Description - Research and Analysis

Name

Scutellaria lateriflora L. (Lamiaceae), commonly called skullcap, mad dog, mad weed, and hooded willow herb.

Source

A perennial plant with purple flowers, it blooms in the U.S. from July to September. It is usually found growing by ditches and river banks, wherever there is a damp environment. Closely related varieties grow in Europe and Asia (S. Baicalensis Georrgi). Remedies are made from the roots of the plant.

History

During the 1700s, physicians used the herb to help support rabies, which is why it is sometimes known as "mad dog." Skullcap was also used to help support tetanus and seizures. Its common name, skullcap, comes from the fact that it was often given to inmates of mental asylums who were required to wear skullcaps. Traditional Chinese herbalists have used skullcap to help support neonatal jaundice and to speed convalescence.

Traditional Support Uses

Nervine, sedative, and antispasmodic.

Commission E Recommendations

Skullcap is not on the Commission's approved list. In fact, it is not mentioned at all.

Possible Effects

Until fairly recently, most researchers considered this herb to be devoid of health value. Studies utilizing more sensitive techniques now suggest a number of possible benefits.

There is, for example, some laboratory evidence that an as yet uncharacterized component blocks the effects of some of the stress hormones (adrenalin). Skullcap contains a number of different flavonoids, and some of them possess anti-inflammatory properties, at least in the laboratory.

One kind of flavonoid, trihydroxyflavone, is a very effective free radical scavenger. These same flavonoids also show promise as an approach to help avoid the closure of coronary arteries that have been opened with balloon angioplasty (restenososis).

Studies of patients being addressed for lung health have shown that adding skullcap extract to the product regime partially fights the immune depression that accompanies medical treatments.

Adding skullcap may also decrease the amount of necrosis factor (a hormone that causes cell death, and that is believed to be one of the chief causes of wasting seen in patients) circulating in the bloodstream. However, claims that skullcap calms the stomach, lowers blood pressure, and acts as a tranquilizer have never been evaluated in clinical trials.

Dosage

Standard infusion or 3-9 grams; of the liquid extract, 10-30 drops.

Traditional herbalists recommend an infusion made with one teaspoon of dried herbs steeped in one cup of boiling water for 20-30 minutes, two to three times a day.

Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into the serving pitcher straining the tea bags. Add ice and top-up with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
 

Cautions

Keep out of reach of children.

Concerns

Ten years ago, there were reports suggesting that skullcap caused liver damage. The results of later studies suggested that the toxicity probably occurred because herb wholesalers had been substituting germander root for skullcap. The explanation is probably correct, because the latest research studies show that skullcap extract protects the livers of experimental animals exposed to a range of liver toxins.

Warnings

Provided that skullcap, and not germander, is in the extract, there would seem to be little cause for concern. Consumers must carefully read the label, and buy only from producers with trusted brand names.

Drug Testing

None of the components in skullcap should crossreact or interfere with any of the standard workplace urine drug screening tests.
