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.

It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body. The current recommended daily vitamin D intake of 200-600 IU for adults is based on the minimum allowance to protect against bone disease. However, an upward revision of the FDA's guideline is now under consideration in light of new research, especially pertaining to immune function. Although direct sunlight exposure is a good source of vitamin D, many people do not get enough sun due to season change, latitude, or lifestyle. Therefore, vitamin D supplementation can be of great benefit in these cases.
The Vitamin D Council (VDC) is a non-profit organization of medical professionals, vitamin D researchers, and concerned citizens whose goal is to educate professionals and the public on vitamin D deficiency and its associated health risks. The VDC recommends an average of 5,000 IU/day vitamin D for adults. Better yet, they suggest testing 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and dosing accordingly. Ideal blood levels should fall between 50-80 ng/mL.
Infants should not receive more than 400 IU/day, which is the daily dose of vitamin D supplement that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends for breast-fed and partially breast-fed infants.
Thorne Research's Vitamin D Liquid is in a base of medium chain triglyceride oil, preserved with mixed tocopherols.
Take 2 drops one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner. Invert bottle to dispense individual drops. May be added to food or mixed in beverages.
Medium chain triglycerides oil, mixed tocopherols.

For Lyme Disease
For Lyme Disease
Extremely fast absorption and effective product. However, if you don't find the idea of taking a few drops of oil on your tongue, as it is in an oil base, then you may not like this product; it is not unbearable though. For most supplementation purposes a total of 5000 IU per day is usually recommended which is equivalent to 10 drops. In Lyme, Vitamin D is absolutely essential to healing the illness and without it the healing process can take up to 50% longer. If you are depleted in this vitamin you may want to gradually increase the amount as it will stimulate the immune system and cause die-off and the Herxheimer reaction. ***Feel free to visit my page for my other reviews on Lyme disease related products***
Made from lanolin and GM foods

I bought this before really researching how Vitamin D is sourced. I emailed the company and they told me "Vitamin D is made from cholesterol that originally came from sheep lanolin. Mixed Tocopherols are primarily soybean, along with corn, canola and sunflower. Medium chain triglyceride oil is from palm oil." I would not recommend buying this product as lanolin is clearly toxic with all the chemicals they spray on the sheep and also the soybean, corn and canola is all genetically modified! I thought Thorne would have a better product than this. I just recently bought the Garden of Life Vitamin D3 which seems a much better product as it is plant-sourced vitamin D from: https://au.iherb.com/pr/Garden-of-Life-Vitamin-Code-RAW-D3-5-000-IU-60-Vegetarian-Capsules/39195?rcode=NAT9730

I was very low in Vit D. After taking this my Vit D is now in a normal range.
Top quality, except for the new bottle
Posted by Reviewer2812572 on Jan 31, 2017
Thorne have recently changed the bottles for this product. It used to come in a dropper bottle and that worked great for me. Now the bottle is like the bottles used for essential oils and it's a struggle to get the drops out of it. What I do now is, I use their old dropper bottle, but transferring the liquid is a bit of a hassle. Also, the photo shown on iherb as of this writing is still of the old dropper bottle, so buyer beware.
Very poor quality bottle
Posted by discountcoupon on Oct 01, 2016
So I'll believe that Thorne makes quality supplements. But the bottle is so piss poor that BOTH the bottles I ordered (different times) went bust after a few times use. So then you are stuck with vitamine D going rancid while you buy expensive topquality. Not cool! So I will not order this again. PS: I am an official holistic therapist / orthomolecular schooled.
