Thorne Research, Super EPA, 90 Gelcaps9 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 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.

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because humans must get them from food or supplementation; i.e., they cannot be made from other substances in the body. Essential omega-3 fatty acids from fish, EPA and DHA, are beneficial for the cardiovascular system. They support good circulation by maintaining healthy blood vessels, enhancing blood flow by optimizing vascular endothelial function, and maintaining already normal triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are also supportive of healthy brain function. EPA and DHA are important throughout adulthood, as well as during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development. Dietary supplementation with DHA and EPA has proven beneficial for a number of the known higher mental functions.
Super EPA (an EPA/DHA-containing fish oil supplement) has been one of Thorne Research's best-selling products for over two decades because of its exceptional purity and quality. Recent technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules. As always, Thorne Research provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available. Molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I don't take them everyday, but I haven't noticed any gastro side effects when I do. My eyes have a tendency to get dry so my eye doctor recommended omega 3 supplements. I find it helps.
Thank you for carrying Thorne Research, super EPA. This products is the most effective I have used. It nourishes the brain and helps painful joints like no other natural product, as far as I am concerned. This company is very careful about quality control; so your controlled environment warehousing assures that your customers benefit. Appreciatively, your new customer. (B. Hughes)
