What is Ma Ying Long Hemorrhoids Ointment?
Our review today is of one of Active Herb’s products called Ma Ying Long Hemorrhoids Ointment. This cream is advertised as the most popular hemorrhoid treatment in China. It is presumed to treat symptoms such as burning, itching and discomfort.* It is also said to alleviate pain, reduce swelling and promote tissue regeneration.*
This ointment contains several active ingredients, like:
- Pearl barley
- Synthetic Bezoar
- Synthetic Musk
- Amber, also known as St. John’s Wort
The cream also contains Vaseline and lanolin. Thankfully, the manufacturer advertises that the product is gluten free and that it contains no artificial coloring or other additives.
This product is for external use only, it should never be administered orally. The manufacturers recommend the customers to apply the cream twice a day, once in the morning and one again in the evening. The cream should be applied on the affected area, after it has been previously cleaned.
One container of this product costs $5.99. It is remarkably cheap, especially when compared to other similar products. This actually raises some questions regarding the quality and the effectiveness of the used ingredients. Not to mention the fact that they even offer a $1 discount for customers who purchase more than five tubes.
Possible Side Effects
The manufacturer says that there are no known side effects of this treatment, as long as it is used properly (externally only). Pregnant and breastfeeding women are advised to consult a medic before applying the cream.
One important downside of this ointment is the fact that it does not come with a guarantee. The manufacturer doesn’t offer any kind of information about refunds, returns or even about transportation fees. Unfortunately, customer reviews are very few, therefore unreliable, so there really is no guarantee that this product is worth it.
The Bottom Line
All in all, this is a very affordable hemorrhoid fix. Even if it may take a while to work, the price and the lack of side effects are its main advantages. Unfortunately, the price is also one of the reasons why we still remain skeptical about it, because it may be an indicator of low quality or ineffective ingredients. Add that to the lack of a guarantee and you might want to also check out other options.
