We manufacture probiotics in form of capsules, capsule in capsule, sachets, sachet in sachet, tablets, lozenges, dry syrup and latest development is that of probiotic drops.

We have access to more than 100 probiotic strains including some very well documented probiotic formulations made from Japan through our licensing. This probiotic formulation is now among the top 3 probiotic product in many countries including India also. The product works in a novel synbiotic way and the mechanism of action, clinical data, stability and efficacy is well proven in multi-centric trials across the globe with many of these studies published in World Journal of Gastroenterology, European journal of Gastroenterology, Indian Peadiatric journal and several others. The product is designed for harsh climatic conditions making it stable upto the end of shelf life.

Our dedicated Probiotic facility is geared up to handle tricky microbes as well. For e.g., We are currently handling and manufacturing probiotic strains which are very sensitive to humidity and often due to nature of the strain, its efficacy is lost during production processes. After months of R&D work, we have been able to set up several process control measures which are “Probiotic friendly” which help these microbes to go through the entire chain of production without loosing its efficacy, so that we are able to “ensure life until end of shelf life”. Our corporate policy is to ensure delivery of probiotic counts as per the label claim till the end of shelf life. In the manufacturing process we treat Probiotics as Drugs in India and maintain ICH Zone IV guidelines and our plant is certified by of WHO GMP and is ISO 9001 compliant as well in our manufacturing setup.

The above policy along with consistent production processes under strict supervision on humidity, thermal parameters and other steps assists us in ensuring viable and stable strain quality batch after batch.
