Skullcap can refer to 2 herbs: American skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) and Chinese skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis). Both forms of skullcap are used to treat different conditions and are not interchangeable.
American skullcap is native to North America, though it is currently widely grown in Europe and different regions of the world. It has been used for more than 200 years as a mild relaxant and as a medicine for stress, nervous anxiety, and convulsions. research shows that the American skullcap has effective antioxidant results and may help protect against neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
There’s even some proof to indicate that the American skullcap may inhibit food allergic reactions. Today, different herbs (such as valerian) are more generally used, although the American skullcap may be mixed with other calming herbs in some practices.
Animal researches indicate that the skullcap may help relieve symptoms of diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure),
American skullcap derives its name from the caplike appearance of the outer whorl of its small blue or purple flowers. It is a slender, heavily-branched plant that grows to a height of 2 to 4 feet and blooms each July. It grows wild in woods and meadows.
Chinese skullcap is related to and resembles the American skullcap, but it is a different plant. Its single stems bear a profusion of blue or purple flowers.
The leaves are used for medicinal purposes. These are harvested in June from a 3- to 4-year-old skullcap plant.
American skullcap is available as a powder or leaf.
