By Now Foods18 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 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.

Cranberries are a well-known source of abundant flavonoids and other bioactive components. There are several distinct classes of flavonoids found in cranberries, all with antioxidant properties and each having potentially unique physiologic functions. Cranberry flavonoids include anthocyanins, the pigments that give cranberries their rich red color, flavonols, and proanthocyanidins. Of particular interest to researchers, proanthocyanidins isolated from cranberries exhibit an anti-adhesion effect. This anti-adhesion effect is the mechanism by which cranberries help maintain urinary tract health. Cranberry proanthocyanins are easily absorbed by the digestive tract and excreted in the urine. The presence of these compounds in the urine helps to cleanse the waste stream.
D-Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in some plants. Although small amounts of D-Mannose are metabolized by the human body, most of it is rapidly excreted in the urine. Similar to proanthocyanins, it exerts and anti-adhesion effect in the urinary tract that allows waste products to be flushed out in the urine. Because insubstantial amounts of D-Mannose are used by the body, it does not interfere with healthy blood sugar regulation. This dual anti-adherence formula also contains probiotic bacteria that help to maintain health microbial balance.

iHerb Customer Reviews
My wife has suffered a lot from UTIs and finaly found the solution with D-mannose. after we have seen this product we have immediately ordered. Result amazing; she is using a few packets and all problems are gone. May be probiotics also improving the imune system she feels much better now. a few years back she was in really bad condition and bad mood with using all those antibiotics, Now she is getting rid of UTI as it is just a minor headache. If u are suffering UTIs do not wait....
I think that for a person who has a chronic UTI or an acute one this product is far too weak. For such people I would recommend U-Tract by Progressive Laboratories or Urinary Tract in powder.They really help fast and sure. But if you are away on a trip, on business or somewhere else, it is very convenient to take this stuff with you. Each dosage is in an individual sachet. It is easy to put some sachet in a bag or in a toiletry case and take in a plane or in a bus. Of course, it is better than nothing in a trip. So I recommend taking it while travelling. And it may help absolutely to people who don't have severe UTI problems.
