Info: 60 Enteric-Coated Tablets (400 mg each)
S-Adenosyl-l-Methionine, also known as SAMe, aids in some important biological functions. It's most important one may be in methylation cycles, which is involved in energy production, DNA maintenance, detoxification, and mood balancing. Research has shown that when the methylation cycle runs into trouble, it can lead to diseases such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
SAMe also helps give the body support in the fight against stress and depression. When the methylation cycles in the nervous system are functioning properly, they are helpful in battling depression. In fact, the power of SAMe to fight depression is such that it is sold as a prescription strength medication in Italy, Spain, and Germany.
