IN THE NEWS: Lifeflower® Breviscapine and Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng™ Extract Receive “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS) Self-Affirmation Status

Farlong Pharmaceutical, a vertically integrated, plant-based ingredient and supplement company, has received Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) self-affirmation status for its ingredients Lifeflower® Breviscapine and Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng™ extract.

Lifeflower® Breviscapine, an active flavonoid component extracted from Erigeron Breviscapus, contains more than 90 percent of scutellarin. Scutellarin has been shown to enhance memory, cognitive function and brain health; increase brain circulation; and promote the development of new blood vessels. A series of safety studies were conducted, and the expert panel committee concluded that Lifeflower® breviscapine manufactured consistent with cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) is GRAS based on scientific procedures for use as an ingredient in yogurt, nutritional bars, smoothies at 84 mg per serving, and dietary supplements at 200 mg per person per day.

Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng™ extract, extracted from Panax Notoginseng™ roots, contains more than 75 percent of total saponins, such as notoginsenoside R1, ginsenoside Rg1, Ginsenoside Re, Ginsenoside Rb1 and Ginsenoside Rd. Notoginseng saponins have been shown to enhance heart and brain health, maintain normal cholesterol levels, improve physical performance and stamina, help reduce fatigue, promote radiant skin, and increase heart and brain circulation. Scientific studies led the expert panel committee to conclude that Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng™ extract manufactured consistent with cGMP is GRAS based on scientific procedures for use as an ingredient in sports beverage, yogurt, nutritional bars, smoothies, chocolates and dietary supplements at 200 mg per person per day.
