Expiration Date: Aug 2017
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.

Arginine and Ornithine combines two essential amino acids into one optimal supplement. Arginine is necessary for urea metabolism, a process that prepares toxic ammonia for safe excretion by the kidneys. Ornithine is synthesized from Arginine and is a precursor of citrulline, proline and glutamic acid. Both of these amino acids are popular with athletes and other active individuals.

iHerb Customer Reviews
My sister had very HIGH blood pressure, HIGH cholesterol, HIGH blood sugar, and blocking arteries to the kidneys. After several trips to the hospital, she decided to listen to me, trashed her statin drugs and Metformin, began taking Arginine along with other warming herbs and changed her diet. Within 1-2 weeks, everything became normal - she's amazed. Arginine dilates blood vessels allowing blood to flow more freely to body parts. Her husband was impressed so began taking it..Their sex life is much better now. No drugs. Take at night, get better sleep. It's great before exercise to boost nitrogen oxide and helps with growth hormone. Body builders know all about it.
This product seems to work just as well as the oral med (Nifedipine) the doctor prescribed me to heal a severe anal fissure. It helps dilate the blood vessels b/c of the production of nitric oxide and therefore relax the muscle spasm. I think this might also be helpful for hemmorhoids. Be sure to take on an empty stomach.
