Product Information

    Scutellaria baicalensis, also known as Chinese skullcap, is a perennial flowering plant highly prized for its reputed medicinal properties. The low-growing plant bears flowers that vary from blue to purple. Long a mainstay of traditional Chinese medicine, skullcap roots are ground into powder that is used to treat a variety of ailments, including allergies, headaches, infections and inflammation. Research studies have confirmed some of the traditional claims for this herbal remedy and have also revealed other health benefits. 

    Anticancer Properties

    Preliminary in-vitro and animal testing has shown that some of the phytochemicals, or plant-based compounds, in Scutellaria baicalensis can trigger early cell death in certain cancers, according to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. However, some studies have indicated that baicalin, one of the plant’s components, can actually weaken the antitumor potential of Chinese skullcap extract. In a study published in 2013, University of Chicago researchers prepared an extract of Scutellaria from which the baicalin had been removed and used it to treat human colorectal cancer cells in vitro. In the March 2013 issue of the “International Journal of Oncology,” researchers reported that this unique skullcap formula without baicalin significantly inhibited the growth of malignant cells and hastened their demise.

    Antiallergic Properties

    Based on its traditional use as an anti-inflammatory, South Korean researchers studied the effects of Scutellaria baicalensis in reducing adverse reactions to known allergens. They conducted laboratory and animal tests to assess the herb’s antiallergic properties. In an article in the May 2012 issue of the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology,” researchers revealed that the skin of rats injected with Scutellaria exhibited significantly less inflammatory reaction than was seen in the control group after both groups were subjected to known allergens. Human cells pretreated with Scutellaria showed a sharply reduced release of histamines when exposed in vitro to known allergens. Histamines are proteins that the body releases in reaction to allergens.

    Neuroprotective Properties

    Stroke can cause significant damage to brain cells deprived of oxygen during an interruption of blood flow to the brain, whether caused by a blood clot or bleeding in the brain. South Korean researchers conducted an animal study to evaluate the ability of Scutellaria baicalensis and four of its bioactive components to minimize stroke damage. Laboratory rats in which stroke had been induced were treated with a methanol extract of Scutellaria, as well as four of its components: baicalein, baicalin, wogonin and wogonoside. In a 2012 issue of “Planta Medica,” researchers reported that all agents except baicalin significantly inhibited the death of brain cells, demonstrating a strong potential role in the treatment of stroke.

    Antidiabetic Properties

    A Chinese study indicates that baicalein and baicalin, two of the bioactive components in Scutellaria baicalensis, may be useful in treating diabetes. In a laboratory study, researchers treated pancreatic cells from hamsters with each of the skullcap phytochemicals. They found that both substances prolonged the survival rate of these cells and also stimulated their secretion of insulin in the presence of glucose. Researchers published their findings in a 2012 issue of “Advanced Materials Research.”

    On any issue where no specific advice is given to consumers please follow this general advice if you are currently taking the product:
    you are advised to discontinue use and consult your pharmacist or herbal medical doctor.

    you should continue to take any medication prescribed by your doctor.


    Q: How much water should I boil with how much tea/herb?

    A: Generally you boil 20g of tea/herb with 2L. of water. The ratio does not matter. However, it is recommended that you control the
    saturation of the tea (how strong it is) depending on your personal preference and body condition.

    Q: How do you calculate how much time you should boil water with tea/herb?

    A: It depends on the tea/herb.
    For leaves: boil for 15~20 min.
    For hard fruits, roots, and stems: If you soak the tea/herb in water
    for 1~2 hours before boiling, you can save time in boiling, and also get a deeper flavor than without soaking.

    Q: Do you sell other tea/herbs not listed on the site?

    A: Currently, what is listed on the site is what we mostly deal with in retail stores. However,
    if there is a certain tea/herb that you wish to 
    get, you can send an email to info@princeherb.com. Then, we may offer a price for obtaining the tea/herb, answer questions, and even offer purchase.

    Q: Can you mix household tea/herbs with Princeherb's tea/herbs?

    A: Yes, you can combine 5~10g of teas/herbs that you already have with Princehrb.com's teas/herbs.
    Although brewing one tea/herb is still good, combining 2~3 teas/herbs helps bring out the remedial effects of the tea/herbs better than brewing just one tea/herb. However, most tea/herbs contain natural toxins, and it is recommended that you boil 1~2 pieces of liquorice root along with the tea/herb to remove the toxin.

    Q: What is the direction of Natural Pills & Powder?

    A: Pills : 2-3 times a day / 20-40pills /  Powder : Mix the power with water, milk, rice, or soup. 
        No Caffeine, No Chemical Additives. No Food Color, No Antisepic.
