    Shelf life of vitamins
    What is the "shelf life" of vitamin E, also of "Omega-3" capsules?

    Is it, can it be useful or harmful to take same after expiry date of one year or more?

    Many thanks !

    shelf life of vitamins
    After the expiration dates on vitamins and/or minerals, they are not harmful but they are also not as potent. They lose some of their strength, which is the reason for the expiration date.
    Hope that helps!
