By Now Foods3 Reviews
Expiration Date: Sep 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
Using this for chronic viral infection for the last 2 weeks and have found it very helpful.
I wish it has a larger size (thus only 3 stars).8 fl. oz is too little for this item has many uses in the household disinfecting department. Update 10/6/13 - I tested this and compared it with a batch of freshly made CS using Silverwell (aka silverpuppy). I tested its ability to kill E.coli that was used in my lab (non pathogenic). Using abt similar volume of this and freshly made CS, after 24hr incubation on nutrient agar, the freshly made CS showed it is more potent (no colony growth), but this silversol has very tiny colonies forming. I think most silver solutions , has lesser amount of silver ions over time..but the silver particles in the CS solution might not be affected..in the most recent study comparing silver ions/particles, it is concluded that silver ions is the component that gives antimicrobial activity. Although other websites claimed that silver particles also have antimicrobial activity [internally] via a different mechanism. I also noted that the potency of home made CS also degrades over time, so this seems to suggest that silver ions gradually precipitate into silver particles, and this might explain the reduced potency. My conclusion that silversol did not give better potency/stability cf to normal CS made using 'branded' unit
