The Black cohosh we use for our medicinal product is the very best, carefully selected and cultivated in the optimum conditions. This extreme care ensures that the plants are harvested at their peak so their roots and rhizomes (the medicinal part of the plant) produce the highest yield of active ingredients.
After gently drying the plants to preserve the active ingredient, we use state of the art methods to extract, purify and measure it. Every Kira Menopause relief tablet contains a consistent, standardised 4.5 mg extract of Black cohosh (cimicifuga racemosa l) - equivalent of up to 55mg of dried root. This means you can be confident you will get the same dose every time.
We also ensure that we take the extract from the root when its active ingredients are at their highest level and most potent. We’ve even patented it (look for LI 182 on the label).
Warning do not exceed the stated dose. Do not use if you are under 18, are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to any of the ingredients or have ever had an oestrogen dependent tumour. In addition, patients who have active liver disease or a history of liver disease should not take Black cohosh in any form.
Black Cohosh may rarely cause liver problems. If you become unwell ( yellowing eyes/skin, nausea, vomiting, dark urine, abdominal pain, unusual tiredness ) stop taking immediately and seek medical advice.
Always read the label. For more information consult the Patient Information Leaflet.
