SAMe (S-Adenosylmethionine) 20 tablets
SAMe is a natural form of bioactive methionine that results when methionine
is converted by ATP and SAMe synthetase. SAMe has a wide variety of benefits
because it is utilized by almost every cell of the body. It is a precursor to
the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinepherine, and serotonin. It is used in
the production and protection of DNA and RNA, and in the production of
phosphatidylcholine, which may benefit cell membrane integrity. SAMe supports
glutathione production and control of damaging cytokines (TNF) and free
radicals, which may protect synovial cells and benefit joint function. In
addition, SAMe may protect proteoglycans (protein cells, composed of keratin and
chondroitin sulfate) and chondrocytes (cartilage cells, that make proteoglycans
and collagen), components of the spongy cartilage tissue.
SAMe is used in the following metabolic pathways: methylation, synthesis of
polyamines, and trans-sulfuration. Methylation is involved in protection or
transformation of other molecules such as DNA and homocysteine. Synthesis of
polyamines results in cell growth, gene expression and neuron regeneration.
Trans-sulfuration is the synthesis of L-cysteine, glutathione and other sulfate
groups, which are involved in liver support and detoxification. In Chinese
medicine, the liver is thought of as the seat of emotion and normal liver
function is thought to be involved in healthy mood. Research has shown SAMe to
support liver enzymes within normal levels.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, 1 or 2 tablets one to four
times daily between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
