Thorne Research, GI-Encap, 60 Veggie Caps11 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jun 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.

Aloe vera demonstrates significant gastroprotective effects via a number of mechanisms, including mast cell stabilization and antioxidant effects. Only the inner gel filet is used in this product, alleviating any laxative effect. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice is well known for its ability to optimize mucus production by gastrointestinal mucosal cells and to promote a healthy GI tract. Licorice root preparations have been used for many years for the nutritional support of the stomach and duodenum. Glycyrrhizin is removed from the extract to prevent a rise in blood pressure that has been observed in some individuals taking whole licorice root. Slippery elm bark (Ulmus rubra) and marshmallow root (Althea officinalis) contain mucilaginous components that are soothing to the digestive tract.
To soothe esophageal irritation, GI-Encap can be taken out of the capsule and mixed with warm water for a soothing tea.
Take 1-2 capsules with each meal or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Great product and price. Using this with Jarrow N~A-G and aloe vera flakes to heal leaky gut and stomach problems. Used together they are very effective. Great price.
This product is simply the best thing available for dealing with ulcers. After taking it for a couple of days, it always relieves ALL of my symptoms. Moreover, unless you want to pay $20 - $30 or more, this product is the only source of solid plantain available anywhere. Solid plantain does wonders for ulcers, and it is very soothing for irritated portions of the digestive tract. Thorne Research has done an excellent job of combining plantain with a few other herbs to make for a product that does wonders for the digestive system. Kudos to iHerb for starting to carry this item.
