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 been using this on and off for several years to maintain my weight and prevent overeating. It works very well. To the new users I would say this: give it a couple of weeks to kick in. It needs to build up in your system. Also, it isn't a stimulant or a metabolism booster or anything like that. It's a straight appetite suppressant, nothing more. And it's not a miracle pill, but it does work. If that's what you need, this may fit the bill. Because there haven't been (to my knowledge) any conclusive studies about the long term effects of hoodia on the human body, my choice is to use with caution. I cycle on and off frequently and I also take it with milk thistle (a known liver protectant and purifier) just in case. I do like the fact that I haven't built a tolerance to it and that it doesn't cause things like jitters, high blood pressure or heart issues--which is often the case with other diet supplements. This works for me. And I'll probably keep using it. NOW products have never been a disappointment.

I have used Mega Hoodia for years. I use it to fast for roughly 36 hours at a time, from dinner 6-7pm the day before all the way until 6 am the day after. I take 3 pills at a time, hourly or as needed to fight appetite pangs. I normally fast one day a week to maintain my weight and 2 days a week, not consecutive, if I am dieting. Before Hoodia, if I fasted i would inevitably get stomach cramps. Not so, with the use of this product.
Waste of money

Did not notice a reduction in appetite, even taking 4 capsules at a time. Will not buy again.

It only came with 60 tabs, so I took less to make it last longer. I did feel less hungry while taking these- at one point I was hungry at work so I popped in two of them, and minutes later the hunger pangs went away for hours. These definitely help if one is making a serious effort to eat less. However, I noticed that after two weeks or so, the efficacy of them faded a bit, though I still continued to take them. I also did experience some nightly gas pains for most of the duration in which I took them, but it wasn't enough to stop me from taking them daily. I finished the bottle, and will most likely purchase them again. I wish more came in the bottle.

While traveling I bought hoodia and it worked. When I ran out and couldn't find the same brand I tried NOW. At first I thought it wasn't working, then before giving up I tried 2 capsules and it was effective, although not as long as the orginal brand I tried. NOW has always been a great brand for all my other suppliments - but they should read the reviews and change their directions from "1 or 2" when their serving size is "2". I only had to take 1 of the other brand.
