Ingredients supplier Farlong Pharmaceutical changes name to Farlong Nutraceutical

The company says it made the change, after 24 years in operation, to better reflect its roots in the growing nutraceuticals industry.

Ingredients supplier and supplement manufacturer Farlong Pharmaceutical (Walnut, CA) has a new name: Farlong Nutraceutical. The company says it made the change, after 24 years in operation, to better reflect its roots in the growing nutraceuticals industry.

As a vertically integrated, plant-based-ingredient and supplement company, Farlong works to discover and develop unique medicinal herbs, plant extractions, and formulas. The company provides both contract manufacturing services as well as more than 400 unique ingredients for health and beauty brands, as well as its own line of retail supplements. Its branded ingredients include Ginseng Plus Panax NotoGinseng for heart health—which was the subject of a recently published three-year clinical trial1—Lifeflower breviscapine for cognitive health, AstaBest astaxanthin, and InnerPure, a colon-detoxing ingredient. Its Good Agricultural Practices–certified farms are based in the Yunnan Province in China. Production adheres to current Good Manufacturing Practices.

On explaining the name change, Jing Struve, executive director of Farlong Nutraceutical, said in a press release, “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 aging, and protect the body from chronic diseases through medicinal herbs, dietary supplements, and functional foods.”
