Due to my parsimonious nature, my bottles are actually years old. Does
Flourish have a shelf life?
Well, yes and no. You probably wouldn't get the full benefit of the
vitamins if you had a 10 year old bottle, but we formulate it to
remain stable for the duration of the typical retail distribution
cycle (i.e.3-5 years max depending on conditions). This is a very
popular product so I doubt you'd find anything older than a year out
there at the most.
Does it have to be refridgerated? I am too scared my Flourish will end up in
a steak marinade, so I have never chilled them. (Although I too could
probably benefit from some trace elements)
It does not have to be refrigerated, although that will of course
helps its longevity. If it has never been opened it does not require
refrigeration. Once opened there is a very, very small possibility of
mold growing, thus that is why we recommend refrigeration... although
we've considered removing this from the label as it results in more
questions about it then an any actual cases of mold growth
(personally I'm not aware of any).
Are there negative effects to overdosing (besides algae)?
No, although I suppose if you dumped an entire 250 mL bottle in a 10
gallon you might run into some metal toxicity issues (mainly
iron)...not that I think someone would do that but accidents
water calcium deficient. I hoping Dr. Morin will come out with Flourish
Calcium soon. (just kidding).
Try "Equilibrium", it will restore deficient levels of calcium.
