Imperial Elixir, Ginseng Root, Korean White, Heaven 25, 1/2 oz5 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.

Korean white ginseng, Heaven 25
iHerb Customer Reviews
For those who haven't tried white ginseng, you should really give it a shot. I've always found it to be more mentally active than the red (which tends to be more physical). In Chinese writings, the white ginseng is attributed with more spiritual power. Like many tonics, the effects are somewhat cumulative, but these whole root products give far more "immediate" effects than capsules or extracts. The roots come extremely dry, and are quite hard... so be prepared to grate or grind them. I've used nutmeg graters, old-fashioned metal coffee grinders, mills, and even a good pair of pliers. You can just gnaw on the roots directly, but watch your teeth and be patient if you decide to go that route. All in all, a much better deal than capsules or tablets. You can probably do better if you have a Chinatown in your city or know of a good herb market, but this product is pretty good.
