Thorne Research, Nutri-Fem, Basic Nutrients for Women Under 40, 240 Veggie Caps8 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jul 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.

- Dietary Supplement
Young women have their own unique nutritional needs. That's why we developed Nutri-Fem, a dietary supplement for women of childbearing age. Nutri-Fem contains optimal amounts of the well-absorbed vitamins and minerals found in our popular Basic Nutrients products – trace minerals as picolinates and our highly bioavailable, patented chromium – UltraChrome. Providing iron bound to picolinate alleviates the risk of gastric upset or constipation associated with less-absorbable forms of iron. Studies have shown that calcium supplementation confers long-term benefit to younger women, and Nutri-Fem includes the best-absorbed form of calcium and magnesium – citrate-malate. Nutri-Fem also contains 1,000 IU of pure vitamin D in a full daily dose to promote bone health. Studies show that establishing good bone health should begin well before menopause, even in women in the 18-35 year age group. Risk factors for poor bone health in this age group include physical inactivity, low body weight, eating disorders, poor nutrition, and menarche at age 15 or later.
Additional nutrients and botanicals are included to specifically benefit active younger women. A woman who consumes a healthful diet with adequate folate may reduce her risk of having a child with a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord. Folate intake should not exceed 250 percent of the government's recommended daily value (1,000 mcg). Nutri-Fem contains 1,000 mcg of the active folates – L-5-MTHF and folinic acid. Wild yam extract is added to optimize hormone balance.

iHerb Customer Reviews
wow...this supp is good, very potent my energy has increased much and a lot less infections. I take about 4-6 pills a day as I do not want to overdose. This supp I like as it has methylfolate and methylcobalamin and hydroxycobalamin and P-5-P so my body can absorb it (MTHFR mutations). Love the manganese and molybdeen as well, it did not make me moody or jittery. Some other supplements did but not this when. Highly recommend it.
excellent for keeping the woman in you balanced, at a lovely price.
