Now Foods, AlphaSorb-C 1000, 120 Tablets
By Now Foods5 Reviews
Expiration Date: Sep 2017
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.

Now AlphaSorb-C includes Transport C-Plus, the trademarked blend of Threonic Acid Enhanced Buffered (non-acidic) Calcium Ascorbate and Alpha Lipoic Acid. Threonic Acid (a Vitamin C metabolite) has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of Vitamin C. Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant known to help regenerate Vitamin C in the body. Furthermore, studies suggest that Alpha Lipoic Acid may enhance the body's utilization of Vitamin C. The addition of Bioflavonoids helps to create a well-absorbed, highly effective Vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is best known as a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I'm a bit disappointed that the original, 240 tablet version of this product is discontinued. Now I need to order two of these smaller bottles instead of a one big bottle. I have ordered several vitamin C products from iHerb but this is by far the best one. I hope that this product won't be discontinued anytime soon as it's absolutely perfect. Besides, I like the fact that this vitamin C is in tablet form instead of a plastic-like capsule.
After a while, the tablets crumbled and became powder! I bought a few bottles too. I think this is due to Singapore's hot & humid climate. The powder spoils the taste of my juice when I try to add to it. Now, I simply take a level teaspoon of the powder, put in my mouth and quickly gulp down with juice.
