SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), a compound native to the body, is a critical component of many biochemical reactions, including those that affect brain biochemistry and joint health. SAMe is critical for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, is important for energy production in the brain, contributes to the maintenance of healthy cell membrane function, and influences cartilage metabolism. Added B vitamin co-factors help metabolize and replenish stores of SAMe. NOW® SAMe is enteric-coated, which makes it very well tolerated and protects it from degradation during digestion. This double-strength, mid-range potency reduces the number of pills needed per day and helps manage more severe conditions.
