I cannot swallow Flexofytol® capsules, can I pierce them and/ or dilute their contents in water?
It is inadvisable to pierce the Flexofytol capsules as their contents can cause cast-off (stubborn) stains.
If you cannot swallow the capsules with large amounts of water, you can opt for Flexofytol FORTE.
This new reference contains bioactive extracts of turmeric and Boswellia serrata and vitamin D, and comes in tablet form.
It is possible to cut the tablets in 2 or 3 using a tablet cutter available in pharmacies, to crush it or chew it.
Flexofytol PLUS® contains 72 mg of curcumin, does it mean that it is more dosed than Flexofytol® which contains only 42 mg of curcumin ?
No because it is the amount of assimilable curcumin (= bioavailable) that matters.
The bioavailability is equal for the 2 forms, which means that in terms of curcumin take a Flexofytol® capsule is equivalent to taking a tablet of Flexofytol PLUS®.
Should I stop taking vitamin D if I am taking Flexofytol PLUS® or Flexofytol FORTE® which contains vitamin D ?
The majority of patients are significantly deficient in vitamin D. There is therefore no contraindication to taking a vitamin D supplement together with Flexofytol PLUS® or Flexofytol FORTE®. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
