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.

Each woman's experience with menopause is different. While many women have only a few problems, others find this phase of life extremely difficult and troubling. Menopausal symptoms are often experienced years before the menstrual cycle ends, during what is known as the perimenopausal period. This may last for as long as 10 years, starting most commonly when a woman is in her early-to-mid 40s.
Because of both the short-term side effects and the long-term health issues associated with conventional hormone replacement therapy, many women desire a more natural approach to allaying some of the unpleasant aspects of menopause. Lifestyle changes can help alleviate some of these uncomfortable conditions. For example, increasing aerobic exercise can reduce hot flashes and improve sleep, while reducing consumption of spicy foods and alcohol may also help reduce hot flashes. In addition, a number of herbs and dietary supplements have been found to be of great benefit during menopause.
Designed to be taken in addition to the multiple vitamin-mineral Meta-Fem, Meta-Balance is a botanical formula designed to help manage the normal ebbing of hormones associated with menopause, which can result in hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia, night sweats, and poor memory. Wild yam, black cohosh, Vitex, and dong quai support the natural decrease in female hormone production. Black cohosh and dong quai have potential estrogenic properties. Vitex appears to have a stimulating effect on the ovaries. Progesterone production decreases throughout menopause; wild yam provides natural progesterone-like substances. Hesperidin methyl chalcone (HMC) is known for its antioxidant properties as well as its ability to strengthen capillaries. It is also known to stabilize vasomotor activity associated with menopausal hot flashes.

I stumbled across this by accident when my daughter bought the wrong Thorne product. After I started taking them, I maybe got 1-3 hot flashes per month. Before, I would easily get 10+ PER WEEK! This is an amazing product to regulate menopause symptoms!!!
Not for me

I gave this product 3 months to 'kick in' but there was no relief to my symptoms. I still use other Thorne products though.
It was ok not the best for me

I used the whole bottle up was taking vitex before but it was suggested to me to try this. Overall it was not bad and I followed what the bottle said with how much to take and when. I just didn't find this worked as well for me as taking vitex did so I'm going back to taking vitex I felt overall better with the vitex. With this, I felt a bit all over emotionally must of the time while on it and it didn't seem to help keep my skin clear and in nicer condition than normal. It was not bad did help somewhat but I need more help then it seemed to give me.

It is certainly good for those who need it, but not for me. It gave too strong influence on my hormones. I have ME and do not tolerate certain substances, and this contribution did not work on me.

I have only been using it for one month and have noticed a decrease in PMS symptoms especially mood. Still have that terrible bloating a week before.
