How well can expiration dates be trusted consideering you store it a cool and dry place. The reason I ask is that I bought hydroxycut with ephedra about a year ago and I finally decided to use it and I could tell that it lost some of its potentcy. I have taken it before. I looked on the bottle and the expiration date read 06/05. Needless to say I was pissed. So I called Muscletech and they told me that it was impossible and that I should go see a doctor. So I then looked at the other supps that I have laying around and came across some 1ad and the expiration date read 06/05. How do I know if thats not going bad already. I then looked at UCP-1 and it says 06/05. My question is how did you come to that accessment. How accurate is it. Have you done any tests. Just curious not meant to flame.
