Chinese Skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) is native to the mountains of southwest China and was used safely for centuries in traditional medicine to promote a healthy Inflammation response and to support cardiovascular health. Research at numerous prestigious U.S. medical institutions now demonstrates that Chinese Skullcap contains some of the most exciting anti-aging and healthy inflammation response molecules known to science including baicalin, baicalein and wogonin.

A 2005 study published in "Blood" is titled: "Baicalein, a component of Scutellaria radix from Huang-Lian-Jie-Du-Tang (HLJDT), leads to suppression of proliferation and induction of apoptosis in human myeloma cells". It was found to have anticancer, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Researchers tested its three main components (baicalein, baicalin, and wogonin) separately, and concluded that baicalein had the strongest anti-MM effects. In particular, it inhibited the proliferation of myeloma cell lines and the survival of primary myeloma cells, especially MPC-1- immature myeloma cells.
