Dr. Nick Notes American Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) is an herbaceous perennial mint native to the forests & swampland of Eastern North America. It produces ridged leaves and small flowers ranging in colors from purple and blue to white and pink. The flowers have a cap like appearance that contributes to the common name of this botanical ally. Native American tribes used Skullcap to treat schizophrenia and rabies which contributes to the herb’s aliases “mad weed”, “mad dog weed”, or “mad dog skullcap”. Culturally Skullcap has been used in large amounts during spiritual ceremonies to bring about visions during initiations.
Today herbalists suggest this plant ally to calm the nerves, reduce stress, and promote more deep sleep. Our Ultrasonic Skullcap Tincture is exceptional – a perfect balance of functionality with efficacy! The extract / tincture seems to deliver a superior nervine quality which produces negligible effects on cognition. Body seems to relax, mind tends to get more clear and the stress relating to physical stress in the body seems to dissolve. This is great botanical solution for reducing stress during the day hours and remaining productive at a job or active tasks. Using Skullcap before bedtime, my mind seems to more easily be guided into the direction of my choice. When choosing to rest, my body drifts off into sleep quickly and effortlessly. Upon my awakening, I’ve been impressed with how restored by physical body and mind feel! At reasonably high doses (1 ounce of tincture), my body noticed no toxic load or negative side effects. While I wouldn’t say there is a ceiling for effectiveness, I would also say that not much is needed to receive Skullcap’s benefits (¼ dropper – 2 droppers is my personal window for usage) and that at higher quantities, much less of an increased window of effectiveness is apparent.
Using Skullcap I also notice little – no alteration of my mood (ie. euphoria). Skullcap seems to be highly focused as a physical body tonic, at least for my physiology. Perfect botanical ally for busy, productive & high-stress lifestyles – especially for those interested in performing with the edge they are used to performing at! This is truly a powerful nervous system balancing, nervine ~ A super-hero botanical ally, very useful for super-heroes! How to Use
