HealthForce Nutritionals, Truly Natural Vitamin C, 17.6 oz (500 g)79 Reviews
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.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Each 1.5 Teaspoons Provides: 302 mg of naturally occurring, truly natural, absorbable, non-toxic Vitamin C complex from a whole food extract of acerola berry (containing naturally occurring cofactors including bioflavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients). Naturally buffered. This product does not contain isolated vitamin C! This truly natural acerola concentrate is not excreted in large amounts in the urine (visible as a yellowish tint), is not highly acidic, is non-toxic, and does not cause nutrient imbalances (does not imbalance iron and copper levels or promote anemia). Vitamin C never occurs as an isolate in nature; it is part of an entire vitamin C complex! Food sources of the entire vitamin C complex are the only way to get nutrition as nature intended.
1.5 teaspoons or more per day. Store at room temperature. The amber glass bottle, metal lid, and oxygen absorber preserve nutrients optimally. Mix with purified water, fresh juice, soy milk, rice milk, freshly made sesame seed milk, smoothies, Vitamineral Green, Vitamineral Earth, or other food.
Suggested Adjuncts: A whole foods, organic, Vegan diet with emphasis on high-water-content, fresh, raw/live foods (see the book "Uncooking with Jameth & Kim"); Vitamineral Green and Vitamineral Earth (unique and comprehensive superfood nutrient and detoxification complexes), Liver Rescue; exercise (try rebounding); fresh air (get lots of plants); and everything else healthful. HealthForce truly cares and is committed to researching and developing the highest quality, most regenerative, life-enhancing products.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I just received this and when I looked at the label, I saw "Non GMO corn maltodextrin as a drying medium" listed under "Other ingredients." I didn't know whether that meant there was a dessicant packet inside or whether the maltodextrin was in the product itself, so I called the LifeForce company and they told me that the product is TWENTY PERCENT Corn maltodextrin (which is a fancy name for corn SUGAR)! I did not bother to open the jar and I'm bothered that this was NOT fully disclosed in the iHerb listing of the product. To me, that's deceptive and not in keeping with the otherwise good information on this site. LifeForce also was not totally honest in not listing that on the label, because it surely will affect the amount of carbs as well as its behavior in the body. Nutrient information is supposed to include those kinds of things, as far as I know. Anyone who is concerned about carbs or high glycemic foods should stay away from this entirely, not to mention all of those who might be allergic to corn! Sheesh!
Great product except it doesn't say anywhere on the product that it is organic - only "truly natural" which is a bunch of marketing BS. I just assumed it was organic when I bought it since it was a healthforce product...should have looked closer (cherries are HEAVILY sprayed). Sheridan, please make this product organic and add camu camu! I love your other products.
