Description: SAMe is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is made from combining the amino acid methionine with ATP. It is regarded as a methyl (CH3) that enables a variety of biochemical reactions to occur properly. SAMe is mainly used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, depression, and fibromyalgia.

Indications:

  • Depression
  • Detoxification
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hepatitis
  • Liver cirrhosis
  • Osteoarthritis

Precautions: SAMe is very safe. However, it is not recommended for people with bipolar disorder. It can be used in conjunction with pharmaceutical antidepressants as long as you are being monitored by a physician.

Dosage: Take 400 to 1,200 mg daily.
