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.

I have depression and anxiety, no medications ever helped me, so I decided to try such natural remedies and bought this product, I took one capsule daily, didn't notice any difference, now taking two before bed and still the same results, I haven't notice any improvement in mood but I sleep longer now, I don't think I will try it again.

My Experience with 5htp. Honestly worst experience of my life, I'll start with the Negatives. First week 100mg for 2 days, WOW knocked me out, felt like I was on drugs, so drowsy & grogy, YUCK! Day 3 50mg still drowsy & in fairy land. DEPRESSED & crying spells like never before. Day 4-8 25mg. I took this at night on an empty stomach before bed. Day 4 worst Abdominal pain in my life, My stomach bloated, making me look 6 months pregnant. The cramps were unbearable, So so painful! Unfortunately the only positves for myself were it helped my bowel movements, I slept like a baby & dreams were so Vivid. 5 Htp is going straight in the bin were in belongs!

I am on ADD meds and sometimes the crash in the evening brings on severe melancholy, anxiety and depression like you wouldn't believe. I pop one of these suckers with vitamin b6 and l-tyrosine to replenish the seratonin, norepinephrine and epinephrine that my stimulant depletes and boom, crash is gone. This helps me get through my nights and continue to be a functioning house wife. I can also stop taking it with no withdrawal symptoms like an SSRI would give me. Side effects are facial flushing but it's not really bothersome. Totally worth it!
