Japan based Eisai Co., Ltd. announced that it has launched New Selbelle Premium Tablets and New Selbelle Premium Fine Granules (both are category-2 OTC drug, "New Selbelle Premium") at pharmacies and drugstores throughout Japan, as a new addition to the Selbelle brand lineup of products which protect and condition the weakened stomach with a gastric mucus barrier.
SEI-I, which is the value offered by the Selbelle brand, is Eisai's unique concept of increasing gastric mucus to protect the stomach wall while revitalizing the stomach to improve its condition. Stomach ailments, such as indigestion unrelated to overeating and stomach discomfort, prevent the enjoyment of eating on a routine basis. These ailments are thought to be caused by a decrease of mucus in the stomach and stagnation of stomach function that occur with aging.
For the first time in an OTC product, the in-house developed gastric mucus-increasing component 'teprenone' is contained in New Selbelle Premium at the same amount as found in prescription drugs.
The compounding amount of 'teprenone' was increased to 150mg / day for New Selbelle Premium from 112.5 mg / day for the conventional product. In addition, New Selbelle Premium contains two natural extracts that revitalize stomach functions and digestive enzymes that help to digest fat. The effect of SEI-I derived from these ingredients relieves stomach discomfort and restores the joy of eating by energizing the stomach.
As we enter the era of 100 years of life, Eisai considers it very important for all consumers to be able to enjoy their food every day in order to gain contentment in everyday life. With its launch of New Selbelle Premium, Eisai will evoke the joy of eating with the effects of SEI-I, and further respond to the wishes of consumers who want to enjoy their favorite foods through their whole lifetime and to enjoy their meals with precious family and friends.
