Expiration Date: Mar 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.

Vitamin C is perhaps the most popular vitamin known to man. It is consumed in a supplemental form by millions of people across the world for its antioxidant properties, which are well-documented in medical research. Calcium Ascorbate is an optimal nutritional supplement that combines Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) with Calcium Carbonate. By combining these two dietary ingredients, we have created buffered source of Vitamin C that will not contribute to gastric irritation in sensitive persons.
Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This is perfect for combining with bromelain for my rotator cuff injury. When I don't take the combination three times a day between meals, I hurt!
This is the best vitamin c formulation there is. You can read that everywhere. Your body is better capable of absorbing this compared to ascorbin acid. I use 3 capsules a day with food.
