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.
Emeraid has been scientifically designed for extremely high digestibility. Handle product carefully and avoid contamination, which can lead to bacterial overgrowth.
