Thorne Research, Phytoprofen, 60 Veggie Caps
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.

Phytoprofen is a combination of botanicals, including a synergistic blend of the Ayurvedic herbs – Picrorhiza, Boswellia, and curcumin (from turmeric) – all of which support the body's normal inflammatory response. To these botanicals is added bromelain – a protein-digesting enzyme complex from pineapple that studies have shown can reduce bruising after injury.
The botanical extracts in Phytoprofen also can minimize post-operative / post-injury bruising and swelling. Supplementation with bromelain following blunt injuries to the musculoskeletal system resulted in reductions in swelling and tenderness.
A recent in vivo study examined Boswellia extract for its effect on glycosaminoglycan metabolism. Glycosaminoglycans form an important component of the body's connective tissues. Boswellia significantly reduced the degradation of glycosaminoglycans compared to controls.
Meriva, curcumin phytosome, demonstrates superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin. Significantly greater amounts are absorbed and taken up by the liver. A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated Meriva's superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin. This animal study indicated a significantly greater plasma concentration time curve, with an area under the curve (AUC) five times higher for Meriva. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with Meriva supplementation. A recent human study (not yet published) demonstrated even greater bioavailability. Meriva supplementation resulted in significantly better absorption than with ordinary curcumin dosing.
