Storing Vitamins 


The Claim: Always Store Vitamins in the Medicine Cabinet


THE FACTS The medicine cabinet may seem like an ideal place for keeping vitamins
and supplements. But research suggests otherwise.


In studies, scientists have found that the warm, moisture-rich conditions found
in most bathrooms tend to degrade vitamins and other supplements over time.
Researchers have found that this process, known as deliquescence, can reduce the
potency of vitamin B, vitamin C and other water-soluble supplements — even
rendering them useless. Airtight lids do not necessarily solve the problem,
since opening and closing them allows humidity and moisture to get in.


In a study published this year by food scientists at Purdue University,
researchers measured the stability of different vitamin C supplements in various
temperatures and levels of humidity. They showed signs of degradation above 80
percent humidity, a level of bathroom humidity that the steam from a hot shower
could produce.


Other studies have found similar effects on thiamin, vitamin B6 and other
water-soluble nutritional products exposed to humid environments.
Humidity levels can spike in kitchens as well.

For best results, try keeping vulnerable products — like multivitamins, children’s vitamins or powdered health products — in a cool, dry area with little humidity, like your bedroom. If your
vitamins soften or develop dark spots, it means they have already started
degrading and should probably be discarded.


THE BOTTOM LINE Storing vitamins in a medicine cabinet and other humid areas can
reduce their effectiveness.

新竹市1999專線昨天啟動,即日起將提供全年無休24小時線上諮詢解說,供市民諮詢及反應輿情,市府未來也將統整來電意見分析,供市政工作參考。

話務中心設於中正路中華電話辦公大樓內,有國、台、客、英、日等語言專才話務人員,24小時輪班服務,民眾以市話撥打1999專線,以一般市話費率計算,手機撥打每分鐘最高3.6元(依各電信業者費率計算)。

市府希望將1999變成民眾表達需求、反應疏漏及追蹤機關效率的管道與機制,讓1999成為市民的萬事通。
