What Is Skullcap 50% Polysaccharides Extract?The plant has ridge leaves and tiny flowers whose colour ranges from purple, pink, blue to white. The flowers (lobed) resemble the military helmets that were worn by the early European settlers, hence the name ‘Skullcap’. The settlers in the 1700’s commended this plant for its effectiveness against rabies. This gave this herb the name ‘mad dog weed’. The claim was later discarded as the herb became popular on a global scale. Studies have been conducted to investigate the health benefits of this plant. *
