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.

As we age, hydrochloric acid and digestive enzyme secretion both decline; there is a natural need to replenish the body's digestive enzymes. Add to that the many additional factors - poor eating habits, inadequate chewing, “eating on the run”, and over-consumption of alcohol - that contribute to digestive problems. Essential Enzymes is highly effective because it is a Bio-Aligned™ formula that contains a wide array of enzymes that break down proteins, fats, milk sugars, fiber, and carbohydrates in a wide pH range. It aids the body's natural digestive process, maximizing the body's utilization of the nutrients in the diet while decreasing digestive discomforts. Essential Enzymes is now available in convenient blister packs that can be used for meals outside the home

iHerb Customer Reviews
I was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last year which had taken over a good part of my body with skin lesions. I was prescribed UVB light treatments by my MD, but my daughter also suggested taking enzymes as they have been used in medical centers around the US. I started taking these enzymes and within weeks my skin lesions started to improve. I did the light treatments as ordered, but the best part is the improvement I saw, and my MD saw as well. He allowed me to cut back on the tx, thinking the lesions might return, but they have not and my skin is all healed and my blood tests returned to normal. I intend to take these enzymes the rest of my days. My MD is amazed!
I got seriously food poisoned five years ago, and ever since, my digestion has been a mess. I couldn't eat anything containing milk, grain or sugar without getting really ill. After a while, I would react to every kind of food, and my body was getting really weak. I tried all kinds of treatment, but none of them really worked, and it was incredibly expensive. I saw this article about a girl that had the same problems, and she explained that she had too few of the digesting enzymes. I looked it up on iHerb, and read the reviews. After using this product before every meal, I can now eat what I want without getting seriously ill. Of course, all is relative, and I don't stuff my face with bread every day, but this product helps my stomach and I don't experience pain after eating any more. Would recommend taking this product together with probiotics if you have the same problems as me.
