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.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of Central Peru. It has been traditionally used for centuries as a food source and as a general energy tonic. More recent scientific research suggests that Maca may help to support a healthy reproductive life for both men and women. Clinical data indicate that Maca does not exert a direct effect on endocrine function.

I've been using this product for 6 months now and it's totally eliminated all menopausal symtoms. Hot flashes, moodiness, tiredness, night-time waking, achy bones, water-retension and lack of energy are all a thing of the past. I have vigor and have a clear CALM mind and Maca is my saving grace. I take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 at early evening and will continue to do so for years to come. The price and quantity beats all others and the speedy shipping is a bonus. Thanks a bunch!

Worth Trying out

I bought this product to try something different for balancing female hormones and potentially help with period pain (which is pretty bad for me and lasts for several days). I had read somewhere that when taking Maca for this purpose you should ideally not be taking any other hormone balancing supplements, because they can interfere with each other. So I went off all my other female supplements and took this alone as an experiment. Started with 1 pill a day for a week, then 1 pill twice a day, morning and evening until my period arrived. Positives: increased energy, no PMS, no hormonal pimples, no breast tenderness or back pain, in fact I experienced absolutely no precursor symptoms of menstruation at all! On the other hand, it gets 4 stars only, because once that time of the month arrived (2 weeks later than usual) it was accompanied by the most extreme pain I've had for years! Even a combination of a strong anti-inflammatory and another painkiller containing both paracetamol and codeine couldn't stop the pain fully. So I was straight back onto my other supplements after that, but sometimes take the Maca as well. Important note: this lengthened my cycle by a bit over 2 weeks, meaning it was around a 6 1/2 week gap between periods. I loved this side effect, as I despise menstruation. But some people don't appreciate this effect, which I've read is quite a common one.

I really like this, iv'e been using Maca pills for over a year now, all of them from NOW company (they're awesome). The only thing i don't like about Maca (GENERALLY - NOT related to Now) is that it sometimes enhances migraines if you don't drink enough water daily and specially before sleep, DO NOT take Maca before sleep, it will give you headache in the morning or while sleeping.
