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.

This product does a great job of keeping my body alkaline. I take it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach as a tea and it give me a very steady and noticeable energy through out the whole day, without the crash at the end of the day as some energy drinks would do. I have noticed enough of a difference to continue to purchase and drink this for a very long time. I searched the web for pricing and Iherb has the absoulte best price on this product.
Nice addition to my hibiscus tea

I drink hot or cold hibiscus tea everyday. I put a tiny spoonful (spoon included in package) of this paste in my tea on days when I do not have a meal with Umeboshi Plum Paste or Umeboshi Plums. I can't say for sure if this improves my health - but I do enjoy the flavors of these plum ingredients.
Eases unsettled tummy

I used to take the balls but decided to give this a try cos it's cheaper. It's not as inconvenient as I thought. Altho it does have to be dissolved in warm water which takes a few extra minutes compared to popping the balls.
The Power of Concentration
Posted by The3Treasures on Dec 11, 2014 | Verified Purchase
I greatly appreciate the quality of concentration that this product demonstrates. What amounts to a drop can deeply color warm water that beautiful plum color AND it can flavor it intensely as well. The taste is astrigent and sour. I enjoy my warm ume plum tisane without sugar. I cannot say that this product alkalinizes my body. I cannot say anything in particular about it other than what I have learned about deeply red/plum colored foods being loaded with anthocyanins (deep pigmented antioxidants) Also it's in the red family and should therefore nourishes the heart and the energy in and around the heart. I believe in the benefits of ume plum just as I believe in the benefits of blueberries, ginger, or watermelon, but I don't get an obvious response just as I may not with these other foods. I don't have trouble with the alkalinity of my body -- I test from time to time. I think it wise to plan to nourish on the energetic level and organ system level, so I seek out products that can keep me healthy. If this food can produce such a deep plum color and great flavor, I am convinced that it has the power of its phytochemicals -- a chemical power -- that can assist me in maintaining my health.
Natural anti acid

I lived with an overly acidic stomach for my entire life. Certain foods will give me a burning stomach that varies from moderately uncomfortable to very painful. A cup of tea made with ume plum concentrate quiets my stomach quickly. If I expect to eat something that will cause distress I can drink the tea ahead of time as a preventative. The effect lasts for hours.
