The Science of FeraMAX® 150
Most oral iron products are ionic and are broken down in the stomach causing unwanted side effects like CONSTIPATION.
New FeraMAX® 150mg has been developed to reduce those side effects commonly associated with other iron supplements.
FeraMAX® 150mg is a non-ionic formulation that coats the iron and allows it to be delivered to the bloodstream without coming in contact with the stomach.
This unique formulation reduces the side effects often experienced by patients when taking other iron supplements.

FeraMAX® 150 helps restore your iron levels to keep your body healthy while minimizing oral iron supplement side effects.
FeraMAX® 150 contains 150mg of elemental iron, the highest available in one dosage, therefore requires less frequent dosing. Contains 50% more ELEMENTAL IRON than ferrous fumerate (Palafer®¹) and 13.6 times more than Proferrin®².

Health Care Professional Testimonials
“I have been prescribing FeraMAX® to my patients. I have no concerns about the gastro-intestinal side effects and the compliance is very good. FeraMAX® is a good product for iron-replacement for patients with iron deficiency.”Dr. A. Kanjee MD.CCFP, Richmond Hill, ON
“A patient with a GI bleed in early April left with a HGB of 64, now his HGB is 130 and serum Iron of 600. He only had 4 doses of Eprex over 2 weeks and the rest was all because of FeraMAX.””Leona A. Dove, RN, BSCN, Humber River regional Hospital

“I have been on iron supplements for many years and have always had side effects, mostly constipation. Then about 1 year ago my doctor recommended FeraMAX® and my life is back to normal. I do not experience any of the side effects I had with the other iron supplements I tried. I think this is a great product and would recommend it to anyone that requires iron supplements.Flora B., Mississauga, ON
“FeraMAX was fabulous. No stomach upset, no constipation. Good energy level considering that I was post op for hip surgery.”Helen F., Burlington, ON
A few samples of feedback we have received from patients online:
“I have been taking Feramax for 6 months. In the first three months, my iron levels rose from 15 to 18. In the second three months, they rose from 18 to 22. My doctor wants me to keep taking it until my levels are in the 30’s, which at this rate will probably be another year! The negative side is the slow increase and the cost (it is almost $20 for a 30-day supply). The positive side is that I get absolutely no gastric problems from this stuff. I have tried all kinds of iron supplements and stopped taking them because of severe constipation and stomach pains. But Feramax causes me absolutely no problems.”
“I am on two iron supplements (capsules) per day (FeraMAX 150) I don’t mind it at all, usually the iron stuff makes me so sick, but this one is awesome. no sickness and no constipation!! $20 bucks for 30 pills, but I’d pay double as long as it makes me feel better.”
