This product is highly perishable and is kept refrigerated to ensure maximum freshness. iHerb ships this product in an iced, insulated package in order to preserve its potency while in transit. To ensure freshness while in transit, iHerb does not ship this product Thursday thru Sunday. We do not ship during these days to reduce the time the product resides in a non-refrigerated environment (e.g. truck or warehouse). If your order is not placed during the first part of the week, it will be held to the following Monday. Alternatively if you place your order by noon Pacific on Thursday and select a next-day shipping method, your order will be processed for delivery on Friday.
International Customers: For several reasons (e.g. customs review, weight of packaging, potential of leaking), iHerb is unable to send this product in an iced, insulated package to destinations outside the United States. While you may order this product (subject to country import laws), we strongly recommend that you purchase a stabilized form as a substitute.

Product is great; iherb packaging is NOT. iherb does NOT use dry ice to pack this product; they use regular ice packs from freezer and a small styrofoam packaging (product and ice pack inside the styrofoam). In the summer time and hot temperatures, it takes very little time for the ice pack to return to normal temperature and therefore does not protect the product in shipping. I have shopped iherb for numerous years and will continue to do so, but am very disappointed in the packaging of this type product. Will not buy this item from iherb again.
