Skullcap, also known as Scutellaria lateriflora, is a medicinal herb that has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda.
Skullcap contains flavonoids that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. It has also been found to have anxiolytic effects, meaning it can help alleviate anxiety and promote relaxation.
Furthermore, skullcap has been shown to possess neuroprotective qualities by protecting brain cells from damage caused by oxidative stress. Its use as a sleep aid and mild sedative makes it an effective natural alternative for people who experience sleep disturbances or insomnia.
