Overview

Maltofer is a new oral iron therapy for the treatment of dietary iron deficiency in adults and adolescents. Many people don't get enough iron from their diet, which can lead to low iron levels.

Maltofer is an oral iron therapy which is clinically proven to correct iron levels, with fewer and milder side effects compared to ferrous iron supplements. That means less constipation, less nausea and an effective dose of iron. It's the kind of iron deficiency treatment many have been waiting for.

Maltofer is now available in Australian pharmacies, with no prescription needed. Maltofer is manufactured in Switzerland and although it's a new iron treatment for Australians, Maltofer has been introduced into more than 80 countries around the globe.

Maltofer is available in a convenient 30 pack of tablets or as a pleasant tasting syrup (150ml).

Smarter iron absorption

Maltofer iron is absorbed by the body in an active and controlled manner. Maltofer's active ingredient, iron polymaltose, ensures your body only absorbs the iron that it needs when it is needed.

The benefits of being different

Controlled iron absorption has some distinct and clinically proven benefits. Studies have shown that patients taking Maltofer experience:

  • Fewer and milder side effects, such as constipation and nausea1, Reliable correction of iron levels
  • The convenience of taking iron with food
  • No interactions with most standard medications.(Although Maltofer is clinically proven to have few interactions with other drugs, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking Maltofer with other other medications)

    Fewer and milder side effects

    Most commonly used iron supplements contain ferrous salts (such as ferrous sulfate or ferrous fumerate). Ferrous salts are absorbed by the body in an uncontrolled manner which can lead to unwanted side effects such as constipation, bloating and nausea.

    In fact, these side effects from ferrous salts can be so frequent, that some people may avoid iron supplements for this reason.

    Maltofer is absorbed by the body differently, ensuring iron is delivered in a more controlled manner. Clinical trials with Maltofer have consistently shown significantly less side effects, such as nausea, constipation and diarrhoea, than in patients taking ferrous supplements.

    Taking Maltofer with food

    Even simple foods like, tea, coffee, chocolate and milk can interfere with the iron absorption of ferrous salts and as such, are generally recommended to be taken on an empty stomach.

    Maltofer on the other hand can be taken anytime with food and absorption of the iron will not be affected. In fact, studies have even demonstrated that iron absorption with Maltofer significantly increases when taken with food.

    High dose iron

    When taking an iron supplement, it is important to check the amount of elemental iron per dose.

    Many supplements containing iron have only small amounts of elemental iron per dose. Hence, your current iron supplement may not be delivering enough iron for your needs.

    Maltofer contains 100mg of elemental iron per dose, which provides an adequate amount of iron to correct iron levels when taken as directed.

    Suitable for use in pregnancy

    During pregnancy, the body's need for iron increases by as much as 10 fold. This kind of increase in iron cannot always be met by diet alone, necessitating the need for iron supplements.

    Globally, Maltofer has been recommended to correct iron levels in pregnant women for over 50 years. Clinical studies have shown Maltofer corrects iron deficiency in pregnant women with significantly less side effects, making it easier to restore iron levels.
