swallowing vitamins in cellulose capsule
I need to take vitamin supplements that are contained in cellulose capsules.
I have a problem swallowing the capsules with just water.
Are there other ways to take the capsules without compromising their content/ effect?
Is opening the capsule and mixing it into fruit juice an option?

With most vitamins opening of the capsules should be fine. Otherwise trya gel-filled capsule and empty the content into some liquid
