Best By Date
"Best By" Date - FAQs
What is the “Best By” date that is printed on all Tree for Life’ dietary supplements?
The Best By date refers to the date recommended that you use the product by for best physical and/or sensory quality. It is not an expiration date but rather the date by which Tree for Life recommends consumption. If Best By date is July then last day in July would be the date product should be used by!
If a product is past the Best By date, does this mean that I shouldn’t consume the product?
Not necessarily. Although the product is past our recommended consumption date, if it still maintains good sensory and quality characteristics, you may decide to continue consumption. Your decision should depend on several factors, including how the product has been stored in your home and whether or not the product is discolored, rancid, or noticeably changed. For example, if the product was refrigerated, or kept in a cool dry place, and looks and smells normal this may allow for consumption after the Best Buy date. If any signs of degradation are evident it’s best to discard the product. The best by date is the last day of that month listed.
****Please no we never send out a product with a Best by Date less than 2 months of the purchase month!
How should I best store my products?
Always refer to the product label first for any special storage conditions. Generally speaking, dietary supplements are foods and should be stored like foods. Cool, dry conditions are best; and refrigeration can extend product life. Hot and/or humid conditions, such as those found in bathrooms and kitchens, may shorten product life.
What if I open and close the bottle?
The Best By date takes into account normal daily usage. Recommended best practices are to open the bottle, remove the exact amount of product you wish to consume or what has been suggested and then close the lid tightly.
