SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine) is an amino acid of vital importance to the nervous system given that it is in charge of regulating mood. Its repairing action on the myelin sheaths that cover the axons (cylindrical extensions of the neurons specializing in transmitting nerve impulses) significantly increases nerve sensitivity.
In addition, it increases the production of serotonin and melatonin thanks to the degradation of catecholamines, and 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 at both bone and joint level as its chemical composition provides sulphurate compounds to thereby form glucosamine and chondroitin.
This process increases the synthesis of proteoglycans and, consequently, contributes to improving lubrication in cartilage areas (joints). SAMe also participates in the synthesis of glutathione and is indicated for hepatic detoxification treatments.
SAMe is particularly indicated for treating:
- Osteoarticular problems.
- Hepatic detoxification.
