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.

Kava provides excellent anxiety and stress relief with minimal drowsiness or dulling of the thought process. This formula contains eleuthero (formerly called Siberian Ginseng, although it's actually not in the same genus as ginseng), which I find energizing without jitters. I've found the Now extract to be the most consistently potent of the Kava supplements I've used.
Dangerous for me

This is not a rating of Now's quality as I know it's great, but a rating of Kava Kava supplement (which I bought from Now's). This is toxic from me, it certainly has a nice relaxing effect but it also made me sick, I felt a mild pain in the left side of my abdomen and I urinated very dark, so I think it was hard to the liver. I have to say I tend to drink regularly, so I know I shouldn't take Kava Kava.
Doesn't do much for me

I've been taking these for about 3 weeks and they really don't do anything noticeable for me. I know there's a reverse tolerance for Kava Kava and that it might take a few weeks before you start to feel the effects easily, but it's been 3 weeks already. One capsule does nothing. Not even 2 does anything. If I prepare some warm milk and empty 4 capsules into it, mix it, and drink that, and do it again (8 capsules) I feel somewhat calm and undestracted by thoughts. But 1 or 2 capsule of L-theanine, Gaba, or "True Calm" formula does that much better. Kava might be better consumed as a carefully prepared drink than as a capsule.
definitely feel the difference

I am long-term sufferer od social phobia and ocd, I've thrown away antidepressants years ago and stick to the nutritional plan. I have my favorite supplements that I take on daily basis and this is one of them. The key is to build a combination that will calm you down and stimultaneously tonify whole body. For me this is the only way. Consider it as a journey to better youself

It makes me sleep a lot better.. I take it if I can't get a long night sleep because I don't need to sleep as many hours for the same rest...Would recommend this to people who work in different shifts
Kava Brings Peace
