Protocol for Life Balance, Bromelain, 2400 GDU/g, 500 mg, 90 VcapsWrite a Review
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.

Bromelain is a proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme from the pineapple plant. It is functional throughout a wide pH range and does not lose its activity as it goes through the acidic environment of the stomach. Scientific studies have shown that Bromelain is highly bioavailable and can help to temporarily alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with occasional stress and strain. Protocol for Life Balance Bromelain 2400 GDU is one of the highest natural potencies of this proteolytic enzyme available and is encapsulated in Vcaps for a 100% vegetarian formula.
Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that is extracted from the stem and the fruit of the pineapple plant. It was once widely believed that most orally ingested enzymes are destroyed by the digestive juices in the stomach prior to being absorbed. However, it has been shown scientifically that Bromelain does not lose its potency as it travels through the stomach.
