Osteoporosis Treatment

Omya Calcium Carbonate is a high-purity bioavailable calcium. This makes it a sought-after ingredient for calcium supplementation formulas to treat e.g. osteoporosis, a significant public health issue in today’s aging population.



Omya high-purity Calcium Carbonates are used as active ingredients for neutralizing stomach acid in many antacid formulations currently on the market.

Wet & Dry Granulation
Omya mineral excipients drastically reduce or eliminate the amount of binder needed, thus significantly improving wet and dry granulation processes.
Fast Disintegration & ODTs
Omyapharm structured minerals produce granules and tablets that combine high mechanical strength and fast disintegration.
Direct Compressibility
Omyapharm enables high tensile strength tablets at lower compressive pressures compared to other excipients.
Carrier & Enhanced Drug Dissolution
Omyapharm products offer a high
drug loading capability and help
to improve drug dissolution.
