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.
