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.

Vitamin C is best known as an antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals. NOW AlphaSorb-C includes Transport C-Plus, a trademarked combination of Threonic Acid-enhanced, buffered (non-acidic) Calcium Ascorbate with Alpha Lipoic Acid. Threonic Acid is Vitamin C metabolite that has been shown to enhance cellular uptake of Vitamin C. Alpha Lipoic Acid functions as a free radical scavenger that can help regenerate Vitamin C in the body and may also enhance its utilization. With this unique formula, NOW has created a well-absorbed and highly biologically available Vitamin C supplement.

I'm currently doing chelation to remove mercury and lead from my body. This AlphaSorb-C helps this process for me (confirmed with muscle testing). I find that I tolerate esterified vitamin C better than ascorbic acid, and I like the other synergistic ingredients in this supplement. Good price too. But I wish it came in a tablet as well as Vcaps.

This product is unbelievable! I have a friend who has 8 children and they are never sick. I have one son and he was always sick with colds and allergies and he reacted poorly to allergy medication. One day I asked my friend how her children stayed so healthy. She told me about this product and I've been a believer ever since. I take 1 in the morning and 1 with dinner. If I start to feel like I'm getting sick or if I am plagued by post nasal drip due to allergies, I take one with lots of water and feel better, noticeably quick. I highly recommend this product !

This uses the C to my wife because with other forms of vitamin has some problems with the stomach. Since the uses has not complained. Without any particular explanation I generally preferred the vitamins of C NOW who thought they were in good price and offer good results.
Vitamin C + ALA
Posted by dr-alex on Nov 21, 2015 | Verified Purchase
Why AlphaSorb? Higher absorption - "move more Vitamin C through the body over a longer period of time", gentle to the stomach and of course the inclusion of Alpha Lipoic Acid, a truly multi-talented antioxidant "recycling plant!" You see, ALA has the ability to recycle or regenerate other antioxidants that have become inactive, such as vitamins C and E, CoQ10 and it even itself! Recommended serving size is 1 cap/day but when my body's immunity is compromised, I increase the dose to 3 caps/day (1-1-1). Highly recommended.
Excellent Vit C

For anyone but especially a person who has AFS, this is an excellent Vit C taking less adrenal to break down and absorb.
