S-adenosyl-methionine (SAM-e) is a naturally occurring compound in the body which promotes methylation, the process whereby methyl groups (one atom of carbon and 3 of hydrogen) are transferred from one molecule to another. It plays a crucial role in conjunctive tissue synthesis; it eases joint pain, promotes mobility and protects cartilage from damage.
SAM-e is a chiral molecule which exists in two forms: an active isomer (S,S) and an inactive isomer (R, S). All SAM-e products contain these two isomers in varying percentages. The SAM-e that we offer contains 70-80% of the (S,S) form which is the highest level available in a pharmaceutical grade product. Some (too) cheap products contain just 47% or less. The SAM-e we offer is obtained naturally, by microbiological fermentation and without use of solvents. It is specially packaged to ensure optimal stability and biological activity.
SAM-e is a powerful and pluripotent nutrient which can be life-changing when taken at sufficient levels and in the right form. We introduced SAM-e into Europe in 1998 and while its price has now been reduced by over 70%, it remains an expensive nutrient. Methylation is essential for many enzymatic processes and SAM-e is the most active of all methyl donors. Indeed, SAM-e has been the subject of dozens of clinical studies involving thousands of patients.
