Modern research supports the use of black cohosh for high blood pressure and heart problems because it equalizes circulation, as well as helping with asthma and bronchial complaints. Its use as an antidote for snakebites and to treat menstrual and menopausal complaints has since been supported by scientific research.

Numerous studies have researched its use for peri-menopause and post-menopause and have found it a beneficial alternative to hormone therapy. Symptoms such as depression and hot flashes were reduced significantly. This is thought to be due to the fact that black cohosh reduces the secretion of lutenizing hormone (LH), which is linked to hot flashes, drying and thinning of the vagina, night sweats, and other menopausal symptoms.

Research supports its use to treat all types of inflammation, nervous conditions, irritability, TB, pleurisy and tinnitus.
