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.

Solgar's Full Spectrum Omega Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil Softgels are carefully manufactured from Wild Alaskan Salmon that were sustainably caught from the pristine, cold waters of Alaska. These softgels go through a proprietary purification process to ensure removal of heavy metals, including mercury, PCBs and other environmental impurities, while still maintaining optimal integrity of the oil and potency. This oil complies with the quality specifications for Omega-3 oils set forth by the CRN monograph, which is advocated by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED).
Because balance is important - whether it be nutritional or environmental, Solgar contributes to those dedicated to helping protect wild salmon and their natural habitats along the Pacific Rim, which helps to support fisheries achieve sustainability and minimize environmental impact.
Fish have few peers on the list of healthful, disease-preventive foods. Although most fatty, cold-water fish are good sources of Omega-3, one of the richest and most beneficial sources is Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, making it unique among high-protein foods. Its natural oil is among the purest of all ocean fish. Wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon is also one of the richest sources of EPA and DHA—the Omega-3 fatty acids that most people consume too little of, and that make this fish uniquely healthful. The levels of EPA, DHA, and other fatty acids found in Solgar's softgels—and the proportions of each in relation to one another—reflect those found in wild salmon.
Solgar's Full Spectrum Softgels provide an excellent source of Vitamin D3, an essential vitamin that supports many areas of wellness, including, bone, immune, breast, cardiovascular, colon and pancreatic health. In addition, thus specialty formula supplies the powerful natural antioxidant, Astaxanthin - a fat soluble carotenoid pigment that gives salmon its distinctive bright color.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I purchased this brand of salmon oil due to some concerns with New Chapter's Wholemega brand. In comparing the two products side by side, it is my opinion that these products are of the same quality or higher quality than the Wholemega products. Both brands have a dark orange tinted capsules, much richer looking than many other fish oil capsules. Both brands are derived from salmon oil (in the case of Solgar sockeye salmon oil) as opposed to smaller fish or krill. Both brands have a wide array of Omega oils (3, 5, 6, 7, 9) as well as Astaxanthin and Vitamin D3 (in fact, Solgar is higher in many of these categories). On top of all this, this product is offered at a lower price per capsule than the Wholemega brand ($ .19 per capsule for Solgar vs. $ .27 per capsule for Wholemega). In comparing all of these factors, it seems to me this product is a better value. Also, no fish burps or problems for me with digestion. I will purchase this product often and use this brand as my primary fish oil from now on. Excellent product!
………it is about how well they are absorbed. Studies are out that show that the presence of other fats in the fish activates processes required to absorb EPA and DHA (omega 3) properly. This explains why EPA and DHA are better absorbed from eating whole fish than from taking fish oil (with only EPA & DHA). Solgar wild Alaskan salmon oil delivers the full spectrum of omega’s found in salmon and not only omega 3. Another great product from Solgar. I’m using 7 supplements. All but one (Stevia) are from Solgar. In my experience Solgar is the best. Reliable company. Also kudos to Iherb. Fast delivery and well packaged. As usual. Thanx.
