Where is the best place to store your supplements?
Supplements should be stored in a cool and dry place below 25C. The temperatures in Singapore these days can sizzle up to 34C so this becomes a problem for storing nutritional supplements at home. The enemy of your supplements is not only heat but humidity. It is also advisable to keep your supplements out of reach of children.
Some parts of the home are especially HOT like near windows, walls that get the afternoon sun, near the cooking stove and the car. Your oils and softgels like Omega 3, CoQ10, MCT, etc can potentially melt. Probiotics will lose potency when exposed to prolonged heat.
Some parts of the home are especially HUMID like in the bathrooms and where you cook or prepare food. The fridge may be cool but it can produce excessive condensation when members of the family continually open the fridge door. This is not ideal for supplements that are powders and cellulose capsules.
