Thorne Research, Meta-Balance, 120 Veggie Caps2 Reviews
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.

Each woman's experience with menopause is different. While many women have only a few problems, others find this phase of life extremely difficult and troubling. Menopausal symptoms are often experienced years before the menstrual cycle ends, during what is known as the perimenopausal period. This may last for as long as 10 years, starting most commonly when a woman is in her early-to-mid 40s.
Because of both the short-term side effects and the long-term health issues associated with conventional hormone replacement therapy, many women desire a more natural approach to allaying some of the unpleasant aspects of menopause. Lifestyle changes can help alleviate some of these uncomfortable conditions. For example, increasing aerobic exercise can reduce hot flashes and improve sleep, while reducing consumption of spicy foods and alcohol may also help reduce hot flashes. In addition, a number of herbs and dietary supplements have been found to be of great benefit during menopause.
Designed to be taken in addition to the multiple vitamin-mineral Meta-Fem, Meta-Balance is a botanical formula designed to help manage the normal ebbing of hormones associated with menopause, which can result in hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia, night sweats, and poor memory. Wild yam, black cohosh, Vitex, and dong quai support the natural decrease in female hormone production. Black cohosh and dong quai have potential estrogenic properties. Vitex appears to have a stimulating effect on the ovaries. Progesterone production decreases throughout menopause; wild yam provides natural progesterone-like substances. Hesperidin methyl chalcone (HMC) is known for its antioxidant properties as well as its ability to strengthen capillaries. It is also known to stabilize vasomotor activity associated with menopausal hot flashes.
