Frontier Natural Products, Whole Bilberry Berry, 16 oz (453 g)6 Reviews
Expiration Date: Nov 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.

Not only are these bilberries non-irradiated, free of any additives, preservatives or sugar, and make a great soothing and relaxing tea, but also they're loaded with health benefits. Rich in vitamins C, K, A, E, B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid), manganese, copper, pota ssium, iron, magnesium, zinc, dietary fiber, tannins, antioxidants, and flavonoids, they're great for treating colds, flu, fever, vitamin C deficiencies, morning sickness, nausea, stomach spasms, gastritis, ulcers, IBS, colitis, diarrhea, constipation, gallstones and gallbladder disease, lower urinary tract and kidney disorders, liver disease, fluid retention, gout, sciatica, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, cardiovascular conditions, heart disease, headaches, gluten intolerance and celiac disease, menstrual cramps, arthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatism, asthma, gingivitis, canker sores and gum disease, acne, sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, insomnia, and even cancer. Bilberries are a powerful immunostimulant and healing agent boosting the immune system, flushing toxins out of the body, aiding digestion, preventing heartburn and acid reflux, relieving nausea and bloating, healing gastric ulcers, soothing the stomach lining, reducing colon inflammation, facilitating healing, increasing blood flow in the limbs, helping stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, normalizing blood pressure, lowering triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protecting against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, improving brain function, stimulating the activity of the body’s antioxidant enzymes and neutralizing free radicals, soothing and healing dry and damaged skin, and even reducing the risk of cancer. A bilberry mask or scrub can be applied topically to heal wounds, scars, bruises, cuts, burns, rashes and acne-affected areas of your skin. It improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps break down old scar tissue, stimulates cell renewal and regeneration, and prevents premature aging. I love this product and would recommend it to anyone wanting to boost their immune system and improve their overall health and well-being.
