Life Extension, Norwegian Shark Liver Oil, 1000 mg, 30 Softgels4 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 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.

Norwegian Shark Liver Oil (26% Alkylglycerols)
Research has shed additional light on the multi-faceted benefits of alkylglycerols (AKG), glycerol ether lipids from shark liver oil. Alkylglycerols stimulate the production of white blood cells (leukocytes) to normal levels and encourage the growth of antibodies.
Alkylglycerols are beneficial because they are known to increase production of certain cytokines. As a natural bacteria fighter, alkylglycerols are able to support the helper T-cells, which are highly sensitized to the bacteria-infected macrophage, thus enabling the body to regulate the bacteria.
This Norwegian Shark Liver Oil is processed from the livers of sharks found in the waters off the coast of Norway. Each softgel is standardized to provide 200 mg of alkylglycerols and can be taken for up to 30 days.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
Take one (1) softgel daily with food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Gelatin, glycerin, purified water.
Contains fish [Greenland Shark (somniosus microcephalus)].
Store tightly closed in a cool, dry place.
Caution: At no time should the maximum recommended dose be exceeded. Do not take shark liver oil for more than 30 days because it may cause the overproduction of blood platelets. In case of chronic use, over 30 days straight, a possible, albeit rare, side effect known as thrombocythemia (excess thrombocytes) can occur, leading to a tendency for the blood to clot. This condition is easily diagnosed with a blood test. Consult with your physician if thrombocythemia is a consideration.
- Keep out of reach of children.
- Do not exceed recommended dose.
- Do not purchase if outer seal is broken or damaged.
- When using nutritional supplements, please consult with your physician if you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition or if you are pregnant or lactating.

iHerb Customer Reviews
My platelets have been slowly dropping for the last few years, due to Hep C. This did not work. I bought 12 bottles and it did not increase platelets. Life Extensions article said it would help increase platelets, but it didn't.
The product is fine, I just wonder if this product is very ethical. It could be but is there a way to be sure?
