Scute (Huang Qin), which is the root of Scutellaria baicalensis, is an important herb widely used in Chinese herbalism.
The Chinese herb Huang Qin has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to support an otherwise healthy individual’s immune system in clearing occasional damp heat conditions.
Scute is available from other suppliers. What distinguishes Dragon Herbs Standardized Scute extract from other brands is the quality of the herb used to produce it and the production technology.
ALL HERBS in China (and from most places) come in different grades based upon their variety, seed stock, growing source, growing conditions, care of the cultivators or collectors, and processing at various stages of the supply chain and during production. These factors all contribute to the balance and potency of the product.
That’s a lot to consider. But Dragon Herbs does take all these into account in selecting our raw materials and in producing our herbal products.
Scute is so widely consumed in China that many domestic herb factories produce it. Most of this production uses low grade raw Scutellaria for price reasons.
Dragon Herbs does not use low grade, less effective, raw material for Standardized Scute or any of its products. Dragon Herbs identifies sources of the BEST raw material, the kind preferred in Shanghai or Hong Kong by those who know herbs and want the best. We use premium material to produce this important product.
Production technology also matters. Most factories just throw the herbs into a tank and cook the whole thing for a couple of hours, then they make a powdered extract of the tea using a lot of excipient (usually not natural). Dragon Herbs uses low temperature extraction using very pure water and no chemicals.
One very important process that most factories skip involves the collection of aromatic oils from the tea. Real Scute extract has a powerful bitter taste. Dragon Herbs always processes its herbs using an “oil trap.” An oil trap is a sophisticated device connected to the extraction system. It captures evaporating aromatic oils and collects them in crystallized form. These collected aromatic oils are therefore not lost. They are added back into the extract at the end of the process. And this makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
When you taste Dragon Herbs Standardized Scute extract, and other Dragon Herbs powdered extracts, you can always taste the difference. We know that for an herbal extract to work, it must be made correctly and with the best technology available in the world.*
