MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSyent Inc. (“BioSyent”, TSX Venture: RX) is pleased to announce that for the seventh consecutive year, FeraMAX® is the #1 recommended iron supplement brand in Canada based on a national survey of Canadian pharmacists and physicians.1

This annual survey was conducted by EnsembleIQ, Research, Insights and Innovation team and the following publications and websites: Pharmacy Practice + Business, The Medical Post, Profession Santé,, and ProfessionSanté.ca. This was an online survey fielded from October 2021 to January 2022 with Canadian retail pharmacists and Canadian physicians. 1,585 pharmacists (including 519 from Québec) and 552 physicians (including 225 from Québec) completed the surveys.

2021 marked the first full year following the launch of FeraMAX® Pd Therapeutic 150 in the patented Polydextrose-Iron Complex (“PDIC”) formulation in November 2020. In October 2021, FeraMAX® Pd Powder 15 for children was introduced based upon the same patented PDIC formulation.

The annual Survey on OTC Counselling and Recommendations is an important industry indicator which tracks pharmacist and physician counselling patterns for OTC products in Canada. Pharmacists and physicians play important roles in supporting patient care and product selection.

“This is a significant accomplishment in an environment where both healthcare professionals and patients have been navigating through a changing healthcare system,” commented René Goehrum, President and CEO of BioSyent. “We appreciate that FeraMAX® continues to be a trusted and reliable choice among Canadian healthcare professionals. We have always maintained a close partnership with these professionals through education programs and various patient initiatives. We will continue to support healthcare professionals in helping their patients take charge of their iron health through our existing and future pipeline of FeraMAX® products.”
