Our Process from Seed to Medicine

Our high-quality medicines are produced from natural raw materials. Bionorica has developed its own patented production processes to ensure consistency in the production of high-quality herbal remedies. To achieve the best quality in our phytotherapeutics, we govern and regulate the cultivation, harvesting and extraction of active ingredients from plants.

Our cultivating areas are based in different countries including Majorca where we grow our own plants. In addition to this, we have long-term contracts with farmers for example in Germany, Austria, France and Hungary where our standardized procedures are followed to achieve consistency and quality in production.

Our Top Priority is Research

Besides our own research facility, we work with approx. than 500 universities, institutes and clinics to produce high-quality herbal medicines. With our wide research network, we strive to decode the healing power of nature. We continue to improve our products and develop new plant remedies.

In addition to our current therapeutic areas, we aim at expanding our research into other areas including obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome (a disease caused by permanent over-nutrition and lack of exercise), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and chronic inflammatory bowel disease among others.

With our commitment to researching the microbiome, we are entering uncharted territory. But our evidence-based herbal remedies could also be an opportunity to combat increasing antibiotic resistance. We are devoting ourselves to these exciting fields of research intensively.

The Bionorica Group has several other independent subsidiaries such as Phytoneering Extract Solutions GmbH in Germany, Bionorica research GmbH in Austria and Bionorica extracts S.L. in Spain.
