A member of the mint family, there are two types of commonly used Skullcap – American and Chinese. We use the American plant (scutellaria lateriflora) which is associated with many anti-inflammatory compounds, flavonoids and antioxidants. These are commonly used to support the body’s response to infections and inflammation and healthy digestion. Studies report that it also stimulates neurotransmitters that help calm nerves. For this reason, it’s also used to support healthy mood and sleep.
