By Now Foods68 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jan 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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
It is very tasteless. I'm not sure that eating it. А mild laxative effect.
Quite a few people have been complaining about the taste and smell of this oils mix. I was one of them. Mind you, I am not a very sensitive to taste or smell when it comes to health food but I could hardly tolerate this taste. However, just after 2-3 weeks of taking it daily there has been a great improvement with my skin (I have dermatitis and a bit of acne), my period was a breeze comparing to the usual ones. I think I have got used to its taste and smell after all. I still take it first thing in the morning with a glass of warm water with lemon juice. If you are sensitive you can try taking it with food (lunch or dinner might be better). Overall, this oil is no worse than fish oil. And I would not be able to take that many capsules, equal to 1.5 tablespoon of Omega 3-6-9 NOW Foods. When I started taking this product I would give it 1 star, 5 weeks later it's a 5 stars product for me.
