It is indicated for the treatment and prevention of iron-deficiency anemia. It is a non-ionic polysaccharide iron-complex formulation which allows the iron to pass through the stomach in an intact form thus reducing the gastrointestinal side effects experienced with other iron formulations.

Fermamx has been designated as the number one recommended iron supplement brand in a national survey of Canadian physicians and pharmacists for the second consecutive year. This iron formulation has very few gastrointestinal side effects as compared to other iron supplements. A Vegan certified formulation has been introduced and provides an iron therapy option for vegans, vegetarians, and patients with other dietary restrictions. Pleasant tasting, the dissolvable powder is available for pediatric patients.
