Q: Should I throw out vitamins if they expire or can I keep taking them for a certain amount of time after they expire?
A: This is a very good question that we have been asked countless times. The first thing to understand is what vitamins expiration dates actually mean. Most of us think of expiration dates as we think about milk that spoils and cannot be taken after that date (sometimes even a few days before.) Vitamins unlike milk do not spoil or go bad usually, however the potency is affected. The expiration date on a bottle tells you that based on various factors the manufactures have determined that that date is the last date that the vitamin will be at its full potency.
One of the great things about ordering from Kosher Vitamins is we try our hardest to ensure you get the freshest supplements with long expiration dates. To order visit us online at www.koshervitamins.com or call us at 800-645-1899.
