Thorne Research, T.A.P.S., 60 Veggie Caps16 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.

- Picrorhiza Protects Liver Cells from the Effects of Toxic Compounds
Silybum marianum (milk thistle) has been used for centuries to support liver function. Silymarin's hepatoprotective effects are accomplished via several mechanisms, including antioxidation, inhibition of lipid peroxidation, enhanced liver detoxification via inhibition of phase I detoxification and enhanced glucuronidation, and protection of glutathione depletion. Siliphos consists of the most potent flavonoid in silymarin (silybin) bound to phosphatidylcholine for enhanced hepatoprotection and bioavailability.
Curcumin, an active flavonoid from turmeric, has potent antioxidant, hepatoprotective, and gastroprotective properties. Curcumin is bound to phosphatidylcholine in the highly bioavailable phytosome complex – Meriva. Cynara scolymus (artichoke) has a long history of use in hepatic support.
Picrorhiza is used in Ayurvedic medicine to optimize liver function. In studies, Picrorhiza extracts and their constituents protected liver cells from damage caused by carbon tetrachloride, aflatoxin B1, and acetaminophen. Picrorhiza acts as an antioxidant and inhibitor of lipid peroxidation in cell membranes, and it also increases bile flow. The hepatoprotective effects of Picrorhiza may be due to its antioxidant activity – inhibition of oxygen anion generation and free-radical scavenging. Like silymarin, Picrorhiza can stimulate liver regeneration, possibly via stimulation of nucleic acid and protein synthesis.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This product has a unique combination of herbs that support the liver and help with detoxification. I have felt better since adding this to my daily supplement regimen.
This is the best product of its type, I have tried many other but never got the results I have with the T.A.P.S. The prices on this site are also very competitive, and the products ship out right away.
