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.

Glycine is the smallest and simplest amino acid, making it versatile for use in a wide range of functions. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione, DNA, creatine, bile, hemoglobin, and most proteins. It also helps to promote glycogen storage, thereby making glucose readily available for energy production. Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses and is important for the maintenance of healthy sleep patterns.
Take 1/4 - 3/4 level teaspoon daily mixed in water or juice, preferably on an empty stomach.

Excellent Sleep Aide
Excellent Sleep Aide
I have read the other reviews. I agree with someone who wrote that having a scoop inside would make his day, funny..... Not many have mentioned how this is a fantastic sleep aide. I read about it's use in a Lyme Disease book, (the 13 top LLMD's), one LLMD wrote to use 1-3 mg of melatonin 1 hour before bed with 2-4 grams of glycine at bed time and again 2-4 grams if you awaken during the night one time. I have tried EVERYTHING, with some exaggeration, to try and fall back asleep, and this brand of glycine, in powder form has been the only natural product that has worked as well as prescription drugs. With it's use and my MD's help I am able to ween off of Klonopin from 1 mg now down to .5 mg, slow going but with it's withdrawl effects I must go slow. So this has been a real life saver for me, no exaggeration, without it I would have had to stay on the klonopin and did not want to continue that route. 4 years of it was enough... Hats off to I-herb for it's fast and easy service.....

It has now been well over a year since I started taking the three listed supplements below, I have also just returned from 4 months in Europe, its now been roughly 10 months since I have taken any of the these supplements - I can say without a doubt I have healed my body of every single god damn issue that has ever plagued me since I was a child. I grew up with breathing issues that never seemed to go away, as an I grew up I also had major gut issues. that I had to cut out all wheat, gluten, rice and soy. I tried every single thing over from going vegetarian to vegan and even RAW! yes some of my symptoms stopped however! my body never healed itself this trial and error has taken well over 10 long years some very very depressing being unable to function as normal human being I felt very isolated especially as a man, hopeless, lost and confused in my suffering I tried so many different things and so called remedies nothing worked or it did to a degree but nothing on this level. I was unable to process most foods properly, as I never ate anything that had sufficient amounts of Glycine in it at young age the gut and overall body health had no chance of reaching a state of optimum health. Due to my underlying gut issues I had a severe allergic reaction to rice and soy this led my body to break out in rashes and my skin would literally be burning from the inside out like I was being stung a million and one times over and over again It took me over 6 years to realise the connection to the the rice and soy and my gut! and that was just the beginning… Along with that, I was also unable to consume dairy in any form without having major breathing issues or my body reacting badly along with my debilitating lower back pain whenever I ate anything containing wheat or gluten I was a total mess and had no idea why!! the doctors had no idea and everyone thought I was crazy! scratching my burning skin like total drug user anytime I got too warm or stressed out, unable to breath properly, dazed and sleep walking all day, and don’t get me started on going to the toilette , it was a total nightmare. That was until I came across this article from Ray Peat - http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/gelatin.shtml that lead me to the connection between glycine and our GUT! I can now say with total conviction that I am healed of every single damn issue I had. I’ve thoroughly tested myself as a ginie pig over the last 10 months eating nothing but bread and cheese in FRANCE! pasta whatever, you name it I had it, with no regression in the slightest!. I truly believe our gut is the key to complete health. I have to say once I started seeing results, and let me tell you they came so fast within the first few weeks I was blown away. I have researched my heart out over the last 10 plus years and I can say that the following 3 supplements have completely given my life to me. Yes I felt so angry and felt I had my teens taken from me, just because of the lack of ah SIMPLE understanding of the gut and what it requires! I am now 30 years young and feel like Im living inside of a body that I should of had from day one. Regarding my intake of all three products I stuck to a strict intake of each every single day without fail, I took more if I need it, as I was doing heavy weight training 5 to 6 days a week I was able to see how quickly my body reacted and what effect they had before, during and after. After never being able to put on weight as child or an adult easy that all changed once my gut was able to digest and absorb all the nutrients. I also felt rapid strength increase in my lifting ability and much quicker recovery times within the gym as my uptake of nutrients and healing rich protein “glycine” and my overall body health. I hope this helps even one person as I have struggled with the thought of even writing a review that did these BASIC and simple products justice, I am a true believer in that simple things should and will do the trick! that was confirmed in the past year… Side note - I was unable to take the collagen at the very start due to a massive histamine response which entailed me breaking out so I started with the pure glycine until my gut was able to process everything. Morning Intake - 2 digestive tables Intake - 1 to 2 teaspoon of pure glycine in a Hot tea Intake - 1 to 2 tablespoons of collagen in HOT tea I combined both as the sugary taste of the pure glycine offset the collagen. Midday Intake - 2 to 3 digestive tables Intake - 1 teaspoon pure glycine Intake - 2 tablespoons collagen Night Intake - 2 digestive tables Intake - 1 to 2 teaspoon of pure glycine in a Hot tea Intake - 1 to 2 tablespoons of collagen in HOT tea I combined both as the sugary taste of the pure glycine offset the collagen.

Helps w/ sleep
Posted by Reviewer1597205 on Aug 24, 2016
This really seems to help w/ sleep for 2 of us who struggle. My only concern is that I read online that taking individual amino acids could tax the liver and/or kidneys so I will be talking to a practitioner about this.
