Scutellaria baicalensis root extract is an herb used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat a variety of conditions including hepatitis, infections, and cancer. It often is used in combination with other botanicals such as PC-SPES and sho-saiko-to.
Preclinical data suggest that compounds in S. baicalensis cause apoptosis in various cancer cells or protect against doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity. However, both S. baicalensis root and its main flavonoid baicalin appear to have dose-dependent pro- and anti-angiogenic effects. Some constituents may also have neuroprotective, anticonvulsant, and anti-inflammatory effects.
Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, or Chinese skullcap, has been widely used as a medicinal plant in China for thousands of years, where the preparation from its roots is called Huang-Qin. It has been applied in the treatment of diarrhea, dysentery, hypertension, hemorrhaging, insomnia, inflammation and respiratory infections. Flavones such as baicalin, wogonoside and their aglycones baicalein wogonin are the major bioactive compounds extracted from the root of S. baicalensis.

1. Relaxation and Stress Release – Skullcap for Calm!
Studies have suggested that scutellaria baicalensis root extract has the potential for strong stress relief and relaxation benefits. Baicalin acts on the GABA receptors in your brain, which are your body’s natural relaxation receptors. The GABA hormone is produced by your brain to promote sleep, pain-relief, and relaxation.
2. Neuroprotection – Baicalin helps protect your brain!
Researchers have known for some time that one of the top scutellaria baicalensis extract benefits is its ability to produce neuroprotective effects. Remarkably, Baicalin is able to protect nerve cells from damage in conditions of stress. Most importantly, this has been shown during brain ischemia – a lack of blood/oxygen supply in the brain.
3. May Help to Boost Learning Capacity
Studies have indicated that Baicalin extracts may have an ability to enhance memory and learning abilities. A number of animal studies have shown improvements in focus and memory-orientated tasks after using a Baicalin extract.
4. Helps Promote a Healthy Circulatory System
One important way that scutellaria baicalensis root extract help to promote a healthy circulatory system is by enhancing nitric oxide levels in your blood. Scientists have found that even a very low dosage of Baicalin is effective at raising nitric oxide levels.
5. Helps Promote Good Blood Glucose Levels
Blood sugar levels are especially important for people suffering from diabetes. However, maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is also important for otherwise healthy people.
Animal studies have suggested that Baicalin may have the potential to support healthy blood sugar levels. For example, studies have found that Baicalin improve the functions of AMPK enzyme, which is known to reduce blood sugar levels. At least one study has shown that high doses of Baicalin may have similar effects to a common agent for blood sugar levels.
6. Helps Reduce Inflammation
Scutellaria baicalensis extract have strong anti-inflammatory effects. This is especially relevant to macrophages and immune cells. Macrophages are immune cells that are involved in your body’s inflammation response. Macrophages are specifically involved in the initiation, maintenance, and resolution of inflammation.
Studies have shown that extracts from the Chinese Skullcap can activate the anti-inflammatory activity of macrophages. It seems that the mechanism involved is a binding activity to the estrogen receptors of macrophages.
