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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Spirulina is a superfood and considered one of the nutritive and healthy foods! Spirulina contains all traces minerals, every amino acid needed by man (about 60% highly absorbable protein), high beta carotene and other caroteniods like zeaxanthin, vitamin B, E, K, high chlorophyll and healthy fats like GLA, DHA. Spirulina is known for boosting immune system, detoxification of heavy metals, lower high blood pressure, lower high cholesterol, lower cancer risk, lower heart diseases and many others as well. Spirulina is suitable for vegetarians. One of the debating points about spirulina is whether it contains B12 or B12 analogue (look alike that is inactive). There is a lot of yes and no so you will have to decide whether to supple with additional B12. This is the cheapest if you are looking for tablets form. If you don’t mind the taste or wants to take at high doses daily, you can save by buying the powder form. I use the tablets whenever I have to travel overseas or away so I keep taking it without tagging on the container or the blender bottle. Tablets are also more suitable if you want to take it with your meals for various reasons unless you don’t mind drinking spirulina along with your meals. Another plus point is that the supplements contain no fillers, binders or flow agents (Quite rare for any supplement in tablet form). The tablets are circular in shape. Personally, I find it hard to swallow many tablets of this shape together at the time. The recommended dose is 6 tablets daily which is quite low. Minimally, you need at least 5g (10 tablets). For optimum results, 10g daily (20 tablets) will be needed. Remember to increase the dosage slowly as the spirulina’s detoxing effects can cause loose stools and gas if you take more than you can handle. Check out my page for more reviews!
