Skullcap is the name of a flowering perennial plant from the mint family, Lamiaceae. With the scientific name Scutellaria lateriflora, this plant can be found in North America’s wet habitats. There are a few names for skullcap, including mad dog and blue skullcap. Both of them describe a hardy, moderate size plant with blue or purple flowers from the leaf bases on the main stem. While other species use the name skullcap and even have similar properties, the blue one is deemed best, as it has the widest range of uses and powerful chemical compounds.
The range of health benefits enjoyed by frequent users of skullcap is due to the presence of various phenolic compounds and flavones that impact the body in many different ways.
The plant was traditionally used by native Americans for hundreds of years. The extracts of American skullcap are also valuable for certain health conditions.
