S-adenosyl-methionine (SAM-e) is produced in small amounts by the human body where it is an important physiological factor in the production of many compounds. However, the body does not always produce adequate amounts of SAM-e (due to a variety of factors, including diet, disease, and aging) and supplementation is sometimes required.
SAM-e is classified as a methyl donor, which help promote chemical reactions involving liver detoxification, neurotransmitter synthesis, and the synthesis of most sulfur containing chemicals and body structures (e.g. such as the antioxidant glutathione and the cartilage that protects our joints). Our SAM-e tablets are carefully enteric-coated for the strongest protection.
