  • How is Feramax® supplied?

    Feramax® 150 is available in a bottle of 100 capsules or carton of 30 capsules.
    Feramax® Powder is available in an 83 g bottle.

  • What is Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150?

    Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150 is an oral iron supplement formulated with polydextrose in a stable complex. It is manufactured by a specialized process whereby the iron is coated with polydextrose (starches/sugars). This coating allows the iron to pass through the stomach relatively intact where it is absorbed through the small intestine and is then delivered to the bloodstream.

    • It is a dark brown powder which, when dissolved in water forms a very dark brown solution.

    • It is virtually tasteless and odorless.

    • It is an organic complex and contains no free ions, also described as being non-ionic.

    • Due to the polysaccharide coating (matrix) it is electrically neutral.

  • What conditions/pathologies are at risk for iron deficiency?

    During pregnancy
    Menstruating girls and women
    Pre-term infants and children
    Iron deficient anemia
    Hemodialysis
    Post-gastric bypass or bariatric surgery
    Hookworm; intestinal parasites

  • Is Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150 the only polydextrose-iron complex (PDIC) in Canada?

    Yes! Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150 is the only polydextrose-iron complex (PDIC) in Canada.

    Feramax® is known for innovation in iron therapy, and as reliable partners to HCPs in the management of Iron Deficiency. First to market with a vegan-certified capsule, and first to market with a water-soluble powder.

    Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150 is manufactured in North America, in a US FDA and Health Canada- approved facility.

  • How is Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150 different from other iron supplements?

    Most iron supplements are ferrous (iron) salts. Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150 is a polydextrose-iron complex. This formulation provides a well tolerated high-dosage of elemental iron. It is also the only iron supplement that is Vegan Certified.

  • What are the properties of Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150?

    Feramax® Pd Therapeutic 150 is positively charged and soluble at pH < 4.0. This solubility at low pH may be associated with improved absorption.
    X-ray diffraction analysis shows that polysaccharide-iron complexes have a ferrihydrite (β-FeOOH) structure that closely resembles the structure of ferritin, the natural intracellular protein that binds iron in duodenal cells.

    The fact that the polydextrose-iron complex closely resembles endogenous carriers of iron could account for its high bioavailability and reduced side effects.
