Eclectic Institute, American Bilberry, 400 mg, 120 Veggie Caps3 Reviews
Expiration Date: Dec 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
When my husband began complaining about having trouble driving home from work at night because he was seeing doubled and blurred visions, I remembered reading articles about English pilots during WW1. They were having trouble seeing at night and had discovered they solved the problem by eating bilberry. Apparently they ate it allot in jam. I ordered this bilberry because it was fresh and whole. My husband started it taking 2 capsules three times a day. It didn't take long before he noticed less vision problems driving at night (had no problem during the day). He maintained six a day for about three weeks then started to slowly decrease the dosage. He now takes one cap. three times a day and has no night vision difficulties. It worked beautifully for him and he'll keep on taking it. Small price to pay for his eyesight.
If my understanding from the suppplement Facts is correct, each capsule yielding 6.6 mg. I have been taking one cap three times a day so total of approx 20 mg a day which is perhaps too little. Will take 2 caps and see what happen. Also the spelling of the plant name and active substance is not the same as other brand, confusing.
