SAM-e (S-Adenosyl methionine) is an amino acid derivative needed by the body for at least 40 biochemical reactions. It has a reputation as the most effective natural anti-depressant, without any of the unpleasant side effects of prescription drugs. It was first discovered in 1952 in Italy, and naturally occurs throughout the body when you are in good health. Aging processes, nutrient deficiency, sickness and depression can deplete SAM-e levels, indicating a need for supplementation.
SAM-e is involved in the manufacture of hormones, cell membranes and mood regulating neurotransmitters. It is a potent mood elevator, energy enhancer, promoter of cell regeneration, neuromuscular balancer and joint mobiliser. It helps maintain cartilage and may support prevention and repair of liver damage.
Studies show SAM-e may be effective in treating depression, fibromyalgia, joint pain, osteoarthritis, liver dysfunction and migraines.
SAM-e is best taken alongside a vitamin B complex to maximise efficacy and prevent side effects.
SAM-e Side Effects
Both my wife and I use Sam-e, Donna on a regular basis for OA in her knees and myself after heavy exercise sessions or feeling very anxious. Donna has basically stopped taking pain killers (from the day she started using Sam-e), my after exercise pains and aches are nonexistent at least by the next day and the edge is almost immediately taken of my anxiety so Sam-e really works for both of us and as my Doctor says if you find something that works for you go for it.
Using this for a month for mental health. Too soon to say. Unexpectedly a wrist joint issue has totally gone. Had the problem for years. Have joined a gym now i am able to use the hand with no aches.
Instant mood lift ... but ....
I have been taking SAM-e for only a few days now . I decided on only 4 drops morning and night after reading other reviews and to slowly trial the amount I needed .
I noticed a lift in mood the next day and so on .... but .... My Gosh , the taste is unbearable and seems to burn on my tongue too . I don't want to stop taking it , as it may help with my fibromyalgia and moods but I dread the horrid taste each time . It certainly has taken the shine off it for me .
