Doctor's Best, PepZin Gl, Zinc-L-Carnosine Complex, 120 Veggie Caps85 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 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.

PepZin Gl is a complex of the mineral zinc and L-carnosine. PepZin Gl was developed in Japan and has been in widespread use there since 1994. Research on PepZin Gl has found that it is extremely beneficial in supporting healthy gastric function. PepZin Gl acts by supporting the integrity of stomach cells and may exert free-radical scavenging activity, inhibiting the expression of certain cytokines. PepZin Gl also promotes healthy mucus secretions from stomach cells while maintaining a healthy bacterial balance in the GI tract.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have used NOW's pepzin, but this Doctor's brand is surely better since it only offers Pepzin whereas NOW includes 2 other herbs and additives... It may sound confusing why Doctor's is better, but after using NOW's for 2 months I have developed moderate stomach spasms whenever I take the pills due to either slippery elm or other herbs or additives in NOW's product...I suspect this is allergic reaaction... i can't take the product anymore. When I want to buy Pepzin, I want to buy Pepzin,.. not a combination of other things that really doesn't help me with stomach illness. Doc's product offers ony Pepzin and that is all I need!
I have used this before and then quit for a while and my stomach problems came back. So I started taking it again and it is helping. I use it along with DGL, Aloe vera juice, and mastic gum. Does take a little while to feel the benefit.
