Expiration Date: Jul 2016
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.

Ultimate-E contains all of the natural isomers of vitamin E. Tocopherols provide protection from free radicals and products of oxygenation, including lipid peroxides and singlet oxygen radicals. Gamma-tocopherol inhibits the enzyme cyclooxygenase, whereas alpha-tocopherol does not appear to have a significant effect on this enzyme. Human studies comparing diets supplemented with both gamma- and alpha-tocopherols (more gamma than alpha) to diets supplemented primarily with alpha-tocopherol found more DNA protection in the mixed-tocopherol group than in the alpha-tocopherol-only group.
Antioxidants such as vitamin E are vital to the overall antioxidant capacity in the blood and tissues. Numerous clinical studies have shown vitamin E is beneficial to the cardiovascular system, and recent studies looking at mixed tocopherols have indicated they have a stronger inhibitory effect on lipid peroxidation than alpha-tocopherol alone, indicating a more potent antioxidant effect of mixed tocopherols. Supplementing with Ultimate-E, with its naturally occurring ratio of tocopherols, is an efficient way to supplement the vitamin E molecules – without the addition of soy oil as a filler.
Thorne's Ultimate-E contains pure, undiluted vitamin E. The vitamin E is extracted from a mixture of vegetable oils, including soy oil. However, any potentially allergenic soy residues are removed during the distillation process and, unlike most vitamin E products on the market, Ultimate-E is not diluted with soy oil. Because the tocopherols come from a natural source, the exact tocopherol profile can vary slightly from batch to batch, although extra alpha-tocopherol is added to each batch to standardize the amount of this important tocopherol to 500 IU per capsule.
Take 1 gelcap one to three times daily or as recommended to your healthcare practitioner.
Gelatin (bovine), purified water and glycerin (vegetable source) gelcap, medium chain triglyceride oil.
Beta, Gamma, and Delta tocopherols do not have recognized IU equivalents. Beta, Gamma, and Delta tocopherols vary slightly with this natural product which is weight-adjusted to achieve 500 IU d-alpha tocopherol.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I just started Ultimate-E four weeks ago. I take it 3 a day. My mensus was stopped 11months, but to my surprise, it comes again. I owe it very much. Ultimate-E is highly recomended.
I take this regularly--it is very good for the heart! Very high quality product!
