Description of SAM-e 400 mg, 30 Enteric-Coated tabs, Jarrow Formulas
SAM-e ( S-Adenosyl Methionine )
Longevity, Joint Strength, Liver Detoxification, Mood and Brain Function
- S-Adenosyl Methionine Full Potency
- Pharmaceutical Grade, Stabilized
- Highest Concentration of Active S, S Form
Jarrow Formulas SAM-e 400 pharmaceutical grade, stabilized SAM-e is a full 400 mg elemental SAM-e from 800 mg of SAM-e tosylate disulfate. S-Adenosyl Methionine is manufactured under low temperature and low humidity and is enteric-coated to ensure a biologically active product.
Contains More of the Active S, S Form.
SAM-e (S-Adenosyl Methionine) is a chiral molecule and therefore consists of two forms: (S,S) SAM-e and (R,S) SAM-e. The biologically active form is the (S,S) structure, while the (R,S) structure is biologically inactive.
Jarrow Formulas S-Adenosyl Methionine is made naturally by microbiological fermentation and then specially processed to preserve 68-80% (S,S) SAM-e the highest active level available. SAM-e is an amino acid derivative that has been clinically proven to benefit brain, joint and liver function. Found in all living cells, SAM-e is also called "activated" methionine (an essential amino acid) since it is formed by the combining of ATP with methionine. SAM-e has undergone dozens of trials involving thousands of patients. Researchers studying the beneficial effects of SAM-e have identified the following benefits of SAM-e:
- Joint Strength -
SAM-e supports the production of healthy connective tissue through transulfuration. In this process, critical components of connective tissue, including glucosamine and the chondroiton sulfates, are sulfated by SAM-e metabolites.
- Brain Metabolism -
SAM-e methylation reactions are involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as L-dopa, dopamine and related hormones, epinephrine and phosphatidulcholine (a component of lecithin).
- Longevity -
Methylation of DNA appears to be important in the suppression of errors in DNA replication. Demthylation of DNA is considered a contributor to the aging process. Proper methylation through substances such as SAM-e positively influences longevity.
- Liver -
SAM-e metabolism supports the synthesis of glutathione (GSH) and glutathionine-dependent enzymes (glutathionine peroxidase and glutathionie-S-transferase), which are substances important for liver function.
