Researching the products that you use to maintain your health is essential for staying on top of the latest information that we gain from scientific studies. Although Panax notoginseng has ancient roots, our company has found that interest in our product has increased over the past several years. As the aging population becomes more concerned about heart health, people have started looking for natural ways to maintain good blood flow. We’ve also noticed that the pandemic brought more attention to the importance of cardiovascular health for younger adults. Since notoginseng powder is one of our most popular products, we want to share what we know about why it is so good for the heart.
How Long Have People Been Using Notoginseng?
The history of this supplemental herb is as fascinating as its benefits. The pPanax notoginseng that we grow in our GAP (Good Agriculture Practice) certified plantations for our powder has ancient roots that go back for over 400 years, and this is just how far we’ve been able to track its use down through historical records. The plant was primarily used as a topical application that helped staunch bleeding in its earliest use. Over time, people developed methods that allowed it to be used internally through teas, soups, and other forms that were often touted for their ability to reduce the effects of aging and increase people’s sense of vitality.
Over the years, people’s methods for using the herb have changed. While the powder can still be used for topical and oral applications, our company has found it even more beneficial to consume the concentrated extract, such as Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng that contains 75% of total saponins. Taking a capsule once a day makes it easy to tap into the restorative benefits of this plant in the comfort of your own home. When a plant has been used for so many years, one has to think that there must be a good reason. Fortunately, modern science has been providing more answers as to why the herb is so effective for helping people maintain their heart health.
What Does the Science Say?
Farlong recently announced the publication of the results of their clinical trial titled “Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Triple-blind Study to Determine the Effect of Farlong Ginseng Plus® NotoGinseng Extract on Cholesterol and Blood Pressure,” in Current Nutraceuticals Journal by Bentham Science.
Additional novel findings including the concept of a lack of intervention was presented at American Heart Association’s (AHA) annual Scientific Sessions 2021 with a global audience from over 100 countries. Took place in Boston and virtually Nov. 13-15, 2021, AHA also published the study’s abstract in Circulation, the organization’s flagship scientific journal.
This study found that the participants who used the Farlong’s supplement for eight weeks showed reduced LDL cholesterol levels, which is sometimes referred to as the bad type. This type of cholesterol can build up in your arteries and lead to coronary disease. Making sure that your LDL levels stay low can help you prevent serious health conditions such as strokes and heart attacks.
The study also revealed that participants who used the Farlong’s supplement for eight to 12 weeks had slightly elevated HDL cholesterol levels, which is the good kind. This type of cholesterol helps to carry the bad kind out of the different parts of your body to the liver so that it can be removed from your bloodstream along with other toxins. While the study has more to reveal about whether or not this effect had the further benefit of helping to lower participants’ blood pressure, it is clear that the herb has multiple benefits that enhance cardiovascular health.
While our ancestors might have had to rely on word of mouth to figure out how to use this potent herb, we have the advantage of looking up studies that help us see exactly why the plant is known for benefiting heart health. Over the years, several research projects have been conducted that highlight the effectiveness of the plant. In another study, the herb’s effectiveness at helping people with coronary artery disease to maintain their health was assessed.
In this study, it was found that our Panax notoginseng extract had an anti-inflammatory effect on the cardiovascular system of people with coronary artery disease. The herb also helped regulate lipids or fats within the participant’s systems while further helping to regulate coagulative processes. Those who used the Panax notoginseng extract over a long-term period further had reduced instances of angina or chest pains.
What Health Conditions Do People Use Notonginseng Powder For?
Both ancient traditional Chinese practitioners and today’s modern health care providers use notoginseng for its ability to maintain and restore proper blood flow throughout the body. This has the effect of helping people to feel less pain and reduce inflammation in their body, which leads to many chronic conditions. These are just a few of the many ways that people use the herb to enhance their overall health care practices.
- stop external and internal bleeding
- shows promise for use in stroke treatments internationally
- alleviate post-exercise muscle soreness by promoting good blood flow
- address chest pain and angina attacks

What Makes the Herb So Effective for Maintaining Good Heart Health?
Understanding why the herb works so well can help you decide whether you want to add this supplement to your health regimen. Our NotoGinseng is naturally sourced, and it goes through a multi-step process to clean the portion of the plants and make sure that it is free from impurities. We’ve earned our name as one of the world’s top Panex notoginseng and extract suppliers by ensuring that our product is carefully monitored from the time we plant a seed on our GAP-compliant farm until we’ve shipped out our supplements to our satisfied customers.
Using a strict seed-to-shelf approach helps us ensure that the active components that we harvest from the plant are at their most potent. Notoginseng’s benefits mostly derive from its saponins, of which 80 different types can be found in the plant. When you use our supplements, the saponins help relax your blood vessels so that blood flows more freely, which has the effect of reducing blood pressure. When your body doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood to the different organs, less strain is placed on your heart. While noticeable effects do take time to appear in your vital sign readings, you may notice that you feel more energetic and are better able to think on your feet when you restore normal blood pressure in your body.
