Panax notoginseng has a 600-year old history as a tonic and hemostatic drug; over 200 compounds have been isolated from this plant, exhibiting a variety of pharmacological effects, and appropriately enough the genus name “Panax” is derived from the Greek word (Pan = all + axos = medicine) meaning ‘cure all’. Notoginseng nourishes the blood by dissipating blood stasis, inhibiting bleeding, enhancing circulation and alleviating pain.
The primary bioactive ingredients in ginseng plants are saponins, of which more than 60 have been identified. Saponins from ginseng plant exert angiogenic effects by activating vascular endothelial growth factor and its receptor in downstream signaling pathways. Further, ginsenoside Rg5, a compound newly synthesized during the steaming process of ginseng was found to promote angiogenesis and improve hypertension without adverse effects in the blood vasculature. Rg5 specifically increased phosphorylation of insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) resulting in stimulation of nitric oxide pathways to enhance angiogenesis.
Notoginseng is featured in nearly every Patented Herbal treatment in China. Of China’s 24 most well-known FDA-recognized health supplements, 19 contain NotoGinseng. NotoGinseng can be taken in capsule or powder form or combined with other herbs in a formula.
NotoGinseng has been primarily used to treat cardiovascular diseases by promoting blood circulation to dispel blood stasis, benefiting qi, and nourishing blood. In the Bencao Gangmu (Compendium of Materia Medica, 1596 A.D.) it is stated: "On account of the fact that Notoginseng is an herb belonging to the xue (blood) phase of the yangming and jueyin meridians, it can treat all diseases of the blood."

Modern researches support many of Notoginseng’s reputed “cure-all” properties:
Evidence shows that Notoginseng significantly ameliorates myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury. In addition, Notoginsenoside inhibits the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle, protects the vascular endothelium, lowers blood pressure, and exhibits anti-platelet aggregation effects.2 We are currently conducting a phase-II clinical study to determine the efficacy of Farlong Notoginseng on LDL-C and blood pressure in North America.
Farlong® Pharmaceutical is currently conducting a Phase II clinical trial with 100 subjects enrolling, to evaluate the efficacy of Farlong® NotoGinseng™ on lowering Low Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol (LDL-C) and blood pressure (BP). In this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind parallel study in human participants with elevated LDL-C, the clinical benefits of Farlong® NotoGinseng™ (Farlong Ginseng Plus™), a product synthesized from highly concentrated pharmaceutical grade notoginseng extract, and containing high potency bioactive components, notoginsenoside, ginsenoside Rb1 and ginsenoside Rg1, will be investigated for its efficacy on lowing LDL-C and BP.
Grown in a high-elevation region in Yunnan, China, Notoginseng's ecological specifications are highly unique. The plant matures for at least 3 years before harvesting can occur. After the harvest, the land is unusable for 7 years. Notoginseng only grows in acidic soil, ideally at 74 degree Fahrenheit and elevation between 1700 to 2000 meters within 2 degrees of the Tropic of Cancer (about 23 1/2° N). It has been cultivated in that area for over 400 years. Our Notoginseng grows in controlled environments under strict accordance with modern pharmaceutical GAP, GMP and US FDA standards. Each crop undergoes frequent inspection and testing by experts. Utilizing both pressure and ultrasound wash, ensures removal of all residues and non-plant content exceeding all national standards.
