FeraMAX® FAQ

Frequently asked questions by patients and health care practitioners

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
