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 our SAMe 200 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 protection. Studies show SAMe may protect liver tissue from injury caused by a number of toxins.
Our SAMe 200 contains 200 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.

An amazing product for your winter blues
An amazing product for your winter blues
I bought this for my husband who has been feeling under the weather with the never-stopping rain and chills this autumn. And WOW! He has been taking one tablet in the mornings from the time we got this (for less than a week!) - he told me he has had the best week! I suspect this product had something to do with this. Though, we did have to increase the dose to 400mg. Another great thing is that it seems to help with his achy joints and bones (after a major motor vehicle accident where he had broken almost half of his bones, he gets quite sore in winter months). Having compared Doctor's Best with other SAMe products on the market, this is also the best value for your buck. 5 stars! If you found my review helpful, please do not hesitate to click 'yes' at the bottom of it. You will also find more reviews on my page!
Horrible stomach pains!

Contains mannitol in the coating which causes bad stomach issues in a lot of people. I am on of the unlucky ones! There are other brands of SAMe on iherb which don't contain this horrible ingredient, which I will try next.

Taking two times a day will help with mood and better relaxation. If under stress, taking 3 times a day will be extremely helpful. My family has use this for many years
A bit of a disaster
Posted by Reviewer2000984 on Feb 14, 2017
I've tried SAMe 6 times over the years: once nothing happened, once my mood went up, and the other 4 times I had most unpleasant side effects - disturbed gut, blurry vision, weakness, fatigue, oversleeping, headache, insomnia. Going by a look around the web, these side effects are pretty common. I'm glad I had only one 200mg pill, tho the effects are still with me 4 days after I took it. I won't be taking it again. Approach SAMe with care.

I have a range of long term health problems that are dramatically improving since starting SAM-e. It has helped me with depression, fibromyalgia and arthritis. I have never had a result like this on any prescribed pharmaceutical drug, it is quite amazing that this supplement is so effective. I am more than impressed with this product!

This is one of the very few supplements I would take with me on a desert island :) It reduced my anxiety level, I eat less, and I sleep better. Take it if you are in search for the optimal "you"!
