Carlson Labs, ACES, 200 Softgels
By Carlson Labs12 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.

Air pollution, tobacco smoke, ozone, radiation, dietary fats and heavy exercise can produce unstable substances in the body called free radicals. Research has established that excess free radicals can damage healthy cells.
ACES provides four natural antioxidants (vitamin A, C and E plus selenium) to help protect the body from the harmful effects of free radicals.
The sources of nutrients in ACES are chosen with care. Beta-Carotene (pro-Vitamin A) is derived from tiny plants, D. salina algae, which also supply minor amounts of other carotenoids such as alpha carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and lutein. Calcium ascorbate is a non-acidic form of Vitamin C which is gentle in the stomach. Vitamin E is 100% natural-source, the most biologically active form, from soy. Selenium is organically bound with an essential nutrient (methionine) to promote assimilation.
Take two soft gels daily at mealtime.
Sunflower oil, beeswax, lecithin (soybeans), palm fruit stearin, glyceryl monostearate. Soft Gel: Beef gelatin, glycerin, water, carob.
Wheat-free. Milk-free. Preservative-free. Yeast-free. Gluten-free.
Keep bottle tightly closed. Store away from heat and moisture.

iHerb Customer Reviews
We've been taking this for about ten years, as needed. We use it when we start to feel like we're getting a cold. It has the right combo of vitamins and minerals to combat infection, etc. because when you're getting sick you don't want to be taking supplements with iron in them, etc. (Iron can "feed" an infection.) Though studies have shown that beta-carrotene is not really helpful, they studied synthetic b-c, while this contains b-c from sea algae, which I believe is a much better source and also contains other trace nutrients. The C in this one is easy on the stomach, and the E is the best type: d-alpha, not dl-alpha. (Carlson is great at making E; that's how they made a name for themselves, that and their great fish oil.) The selenium content is just right so that if you take two of these per day you'll get the max amount of selenium, plus a conservative but decent amount of C, plus a good amount of E and beta carotene. Works for us!
I have difficulty tolerating most Vitamin C supplements—even the "buffered" variety causes me stomach discomfort—but not these guys. Carlson's is a respected name within the supplement industry and a brand that my nutritionist recommends. And IHERB's price on the product is as good as it gets.
