Expiration Date:Expiration Date
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.

Works for me
Works for me
I've had on and off depression for 5 years now. It was a little over a year ago that the depression came back along with anxiety and for over a year now I've been having constant depression + anxiety and for anyone that experiences daily 'body low' feelings along with chest tightness, it's unbearable and very stressful on the mind + body. I chose not to go on antidepressants years ago, even when it was highly suggested by doctors that I start taking antidepressants I refused. I decided to give St Johns Wort a try and that did help but I had to stop taking it, due to complications. I decided to give 5-htp a shot and first tried the NOW FOODS brand after hearing / reading so many positive reviews about 5-htp itself and I tried it for over a month and my friend also tried it with me but we both experienced the same effects... up moods followed by comedowns. I didn't want to give up on 5htp as I really wanted to believe that it did work, like it did for many others. I started taking this brand for a month and started to notice the effects after a few weeks. I was able to handle my emotions much better and the anxiety / depression lifted and it was so so relieving to finally feel 'normal' again after dealing with terrible daily anxiety / depression for over a year, untreated. A few weeks ago I started skipping the the 5-htp, due to forgetting and probably feeling too good to realize that I still needed it. Quite unexpectedly, I started to feel anxious again and the depression came back and I was confused and feeling like I did before, a feeling I didn't want to experience again. I started taking the 5-htp immediately and after a few days I lost the anxiety and depression and now I am feeling calm. I don't usually write reviews but from my experience, I really want others to give this product a try if they are wondering whether they should or not. The NOW FOODS brand did absolutely nothing for me, but this works wonders and I can't tell you how good it feels to feel calm and to have a positive outlook. If this brand doesn't work for you, try another brand. But I can say that this brand is excellent, and works for ME. Life changing.

It is Saving my life

I needed serotonin and couldn't go to the doctor in my area so this stuff is saving me from a very bad depression. I have moderate to severe depression, and chronic fatigue and have been recommending it to my friends and blog readers. Thank you so much for making this product, it really does help me feel like I am young and alive again.
A few weeks in and noticeable improvements

Have been taking 1 capsule before sleep in combination with Natrol and Dopa Macuna over the course of the day. Can report a noticeable upswing in overall mood and feel like I've been sleeping a lot more deeply, waking up more refreshed each day. I haven't felt as tired as well towards the end of the day and am sleeping less but definitely getting a much deeper rest. Generally speaking, I feel more like my 'former self' and less on edge and feel much less negativity/anxiety, and much more engaged and levelled out.
Jury still out...

I only used the smallest amount of this product by pulling the capsule apart, and I have to say within and hour or so I felt a definite up-surge in mood, it made me feel quite talkative and perky, however I felt a down-turn the next day, so I used it some more and got the same effect, so I will give it a break and try again and just see if I get the same re-action. Perhaps this product will have a different effect on each individual and will vary a lot from person to person, so it is not black and white when it comes to reviewing it, I'm glad I didn't take a whole capsule, might have been bouncing off the walls :)

Have been taking these in combination with NAC and other vitamin supplements for major depression and anxiety with great results after only 2 weeks. No side effects to date. Would recommend.
Not for me

Sadly this supplement, which I was trying to help with my depression symptoms, made me quite sick to my stomach. Which in turn made me more unhappy. I hope it works for others. I was disappointed.
