  • Vasodilative

Scientific evidences show thatNotoginseng (Sanqi) also helps to restore cholesterol and blood pressure to more normal levels and keep them there. Human clinical studies also show that Notoginsengcan reduce angina, or chest pain associated with coronary heart disease. 

 In 2020, Farlong Pharmaceutical published the results of a three-year phase II double blind and placebo controlled human clinical trial of Ginseng Plus® Notoginseng extract they commissioned on the cardiovascular benefits of notoginseng supporting these purported benefits.

 In addition to the protection of cardiovascular disease, researches also show that notoginseng may lower the risk of developing liver disease and help reduce the severity of symptoms in those with the illness. 


Physical Stamina and Performance

 Early evidence has found notoginseng could help people who are not athletes to exercise for longer durations. By helping to increase healthy, natural energy levels, it also helps to reduce fatigue. Additionally, it may relieve muscle soreness following exertion.


Pain Relief

 By helping to increase circulation and reduce inflammation, notoginseng may be able to help reduce pain, both chronic and acute. It may even be useful in relieving pain associated with health conditions like osteoarthritis. 



 As one particular study, HYPERLINK "" \t "_blank"Therapeutic Potential and Cellular Mechanisms of Panax Notoginseng on Prevention of Aging and Cell Senescence-Associated Diseases found notoginseng has many benefits for reducing, relieving and slowing the signs of aging and health and wellness matters associated with aging. These include:

  • Anti-tumor effects that can help reduce the risks of cancer
  • Protection from cognitive dysfunctions related to neurodegeneration, such as in cases of Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease
  • Improvements in chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, reduced cell proliferation, lipid deposition, cell apoptosis and irreversible growth arrest that could lead to vascular aging, cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases, and microcirculatory disturbances)
  • Reduction in bleeding, both internally and externally, including injury-related bleeding, postpartum bleeding, and intracranial hemorrhage, or bleeding within the skull
  • Antioxidant benefits that can help prevent, relieve and improve resistance to illness and disease
  • Stroke relief and potential recovery
