TRIFEREXX 150 is a polysaccharide-iron complex used in the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anemia and nutritional megaloblastic anemia. Iron deficiency means you have low Iron levels in your blood. Most oral iron products are ionic and are broken down in the stomach and cause 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 it coming in contact with the stomach. Its unique formulation reduces side effects.
Non-ionic in the mouth, it is therefore completely tasteless and does not stain teeth. Many oral iron supplements should be taken on an empty stomach but this increases the likelihood of adverse effects. Due to its formulation and the way it is absorbed, Triferexx can be given with or without food. But take as directed by physician.

FUNCTIONS AND BENEFITS OF IRON
Iron has three main functions in the body:
- Assistance in transporting and storing oxygen
- Assistance in energy production and cell respiration
- Boosting the immune system by helping produce white blood cells to fight bacteria
Iron requirements go up significantly when you're pregnant. During pregnancy, your blood volume increases by about 50 percent. And pregnant women require greater amounts of it, in order to meet the needs of the baby and placenta — and the mother herself! A lot of blood is lost during 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 lose even more! Since iron travels through the blood, some of it is lost during menstrual period.
SOURCES OF IRON
- Red meats
- Bran cereals
- Kidney beans
Pregnant women are more likely to be recommended to increase the amount of iron nutrition they're taking, 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 IN KIDNEY DISEASE
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 need a prescription for it.
