But don't just take our word for it. According to the International Journal of Molecular Medicine, Skullcap has been known to induce apoptosis (sudden cell death) in cancerous cells due to the Scutellarein compound in the herb - and detailed in a study in Science Bulletin Journal, the herb has been applied in the treatment of hypertension, diarrhea and dysentery, and respiratory infections.

There are certain flavones reported to have these pharmacological properties including epato-protection, antibacterial and antiviral, antioxidant, and neuro-protective effects; for instance, by reducing the level of cholesterol in the heart, Skullcap may lower the chances of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, coronary disease, and stroke, as a result of build up of plaque in the arteries.
