S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine (SAMe) is a natural compound and methyl group donor that supports the methylation cycle, a process which is essential for many aspects of health. Methylation is fundamental for ridding the body of certain toxins and certain people, such as those with chronic liver disorders, cannot produce adequate levels of SAMe.
SAMe’s effectiveness to support a balanced mood is demonstrated by many clinical studies. SAMe is in fact so effective for boosting a low mood that it is legally registered as a prescription drug in several European countries for mood balance. It is thought that SAMe works by helping to boost serotonin, dopamine and melatonin levels in the brain, low levels of which are commonly associated with mood imbalances such as anxiety and depression. SAMe has also been found to support joint health in osteoarthritis patients as effectively as a popular anti-inflammatory drug by reducing inflammation and protecting joint tissue from degradation.
AOR introduced the first SAMe supplement to Canada in 2000. AOR’s SAMe 400™ provides an effective dosage and a stable form of this valuable compound in an enteric coated tablet for maximum effectiveness.
Take two or three tablets daily on an empty stomach, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. Use for a minimum of four weeks to see beneficial effects for osteoarthritic pain and a minimum of two weeks for mood support.
