Thorne Research, Super EPA Pro, 120 Gelcaps1 Review
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.

Studies demonstrate that the higher the concentration of EPA in a capsule, the more effective it is in maintaining healthy triglyceride levels. Quite simply, it's what is not in the capsule that is key. For example, a typical 1,000 mg fish oil capsule might have 300-500 mg of omega-3s and 500-700 mg of other saturated and unsaturated fats per capsule – fats that can interfere with the efficacy of the omega-3s.
Super EPA Pro is manufactured using Supercritical Fluid Technology, which utilizes low temperatures and standardized pressures. The result is a pure, highly-concentrated product containing 650 mg EPA and 100 mg DHA per softgel. The low temperatures used in the extraction process assure maintenance of molecular integrity. During the processing the product is manufactured under a nitrogen blanket to ensure the supercritical oil stays fresh throughout the process, preventing oxidation of the oils.
Super EPA Pro contains omega-3 oils from small, non-accumulating fish, harvested from pristine Peruvian waters. The fish oil is from a sustainable source, which is monitored closely by sonar buoys to determine how many fish are in a particular area in order to prevent depletion of the population. The result is the most sustainable source of wild fish in the marketplace.
