The Baikal Shihak belongs to the miraculous family of the Lamiaceae ( Lamiaceae ) and has extensive use in TČM. Its main constituents include flavonoids bajkalein, bajcalin, vogonin, vogonoside, oroxylin A, chrysin, apigetrin and others (see Li2011pep ). The main flavonoids of the genus Seshak are specific and are not found in other deaf-eyed species ( Zhao2016sfb ). Shihaku Bajkalski is similar to Scutellaria barbata and other species (eg, American Shihak , S. lateriflora ).
Effects of Baikal Shihak
Baikal shishak is a typical adaptogen and has a wide use in TČM. For a systematic overview of its effects, see the Li2011pep scientific review. Although Baikal Shihak has the potential for a number of civilization diseases, I would emphasize three main areas of use:
- Prevention and treatment of diabetes ( Yang2015dai , Xiao2014pte , Zhang2015wso ...)
- Prevention and treatment of cancer ( Lai2012ppc , Yeh2014hdc ...)
- Prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, namely:
Sissak is one of the most important anti-diabetic and anticancer herbs of TČM. Details and references as well as other effective plants can be found on the specific health issues listed above. Here's just so much that anti-diabetes is often used in combination with Chinese koptis ( Liu2013aet , Zhen2011aec ). Interestingly, in animals (rats), it also improved erection disrupted by experimental diabetes ( Li2016bes ).
With anticancer effects, scientists are overtaking themselves in discovering new amazing plants and fungi until one knows what is actually the best. TČM, which is governed by its tradition, ranks among the 5 most efficient shakers. Taiwanese TCM is well-known for the tumors of bayalis and bearded hamster, as shown by the statistical studies Lai2012ppc , Yeh2014hdc and Chao2014ppc in breast cancer and colorectal cancer . The use of the hemoglobin in hepatic cancer (hepatoma) is devoted to experimental study Kan2017sbd and also to the first paragraph in the Taiwanese review Ting2015ptr . Statistics on the practice of TCM for other types of tumors are being worked out.
Regarding the other effects of the shishak, I would add that in order to prevent atherosclerosis, the shihak combines also with the yamen gardenia ( Liu2014oab ). Shihak is a powerful antioxidant with a specific anti-inflammatory effect ( Yoon2009aes , Dong2015bil ) and allergies ( Jung2012aes , Shin2014pes ...), not only against the above-mentioned diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, but also for the treatment of respiratory infections ( Chen2017sba , Shi2016bsb . ..), bowel problems ( Ribeiro2016ebg , Liu2015bro ), and hepatitis ( Guo2007ava ).
It is worth mentioning that the shige has significant antibacterial effects ( Bozov2015aan , Qian2015sbb ) and also works against viruses ( Li2015aeb , Kwon2016aao ). Shihash also has nerve effects (against depression , Alzheimer's disease , possible nootropic effects and possible improvement in sleep ).

Shihak is a typical plant adaptogen
Baikal Shihak and other species of the genus Scutellaria meet the definition of adaptogen as they spread their indications, and do not have unwanted unilateral effects on the healthy organism. The quasi-harmlessness of high doses was experimentally demonstrated by the Yimam2016wro study. Anyone who doubts the clinical validity of the cited scientific studies does not reject the unscientific practice of the TCM , which is run by millions of doctors in the world - bearded Shihash and bearded Shihash are really the most popular herbs with a wide range of indications ( Zhao2016sbg ) in TČM .
