Pharmaceutical ingredients from Elementis Pharma

Too much stomach acid often leads to heartburn or abdominal pain. In such cases, the antacids from Nordmann partner Elementis Pharma help! With active ingredients based on
aluminum or magnesium compounds, acids are reduced sustainably to actively prevent stomach upsets. Elementis’s product portfolio comprises a wide range of aluminum and magnesium hydroxides, magaldrate, hydrotalcite, dihydroxy aluminum sodium carbonate (DASC) and aluminium phosphate. In addition, Elmentis Pharma also supplies sucralfate, a cytoprotective API . Sucralfate not only neutralizes stomach acid but also builds up a protective layer on eroded stomach lining and lesions.

In 2017, the former and Ludwigshafen-based Antacida branch of BK Giulini GmbH was acquired by Elementis and renamed Elementis Pharma in 2019. Since the beginning of 2019, Nordmann has been responsible for handling the distribution of Elementis Pharma’s products in Germany, the Czech Republic and the Nordic countries.
