Flora, DHA Flax Oil, 17 fl oz (500 ml)
By Flora8 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 2015
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.

Flora DHA Flax Oil is a vegetarian source of unrefined docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) blended with organic Flora Flax Oil to provide vegetarian (algae-derived) DHA. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential in all stages of life. In adults, DHA is essential for the proper functioning of the brain, and in the first six months of life, DHA is essential for the proper development of the nervous system and visual abilities. Flora's DHA Flax Oil is pressed from certified organic flax seeds (third party certification) that have been carefully selected for flavor and maturity. Each and every batch of flax seed is also tested to ensure it is gluten-free. Flora's high standards guarantee this product to be GMO-free. The seeds are pressed in a state-of-the-art, low-heat, light- and oxygen-free environment—then bottled in light-resistant, amber glass to ensure maximum nutritional value and freshness. Flora's DHA Flax Oil provides omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFA) for the maintenance of good health.
Shake well before using. Take 1 tablespoon one to three times daily with meals. For optimum freshness, keep refrigerated and use within 8 weeks after opening. Can be frozen to maintain freshness. Do not heat or use for frying.
One serving of Flora Vegetarian DHA Flax Oil provides 103 milligrams of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. (See Supplement Facts panel for fat content.)

iHerb Customer Reviews
One tablespoon a day seem to work for me. Has a slight bitter after taste but the benefit of no eczema breakouts makes it well worth it to me. Best in a bowl of soup or used in place of butter/margarine in a backed or mashed potatoes. YUM!
Good tasting and good for you! The price is right and fast delivery, THANKS IHerb!
