What is the expected shelf life of Alveo?

Why is Alveo packaged in a glass container?
Glass packaging prevents the gas exchange problem experienced with plastic containers. It ensures that the last drop of Alveo is as fresh tasting and pure as the first. Glass packaging also ensures a maximum shelf life.
If an unopened bottle of Alveo is frozen and then unfrozen, does it keep its potency and herbal values?
As long as the bottle itself was not tampered with and remains still sealed, there should not be any loss in potency or effect of product. However, glass bottles may chip or break when frozen; therefore, it is not recommended to freeze the product in a glass bottle.
