difference in black cohosh and blue cohosh 6 weeks before due date???

Okay I posted a post in the Dr. Christophers post, as I am curious now. In there a poster said it is okay to take black cohosh but not blue. I thought it was the other way around. The 5 week prep birth formula I have is clalled polly-jean, and it has blue cohosh.

But Dr christopers has Black cohosh, so is that better, I always thought it was the other way around.

If you look in the other post you will see the ingredients for both formulas.

Thanks kindly in advance.

If it were me, I would steer clear of either cohoshes before 6 weeks.

Yes, I am talking about once you hit the 5 to 6 weeks left, like what the formulas are made for. :O)

I'm not an herbalist at all, but my understanding is that when taken together, blue and black cohosh can induce labor. I'm not sure what they do when taken separately

I'm sorry, I didn't write that clearly. I would not take black or blue cohosh unless I was right around my due date. And even then, I would be hesitant.

Yes, I am thinking I would rather just make a tea that gives you minerals and such.

Like nettle, comfrey and rose hip, peppermint, and cayenne.
