Bluebonnet Nutrition, Early Promise, Prenatal, Gentle Multiple, 120 Caplets4 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.

Since expecting mom's often suffer from morning sickness and GI distress, Bluebonnet is proud to announce the arrival of Early Promise Prenatal Gentle Multiple Caplets, a truly gentle formula that provides responsible levels of micronutrients (vitamins, mineral and specialty nutrients) based on what the scientific community has agreed as optimum for pregnant and nursing women. This gentle, scientific formula provides at least 100% of all the essential vitamins for pregnant/lactating women from sources known to be gentle on mom's sensitive GI as well as providing nearly 100% of all the essential macro- and microminerals. Although calcium and magnesium are provided in this formula under the recommended daily value (30% and 44% of the DV for pregnant/lactating women, respectively), they are provided in a 2:1 ratio and at potency levels that cover the dietary gaps in the typical American diet. Available in easy-to-swallow caplets for maximum assimilation and absorption.
As a dietary supplement, take two caplets once daily, preferably with a meal or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Vegetable cellulose, stearic acid, vegetable magnesium stearate, vegetable beet glaze.
Free of milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts and wheat.
Also free of yeast, gluten, barley, sodium and sugar.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I did lots of research on different prenatal vitamins and companies, and these are the best I have found. They have a good combination of vitamins and minerals, (no mega-doses, especially of vitamin A, which for some reason too many prenatals have), and also include a good amount of choline, which is important for the baby's brain development and is lacking in many formulas. I also emailed Bluebonnet and customer service was great, they guaranteed that they send the product (and many of their others) out for 3rd-party quality testing to ensure it is free from lead and other contaminants. These vitamins do not cause heartburn (at least not in addition to the normal pregnancy-related kind!) or constipation, and the price is very fair. I wish I had found these earlier in my pregnancy.
I bought these with plans to be pregnant in the near future. I had been using a "Woman's" vitamin before but decided that wasn't quite good enough anymore. With the old vitamins my urine would be bright yellow/orange for a few hours after ingesting. I know that is just excess vitamins being discarded by my body but it seems silly to be taking vitamins that are just passing through me. With these Bluebonnet vitamins I haven't experienced that at all. I have had no issues with my stomach which was a concern since I have a sensitive one. The pills are quite large. I plan to continue taking these along with a krill oil pill in the future.
