We can do something iron deficiency Is the most common and widespread nutritional disorder

Iron is the most abundant mineral on this planet, yet we often have problems with it.

We can do something about this.

The WHO defines iron deficiency as the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world and believes that one way to respond to the challenge of iron deficiency is increased intake of iron through food and supplements. (http://www.who.int/nutrition/topics/ida/en/)

There is a large need for well-tolerated and efficient iron supplements in the world

Virtually all oral preparations on the market are synthetic non-heme iron based which are notoriously low in both efficacy and tolerance.

Ferrous sulphate, Ferrous gluconate and Ferrous bis-glycinate, and even intravenously given iron all have drawbacks in practical dosage, price and potential side-effects.

MediTec Group is a Swedish company producing and marketing oral heme iron food supplements.

The division FerroCare handles product innovations, research, manufacturing and international marketing of the OptiFer® series of iron supplements.

MediTec FerroCare Division

MediTec Group was started in 1995 to develop supplemental products.

Our idea is to bring new high-quality iron products at real value for money to the world market.

The company has extensive experience in the production and marketing of iron food supplements.

Two kinds of iron

There are only two kinds of iron that we can use: heme iron from meat, poultry or fish and non-heme iron from vegetables, dairy products or chemically bonded iron in supplements.

MediTec International FairLife Group therefore offers the only natural alternative with organic hemoglobin as the source for iron.

Heme iron has been on the market extensively in Scandinavia since 1975 with literally millions of users and no serious side effects or cases of poisoning reported.

The OptiFer® line of supplements

Heme iron supplements have a considerably higher uptake and tolerance compared to any other form.

What does FairLife mean to us?

We strongly believe in equality and a fair chance for everyone, also in poor areas and difficult circumstances.

Iron deficiency is often accompanied by infectious diseases, so this is an important step on the road to better health globally.

This is also why we believe in big volumes before maximized profit.

There is not and will never be a shortage in product, together we can really make a difference in fighting anaemia and iron deficiency all over the world.
