SAMe was first discovered in the early 1970s. SAMe (Sadenosylmethionine) is a naturally occurring compound found in all living organisms. In humans, SAMe is found throughout the body and is involved in many important biochemical processes. As we age, however, the production of natural SAMe declines.
SAMe comes from Methionine, an amino acid found in protein-rich foods. The process of Methylation happens billions of times a second, affecting everything from fetal development to brain function. It regulates the genetic expression, preserves the fatty membranes that insulate our cells, and helpsmodulate the action of various hormones and neurotransmitters, including serotonin, melatonin, dopamine and adrenaline.
SAMe supplementation may help to temporarily reduce aches and pains resulting from overexertion or stress, and may help to support mood health. And because Protocol for Life Balance SAMe is entericcoated, it can safely pass through the acids of the stomach in order to reach the vital areas where it ismost needed.*
Cautions and Interactions
There have been reports of SAMe interacting with antidepressantmedications and increasing the potential for side effects including headache, irregular or accelerated heart rate, anxiety, and restlessness.
SAMe may affect the body's reactions to Levodopa used for Parkinson's disease. However, it might also reduce its effectiveness over time.
People taking SAMe should supplement its use with a multivitamin that contains folic acid and vitamins B12 and B6.*
