After settling on your supplement routine, you want to make sure you get as much out of your products as possible. Not storing them properly at home and when on the go can mean the products lose their potency and can expire.

Keep these tips in mind to guarantee you get all the benefits your vitamins, minerals, essential oils, etc. have to offer.

Proper Storage


Where you choose to keep your supplements at home shouldn't just be for convenience, but to also protect the nutrients within. Follow these guidelines for maximum benefit:

  • All supplements should be kept out of direct sunlight, which can cause nutrient breakdown.
  • Choose bottles or storage containers that are completely opaque or made of dark glass to further block out sunlight.
  • Keep lids tightly sealed at all times to keep out moisture and germs.
  • Make sure scoops for powders are completely dry before storing within the tub.
  • Don't store supplements (or any health and beauty items) in the bathroom or any very humid room, as the excess moisture promotes the growth of bacteria.
  • Any supplement kept in the fridge should be stored in the door or to the front of the fridge -- when pushed to the back, you risk freezing.
  • Probiotics should be refrigerated to protect the live bacteria within. However, most will be OK for a little while at room temperature, especially those labeled "shelf stable."
  • Store fish oils in the fridge to reduce odor and fishy taste while also preventing spoilage.
  • Avoid extreme heat or cold.
  • Make sure all supplements stay out of reach of children, for whom large doses of vitamins and minerals can be toxic.

While it's important to pay attention to expiration dates, a supplement won't become toxic upon the expiration date, rather, the supplement's potency will not be the same as listed in the nutrition facts. Most supplements can be used for a few months beyond their date before any major changes in potency occur. Beyond that, it's best to discard them.

Traveling With Supplements


Staying on your regular supplement routine when traveling will help balance your diet (which may be more indulgent when you're away from home) and keep your immune system on alert. Now that you understand the best way to store your supplements at home, it's time to talk about what to do when you travel. Here are some important things to remember:

  • Keep your supplements in tightly sealed containers if you aren't bringing their original packaging.
  • Store supplements in your handbag, backpack or carry-on baggage so you can better control the temperature they're exposed to. 
  • Always bring along a water bottle so you don't miss a dose.
  • Make sure to properly label containers with proper dosage to avoid any mistakes.
  • Keep a list of all supplements (and medications you take) with your identification and travel documents in case you become ill while traveling.
