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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I had all the symptoms of hypochlorhydria (weak stomach acid): reflux, adult acne, eczema on my scalp and face, athlete's foot. You need strong acid to utilize the nutrition in food. It appears that my depression was related to being malnourished, because I no longer fall into deep depression (suicidal thoughts). You need strong stomach acid to absorb B12, and B12 deficiency has been linked to depression. I always had a slight, but constant, thick congestion -- that is gone. I also used to suffer from very dry skin, but that has gotten better. Twinlab has worked best for me. Now Foods brand was useless for me. Read a book called: "Why Stomach Acid is Good for You: Natural Relief from Heartburn, Indigestion, Reflux and GERD" written by an M.D. and Ph.D. With regard to reflux, they say "strong stomach acid = strong valve." They recommend working up to 6 - 7 capsules/meal. Once I started taking HCl, I was cured of the reflux instantaneously. I do wish they made Betaine HCl in a more concentrated form. I go through a bottle/week. I also lost weight -- I used to be quite chubby. Again, strong acid means you are sqeezing all of the nutrients out of your food, so you don't get hungry as often.
I have to say this is a good product for the money.. As someone with low stomach acid due to adrenal fatigue and hypothyroid, this product is helping me break down the foods that were not being broke down.
