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 PLUS®. This new reference contains highly assimilable turmeric, 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.
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®.
