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.

Fighting chronic infections is a problem that has become more and more difficult with which to deal. Scientists worldwide are now seeing microorganisms as evolved, complex colonies that have developed unique and intricate ways to survive. We all are supposed to have normal, healthy, symbiotic flora growing in our GI tract that helps us fight off pathogens and allergens. When the balance of good bugs and bad bugs is disrupted, our immune system cannot function optimally and chronic infections and allergy issues may ensue.
Seventy percent of our immune system resides in our gut. When our immune system is weak, pathogens find a way to set up residence in our body and GI tract. In order to evade the immune system and survive in a hostile, toxic environment, these bugs produce a slimy substance called biofilm. This biofilm surrounds and protects the bad bugs like an impenetrable fortress allowing them to thrive and reproduce. As they reproduce, they continue to produce their toxic byproducts that may have detrimental effects on the health of the host without the host even realizing the bugs are there.
Recently, scientists have discovered ways to penetrate these pathogenic biofilms and expose the bad bugs underneath. They have discovered the composition of most biofilms consists of sugar molecules or polysaccharides, minerals (such as calcium, iron and magnesium), DNA and fibrin. Some studies have shown that by using enzymes that potentially degrade components of the pathogenic biofilm, infections in the lungs, sinuses and wounds are easier to clear.
Biofilm Defense contains a combination of unique enzymes that have the ability to dissolve the sugar and fibrin components of most pathogenic biofilms. Because it lacks any significant amount of protease, which can irritate a sensitive GI tract.
Biofilm Defense can be taken on an empty stomach. In fact, it may be recommended by clinicians to use this product on an empty stomach followed by appropriate natural or pharmaceutical antimicrobials that target a specific bug or bugs.
As always, it is recommended that any holistic program targeting the GI tract include quality enzymes, probiotics, prebiotics, and nutrients that help to rebuild and heal the gut lining and allow our symbiotic flora and natural biofilm to become restored.

Recommend by GP for my acne. Nothing was working, antibiotics, antibiotic creams, vitamin A, zinc, diet changes, many other things have been tried and tested over the past 12 months. However the only thing to work is Biofilm, for me to really know that it was working I stopped after my first course. After a few weeks my acne was slowly started appearing again. Now I have gone on my second lot and my acne is now going down.

I am taking this as part of a gut bacteria protocol. After doing a Bioscreen test, the results came back with exceedingly high levels of Streptococcus bacteria and virtually no Lactobacillus or E coli. I'm taking probiotics for the latter two and Biofilm Defense and Ampicllin for the strep. So far I've managed to reduce my strep levels by 80%, a huge amount. Feeling so much better, more emotionally stable and can eat a wider variety of food without gas, cramping and passing awful stool.

She was having trouble with antibiotic resistant uti. This helped her. Update: My daughter has not had a recurrence of her uti. I do believe this helped.

Have had long running (15 years) post chemotherapy chronic fungal infection of intestine and stomach. After 3 weeks of biofilm together with anti fungal drugs, boating had spotted, and the "clawing " sensations have stopped Hopefully I will eventually be able to stop the antifungal drug.
