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.

Made a world off difference - saved my sanity.
Made a world off difference - saved my sanity.
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...

I have been taking it for 2 months now following suggestion from my nutritional GP and I am finding that it does help me. More energy and not feeling as flat as I was. I now have the energy to incorporate more exercise yet was too fatigued before. I will continue to buy it from this site as the price is good and no delivery issues. I started with 1x200 dose for a few days then took 2x 200 until I ran out and then changed to 1x400. I had tried St John's Wort before trying this product (on GP advice) however I had a photo sensitivity reaction to that so stopped that after only 5 days.

I really didn't expect this to work but it does, at least for me. I noticed an improvement from the first day I started taking it. I looked into reasons why it would work so well for me and ended up having a DNA test to confirm what I was starting to suspect from what I have read. I learnt I have a methylation defect and SAMe helps correct the deficiencies this causes. For me it's been amazing.
