Storing Supplements in a Humid Climate


#1

I'm moving to Malaysia shortly and am planning on bringing 4-6 months worth of supplements (pills and powders) with me. Should sealed products be ok in this kind of heat/humidity? Any tips on keeping things ok? Most labels say store away from heat/light/moisture, but when its 35 Cecilius and 85% humidity that might be a bit tough. Thanks.

The heat will cause the powder and pills to degrade over a few months even in sealed containers. I can not venture a guess as to how long it will take, but many of the products from Biotest take on a yellowish hue when they begin the degredation process. If you can, keep them in a refrigerator if you have access to one.
