At 2000 mg per ml we are giving you 8x more of the active ingredient than most of the other Scutellaria Extracts on the market. This allows you the flexibility to work with your practitioner to set the proper dosage for your needs, and those needing higher dosages will not have to consume so many drops of the formula to achieve the necessary levels. 

Our Chinese Skullcap extract has been prepared via Hydro-ethanolic extraction. It contain ethyl alcohol at 20% by volume for preservation and rapid absorption. (If desired, alcohol can be evaporated by placing extracts into hot water and steeping for about 5 minutes.)

Pharmacological effects of Huang Qin

The main chemical constituents of Chinese Skullcap Root are baicalein, baicalin, wogonin, wogonoside, neobaicalein, acetophenone, palmitic acid, oleic acid, proline, benzoic acid, radix scutellariae enzyme, and β-sitosterol.

These abundant bioactive flavonoid compounds are located in the roots of Scutellaria baicalensis. Of these antioxidant flavones, Baicalin and Wogonin have been researched the most thoroughly. This research has shown baicalin to strengthen the natural defenses of the body against pathogenic invaders by interrupting the actions of cell envelope proteins.

Other primary pharmacological effects of these flavonoids, include inflammation modulating, immune system support, neuroprotection, and protection against free radical damage.

In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Huang Qin (as well as Huang Lian and Hunag Bai) are commonly used to clear heat, sedate fire and dry dampness. Classic texts often describe Huang Qin to be most effective for Lung heat in the upper jiao.
