Oregon’s Wild Harvest Black Cohosh Review
This review is for a product called Black Cohosh Support for Menopausal Symptoms. This product offers the consumer support with the uncomfortable symptoms that are often associated with going through the big change that is menopause. These symptoms include hot flashes, sweating, irritability, mood swings, decreased libido, and insomnia. Women who go through menopause also state that they notice a significant decrease in their cognitive functioning as well as their ability to concentrate. The manufacturers of this product claim that use of this dietary supplement cannot only reduce symptoms of menopause but it may also be beneficial to women who are premenopausal.
- Organic Black Cohosh Root (Cimicifuga racemosa) – 300mg
- Organic Brown Rice Flour
- Pullulan Non-GMO vegetarian capsules
Black Cohosh Root is effective when used to treat menopause symptoms in women due to it being a natural source of triterpene glycosides. We are skeptical that this short list of ingredients can adequately address all of the varied symptoms associated with menopause including hot flashes, sleep issues, irregular periods, and more.
Take one, or two capsules daily with a meal. The manufacturer does specify the preferred time of day to take the supplement, nor who should take one capsule or two capsules.

Black Cohosh Support for Menopausal Symptoms Review – The Bottom Line
In summarizing our review of Black Cohosh Support for Menopausal Symptoms, we found a couple of things encouraging. The supplement is non GMO, certified organic, and has vegetarian capsules so suitable for vegetarians and vegans. We also liked that it is free from fillers, stearates, and binders. It does not contain dairy, wheat, gluten, peanuts, soy, or corn allergens. Also there is no animal testing nor by-products, artificial flavors or colors. Pricewise, this supplement is good value for money at $16.95 for a six weeks’ supply. We also liked that there is free shipping when spending over $50. We do have some less positive comments however. In terms of dosage, the manufacturer does not state the best time of day to take the supplement nor who should take one capsule, or two capsules. There are no bulk buying discounts, nor new customer incentives offered by the manufacturer. We were concerned by the number of warnings that the manufacturer included with this supplement. We suggest that you look elsewhere for a menopause supplement, ideally for one that is backed by a strong return policy and guarantee which also has a bulk buying discount.
