Intensive Nutrition, Viracin, Plant Tannins Gastrointestinal Support, 120 Veggie Caps2 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.

Viracin contains the most powerful phagicidal and virucidal herbal tannins available, specifically Norwegian Maple fruit, Babul bark and Wild rhubarb (canaigre). Its application is to help support normal flora balance in the gastrointestine.
How does Viracin work?
Viracin works in the same manner as Tanalbit: attaching to the outer membrane of the target cell (in this case bacteria) which disables the cell and prevents proliferation and growth. Like Tanalbit it is non-toxic with the occasional minimal side effect of constipation and/or diarrhea. If this occurs, reduction in dosage is suggested.
Viracin is designed for use in the stomach and some areas of the GI tract only (it can NOT be used for venereal disease, herpes or diseases requiring intensive drug therapy). It does support the immune system during winter months as it prevents proliferation of bacterial organisms from the GI to the rest of the body.
Who should consider this formula?
Viracin has applications for individuals with intestinal dysbiosis, including pathogenic overgrowth. Viracin may help restore intestinal flora levels back to normal range by reducing pathogenic bacteria in the stomach (not the large intestine --this is where Tanalbit works). Viracin can be taken with Tanalbit. Viracin can replace Tanalbit therapies for stomach bacteria when casein allergies are known. (Tanalbit contains casein)
Viracin can help scavenge bacterial and viral components and in this regard is helpful for the overall immune system. During winter months, individuals have reported feeling relief in sinus areas after taking Viracin.
