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.

Basic Prenatal is designed to be gentle and effective for women who are trying to conceive, pregnant, or lactating. It contains none of the additives found in mainstream prenatal supplements.
Supplementing with a multi-vitamin/mineral formula before, during, and after pregnancy and while breastfeeding can help produce a healthy baby and benefit the mother. For instance, supplementation with folic acid reduces the risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect. Thorne's Basic Prenatal provides the active forms of folate (5-MTHF) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) for optimal tissue-ready use. Basic Prenatal also contains well-absorbed iron bisglycinate, which meets a pregnant woman's increased need for iron while being easy on the stomach and non-constipating. Several of Basic Prenatal's ingredients (including vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin K) have been demonstrated to benefit "morning sickness." Basic Prenatal is manufactured with the purest possible ingredients and without the additives and coatings usually found in mainstream prenatal supplements.Pregnancy is a critical time for optimizing a woman's health and nutrition, important for both for the mother and her baby. Overall nutritional and caloric needs are greatly increased by pregnancy and breastfeeding. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age because the biggest need is during the first trimester, when a woman may not even be aware she is pregnant. A woman who consumes a healthful diet that provides adequate folate can reduce her risk of having a child with a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord. A high-potency multi-vitamin/mineral supplement can sometimes be difficult for a woman to "stomach," particularly during the first trimester of her pregnancy. Therefore, Thorne does not include large amounts of the nutrients commonly known to cause stomach upset. Instead, smaller amounts of these nutrients are included, but in their most tissue-ready and absorbable forms for optimal utilization. Among these are the active forms of several of the B vitamins – pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (vitamin B6), riboflavin 5'-phosphate (vitamin B2), L-5-MTHF (active form of folate), and methylcobalamin (vitamin B12). Because calcium in a large amount can also cause stomach upset, a moderate amount in the highly absorbable citrate and malate forms is used. Additional calcium and magnesium can be supplemented as indicated.

This company has a reputation for making high-quality supplements. I am pregnant and have had a previous miscarriage, possibly due to a clotting disorder I never knew I had (MTHFR) having to do with my inability to absorb Folic Acid from food; so my Naturopath recommended a supplement that contained Folate as 5-MTHF. Thorne was the only company I could find that sold this form of Folate, and I was so pleased to find they include it in their Prenatal. I am entering my Third Trimester and the baby appears to be as healthy as can be. Thank you!

After waiting for a month for this to be back in stock, I tried ordering this product last week and for whatever reason PayPal didn’t send through my payment so my order got cancelled. I have tried to go online again today and it is out of stock - AGAIN!!! This is ridiculous!

I'm primarily taking this for the iron and it seems to be working really well. I can not take an iron supplement alone because of the stomach upset. But this is a great product - !

Good, but I may feel a bit bad during night if I take it when going to bed.
I Love It

This is the best prenatal vitamin that has the methylated form of folate as opposed to folic acid. I have spoken to both a doctor and naturopath and they give this a big thumbs up. Very good price for a great multi. I do find though that if I don't take it with a meal I get a bit queasy.
