Do Liquid Vitamins Need to Be Refrigerated?

Taking vitamins is an effective means of improving your health and wellness. It's also important that you know how to store your vitamins so that they remain healthy and potent for your needs. Here are the top seven questions and answers about how you should correctly store your Nuts About Health (NAH!) liquid vitamins for women.

1. Should I Refrigerate My Vitamins?

Vitamins differ in how they should be stored depending on their ingredients and what form they come in. For example, most pill vitamins should be kept in a cool, dry place, not a cold place like a fridge. However, some vitamins do benefit from being refrigerated.

For example, we suggest you refrigerate your NAH! liquid vitamins after opening them. Refrigerating your liquid vitamins will help them maintain their freshness and potency.

Do not change how you store your other vitamins, supplements, and medications. Their storage instructions might not recommend refrigeration; always follow the package directions for how to keep the vitamins.

2. Where is the Best Place to Store My Liquid Vitamins?

There are a few different places you can store your liquid vitamins. The best place for the vitamin will depend on whether you have opened it or not.

Before-Opening Storage

After purchasing your liquid vitamins, store them in a cool, dry place until you are ready to open the packaging. Ensure you note the expiration date, so you do not keep your liquid vitamins in storage after their “use by” date. If the vitamins expire before you use them, you should dispose of them.

After-Opening Storage

Once you break the seal on your liquid vitamins, follow the bottle’s instructions on storing them effectively. NAH! recommends storing your liquid vitamins in the refrigerator in their original container.

The best place to store your liquid vitamins in the refrigerator is somewhere you know they won’t accidentally freeze. Most people choose to keep their liquid vitamins in their refrigerator door. The door will not cool the vitamins to the point they accidentally freeze, and it’s the most easily accessible point inside the fridge.

Some women have small refrigerators for makeup, medicine, and other health items in their bathrooms. If you have a small refrigerator, you can choose to store your liquid vitamins in it so long as the fridge remains running and doesn’t cycle off after a specific time.

Safe Storage Options

One of the most important things to remember when choosing where to store your liquid vitamins is to keep them in a safe location. If you have children or anyone else in your household who should not have access to the vitamins, make sure they are out of reach.

Young children can open fridge doors. If you choose to store your liquid vitamins in the fridge door, make sure it’s someplace high in the door so any curious child does not mistake them for a snack. Ingesting pills can have negative effects on any body that does not need those pills, especially young and small bodies.

3. Can I Freeze My Liquid Vitamins?

While some vitamins hold their integrity when frozen, we do not recommend that you freeze your liquid vitamins. For the best care, we recommend keeping your NAH! liquid vitamins in a cool, dry place until you open the package. Once open, refrigerate your vitamins, do not freeze them.

In the cold winter months, the delivery of your liquid vitamins can freeze if they are left outside in freezing conditions. Let the liquid vitamins thaw on the counter. Do not try to heat them. Your liquid vitamins will still have potency. You can keep the vitamins at room temperature until you are ready to use them.

4. What Happens if My Liquid Vitamins Get Hot?

Almost all vitamins, supplements, and medications have instructions to keep refrigerated or in a cool, dry place. Recommended room temperature before needing refrigeration is between 59 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do not heat your vitamins or keep them somewhere they would be exposed to a temperature higher than 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Vitamins will lose their potency and degrade faster when exposed to higher temperatures.

If you order NAH! liquid vitamins for delivery during the hot summer months, we recommend that you bring them inside as soon as possible. If needed, you can set up the delivery to your work or hold them at the post office, so they do not sit out in the heat for too long.

5. What Happens if I Don't Store My Vitamins Correctly?

If you store your vitamins with high exposure to heat, light, or air, it could mean your vitamins are stored improperly. Follow package directions for storing them and keep your vitamins in their original container to keep them stored correctly.

Your vitamins can lose their potency if they are stored incorrectly. Vitamins that lose their strength are not dangerous; however, they may not have the effect you expect because they are not as strong as intended. Keep your NAH! liquid vitamins stored in the refrigerator after you open them to get the most health benefits from the vitamins.

6. How Long Do Liquid Vitamins Last?

Vitamins last for a different amount of time, based on several factors including which form you use, when you opened them, whether or not they were stored correctly, and their expiration date.

NAH! liquid vitamins come in two quantity-sizes. The smaller size is a 32-day supply, and the larger size is a 64-day supply. Each bottle has a lot number and a “best by” date marked clearly on the label.

Take the daily recommended dose of vitamins every day. Your vitamins will last for a maximum of 32 or 64 days, depending on which size bottle you purchase. Use your NAH! liquid vitamins before the “best by” date for the best results.

7. Should I Transfer My Vitamins to a New Container?

Many people want to condense the number of containers they need if they take more than one vitamin or supplement. Condensing bottles might save space after some of the vitamins have been consumed; however, we do not recommend transferring vitamins out of their original container.

We recommend keeping your NAH! liquid vitamins in their original container for maximum potency and protection. The dark bottle your vitamins come in blocks light from affecting the strength of the vitamins. If you transfer your liquid vitamins to a new container, the potency could lessen if the vitamins get continuously exposed to light.

Do not combine two bottles of the same vitamin. You should not mix the vitamins to save space because they likely come from different lot numbers and could have separate “best by” dates.

If you travel and need to take a small portion of liquid vitamins with you for use during your trip, we recommend you transfer only the required amount of vitamins to a new container. It is best to transfer your vitamins to a dark, air-tight container to keep out air and light.
