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.

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.

Wouldn't Be Without It!

I suffer from clinical depression, and this product has made a huge difference to my quality of life. My doctor recommended this brand because of its enteric coating, and iHerb's price makes it a lot more affordable. Started with the regular strength for a few months before going up to this higher dose. Can't recommend it highly enough!
reducing pain for osteoarthritis

After just one week I could feel a significant reduction in my constant pain. I am looking forward to no pain within a month.
Great price and product

This product is so affordably priced compared to the others, and has consistently been excellent quality. Really helps with energy levels and lifting mood. My only complaint is that about every ten boxes or so, one card might be missing an end capsule presumably where the machine fails to drop one in... otherwise, no complaints =)
something not right
Posted by 5423020722571348354 on Aug 17, 2016
I have been taking Sam-e now for 4 years it has been a life saver for me............I ordered my usual sam-e from iherb this month and for some reason it is not working. I have had withdrawal symptoms all my symptoms have come back.........its like its not a genuine product. I ordered another box right away as I usually do because they take a while to come and I always like to have a box at hand. This box is the same I am not feeling any relief. I have written glowing reports about Sam-e Dr Best this is my favourite out of all the ones I have used!! I don't understand this at all. What has happened!?!?
