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 Phase 2 helps you achieve dietary management objectives without the use of stimulants or laxatives. Phase 2 is an all-natural bean extract that has been shown in non-clinical studies to help reduce the breakdown and absorption of complex carbohydrates, by limiting the action of alpha-amylase, a digestive enzyme. Alpha-amylase helps break down dietary starches into glucose so that they can be absorbed by the digestive tract. With less alpha amylase activity, there may be less excess glucose available to convert into fat and stores as adipose tissue.
As a dietary supplement, take 3 Vcaps before any meal containing complex carbohydrates or starches, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Cellulose (capsule), cellulose powder and gum acacia
Contains no sugar, salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk or preservatives.
Do not eat freshness packet. Keep in bottle.

The Real Deal!

I've tried a lot of snake oils and diet plans on the market but this stuff really works! Much better than the plans that starve you with the small portions the send you. I just eat sensibly and avoid sweets. A PB&J with sugar free jelly (peanut butter has protein which helps counteract the carbs) and it satisfies my "sweet tooth". I've been dropping around 2 lb/week with no special exercising. Just take 3 capsules before eating as recommended and get ready to go shopping for a smaller wardrobe! Very pleased. You gotta try this. I'm adding an additional * to the 5 I already gave this product.
My weight was maintained

I did not put weight on and there was no adverse reactions to them. But no weight loss. I guess you would have to eat alot of carbs to notice a difference. Since I do not maybe thats why I just maintained my weight.
I hope it works

I only use this when I eat too much carbs and exceed my daily caloric intake so I cannot tell you for sure if it works, since I use it very rarely. I sure hope it does work...
Not sure about this one
Posted by Reviewer3329891 on Feb 29, 2012
Not sure yet, have only taken once, and I got acid reflux, but it may or may not have been as a result of this. I read after I bought this product that this product can cause digestive issues, and I already have digestive issues. Had I known that, I probably would not have bought it in the first place. By some, it is said that because it affects an enzymes's ability to digest startches, that some foods may get in the bloodstream and the immune system may act on it as a foreign agent, etc. I think this product needs more research. I will try it again when I eat a lot of starches and see what happens. I have only taken it once.
