I wondered about the potency of some natural supplements I have been taking so I did some research. Different vitamins seem to lose at a different rate. Solid ones seem to last longer than the liquid type. Six months seems to be the safest amount of time to keep vitamins after opening them. For instance, vitamin B-12 and folic acid lose about 10 percent after six months. Be sure to read the label for some will need to be refrigerated while others can be kept in a dry, cool and darkened place. In order to dispose of vitamins do not flush them down the toilet or just throw them in the trash. Put them in a plastic container and then cover them with kitty litter or coffee grounds. Put a lid on the container and then put it in a trash bag. Tie the top securely.

Yes. The rate at which they each work is also different . Each will have a definite amount of time before which they should be consumed and otherwise they should be disposed of in the way you have mentioned in the post. This is a good habit and better I say this is a good culture.
