Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex (Vifor's specification)
Imitates the natural iron absorption mechanism.
Iron that meets the needs of all age groups through;
|Safety (no GI upsets & does not cause teeth staining)|
|Tolerability (97% compliance rate)|
|Efficacy (comparable with FS)|
|Palatability (original Swiss quality chocolate flavor)|
1 ml of syrup contains 10mg and 1ml of drops contains 50mg iron as Iron(III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex.
The iron in Maltofer® exists as Iron(III) Hydroxide Complex, where individual particles are embedded into a carbohydrate polymer (polymaltose). This prevents the iron from causing any harm in the gastrointestinal system. This protection inhibits interaction of the iron with food. Moreover, it ensures the bioavailability of the iron. The structure of IPC is similar to ferritin, the naturally occurring iron storage protein. Due to this similarity, iron is absorbed through natural mechanism. IPC has no pro-oxidative properties such as there are with bivalent iron salts.
