Triferexx 150 is a high potency (150mg elemental iron per dose) oral iron supplement. These iron capsules allow for just once a day dosing while minimizing side effects that other oral iron supplements, such as, ferrous salts, may cause. Triferexx 150 avoids or reduces these common oral iron supplement side effects:
TRIFEREXX 150 is a polysaccharide-iron complex used in the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anemia, and nutritional megaloblastic anemia. Iron deficiency means that you have low Iron levels in your blood. Most oral iron products are ionic and are broken down in the stomach causing unwanted side effects like constipation. TRIFERREX 150 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. Its unique formulation reduces side effects.
It is non-ionic in the mouth and therefore completely tasteless and does not stain teeth. Many oral iron supplements should be taken on an empty stomach however this increases the likelihood of adverse effects. Due to its formulation and how it is absorbed, Triferexx can be given with or without food. Take as directed by physician.
Iron is used by the body to create red blood cells. When iron counts are low, the body can begin to feel fatigued. Iron is a key component to energy levels.

Iron has three main functions in the body:
Your iron requirements go up significantly when you're pregnant. During pregnancy, your blood volume increases by about 50 percent. Pregnant women require a greater amount of iron because of this expanded red blood cell volume, to meet the needs of the baby and placenta and the mother herself. Much blood is lost at delivery which makes it important to take even more iron during the second and third trimesters.
During a woman's years of menstruation, iron needs are a special nutritional concern. On an average, women lose about ¼ cup of blood at each menstruation cycle, women with heavier flow may even lose more. Since iron travels through the blood, some of it is lost during menstrual period.
Pregnant women are more likely to be recommended to increase the amount of iron nutrition they're taking in with an iron supplement to maximize the body's absorption of this mineral. ONLY 15% of the iron we consume is absorbed by our bodies. If you consume 15mg of iron per day, your body is actually only absorbing about 2.25 mg of iron.
Anemia is common in people with kidney disease. Healthy kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin, or EPO which stimulates the bone marrow to produce the proper number of red blood cells needed to carry oxygen to vital organs. Diseased kidneys often don't make enough EPO. As a result, the bone marrow makes fewer red blood cells.
Ask your physician to prescribe TRIFEREXX for you, although you do not require a prescription for Triferexx.
Some drug plans cover oral iron supplements so contact your insurance company and enquire about coverage.
