Frequently Asked Probiotic Question
If certain probiotics are supposed to be refrigerated, how are they shipped to maintain full potency?
The best quality probiotics are formulated to be shelf stable with a variety of measures taken to ensure stability at room temperature. However, it is definitely recommended that you do refrigerate after purchase. Going 2 weeks without refrigeration is not an issue for most probiotics. (which makes them ideal for travel as well!)
Probiotics that recommend refrigeration are being store in cold temperatures and immediately once they arrive at the Vitamart warehouse they again are put in the fridge.
Do not be concerned with the travel time between the manufacturers warehouse and the Vitamart warehouse, or the time between our warehouse and your home. Your probiotic is shelf stable and manufactured to withstand being at room temperature for days at a time.
