Scullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) is a plant found mainly in North America. It can be found, among others, in wetlands, in wet forests and meadows. Although the plant itself can rise up to about 70 centimeters, its blue flowers are only about one centimeter long.
Due to the sedative properties of skullcap, the plant was used by Indians, who used to add it to roasted tobacco or to brew. Its biological activity is mainly due to flavonoids such as baicalein, baicalin, and wogonin. It also contains tannins, essential oils, and waxes.
Scullcap has a sedative, calming effect and can relieve anxiety. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the main neurotransmitter that inhibits the central nervous system. Baicalein and baicalin, by joining the GABA receptors, imitate the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitter, which has a relaxing and calming effect in a stressful situation. This plant was also used in medicine in neurosis.
Scullcap is used to facilitate falling asleep. Many people fail to calm down before a bedtime. While wriggling in bed, many thoughts are flowing their minds, which may be a sign of too little GABA. In relations to the above-described mechanism of action, Scullcap helps to calm the thoughts circulating in the mind and makes it easier to fall asleep.
Scullcap supports the proper functioning of the brain. The active ingredients contained in the plant have anti-inflammatory activity within the central nervous system. They can also reduce inflammation-induced neurons atrophy and support their development after injuries. They also reduce the negative effects of the accumulation of toxic amyloid beta.
Scullcap is also an antioxidant facilitating to fight free radicals and inflammation. Stress, toxins or insufficient sleep promote the accumulation of reactive oxygen species, called free radicals. Their excess wreaks havoc in the body, destroying DNA structures, damaging blood vessels or destroying collagen structures on the skin, which may trigger many diseases.
Scullcap supports liver function, which is the main organ responsible for the elimination of toxins from the body. Increased antioxidant activity was observed in the liver following the administration of baicalin. One of the studies confirmed that rodents, which were given alcohol along with baicalein, the had smaller liver damage compared to rodents that were given alcohol alone.
