Multiply Labs has created 3D-printed nutritional supplements that lets consumers customize their supplements to better fit their needs and lifestyle.

With the 3D-printed supplement consumers will be able to create personalized vitamin supplements, rather than taking various other supplements to try and achieve the right balance for their dietary needs. Multiply Labs can print personalized capsules on demand easily because it uses 3D printing. The company 3D prints each capsule to the customer's specifications. Clients can choose the individual supplements they want, or let the system design a pill based on the health metrics they provide. The ingredient offerings include caffeine, amino acids and various minerals and vitamins.

Multiply Labs can also produce timed release of the ingredients by compartmentalizing the 3D printed pills. An example would be a client looking for a breakfast supplement with a caffeine kick later on in the day, they could order a capsule that has a burst of nutrients when taken in the morning and deliver caffeine in the afternoon.
