Convenience for Consumers

On-the-go supplements for easy adherence, anywhere, anytime

 
 
 

As consumers become increasingly pressed for time, they need health-boosting supplements that keep up with their fast-paced lifestyles. They’re searching for supplements that offer portability, a desirable sensory experience, alignment with dietary preferences and ease-of-use to meet their needs wherever they are. Convenience is considered a driving force for the dietary supplements space, which explains why about 50% of people take an all-encompassing multivitamin.

To meet these needs, the dietary supplement industry is evolving to offer a variety of convenient on-the-go options, ranging from chewable tablets to candy-like gummies and powders that mix easily into water. In addition, manufacturers are helping to decrease the number of pills consumers take by combining multiple herbal and nutritional ingredients into one condensed supplement. For example, instead of offering individual supplements of elderberry, zinc and vitamin C to help boost immunity, manufacturers can combine these ingredients into one tablet for an easy-to-take immune-boosting solution. DuPont solutions can help in scenarios like this by enabling delivery of functional ingredients at the desired pace to the right place in the body while providing excellent consumer experience and taste.

Backed by a century of knowledge in the pharmaceutical industry, our team understands how to adapt and evolve in a fast-paced industry to deliver superior dietary supplements that generate a positive consumer experience every time. By utilizing high-quality, high-functioning ingredients, we can help produce convenient powders and tasty vegan gummies; or reduce pill size for improved swallowability and increase nutritional ingredients in soft capsules. With simple, on-the-go options, consumers can easily adhere to their supplement regimen while maintaining their healthy lifestyles and busy schedules.
