Source Naturals, Perilla Oil, 1000 mg, 90 Softgels13 Reviews
Expiration Date: Feb 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.

- Rich Source of Plant-Based Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Perilla Oil, extracted from the plant Perilla fructescens, is a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is a precursor to the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. ALA is similar to fish oil in its benefits, but without any unpleasant aftertaste. ALA may support the health of many organs and body systems, including the cardiovascular system, immune system, skin, brain, and joints. Population and animal studies suggest an association between high dietary intake of ALA and breast and colon health.

iHerb Customer Reviews
For whatever reason(s), this oil didn't do good things for me - similar issues with flax. Bloating, lethargy and felt like rubbish, though I can tolerate walnuts. Flax is high in plant hormones and salicylates - perilla is likely to be as well. I do not recommend this for anyone who has sensitivity issues of any kind (e.g. aspirin, salicylates, phenols, immune system, hormonal, etc). If this review was helpful to you, please click YES below - thank you. For reviews of all the products I have purchased from iHerb, please click my username above.
My husband does not eat any seafood and his doctor recommended perilla oil about 5 years ago. My husband has been using this product ever since.
