Gentle support for pre-menstrual fluctuations

Based on extensive research into women's health issues, tocoelle focuses on women's intrinsic monthly cycle, offering support for normal, individual equilibrium during the premenstrual week.

Maintain your equilibrium during those seven days each month

A woman's power to maintain her feminine health and vitality requires different approaches over the course of a lifetime. Beginning with the onset of menstruation and continuing through menopause, women must cope with a variety of physical and mental disruptions related to their monthly menstrual cycle. In keeping with women's increased participation in the workforce and diversifying lifestyles, Otsuka Pharmaceutical embarked on research to develop a product to support women's vitality and wellbeing by addressing disruptions caused by periodic fluctuations. After 25 years of research, tocoelle is the result.
The tocoelle product name was selected to reflect the primary ingredient γ-tocopherol (toco), and the French word for woman (elle).
