” reports the University of Maryland’s Medical Center.
