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.

Now L-Lysine is a Pharmaceutical Grade essential amino acid.
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that must be obtained through the diet or through supplementation. Lysine is necessary for the production of all proteins in the body, and is required for the maintenance of the structural proteins collagen and elastin, which form all connective tissue such as skin, tendon, and bone. L-Lysine is also a precursor to L-carnitine, which is needed for fat metabolism and energy production. In addition, L-Lysine may help to support a healthy immune system and proper cardiovascular function.

I am constantly amazed at the number of healthcare people (i.e. doctors, etc.) who are unaware of the almost magical qualities of L-Lysine! This particular brand is the best I've ever found, as its capsule composition is so easy to swallow--unlike the chalky, over-sized tablets. They help in weight loss, speed healing of canker & cold sores, the list goes on--a must for anyone undergoing chemotherapy.

Excellent against cold sores

I take three of these a day and if I cut back I start getting cold sores. As long as I take it I'm fine.
Not suitable for vegetarians/vegans
Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 25, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I was disappointed to receive this product and see that they were in a gelatin capsule. Particularly that the higher dosage lysine is in a vegetable capsule. As a vegetarian I haven't taken it. I have loved all the now foods products that I have purchased in the past, all of which until now were suitable for vegetarians.
Helps me with Burning Mouth Syndrome
Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 11, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I bought this large size because I was struggling with Burning Mouth Syndrome for over a decade and nothing helped it. That is, until I heard about L-Lysine, and while I had been taking it in smaller doses, I heard that someone had found relief when they used 3000 mg a day, in 3 divided doses of 1000 mg each. So I upped my dose to 1000 mg at breakfast, lunch and dinner. It worked! My burning mouth syndrome settled down within a day or two! I continued to take it and find relief, and then slowly started forgetting to take it and BAM, the burning mouth would come back. So I have to stay on this pretty much consistently to have a good quality of life, and this size is the right price and quantity. I am so thankful for this product.
