S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) is derived from the amino acid methionine and is one of the most important methyl donors in the central nervous system. Methylation (donation of methyl groups) is an essential process in ensuring the proper function of a number of organ systems. SAMe is involved in numerous biochemical reactions in tissues including the liver, joints and brain. SAMe is also required for the biosynthesis of critical neurotransmitters and hormones.
Supplementing with SAMe
The manufacturing process of SAMe yields two forms, the S,S and the R,S isomers. The S,S isomer is the active form that mediates biochemical activity in the human body, whereas the R,S form is considered to be biologically inactive. The Italian SAMe used in Double-Strength SAMe 400 is processed to yield the highest available percentage of the active pure S,S form on the market.
SAMe and Joint Function
SAMe may enhance cartilage protection and promote the synthesis of proteoglycans, essential components of connective tissue. Clinical studies show an ability of SAMe to enhance mobility and movement, and promote joint comfort.
SAMe and Neural Health
SAMe-catalyzed methylation reactions promote the synthesis of neurotransmitters, which have the potential to promote enhanced mood. SAMe may also upregulate the production of phosphatidylcholine, supporting cognitive function.
SAMe and Liver Function
SAMe enhances liver synthesis of glutathione, an antioxidant. Glutathione promotes detoxification and liver production. Studies show SAMe may protect liver tissue from injury caused by a number of toxins.
Our Double-Strength SAMe 400 contains 400 mg of active SAMe in each tablet. Doctor's Best utilizes only the highest quality Italian SAMe available on the market. This ensures that you receive the most potent SAMe product with the highest percentage of the active S,S form per serving, bar none.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I can see now that I was quite depressed - too depressed and demotivated to get myself to a doctor. Luckily I read about SamE and started taking it. I feel like a different person - I am happy, motivated and energetic - the total opposite of what I was a month ago. Noticed it working after about 1 week-10 days. I take 1 tablet 1/2 hr before food in the morning. I wholeheartedly recommend it. Iherbs price is great and so is their service - just don't try airmail to Australia - I have done that before and it takes weeks...
This amino acid really is helpful when it comes to sleep. I take two of these about one hour before I plan to fall asleep. In our family we all have problems with anxiety, which interferes with sleep. I now fall asleep and stay asleep all night long. Highly recommended!I also take one mg of melatonin, as well.
Very noticable results.

I have a 14 year old English Staffordshire Bull Terrier (dog) who over the past 2 1/2 years has started to develop arthritis in her back hips. Just over a year ago she went to the vet for a 'general check-up', a part of this 'check-up' involved a complete 'blood work' to check how her internal organs were going. Cut a long story short the blood tests revealed that my dog had a 'high count' come back on her liver. After having an ultra sound & a high definition scan the results ,thankfully ruled out cancer. My vet said that there was a (expensive) medication that she could prescribe for my dog in order to lower the levels shown in the blood test ( normal count is between 100 -150 , my dogs liver count was 668 ! )or I could try SAMe tablets. One 400mg tablet a day on an empty stomach. Within 3-5 days there was a marked increase in my dogs general alertness and also a marked improvement in her walking (movement in her back legs/hips). I returned to the vet after 3 months , as requested, to have a repeat blood count done on my dog ....and the count had dropped from 668 to 609 . Every 3 months since then the blood count has continued to drop (currently around 390 -still high ,but it is improving). The affects that her arthritis has had on her has also significantly been reduced. She is a 14 year old dog who since being on the SAMe tablets is now getting around like an 8yo ! I have heard of people saying that they have had great results from taking SAMe ...well I can't comment on the 'human' side of things but I can and will highly recommend it for any dog owner whose dog is having trouble with arthritis , liver trouble or neuro problems related to old age.

I purchased this for my husband as our Doctor recommended SAMe to help him with his PTSD and Anxiety. He was without it for a couple of days and I found his mood changed whilst off the product. So it is working to some extent.
