We are a science-based company located in Gran Canaria, Spain. We identify, develop, and produce high quality active botanical ingredients for the nutraceutical industry. Since 1997 our standardized extracts and novel, patented ingredients improve people's quality of life through nutrition. Our R&D team includes 5 scientists with PhD's and they are able to deliver rapid results in our state of the art laboratories that are specifically designed to develop new products, evaluate new applications, assess their safety, and ensure superior quality.

Nektium was born out of two scientists and friends’ shared passion for the phytochemistry and pharmacology of little known medicinal plants and their applications in health and wellness. Today we are still defined by our commitment to relationships, health and innovation.

Our founders, Dr. Miguel Jiménez and Dr. Zakir Ramazanov, originally made extracts of traditional medicinal plants like Rhodiola rosea and Rhaponticum carthamoides from Russia and the Caucasian regions, where Dr. Ramazanov was from. We have since expanded our product offering to a wide variety of standardized extracts and unique branded ingredients.

Zynamite® is Nektium’s latest innovation for caffeine replacement that improves physical and mental energy and focus. It is ideal for sports products and clinical studies proved that it has none of the side effects of caffeine like anxiety or jitters.

We are launching Zynamite at Vitafoods Europe 15 - 17 May, Geneva.

Join us at stand A40 to experience Zynamite for yourself and learn more about the origin of this powerful new ingredient.

We are looking forward to welcoming you there!
