Generally active ingredient is the

ingredient in a pharmaceutical drug or a pesticide that is

biologically active. Active pharmaceutical ingredients is the

portion of any drug, which are active. Certain Active

Pharmaceutical Ingredients are unknown and hence require

additional substances, which can work in conjunction with the

API to produce the required medicinal effect.

The API is one of the prime

components of the drug. It is added with other non active substance

to form drug or tablets.Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients are the

chemically active substance, which is meant to produce the desired

effect in the body.
