Taiho Pharmaceutical Launches Its First Food with Function Claims Product to Counter Cold Hands Among Women

Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. announced today the launch of Rismitas, a food with function claims, to counter cold hands, an indefinite symptom*1 common among women. The new product will be released today, January 18, on Taiho Pharmaceutical’s official online shop.

Rismitas is a supplement containing the functional ingredient L-citrulline*2, which works to maintain body temperature in the hands (the center of the back of the hands, and wrists) when it gets cold.

The name Rismitas conveys Taiho Pharmaceutical’s desire that this product gives customers a sense of ease and a positive outlook, helping to balance the rhythms of the mind and body and allowing the pursuit of self-fulfillment. This wish is also expressed in the product’s tagline, “Bloom Every Day. Be Yourself with Rismitas”

Rismitas is Taiho Pharmaceutical’s first product in the category of food with functional claims. It was developed in order to help support women who work, take care of housework, and raise children by solving the issue of cold hands, a problem faced by many women.

Taiho Pharmaceutical will contribute to a society enriched by smiles―one smile leading to the next―by continuing to identify people’s real needs and creating new markets by meeting them precisely.
