PharmExtracta SpA

PharmExtracta is a great innovator in the world of probiotics, active for more than 10 years in selecting peculiar bacterial strains that are endowed with very specific properties to develop unique probiotic solutions for Specific Bacterial Care.

PharmExtracta® introduces Precision Bacterial Care

PharmExtracta® was born from the experience of professionals in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical sector who share a great passion for scientific innovation and aim at finding new solutions for human health, in line with most recent discoveries. 

From the beginning of the project our R&D team developed and marketed more than 70 formulations, backed up by more than 40 patents, and published more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific studies confirming the scientific rationales behind products.

Starting from 2010s PharmExtracta® is particularly focused on launching new effective probiotics under the range called PrecisionBacterial Care.

In 2011 we were the first company in Europe to develop and launch Bactoblis®, a finished product containing the well-known Streptococcus salivarius K12, the first probiotic for the oral cavity that now boasts numerous studies all over the world.

Bactoblis® was then awarded at the Nutraingredients Awards as Finished Product of the Year in the category “Immune Support” in 2015.

More recently, in 2021, our probiotic formulation Crispact®, containing Lactobacillus crispatus M247 for women’s health, was selected asfinalist in CPhI Pharma Awards in the category “Excellence in Pharma: Finished Formulation”.

Our cornerstones of probiotics

When it comes to probiotics, PharmExtracta® chooses only well-characterized strains deposited in strain collections recognised as “International Depositary Authority” (IDA).

Before becoming PharmExtracta®’s products strains must prove

  • to be 100% safe for human consumption
  • not to confer antibiotic resistance
  • to survive stomach and bile acids
  • to adhere to epithelial cells of the target area

Moreover, our finished products are designed to maintain bacterial strains live and viable using

  • high-dose probiotic contents
  • specific packaging solutions
  • proper storage conditions

We strongly believe in precision probiotics able to provide specific health benefits. In this view, we launched several single-strain formulations that can be effectively used in the clinical practice.

The greatest strength of our products is their effectiveness that is validated clinical trials.
