Baical Skullcap (Scutellaria Baicalensis)

antiviral baical skullcap Jan 05, 2021

This little vine almost died. You might remember my post last fall showing a tiny sprout peeking out of the dead brambles. And look at him now! What a comeback!

Baical is a completely different plant than his western cousin, Scutellaria Lateriflora, which is commonly used for sleep among other things. No, Baical is one of the most powerful herbal antivirals, with a history of use against a wide range of colds, flues, and nasty viruses. 

Originating in China, Baicalin is a yellow root with compounds that disrupt the viral envelope, impeding a virus from replicating, and then stopping viral infection.  Yes. Stops viral infection. 

So why don’t we all know about the magic of Baical Skullcap - especially now?

Well, Chinese herbalists do. Global herbalists do. Even a few Naturopaths and nutritionists have heard about it through the herbal medicine grapevine. 

And we blend it with a few other amazing antiviral herbs to create some of the absolute strongest herbal antiviral medicine around. 

Scutellaria Baicalensis has never been more important. 

So even if you can’t find all of the antivirals we teach about, try to locate this one herb. But be sure to get the right Scutellaria and start fighting back. You can win this battle.
