SAM-e (200 mg)
How It Works
SAM-e is a natural compound manufactured by the body and present in all living cells. It is required in over 40 biochemical reactions, helping with a variety of functions, including mood regulation, cognitive function, general nerve conditions, and liver and heart health. Most of the body’s SAM-e is made in the liver. People who are deficient in this nutrient might benefit from supplemental SAM-e. It is necessary for manufacturing important brain compounds like neurotransmitters and phospholipids. It is also involved with the production of hormones (like serotonin and melatonin), proteins, the powerful antioxidant glutathione and various cartilage components. It also appears to help fight premature aging by regenerating new cells, especially in joint and liver tissue. At 800 mg daily, SAM-e helps the body with mood, emotional well-being, energy, joint health and mobility.
Take 1 tablet once or twice daily on an empty stomach with 8 oz. water. For best results, take SAM-e with folic acid and vitamin B12.
CAUTION: If you are taking prescription antidepressants or have bipolar (manic) depression, consult your physician before or during the use of this product. Pregnant or lactating women should consult their health care provider prior to taking this supplement.
