Phytochemicals, Alkaloids or APIs

Himachal Pharmaceuticals specializes in isolation of active principles from natural sources, through semi-synthesis. This results in the production of Phytochemicals which are the building blocks of many products. These Alkaloids or APIs are then sold to companies who either combine them with other ingredients or further process them to make allopathic products that you see on shelves at pharmacies and drug stores.

The Concise Oxford English Dictionary defines Phytochemicals as any of various biologically active compounds found in plants. It is a compound to obtain which plants are processed to extract a universally standardized ingredient, sold to clients who use it to make medicines which are then sold at drug stores.

The APIs manufactured by Himachal Pharmaceuticals are standardised as per internationally recognised pharmacopeias namely the USP, BP, IP etc.  These Alkaloids are then sold to agents, drug manufacturing companies or herbal pharmacies which use it as a raw material for their finished products.

Research and Development of new compounds and alkaloids is an ongoing process at Himachal Pharmaceuticals and we continue to add newer products to the list of products manufactured.
