Should I Leave The Desiccant Pack in my Vitamin Bottle?

You may have noticed a small cylindrical canister or flat paper packet in your vitamin bottle that has a warning not to eat it. This is a desiccant pack and is put there to absorb moisture that is detrimental to your precious supplements. Moisture can destroy the chemical integrity of your supplements making them inactive.

Therefore you should keep the desiccant pack in the vitamin container.

How to Choose a Reliable Nutritional Supplement Supplier

It is estimated that 65% of adults take some form of nutritional supplement. The consumer assumes that the supplements they are taking are safe and effective and contain what the label states. However recent random sampling by certain consumer groups have found that in many cases the supplements didn’t contain the full amount or dangerously elevated amounts of certain ingredients. Worse yet some samples were contaminated with such things as lead and prescription drugs.
