FeraMAX® vs. Triferexx®
Below we have provided a side by side comparison, comparing FeraMAX® vs. Triferexx®. The items marked in red are the differences between the two products.
Triferexx® has limited availability in the Canadian market. FeraMAX® is the perfect replacement/substitute product as it is the same molecule and dosage, at a lower price with more size options available.
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 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.
