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.

Omega-3 fatty acids are categorized as essential fatty acids because humans must get them from food or supplementation; i.e., they can’t be made from other substances in the body. The essential omega-3 fatty acids from fish, EPA and DHA, are beneficial for the cardiovascular system. They support good circulation by promoting healthy blood vessels, enhancing blood flow by optimizing vascular endothelial function, and maintaining already normal triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are also supportive of healthy brain function. EPA and DHA are important throughout adulthood, as well as during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development. Dietary supplementation with DHA and EPA has proven beneficial for a number of the known higher mental functions.
Super EPA (an EPA/DHA-containing fish oil supplement) has been one of Thorne Research's best-selling products for over two decades because of its exceptional purity and quality. Recent technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules. Super EPA provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available. Molecular distillation is utilized to ensure the removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

I've been taking these fish caps for years - they are excellent. They are easy to swallow and have no fishy after taste. I take 2 a day and they seem to help out my dry skin in the winter months ...
Duty charges if ordering from Canada

Made the mistake and ordered from iherb instead of Canadian websites. Thought I was saving a big whopping $2.50 versus some of the Canadian websites not knowing that this is coming from the States and iherb doesn't have a Canadian division. They show the Canadian flag and a Canadian website but do not make it known that their supplements are coming from the states and Canadians will be hit with duty charges. I ended up paying an additional $12.50 at the post office to receive my package. Definitely not worth it and you're better off buying from within the country. Won't be ordering from iHerb ever again, they should be covering the duty charges in the advertised price like many other online stores do. Be more transparent in the actual cost. However, the expiry date on the pills were good. I quit ordering from Amazon.ca because they have a 3 month expiry date policy so they often give you old supplements that expire in 3 months.
This is the ONE!

I have developed a negative reaction to supplements over that last few years... even fish oil. My naturopath recommended Thorne's because of it's purity. I have been SO pleased with it. I have not had ANY negative reactions since taking it, but all the benefits! Thank-you Thorne!
It definitively works for me

This is saving my life!!! I'm serious. I have to take up to 4 capsules. Without this product I have: unbearable feeling in my stomach constant heartburn, nausea, tremor, hypoglycemia, migraines, too much adrenaline and sympatetic overload, sleep issue, uncontrollable rage, severe anxiety and depression and my neurotransmitters are totally messed up. With this product I feel NORMAL and calm. No hypoglycemia, no hearburn and normal digestion. It's a miracle for me! I probably have Crohn's disease or ulcerose colitis or both. I have positive ASCA, ANCA, antibodies against the gastric mucosa etc.
Hard to compare

As this was my first try-out with fish-oil, I can't compare. But I found that at least I had no difficulties with smell (quite odourless) or taste (very mild taste overall). The capsules are big, and therefore usage is not as pleasant as I hoped. As said, I haven't used any other fish-oil product, but having seen other capsules I can say that if a rich, golden colour tells anything, this is what I want to go for.
