What are Antacid Actives?
Antacid actives are the active ingredients within a pharmaceutical formulation for the symptomatic treatment of gastritis and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease/heartburn). They work by neutralizing or adsorbing the acids in the stomach in order to relieve the irritation or burning pain of the gastric or esophageal mucosa.
SPI Pharma is the global leader in immediate-relief antacid actives.
We specialize in aluminum, magnesium, and calcium products, as well as preformulated solutions for the production of antacid suspensions and tablets. All facilities meet cGMP requirements for APIs and finished dosage forms (FDFs), also known as semi-finished drugs. With manufacturing locations in the US and France, SPI Pharma provides security of supply at the highest quality standards through dual sourcing. We work to exceed the expectations for each customer, every time.

Directly Compressible Calcium Powders
SPI Pharma also supplies directly compressible (DC) calcium carbonate products for swallow and chewable antacid tablets for high functionality and a superior mouthfeel. Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is a very reactive antacid active which is used alone or in combination with magnesium compounds.
