What is Scutellaria Baicalensis?
Scutellaria baicalensis is also known as Baikal Skullcap, Chinese Skullcap, or Golden Root, and is used in traditional Chinese practices. It was used for its unique benefits to cardiovascular and cognitive function with additional benefits to longevity. The Baikal Skullcap root is the part of the plant most commonly used in traditional and modern supplements. This is because the main bioactives reside in the roots, with very low levels in both the stem and leaves. The main bioactive compounds of Chinese Skullcap are Apigenin, Baicalein and Baicalin.
Baicalin and Baicalein, two important compounds in Baikal Skullcap, are believed to be responsible for many of the skullcap benefits. Baicalin is a flavone glycoside and may help promote healthy cognitive function through supporting memory and learning, and promoting neuroprotection. Baicalein, on the other hand, is a flavone taken from the roots of Scutellaria baicalensis and Scutellaria lateriflora. When the pair is implemented in the body, they can help to promote healthy stress levels without causing drowsiness.
Like Baicalein, Apigenin is also a flavone and can be found in a wide range of botanicals, such as chamomile, oranges, basil, oregano and beer. Apigenin can help support healthy stress levels as well as promote feelings of well being. In addition to this, some research even found that Apigenin may help promote healthy skin through supporting skin cell growth.

Unlocking Cognitive Support with Baikal Skullcap
Research surrounding Chinese Skullcap suggests that there are a myriad of Skullcap benefits. The first of which are the cognitive benefits, which are supported through neurogenesis, neuroprotection and balancing neuroinflammation. Neurogenesis helps to promote healthy brain growth. Neuroprotection protects neurons and cells in the brain while balanced neuroinflammation levels support an optimal environment for cognitive function. All of these functions work to support memory and promote cognitive function.
Memory is an element of cognitive function in particular that reaps Chinese Skullcap benefits. Skullcap has unique properties that help regulate beta-amyloid proteins and other things that may hamper cognitive processes. Research suggests that these effects may help support cognitive processes such as memory, learning, and overall cognitive function!
Baikal Skullcap can also support attention and focus throughout the day. With those characteristics, Skullcap goes above and beyond to provide a wide range of benefits. Research has shown that Apigenin, Baicalein, and Baicalin, three of the primary bioactives contained within Baikal Skullcap, work together to help to promote Baikal Skullcap’s benefits. Baicalein and Baicalin have demonstrated in various research studies the ability to help promote healthy stress levels. In addition to this, Apigenin was also found to help promote cognitive function by supporting balanced inflammation levels. Researchers believe that this extends to neuroinflammation and thus can help promote various cognitive processes.
