Why We Don’t Use Expiration Dates

Starting in 2018, Nature’s Health will be transitioning to the use of date of manufacture as opposed to expiration dates on our supplements. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concludes that in order to have an expiration date it must be supported by stability testing. However, the FDA hasn’t reached consensus on what results shall be deemed acceptable. Therefore, Nature’s Health will comply with the more consistent regulation which is that the FDA does not require an expiration date on dietary supplements.

Nature’s Health will begin using dates of manufacture (born on date) this year. Dietary supplements are considered non-perishable products. Through our own testing and strict specifications, we have deemed the shelf life of herbal supplements that we offer can last up to five years. However, we recommend storing dietary supplements for only three years from the born on date to get the full potency of the dietary supplement.

Nature’s Health is fully committed to ensuring that only the highest quality products reach your hands. For this reason, we have decided to transition from using an expiration date to using a born on date. We appreciate your understanding on this topic. We will continue to improve our methods to assure excellence and that only the best supplements are distributed.

*Softgels are deemed to maintain their full potency for three years from the born on date. It is highly recommended to store under refrigeration not only to preserve, but extend shelf life.
