Alka-Seltzer, Gold, 36 Effervescent Tablets
By Alka-Seltzer13 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I don't like when they change boxes, design or bottles. This always means changed formula and is a red flag for me. This used to come in an orange box, now it's too easy to get confused at the store and grab the wrong one if you don't see "Gold" and you send someone else to pick it up for you. Please note: although iHerb lists "Anhydrous citric acid 1000 mg", this is nowhere on the box now! It used to be on the old box. Is this needed for health effects? I do not know. I take this when I wake up with brain pressure and it's a symptom for me of hepatic encephalopathy. I take this when I run out of other electrolytes such as coconut water (this is somewhat cheaper and lasts a bit longer) and need bubbles; it also alkalizes my system pretty fast. It works well for that. Would be good to know what happened with this mystery ingredient, why it's nowhere on the box and whether it's in the product or not. Also wondering if it comes from GMO corn. I've only taken 2 since I bought this. Otherwise it tastes the same it always did and works well for what it is. It is however not for pain relief.
I am very happy with this purchase. . I have lyme disease and this product helps tone down the inflammation which occurs during herheimer reactions and in general.
