Capsules and tablets are so last year in supplements

Time was, health supplements came in a compressed tablet or a two-piece capsule. Today's supplements offer something for everyone.

Some consumers like the elderly or youths have difficulty swallowing. Others have flat pill fatigue. Today's nutrient makers have options to get nutrients into the body where they can do good. See what's new with:

* Hero Nutritionals, which pioneered the new format for children but also is popular with adults. 

* Soft Gel Technologies, which can boost bioavailability and improve uptake with its eponymous system. 

* Superior Source, which makes pills that melt in your mouth, not in your hands.
