Classified as a prescription drug in Germany, Russia, Italy, and Spain,
SAMe has been the subject of studies on depression at Harvard Medical School, the University of California, and King’s College Hospital in London. What these studies have shown is that
SAMe influences brain chemicals by helping to convert the feel-good neurotransmitters norepinephrine into epinephrine, and serotonin into melatonin. It is also involved in the formation of myelin, the white sheath that surrounds nerve cells. It can improve brain-cell membrane fluidity.
Not an herb, or even a vitamin, SAMe is a substance produced in every living organism on the planet. In fact, our bodies produce about eight grams of SAMe per day. More than half of that amount is produced in the liver. For this reason it has been used effectively as a treatment for liver disease, especially alcohol-induced damage. (See the anti-alcohol antioxidant).
