Healthy Origins, Krill Oil, 500 mg, 6 Softgels79 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jan 2016
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.

Healthy Origins Krill Oil is extracted from the Euphausia superba species of krill found in the Antarctic waters of the southern ocean. Euphausia superba, with a biomass of over 500,000,000 tons, is one of the most abundant life forms on the planet. Since the 19th century, krill has been harvested as a food source for humans and animals, but only in more recent times has it been harvested to extract the oils contained with the krill. These oils contain substantial levels of Omega 3’s, Phospholipids and Astaxanthin.
As a dietary supplement for adults, take two (2) softgels twice daily with your first meal, or as directed by a physician.
Gelatin, glycerin, purified water, natural vanilla. Enteric coating consists of ethyl cellulose, sodium alginate, ammonium hydroxide, medium chain triglycerides, oleic acid, stearic acid.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Generally, krill oil is a great product: it has higher concentrations of eicosapentaenoic polyunsaturated fatty acid and astaxanthin, a keto-carotenoid and powerful antioxidant, than fish oil and, as a result of this, is more effective in treating heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, neurodegenerative conditions, Alzheimer's disease, attention disorders, cystic fibrosis, stress, anxiety and depression. It boosts the immune system, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood sugar spikes, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, supports the liver function, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, reduces inflammation, helps maintain healthy joints, bones and teeth, relives stress, and even reduces the risk of cancer. But this krill oil is not the type of krill oil I would buy. It contains ethyl cellulose, sodium alginate, ammonium hydroxide, and stearic acid. Ethyl cellulose is a binder and viscosity increasing agent suspected to be a human toxicant and allergen. Ammonium hydroxide is a denaturant and pH-adjuster known to be a persistent and bioaccu mulative human toxicant, allergen, skin irritant and carcinogen. Sodium alginate is a thickener and flavor enhancer which may potentially lead to hypertension, calcium deficiency, and heart disease. Stearic acid is most likely to be animal derived (since it's not specified that it's plant derived) and may be neurotoxic and carcinogenic. Definitely not a supplement you would recommend.
I'm a big fan of NOW Foods DHA 500, it has 750mg of omega 3 per enteric coated fish oil gel. It has a wonderful effect on my chronic inflammation. This krill oil product didn't do anything for me. In those 3 days of that trial period, I started having pain again in my joints. So it's worthless, comparing to fish oil. visit my page for more reviews
