I have an up till now unopened bottle of R dihydro lipoic acid from my vitamin drawer that says on the label "for optimal potency use by 5/09" . Is there any potency left by 12/11?    Is it still worth taking?

It smells strongly. Other ingredients are MCT oil, gelatin,glycerin,water, soy-lecithin,vitamin E, silicon dioxide,rosemary extract,ascorbyl palmitate,carob

My concern is does it break down or leak while in my storage drawer (dark and cool) to become something not good for you.

Thanks!

Oil-based products become rancid and are best used before the optimal potency date.  It would be best to discard this supplement.
