SAMe (pronounced “sammy”) is short for S-adenosyl-L-methionine or S-adenosyl-methionine, a natural molecule formed in the body by methionine and adenosyl-triphosphate (ATP). Supplemental SAMe helps to raise serotonin, dopamine, and phosphatidylserine levels.

CAUTIONS: If you are taking anti-depressant medications, consult a health care practitioner prior to taking SAMe in place of or in addition to those medications. Not recommended for use in children. Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not take at night as SAMe may cause anxiety, restlessness, and insomnia. People with bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness) should not use SAMe unless under medical supervision. Possible side effects are: mild gastrointestinal upsets (such as stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and flatulence), anxiety, hyperactive muscle movement, insomnia, and hypomania. When these side effects occur, they often diminish with time or resolve with lower doses or cessation of use. There are no documented cases of allergies to SAMe. Keep out of the reach of children.
