  3. Introduction


Maru is the Korean word meaning ‘the highest, original, first and sky’.

  • Himchanmaru Guarantees Good Health for All People!

    Himchanmaru makes health drinks and health pills with high-quality herbal ingredients, which are mixed with water and brewed over a long period for the drinks or ground up for the pills.

    Snail extract and chicken feet extract are Korea’s two leading health drinks. While snail and chicken feet are unfamiliar ingredients abroad, they are often used in Korea for strengthening the body and are mentioned in old medical books (Dongui Bogam and Compendium of Materia Medica).
    Furthermore, ancient Chinese and Japanese books also mention snail as a beneficial ingredient used for nourishment and treatment.
    We also added the premium Wow Drink Plus and Bongchu Drink Plus that contain galangal, known as Thailand’s ginseng, to provide customers with a wide array of options.

    In making a health drink, the most important factors are the ingredients and their amounts and the brewing method. For the technology concerning these, our food company has acquired a patent. As such, our company has sold the largest number of snail extracts in the Korean open market.

    Our health pills are manufactured in six themes that foster good health through food.
    For this product, long-term research has been conducted in collaboration with experts from various fields.
    As a part of this research, we registered patents and our products to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to increase functionality and safety.
    The Himchanmaru Health Pill Series, which allows customers to choose the theme based on his/her health condition, is manufactured at a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)-registered facility.

  • Reliable Health Food Containing Nature’s Benefits

    When making health food, what matters are the ingredients and their qualities and the method. Accordingly, our food company owns patent rights for such factors.
    As a result, our company has sold the highest number of snail extracts in the Korean open market. Furthermore, all of Himchanmaru’s products only contain clean water and fresh ingredients.

    Many companies use additives to improve appearances, save costs, or enhance the flavors.
    Meanwhile, Himchanmaru only contains all-natural ingredients without additives because we believe that true health food should be that way.

    Although our products are good for the body, they are not health functional food or for medicinal purposes.
    Our products belong to the general food category. The HS-code for our health pills is 210690, and the HS-code for our health drinks is 220299. (HS-Code is a product code used in trade.)
