By Carlson Labs5 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 2019
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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
These are small tablets with small amounts of few only harmless fillers. Beside of other mineral bisglycinate chelates like Carlsons Chelated Copper tabs or products containing Albions Ferrochel (ferrous (bis)glycinate) this is the perfect choice for zinc in the form of zinc (bis)glycinate. A study on organic trace mineral sources in animal nutrition has shown zinc glycinate (this is a real chelate) to be even more bioavailable than zinc methionine (zinc MONOmethionine is a complex only, one methionine and one sulfate ion per zinc ion). That's why I think it may be the preferable form of zinc for human, too.
. other zinc formulas were not chelated to an amino acid, such as glycine, or methionine, or they were mixed with copper; whereas, my heavy use of spirulina means that I'm already getting too much copper . . but if you don't have natural sources of copper, you might consider a different formula .
