Latin Name: Scutellaria laterifolia


Type: Herbal


What is Scullcap?

Scullcap is a robust perennial herb that grows near wet habitats, like marshes. Although Scullcap is native to North America, it is now widely cultivated in Europe and other areas. As a genus, Scutellaria has many different varieties, but they have all been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years in very similar ways for an assortment of medicinal applications.


How Does Scullcap Work?

Various parts of the skullcap plant contain significant amounts of phytochemicals, like flavonoids and specific amino acids. These compounds have been shown in animal studies to bind to certain neurotransmitters and inhibit the release of other compounds that cause feelings of anxiety.2 It also contains antioxidants and a variety of minerals.1


What Are the Benefits of Scullcap?

Scullcap benefits the body by soothing the nervous system and reducing inflammation. When tissues are inflamed, we often feel pain, so the anti-inflammatory properties of skullcap can produce some relief from bruises or achy joints. A feeling of calm and relief from unrelenting anxiety are the major benefits of skullcap, often leading to a better overall sense of emotional well-being, increased energy and a stronger ability to focus.1
