Storage, Preparation and Administration of Emeraid


Upon arrival, store Emeraid in a cool, dry space, and refrigerate powder after opening. Emeraid has an 18-month shelf life from the time of production, and should be used within 9 months after opening.

Storage of an unopened container of Emeraid in the freezer can extend shelf life by up to a year. Taking Emeraid in and out of the freezer for normal use does not extend shelf life.
