What Is It?
AOR introduced the first SAMe supplement to Canada in 2000. AOR's SAMe 400 provides an effective dosage and a stable form of this valuable compound in an enteric coated tablet for maximum effectiveness. Its effectiveness is well-recognized, being classified as a prescription medication in some countries.
What Does It Do?Primary Uses: SAMe's effectiveness to support a balanced mood is demonstrated in a plethora of clinical studies. SAMe is legally registered as a prescription in many countries for mood balance, and one study showed that SAMe was as effective as a common prescription medication for mood. SAMe may help boost serotonin, dopamine and melatonin levels in the brain. SAMe has also been found to support joint health in osteoarthritis patients as effectively as a popular COX-2 inhibitor drug by reducing inflammation and protecting joint tissue from degradation.Secondary Uses: S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine (SAMe) is a methyl group donor that supports the methylation cycle which is essential for health. Methylation is essential for ridding the body of certain toxins, and those with chronic liver disorders cannot produce adequate levels of SAMe.
Who Should Take It?
SAMe can provide mood support, benefit those suffering from osteoarthritis, and is essential for those with liver disorders to maintain good health.
