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.

Mercola Joint Formula supplies 2mg of this effective phytonutrient antioxidant and outstanding member of the carotenoid family.
The astaxanthin used for our product is Zanthin supplied by one of the premier suppliers of high quality astaxanthin. It is taken from Haematococcus pluvialis, the most abundant natural source yet discovered.
Once the tough cell wall of the algae is cracked open, it's highly unstable, and must be extracted immediately. Our supplier uses a proprietary extraction process which yields:
- 85-90% astaxanthin
- 2% lutein
- 2% carotene
- 6% other carotenoids, including small amounts of canthaxanthin
The DeepExtract process creates a high quality, stable product. Plus, their O2B Peroxidation Blocker stabilization technology ensures the long-term (24 months) stability and efficacy of your supplement.
DeepExtract offers gentle treatment of high-quality astaxanthin at much lower temperatures than those used in expeller press and certain chemical solvent extraction operations. And it's done in the absence of oxygen – which reduces degradation and chemical changes in the product.
This supercritical CO2 process:
- Produces an extract untouched by chemical solvents
- Creates astaxanthin free of impurities and residues
- Offers some of the highest efficacy profiles of any extracted products
Our supplier shuns the use of preservatives in their efforts to stabilize their astaxanthin. Instead they use their proprietary O2B Peroxidation Blocker system, which:
- Is 100% natural
- Is non-GMO
- Is designed to protect sensitive oils until they are consumed
- Combines botanicals to prevent unwanted chemical reactions
- Protects expensive and sensitive ingredients
- Extends the shelf-life of oils
- Boosts the effectiveness of other anti-oxidants like vitamin E, because it can chemically quench stable vitamin E free radicals
- No doubt about it, BiovaFlex and Zanthin provide a terrific base of support for your joints.*

iHerb Customer Reviews
I bought this for my elderly mother in the hope that it might help the osteoarthritis in her hand. Alas, it hasn't done that but it has cured something else: the burning searing pain she used to get along the back of her neck and shoulder-blades, e.g. when looking down at the sink while washing the dishes or at the counter while preparing a meal. It was so bad she would have to stop and lie down. I don't know what the medical term for this condition is but, if you suffer from it, I'm sure you'll recognise those symptoms! That pain is now completely gone. (We're still working on the osteoarthritis...)
I have tried glucosamine and got some relief of swelling and stiffness but Dr. Mercolas is the ticket for me. I say results within 2-3 weeks. I keep it on hand now.
