High quality supplements are a must-have for healthy living. However, some of them come in the form of pills that are either difficult to swallow or even impossible to swallow. So, just how large are Folexin pills? Let’s explore.
The Actual Size of Folexin Pills
The size of Folexin pills is 0.95 inches in length. That’s the same size as the Micronized creatine pills from ON.
To put that into context, a typical veg-capsule of the Folexin supplement is roughly the diameter of a quarter dollar coin. For those who don’t know what a “quarter” is – it is a twenty-five-cent coin that’s commonly used in USA. It has a diameter of 0.95 inches or roughly 24 millimeters.
Why So Large?
Well, the pills are not too large but some people wish they could be a tad smaller. So, why the size? Well, it all boils down to the quantities of ingredients used. The manufacturers of Folexin used ingredients in their raw form meaning significant quantities have to be used to meet the required dosage.
The Downsides of Swallowing Large Pills
Large pills come with a few user-experience downsides. Some of those include:
(1) Gag effect
(3) Difficulties swallowing
(4) Stomach cramps
