More Information

  • Directions for Preparation and Use:
    - Maxamum must be consumed in conjunction with natural protein, fluid and other nutrients in quantities prescribed by a physician or dietitian to meet protein and general nutrient requirements
    - The recommended intake of Maxamum will vary depending on the age, bodyweight and medical condition of the individual
    - Intake should be adjusted to maintain normal growth and development
    - For accuracy, Maxamum should be weighed on a gram scale
    - The daily intake of Maxamum should be divided into equal portions and distributed throughout the day
