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.

Norepinephrine and Dopamine are key neurotransmitters for the maintenance of alertness and mental acuity and for promoting a feeling of general well-being. These two neurotransmitters are produced in the body from the amino acid precursors L-Tyrosine and L-Phenylalanine. This conversion process also requires Vitamins C and B-6 as cofactors. NOW True Focus combines these important nutrients with other ingredients like Ginkgo biloba and DMAE to maximize mental agility without any stimulating side effects.
As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules 1 to 2 times daily between meals, or use as directed by a health practitioner. Consider taking these other NOW products: Methyl B-12 and Kava Kava.

I ordered this based on the recommendations by Julia Ross in her "Mood Cure" book. After reading it I realized that I exhibit many of the symptoms therein, brought on by many years of intense stress due to severe marital problems. Prolonged stress takes a heavy toll on the mind and body that isn't easy recovered from without some help. I wasn't interested in the kind of "help" that the typical doctor would recommend. Thankfully, there are natural approaches, like the amino acids in True Focus, which are balanced to, among other things, rejuvenate adrenal function. My adrenals had been under so much stress for so many years that they just weren't functioning right anymore. This meant that I had gotten to the point of not being able to cope with even relatively minor stress anymore. I also had no energy at all, which was especially pronounced in the morning. I compensated with coffee which, according to Julia Ross, is the worst possible remedy (caffeine is terrible for healthy brain chemistry). I've tried giving up coffee before, but was never successful. With a couple True Focus first thing upon arising, and then a couple more mid-morning, I have energy now that I haven't experienced in twenty years! My mood is vastly improved. I can cope with stress now. I'm no longer dragging and fatigued (no need for an afternoon nap). True Focus has made a huge improvement in the quality of my life. Highly recommended.

I've ordered True Focus several times. It works. It focuses and sharpens me, which puts me into a pretty good mood, too. I usually take it with Jarrow Formulas' Brainboost and some vinpocetine. Taken alone, the effect falls short, but that has been my experience with every brain enhancement supplement I've tried, so that's not a criticism. it's just a heads up, if you're new, to not expect any one capsule to be enough. YMMV
Good for breaking out of the fog.

I have an issue with dissociation where often, I feel like an outsider looking in on my life. It feels like my head is stuck in a "fog," sometimes for days at a time. I was desperate to try anything, so I bought True Focus (in addition to St. John's Wort) several months ago and started taking them regularly, and I was fairly sure I noticed a difference. I felt more present in my own head and my anxiety lessened. I felt more comfortable, and conversation became easier. I work with teenagers, and keeping up energy levels felt much easier when I took the True Focus. I wasn't entirely sure if the supplements were helping, but when I ran out a little over a month ago, I surely noticed the difference. I re-purchased and am already feeling better. This surely isn't a cure-all to feelings of anxiety or dissociation, but I can say that I'm surprised as to how much this does work.

For minor ADHD sydrome, it's helpful. But sometimes may be too strong. For my experience, age 36, 176 pound, Asian female, only have to use once in every two days. When using once a day, some other syndromes might show up like restless, aggressive attitude, or too focus.

I have been taking these for about 2 weeks in the morning on an empty stomach. The first week i took 2 a day & noticed i would get irritable! So went down to one a day & feel better. I got these for the tyrosine (precursor to dopamine), phenylalanine & cofactors hoping it would help my depression but i havent noticed much difference yet. (I am on SSRIs which apparently deplete dopamine). I have noticed a slight improvement in energy. I will continue to take them & hope i will feel more improvement.
