Check the expiration date on label.

I have to admit that I forget to look at the date stamp. This isn't good as I take medicines that have expired and have no effectiveness. I just went through everything and will make sure I check this year.

I have to be diligent about caring for myself. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS is a great way for me to keep focused. Day 1 is July 1, 2017. Build habits to produce success. Most of these habits I have at least tried before but did not sustain. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.

I would think that they are well past their use-by date and would discard them. The bottle should have the expiry date stamped on the label. That date is also assuming that they are being kept in optimal conditions re light and temperature. If they are kept outside of those recommendations, then they would also lose effectiveness.

The bottle expired in 2006? Definitely past its prime and I would be tossing.

Hi,

I would go by whatever date they stamped on the bottle to be safe.

I just opened a saved bottle of B-complex. They were all stuck together. 2006 was the date!

I suppose different vitamins have different shelf lives.

Thanks, chris
