Expiration Dates

Every vitamin, brand or formula has its individual shelf life, so there is no all-encompassing answer to this question. While a vitamin ingredient may be technically potent after the expiration date, the fillers, stabilizers or other additives to the pill may be past their prime. Other vitamins are highly unstable and lose their value if exposed to light, heat or air. Always heed the expiration date stamped on the bottle of vitamins, minerals herbs and other supplements, just as you would a prescription or pharmaceutical.
