In these days, people have more opportunities to take “medicine” in the broad sense of the word than a decade ago. While the frequency of taking medicine to treat illnesses probably has not changed too much compared to before, there are many people taking supplements for beauty and health on a daily basis nowadays.

In such day and age, there are many people who dislike taking medication because of the strain of taking many pills at once, or because it feels as the medicine is left in the throat. Of course, there are many people who have a dislike for medicine as such, saying that they dislike it because of the bitterness which remains in the mouth or the bad smell.
Those kind of people should get to know Ryukakusan Co. Ltd.’s “Raku Raku Fukuyaku Jelly”.
