Farlong’s InnerPure® Colon Detox

Xiaohongshen is derived from the dried roots and rhizomes of Rubia yunnanensis Diels. The extract works to nourish and enhance regular blood flow and remove blood stasis to promote tissue regeneration. It is also used to help with infertility; bruises and strains; numbness; joint swelling and pain; rheumatic pain; cough and wheezing; dizziness; headaches; abdominal pain; and insomnia.

Qingyangshen is extracted from the dried roots of Cynanchum otophyllum Schneid, Asclepiadaceae and has been utilized to help with strengthening muscles, bones, the spleen and stomach; treating cold symptoms; relieving spasms; lumbar weakness; muscle and bone pain; loss of appetite; epilepsy, and febrile convulsions.

Both ingredients are used to develop the company’s proprietary formula for InnerPure® Colon Detox, an all-natural blend of eight different herbal extracts. Farlong is currently conducting a 30-day double blind, placebo-controlled safety and efficacy study with 125 healthy human subjects using InnerPure® Colon Detox to determine the effects on healthy bowel movement, weight management and acne. The formula’s many properties include the ability to promote detoxification and healthy, glowing skin; reduce acne, dark spots and pimples; improve circulation and bowel movement; and promote anti-aging. InnerPure® can be a powerful tool for managing weight as it helps with digestion by assisting the body to better absorb nutrients from food, allowing you to eat less and still receive the energy benefits. It also enhances the metabolism which can assist in burning off fat more efficiently, especially during exercise.

Farlong’s ingredient studies:
Farlong is currently conducting a 90-day double blind, randomized, controlled, parallel study to determine the safety and effectiveness of Farlong Lifeflower® Breviscapine on improving long and short-term memory, concentration, and clarity of thinking in healthy individuals. In 2020, the company completed a three-year clinical trial in North America to determine the effects of Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng™ extract, which demonstrated that Farlong NotoGinseng™ (Farlong Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng extract) supplementation was well tolerated and may have a positive influence on reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease by improving blood pressure and HDL-C. The trial results are published in a peer-reviewed medical journal, Current Nutraceuticals Journal by Bentham Science.
