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.

Iron is an essential trace mineral found in most human cells. It is an important component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to all tissues of the body and promotes iron rich blood. It plays a role in normal red blood cell production and supports energy utilization. Iron requirements increase during growth, pregnancy and menstruation. Iron nutritionally supports women's health and is a cofactor required for the synthesis of brain neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin.
As a dietary supplement for adults, take one (1) vegetable capsule daily, preferably with a meal or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

Since due to my anemia I must take 3 pills a day I've tried a few brands and I prefer these iron pills over all others as they do not upset my stomach or cause constipation. These were recommended by my doctor.

Raised my ferritin in a month!
Posted by iHerb Customer on February 18 2018 | Verified Purchase
I had trouble raising my ferritin when I have been taking 2 caps of Gentle Iron per day with food. It did not improve AT ALL. But then I changed my routine and in 1 month my level went from 19 ng/ml to 41! Here's what I did: I started taking 4 caps of Gentle Iron in the morning on an empty stomach with orange juice, 300mg of vitamin C, 3mg of vitamin B2 and 500mg of l-lysine. All these have been shown to increase iron absorption. Carotenoids from orange increase iron absorption, but fiber decreases it, so juice is probably better than whole fruit. Calcium decreases iron absorption. The amount in 1dl (half glass) of juice should be ok, but make sure that juice doesn't have extra calcium added. Also, don't drink milk or eat any dairy for 12 hours after taking iron pills, as the calcium in dairy can interfere with iron absorption. Eggs also interfere with iron absorption. I simply didn't eat them for a month.
So far so good

Is indeed gentle on stomach. Not sure yet if working for me but seems to be.
