- Skullcap is a flowering plant long used in traditional medicine.
- Supplementing with skullcap may provide several health benefits, such as improved mood, reduced inflammation, and anticancer effects.
- However, human research on skullcap is lacking, and this supplement may cause several adverse side effects.
Suggested Use: Teas made of skullcap — sometimes blended with other herbs like lemon balm, though they may not have the same effects as supplements because tea is typically less concentrated.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
