Eclectic Institute, Vital Force, Vitamin and Mineral Supplement, 180 Tablets6 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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have tried dozens of multiple vitamin-mineral supplements. Did not realize for sometime that Eclectic Institute has this muliple, with and without iron. It is one of the few companies that suggests 2 per day if you have a normal diet compared to 6 per day if you are sick or depleted or an athlete. It is a basic formula--no green foods, cultured in yeast, etc. It is vegetarian. I take 1 in the morning and 1 at night.
I researched this one carefully and found that it is likely the best multi I have ever purchased and I have tried quite a few. Only thing, I am very sensitive to Niacinamide and at two tablets a day I got an itchy reaction. I looked at the multi that I have been taking for some years, a Senior formula. Found that the amount of niacinamide was about half that found in two of the Eclectic tabs. I never had a reaction to the Senior formula. So I am now trying a month on my old multi Senior formula to see what results I get. I would highly recommend the Eclectic multi because I see all the right things in it. I am just too sensitive to niacin products apparently. UPDATE: What I found after finishing a whole bottle of this product is that IMHO it is a very excellent Multi. I still have the problem with the Niacinimide and had to limit my intake to not more than 2 tablets a day and put up with mild itching. Now I have gone back to using my Senior Multi from my local CoOp. Seems to work very well. Perhaps I will try this product again when that bottle runs out. In summary, this is probably the best multi you will ever find. Try it.
