Blue Cohosh was used by the North American Indians for cramps and menstrual problems. Cherokee, Chippewa, Iroquois, and other native North American Indians used Blue Cohosh herb for delayed delivery and to promote menstruation.
In recent times, Blue Cohosh has been shown to be useful in the regulation of menstrual cycles in women and is helpful in relieving painful menstruation. It is effective as an inhibiting agent to stop false labor pains in childbirth.
Blue Cohosh acts to stimulate the uterine muscle thereby advancing a delayed delivery. Because Blue Cohosh has a well deserved reputation for helping in cases of prolonged labor, it has been nick-named "a woman's best friend." It helps to relax the uterus so that delivery is easier, thus preventing pain and exhaustion. It is also useful to reduce inflammation of the uterus. If Blue Cohosh is given hours previous to delivery, it is said to be reliable and less dangerous where cases of labor are slow and painful.
