3D printing has a unique role in providing personalized supplements.

Multiply Labs "prints"targeted and time-specific supplements.

Nourish3d provides a subscription option of vegan, sugar-free, made-to-order "stacks."

One study found that Type 2 diabetes patients were prescribed 8.6 pills/day on average.

At least 45% of them fail to achieve glycemic control due to inadequate medical adherence.

Nonadherence can be improved with one simple 3D-printed medication combining different dosages.
