By NutriBiotic8 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jul 2018
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 an essential nutrient that cannot be produced by the body and, therefore, must be replenished daily.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Dr. Paul Levy has written a book, "Curing the Incurable", which says it all about C. Calcium ascorbate C is gentle on the stomach and allows large doses to be taken. I have taken 20 grams for food poisoning, and been normal within 2 hours. Nutribiotics web site explains how they completely react their calcium ascorbate to make a very safe and effective form of vitamin C, for those who want the benefits described in Dr. Levy's book. Vitamin C has a bad habit of working.
This dissolves well with a few seconds of vigorous stirring. The taste is not gag-worthy. I purchase this brand because it lasts a while, is non-gmo, and is in one of the best non-acidic forms. I give two doses to my dogs daily in their Honest kitchen.
