Optimum Nutrition, HMB 1000 Caps, 1000 mg, 90 Capsules16 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 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
I highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to get stronger & recover quicker. To give you a little background on my situation. Recovering my strength & muscle mass from the damage done by Celiac has not been easy. They say it takes 2-3 years for the lining in the intestines to fully heal in adults. This means absorption issues continue for a few years once a proper gluten-free diet has been established. As a former trainer & newly diagnosed, I gently worked out, ate a nutritionally balanced, organic, gluten free diet & got plenty of rest. I avoided alcohol & never smoked. I also journaled everything from how my body was recovering to workout routines. I used a heart rate monitor to track my progress. I only used this product for 3 1/2 weeks with incredible results. I wish I could post the before and after photos within a two week time frame so everyone could see the difference. My gains in the gym were felt before the increase in my lifts became apparent. I noticed I had better endurance. My recovery was better. I was less sore. Then I had better strength as I made rep, set & weight increases. Then later I had a better physique. This product is used in the elderly, patients with chronic disease such as cancer or AIDS. I wish they would do more research in Celiac with this because this could be very beneficial to those who have suffered from malabsoprtion issues & muscle wasting. Now I'm 2 months away from being gluten free for 2 years. And I'm 3 days away from entering my first figure competition. Most importantly I didn't lose any muscle during this 12 week process. In fact, I gained the most muscle & became the strongest I've ever been. While I'm still relatively small for being 5'09" & weighing 125 pounds, I actually look like a figure competitor. Had it not been for this product, I strongly believe that I would be stuck slow recovery, pretty fatigued, & plateaued like I was in the first 8 weeks of training without it. Best in Health!!!
I am 47 and have been on calorie restriction (1600 Kcal a day) for the last 6 months while dealing with weight gain due to a sluggish thyroid. Since I don't each much meat I was worried about losing muscle with such a strict diet of low calories and protein. Amazingly, I am actually making steady strength gains. A very underrated supplement that deserves more attention.
