What is SAME?
SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine) is a compound that is generated in the body through an enzymatic reaction involving ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and methionine.
It works in conjunction with folic acid and vitamin B-12 and behaves as a methyl donor. This nutrient transports and donates methyl molecules that are required for the synthesis of DNA and brain neurotransmitters.
Which are the properties of SAME?
It is an amino acid of vital importance for the nervous system as it is responsible for regulating mood. Its repairing action on the myelin sheaths that cover the axons (cylindrical prolongations of the neurones specialising in transmitting nerve impulses) allows nerve sensitivity to significantly increase.
It also increases the production of serotonin and melatonin thanks to degradation of catecholamins, and it therefore has a powerful anti-depressant action. For these reasons, it is also a good supplement for treating cases of persistent depression.
On the other hand SAMe by NOW FOODS also acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic both at bone and joint level as, given its chemical composition, it supplies sulphureted compounds for the formation of glucosamine and chondroitin. This process increases the synthesis of proteoglycans and, consequently contributes to improving lubrication in cartilaginous areas (joints).
SAMe also participates in the synthesis of glutathione and is indicated for treatments of hepatic detoxification.
Who can benefit from SAME?
- People looking to boost their liver health, as SAMe helps to detoxify the liver.
- People who feel nervous, with stress, anxiety, mild depression, with problems to fall asleep, etc.
- Beneficial for people with osteoarticular problems.
