HAYA Labs Black Cohosh - Black Koho (Actaea racemosa, Cimicifuga racemosa) is also known as debryanka. Cimicifuga generic name is derived from the Latin word "cimicus", meaning insect and "fugare" - "banished" (the plant is known for its ability to chase away insects). "Black" refers to the dark colored rhizome, and "Koho" is an old Indian word for "dark".
