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.

- Easy 3 Capsules Daily Dosing
Methylation – the addition of a methyl group (CH4 – one carbon attached to three hydrogens) to another molecule – is an essential and vital biochemical process within the human body that is involved in a large number of biochemical pathways involving neurotransmitters, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health, bone health, and redox balance. A number of specific nutrients are necessary for methylation to occur normally.
Methyl-Guard Plus contains higher amounts of 5MTHF (the active form of folate), pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active B6), and methylcobalamin (active B12), than our original Methyl-Guard. We have also added riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2) for its positive effect on homocysteine metabolism and methylation. These ingredients provide the necessary nutrients the body uses to push forward the process of methylation. Methyl-Guard Plus is more concentrated, so your patients will appreciate the recommended daily amount of three capsules, which will improve compliance. Our original Methyl-Guard is still available.
Take 1-3 capsules daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, calcium citrate, calcium laurate.
Tamper evident: Use only if bottle is sealed.
If pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner before using this product.

I am taking this supplement along with others to help with methylation and reduce homocysteine. My homocysteine blood tests have improved from 13.7 down to 6.1 (optimum range) but I also used L-Serine (the Amino Acid NOT Phosphatidyl Serine) This supplement contains the L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate (5MTHF) form of Folate which I can take I DO NOT TAKE FOLIC ACID as I have the C677T Methyl Folate Reductase enzyme genetic mutation (MTHFR) Due to this mutation the folate cycle is impaired in my metabolism so folic acid does not convert to 5-Metyl-tetra-hydro-folate (5MTHF)

I have been taking these capsules for health reasons and my doctor recommended IHerb and the brand. Since taking them I feel much better and I know they work.

Fantastic product for people diagnosed with MTFHR gene, and beats taking multiple folinic acid tablets each day, only one is needed
Is anybody out there?

I won't do reviews for iHerb, until someone from iHerb follows up my one and only complaint about a delivery that I received recently which did not contain all the items that I ordered (and had paid for). Regards, Robert Boscarato
MTHFR mutation... no worries

If you have a serious methylation issue this should be your go to product for fixing it. Diet alone won't cut it. The recommended dose is three caps but I find that's too much if taken daily. I take one in the morning and one at night. Keeps my moods stable and energy levels stable. Basically if you have a MTHFR gene mutation issue and you want to return to a nice "average" then take this stuff.
