“The term ‘nutraceutical’ is derived from ‘nutrition’ and ‘pharmaceutical,’ which more precisely describes what Farlong does,” said Jing Struve, Executive Director
Ingredient and supplement company Farlong Pharmaceutical has changed its’ name to Farlong Nutraceutical. Established in 1998, the functional ingredient and formula provider develops and supplies herbs, plant extracts, and formulas at its cGMP-certified manufacturing facilities and distribution channels.
“The term ‘nutraceutical’ is derived from ‘nutrition’ and ‘pharmaceutical,’ which more precisely describes what Farlong does as we strive to provide naturals ways to improve health, slow down ageing, and protect the body from chronic diseases through medicinal herbs, dietary supplements, and functional foods,” said Jing Struve, Executive Director of Farlong Nutraceutical.
The company provides contract manufacturing services and more than 400 ingredients for health and beauty brands to develop proprietary formulas and product lines, and also produces its own consumer line of natural supplements from seed to shelf. Farlong’s good agricultural practice certified farms are located in Yunnan Province, a region known for harvesting specific medicinal herbs. Its products address cardiovascular and cognitive health, antioxidant nutrition and colon detoxing.
In 2020, the company completed a three-year clinical trial to determine the effects of its ginseng extract. The supplement was well-tolerated and results showed it may mediate blood pressure and HDL-C, reducing the risk of heart disease.
