Just in time for American Heart Health Month, Farlong releases study demonstrating extract’s supplementation has a positive influence on reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease
WALNUT, CALIF. (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 05, 2020
Just in time for American Heart Health Month, Farlong Pharmaceutical, a vertically integrated, plant-based ingredient and supplement company, announces the clinical trial results from a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel study on one hundred healthy adults to determine the effect of Farlong NotoGinseng™ (Farlong Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng extract) on cholesterol and blood pressure, conducted December 2016 through June 2019.
The findings of this study demonstrate that Farlong NotoGinseng™ (Farlong Ginseng Plus® Panax Notoginseng extract) supplementation is well tolerated and has a positive influence on reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease by decreasing blood pressure and selectively increasing HDL-C.
Sponsored by Farlong Pharmaceutical and conducted by KGK Science, Inc., the primary objective was the difference in serum LDL-C from baseline to week 12 between Farlong NotoGinseng™ and placebo after 12 weeks of supplementation. The secondary objectives were the difference in serum LDL-C, blood pressure, triglycerides, HDL-C, total cholesterol and in endothelial vasodilation as measured by the EndoPAT from baseline to week eight and week 12 between Farlong NotoGinseng™ and placebo.
Over a 12-week period, the participants were given one serving (two capsules) of the investigational product or placebo to take orally at the same time every day, 30 minutes before a meal for 84 days.
The results showed a significant decrease in serum LDL-C in Farlong NotoGinseng™ group from baseline to week eight. LDL Cholesterol is sometimes called the “bad” cholesterol because a high LDL level leads to a buildup of cholesterol in people’s arteries. There was a slight increase in serum HDL-C following 12 weeks of supplementation with Farlong NotoGinseng™. HDL (high-density lipoproteins) cholesterol is the “good” cholesterol. There were also within-group decreases in both systolic and diastolic blood pressures.
The placebo group had increases in systolic and diastolic blood pressures and a decrease in serum HDL-C. Clinicians suggest that if left unaddressed, these participants may progress to a disease state, and even a small reduction in blood pressure is clinically meaningful in populations at risk for developing cardiovascular diseases.
