Expiration Date: May 2017
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
Don't care what research shows that E does not work because........it does work! Many long years ago, my husband was suffering with cluster headaches (he described them as an ice pick going through your eyeball), and we went to the Shute Institute in London, Ontario, Canada. Just a mere 800 i.u.'s of E would keep the headaches from returning (if you know about clusters, they occur every 2 years in Jan/Feb at 2-3 a.m. Very precise). Our appt. was in Oct. and I had doubts they could work that quickly in 4 months, esp. such a low dosage. But, no headaches and soon my husband stopped taking the E. The headaches returned and the oxygen tank went back in the basement; he started taking the E again. He stopped the E again. #3 of the headache rounds (and oxygen tank)) convinced him he should continue the E.....forever. He religiously takes the E every day. This brand was recommended by the Shute Institute.
This is the vitamin E recommended by the excellent Dr Sherry Rogers. They are of a high enough quality that you can easily snip a hole in them and chew them for a bit, then spit the empty gel capsule out - if you're trying to lessen your stomach's digestive load. The taste is very neutral. I love the huge capsule count with this product too.
