SICHUAN, China, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Health Resource, Inc. (OTCBB: CHRI) announced today the successful development of a revolutionary TCM migraine medication called Toufeng Migraine tablet. The medication has demonstrated an effective rate of 96.5% in clinical observations. The new product was developed utilizing the company's Dahurian Angelica (DAR) as one it's key ingredients.
