Scute (Huang Qin), which is the root of Scutellaria baicalensis,
is an important herb widely used in Chinese herbalism.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
