Time release vitamins on a per nutrient basis
Different vitamins in a vitamin pill are cleared at different velocities, say 2 hours for vitamin C, 6 hours for B vitamins, weeks for vitamin D; Have each nutrient be made time release so you get vitamin C all day, as well as B, etc.
Theoretically at least, vitamins (arguably) have effect when they are still circulating at your bloodstream. Some vitamins are cleared rapidly. Vitamin C might be 2 hours, and some B vitamins 4-6 hours. Each of the different nutrients could be formularized as having a different release profile, then
combined into one steady state pill.
As a powder they could add this to breakfast cereals and petfood as well.
