Taiho Pharmaceutical releases Harncare Granules nationwide in Japan on Thursday, September 7-an effective herbal remedy to improve urinary function by warming up the body from the inside. (07/09/2017)

Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. announced today that on Thursday, September 7 it has launched throughout Japan a herbal remedy for mild incontinence and frequent urination. Harncare Granules (stick packs; designated second-class OTC drug) work effectively on these symptoms by warming up the body from the inside.

Harncare Granules is a galenical formulation that has the same active ingredients and efficacy as Harncare Drink, which is already on the market. The chocolate-flavored granules make it easy to take for those who are not fond of the bitter taste of medicine or drink-type medical preparations. The lightweight stick packs are easy to carry around and convenient.

The Harncare series uses an original method to extract eight types of crude drugs, including rehmannia root, alisma rhizome, and moutan bark, all of which are contained in the Chinese herbal medicine known as Hachi-mi-ji-o-gan. The aim is to improve the collection and elimination of urine, mild incontinence, frequent urination, residual urine, and difficulty in urinating for those who also have symptoms of decreased physical strength, weakened lower body, and cold feet and hands.

Taiho Pharmaceutical anticipates that the Harncare series will continue to contribute to people’s health and happy lifestyles in Japan.
