Bone/ Muscle/Teeth Health
Max Biocare’s Auscalmax aids healthy bone development, growth and building, helps to enhance bone strength as well as healthy teeth and muscle function. Our delicious strawberry and vanilla flavoured chewable capsules contain calcium, vitamin D3 & K2, using a unique microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) sourced from 100% BSE-free, clean Australian bovine sources. MCHA is the closest form of calcium to mature bone, containing calcium and phosphorus at the same ratios, along with bone supporting trace elements in an absorbable matrix.
Auscalmax features a proprietary form of vitamin K2 (MenaQ7®) that is the only clinically proven vitamin K2. MenaQ7® functions to lock calcium into the bone matrix, while D3 assists with transporting calcium from digestion, to support healthy bones.

I can’t swallow a capsule/tablet, but I want to take calcium for bone growth, development and strength. Is Auscalmax suitable?
Auscalmax capsules are chewable, making them perfect for anyone who has difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules (e.g dysphagia). Alternatively, capsules may be pierced with a toothpick or fork and the contents squeezed directly into the mouth, onto a spoon or onto food. The chewable capsules are a tasty vanilla and strawberry flavour, so taking your daily calcium will be a pleasure!
I don’t eat dairy and I’m worried that I am not getting enough calcium. Should I take Auscalmax?
If you don’t eat many calcium containing foods daily (dairy, green vegetables and sesame seeds/tahini) you may be at risk of calcium insufficiency and in need of a calcium supplement, particularly if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or of advancing age, when calcium demand is higher. Auscalmax provides 200 mg of total calcium per capsule, allowing you to adjust how many capsules you take to what you actually need depending on your dietary intake.
Why does Auscalmax contain Vitamin K2?
Vitamin K2 is involved in a special calcium storage process inside your bones. After the calcium is absorbed into the bloodstream, vitamin K helps deposit it inside the mineral (solid part) of bone.
