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.

- Dietary Supplement
In 1984, Thorne was the first dietary supplement manufacturer to introduce zinc picolinate, and Thorne is still the exclusive manufacturer of the trace mineral picolinates – iron, copper, selenium, molybdenum, boron, and vanadium. Picolinic acid is a natural organic acid produced in the body by conversion of the amino acid tryptophan. Found in high concentrations in breast milk, picolinic acid helps in mineral absorption by infants. Studies indicate that mineral picolinates provide superior absorption, even when compared to other "well-absorbed" mineral chelates. Pic-Mins combines the important trace minerals zinc, selenium, manganese, molybdenum, boron, and vanadium, with UltraChrome, Thorne's patented and highly bioavailable chromium complex.
Research on trace minerals has demonstrated their importance in human health. Trace minerals are cofactors for most enzymes in the body and are essential for proper hormone and neurotransmitter function. Deficiencies of specific trace minerals can have an adverse impact on cardiovascular health, bone health, fertility, cognitive health, and immunity. Even mild deficiencies in trace minerals can result in poor growth and development. Many dietary trace minerals are found in fruits and vegetables; however, mineral depletion of the soil has rendered much of the produce we buy deficient in these essential nutrients. Because of these circumstances, supplementation may be indicated.

When minerals are bound to 'Picolinates' it makes them very absorbable, so i like to use them for clients who need extra minerals and have touble with absorption. Often clients with pyrroluria or multiple sensitivities need these types of minerals more than the usual. I like Thorne products becuase they have no nasty excipients/fillers that effect the sensitive. Zinc is an important mineral for the immune system and for hormones and for detoxifying excess copper in Pyroles and when ladies have been using the pill for long term (most oral contaceptives contain copper). Selenium is an important anti-oxidant and is a necessary co-factor for the conversion of T4 to T3 for good thyroid function and is also important for glutathion function to support detoxification Manganese (not magnesium as people often confuse this mineral with) is important for connective tissue health - bones and cartilage glue's, as well as being an important anti-oxidant. Beware that it can be stimulating for some people so best taken in the mornings.. Chromium is good for blood sugar regulation, good for thyroid function and decreases carb cravings. Molybdenum is important for sulfite metabolism and to support the liver to detoxify well. Boron is good for hormones and bone health - helps with the absorption of calcium. Vanadium is essential for normal cell function and for blood sugar regulaton All up the Pic-Mins is a great formulation

Wonderful way to get minerals. It's a tiny pill but I really feel better when I take one ( usually at work with my afternoon snack) I swear it gives me staying power until dinner( perhaps the chromium?) I love getting zinc this way( with other minerals) and no stomach upset. Worth the price. I also take Dr.s Best high absorption Magnesium to round out my mineral profile. We're all unique but these 2 work well for me.
