Taisho Launches "Menfula Hot <IM>"
| Taisho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (President: Akira Uehara) announces the launch of "Menfula Hot <IM>"on September 19, Japan’s first indomethacin-formulated poultice containing vitamin E.
"Menfula Hot <IM>" is especially potent against long-term pain in the shoulders and lower back because it is infused with three ingredients that have analgesic effects on areas commonly affected by muscle pain.
Indomethacin, one of the active ingredients, directly controls pain by inhibiting production of the pain-producing and enhancing substance prostaglandin. Another active ingredient, capsicum extract, warms the affected site over a wide area to relax strained muscles.
In addition, vitamin E, included for the first time ever in an indomethacin-formulated poultice, promotes blood circulation at the affected site while removing accumulated lactic acid caused by congestion and oxygen deficiency.
"Menfula Hot <IM>" fits snugly against the skin, thanks to its excellent elasticity and adhesive properties, even if you move vigorously. This all-new warm-sensation poultice is also free of annoying odors.
