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
The 1945+ post-war Baby Boom results in millions of people turning 65 in 2010+ ; a new 'senior' generation. Lutein has been proven to prevent the onset of the blinding condition Age-related Macular Degeneration (MD). Lutein should help us guys to 'see' into the future. Reading the label on Solgar Lutein, the sparse ingredients indicate the purity of this product compared to others on the market. An added bonus the capsules are vegetarian and not gelatine derived from bovine. This magnificent product has only one draw-back; an unpalatable flavor!
My husband has a chronic eye condition. The doctor suggested taking lutein of at least 10 mg per day. This has 15 mg which ensures he gets what he needs without taking two capsules (as with some) to get the minimum.
