Thorne Research, Meta-Fem, 240 Veggie Caps18 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.

The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement. At Thorne, we believe this is the starting point for every individual's supplementation needs and that these products should contain all the essential nutrients. We also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials – those without unnecessary additives and preservatives – every individual's outcome will be optimized.
Women who are peri- or postmenopausal need vitamins and minerals for maintenance of healthy bones, as well as specific nutritional support for hormonal changes they are experiencing. Meta-Fem is a complete dietary supplement for women of either peri- or postmenopausal age. It contains more calcium than our other multi formulas because women need more absorbable calcium and other nutrients that support good bone health. Meta-Fem features calcium citrate-malate (shown to be significantly better absorbed than calcium carbonate or oyster shell calcium). Meta-Fem also contains 1,600 IU of pure vitamin D in a full daily dose to help maintain bone and immune health. Meta-Fem contains no iron, as the need for iron usually lessens as a woman enters menopause. If a woman in the perimenopausal period is experiencing abnormally heavy menses, it is recommended that she take Nutri-Fem or add a blood-building formula such as Ferrasorb.
In addition, specific nutrients and botanicals have been added with the special needs of this population of women in mind. Wild yam provides phytoprogesterone-like effects, while dong quai has been used in traditional Chinese medicine, along with other herbs, for the control of vasomotor symptoms of menopause. Hesperidin methyl chalcone is also included because of its potential to ease hot flashes. While these additions to Meta-Fem may lessen the occurrence of uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause, it has been designed to be used in conjunction with Meta-Balance for additional menopause support.

iHerb Customer Reviews
My alternative medicine/Reiki practitioner recommended this brand to me and the vitamins! The most pure and easy to swallow (the capsule vs the gigantic tablet form other brands)Would reccomend this product w/o hesitationto anybody over 40!!!! My energy level is so high due to this product and I had a tendency of hair loss-minor but still-stopped since the moment I have taken these vatamins!
This product is the best multi vitamin on the market. I only take half a dose. If I start to feel run down, or a cold coming on, I find I have usually forgotten to take these vitamins for a while, and one to two half doses returns me to my usual state of excellent health. I am 58.
