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.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have been suffering from back pain for 8 years, I could not get by without this product for the last several years. The addition of the Avocado Soy Unsaponifiables combined with their super high purity chondroitin from Bioiberica makes this joint product currently the best available for pain by a very significant margin. This company has the most exacting purity and quality standards of any company I have ever seen and that manifests itself in the high price. My pain reduction with this product is at least twice as good if not better than with any other comparable joint supportive product on the market, and believe me I've tried many. CONS: When I stop taking this product, my pain comes back within 1-3 days every time. So this product must be taken essentially forever depending on the severity of your condition which in my case is a badly degenerated and herniated disc. I despise their addition of artificial colors and flavors. The colorings are in the capsule, so I have to remove the contents from the capsule every time I take this product. On top of that, the artificial flavorings cannot be removed as they are mixed within the powder to enhance flavor for people who cannot swallow capsules. Also, I would prefer they use the vegetarian corn source of glucosamine. The fact that I take this product despite all of these negative qualities and after trying multiple different brands over the years (starting back in the day with the Schiff brand to the modern Life extension brand to the Vibrant Health brand's Joint Vibrance 2.0) is a testament to its efficacy. IHerb's pricing is very disappointing on this item, Costco offers it for 13 dollars less online which disgraces IHerb, the supposed best price internet retailer. I will be contacting IHerb about this.
I'm putting lots of efforts towards getting better from my chondromalacia: physiotherapy, changing habits, plus taking this medicine that was prescribed by my doctor. Seems to be working well!
