Hi,

Yes, calcium citrate malate is one of the best calcium supplements. It is water soluble and easily absorbed than other forms of calcium.

Shelcal is routinely used by clinicians. Tablet Shelcal contains Calcium carbonate 1250 mg along with vitamin D3 250 IU.

Sandoz again contains calcium carbonate. Easy to chew like chocolate.

You can try Tablet BONETUF. It contains calcium citrate malate 1140 mg, calcitriol 0.25 mcg, magnesium 100 mg, zinc 4 mg.

Hope this helps you.
