Black Cohosh is a tall fruit bearing perennial plant in the buttercup family that is native to North America. Black cohosh can grow upwards of nine feet tall, and has been used for centuries by Native Americans as a natural supplement to support women's health, as well as other general health benefits.*
Black cohosh is also known as Black Snake Root, Rattle Root, Squaw Root and Bugbane. The roots of the black cohosh plant are believed to contain the greatest amount of active ingredients which is why it is used as the primary source of black cohosh as a dietary supplement.
