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.

L-Leucine is an essential amino acid, specifically classified as a "branched-chain amino acid" (BCAA). BCAAs, especially leucine, stimulate muscle protein synthesis and may be the major fuel involved in anabolic reactions. This makes them especially important for body builders and other athletes in sports that demand explosive strength.

Noticing some positive effects
Noticing some positive effects
Like other reviewers here have reported, this is not a pleasant-tasting powder, nor does it mix well with liquids. However, it does what it's purported to do~ enhance protein synthesis and maintain lean body mass, especially when cutting calories and/or restricting carbs. I take 1-2 teaspoons a day, along with 1-2 scoops (5 grams) of standardized BCAA powder a day. I have definitely noticed some positive effects. Neither powder tastes particularly good, but I have no problem taking it off the spoon, then chasing it with juice, or something like Ola Loa. If taste is a problem, I'd recommend getting the capsules.
