Control Speed of Action

High-quality nutritional ingredients, released with absolute accuracy

 
 
 

When a consumer feels a stomachache coming on, they may reach for a ginger or peppermint capsule for immediate relief, while someone struggling with insomnia may opt for a melatonin tablet to sustain a good night’s sleep. Each dietary supplement requires a tailored mode of action to maximize the consumer benefit, whether that be immediate, sustained or delayed release action.

Today’s consumers want more than just an effective supplement to support a healthy lifestyle - they want to achieve that with fewer doses and superior tolerance. Traditionally, consumers need to take several immediate release tablets throughout the day to receive the recommended dosage of a dietary supplement. Utilizing innovative ingredients, manufacturers can design modified release formulations that offer complete control over the onset and duration of nutritional ingredient release. Today’s hectic world also calls for supplement products that can be consumed on-the-go. This is where chewable tablets and orally disintegrating tablets can shine since they can be consumed without water and provide quick action of the supplement ingredient.

To fully take advantage of extended release tablets and immediate release formulations, supplement manufacturers and brand owners need a partner who understands how to tailor the speed of nutritional ingredient release to maximize benefits and convenience for consumers.

Backed by science and decades of formulation experience, our team of global experts can help customize your formulations. Consider DuPont as your one-stop-shop for creating a variety of dosage forms with optimal controlled release that deliver higher quality and functional ingredients to your consumers at the perfect time, enhancing sensory experience and convenience.
