Doctor’s Best SAMe has the ability to elevate mood and general brain function. It also helps to relieve joint pain and stiffness. This product also promotes liver function by way of detoxification. Doctor’s Best SAMe contains double strength SAMe for some real oomph.
SAMe (S-Adenosyl Methionine) comes from the amino acid methionine and is necessary for the synthesis of hormones and some neurotransmitters. Although it is used throughout the body, it is particularly important to liver, joints and brain.
SAMe may promote joint function by increasing the production of certain sugar proteins that are the building blocks of connective tissue. Studies indicate that SAMe increases your ability to get around with less stiffness and pain.
SAMe may promote the production of neurotransmitters which elevate mood and enhance the production of phosphatidylcholine for better neurotransmission.
Doctor’s Best states that they use the best quality Italian SAMe that is available. Apparently this gives you the greatest percentage of active S,S from for each serving. The manufacturer states that the production of SAMe generates 2 isomer forms known as S,S and R,S. The S,S is supposed to be the active form and the R,S form is essentially inactive biologically. Italian SAMe is supposed to have the highest percentage of S,S form available.
Three double-blind clinical trials were carried out in 1976, 1987 and 1990 with Italian SAMe. All three trials demonstrated significant improvement in mood and neural functions.
