How does FERACCRU® work?


FERACCRU® is different from other oral iron treatments1

  • FERACCRU® contains the ferric form of iron (Fe3+)1
  • FERACCRU® is a stable complex; ferric iron is tightly bound to three maltol molecules (a naturally-occurring sugar derivative)1,2
  • Unlike oral ferrous (Fe2+) salts, the Fe3+ in FERACCRU® remains tightly bound to maltol until the point of iron absorption1,2,3,4
