SAM-e 200mg 10 tablets trial-size blister - S-adenosylmethionine | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas SAM-e 200 10 tablets :SAM-e is an amino acid derivative clinically proven to benefit brain, liver and joint function. Found in all living cells, SAM-e is called “activated methionine”, formed by the combination of ATP and methionine. Methionine supplementation, however, does not elevate SAM-e. Rather, it elevates toxic homocysteine.
Now you can also try it for yourself in a single blister.
SAM-e has undergone many clinical trials involving thousands of patients. Researchers have identified many structure and function-based benefits of SAM-e involving over 40 biochemical processes. It is a biochemical workhorse with various diverse effects on the body, including improving liver function, enhancing cartilage formation and lifting mood.
SAM-e metabolism supports glutathione (GSH) synthesis and glutathione-dependent enzymes, which support liver function. GSH, the chief antioxidant and detoxifier inside cells, scavenges free radicals produced during carbohydrate breakdown for energy. Taurine is another end product of SAM-e metabolism. GSH and taurine are important for liver detoxification.
SAM-e supports brain function by its methylation effects. Methylation is the transfer of a methyl group (one carbon and three hydrogen atoms, CH3) from one molecule to another. SAM-e is the most important of all methyl-donators in mammalian metabolism. Donation of methyl groups supports numerous metabolic processes including brain function, energy production and DNA metabolism.
Neurotransmitters, substances involved in nerve cell communication, are products of methylation. These compounds include L-dopa, dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine and phosphatidylcholine (in lecithin). There is a connection between SAM-e levels and cognitive health. Conversely, increasing serotonin and dopamine levels contribute to brain health and improved mood. SAM-e works quickly; many people feel the effects within a week.
Methylation from SAM-e is critical for creatine production. Creatine metabolites are important for ADP to ATP recycling, and storing energy for immediate needs. Creatine maximizes physical performance, reduces exercise fatigue and improves recovery after exercise.
A healthy young body manufactures all the SAM-e it needs. However, with age, people are less able to produce adequate SAM-e. This may contribute to declining health on many levels. Fortunately, these disturbances are often mitigated by SAMe supplemention.
Methylation of DNA is an important part of DNA repair. De-methylation of DNA contributes to the aging process. Proper methylation, via substances such as SAM-e, positively influences longevity.
Healthy connective tissue
Research has shown that regular SAM-e supplementation helps improve joint health, and is used in Europe by physicians for the management of knee pain.
Not all SAM-e is created equal
SAM-e exists in 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 inactive. Jarrow Formulas SAM-e is predominantly the active form. It is made naturally by microbiological fermentation and then specially processed, without solvents, to preserve 68-80% (S,S) SAM-e, the highest active level available.
SAM-e is a highly reactive molecule and very fragile. It degrades rapidly under high heat or humidity. Improper handling of SAM-e can cause degradation in a matter of hours. Thus, the manufacturing process for Jarrow Formulas SAM-e is done under low temperature and low humidity, and the tablet is enteric coated and blister-packed. Pharmacokinetic studies show that oral supplementation of SAM-e is most effective when enteric-coated by special gastric fluid-resistant polymers, and results in maximum blood levels.
main characteristics of SAM-e
• supports the lubrication of the joints
• supports the brain function
• supports proper methylation which in turn slows the aging proces of the body
• supports the synthesis of glutathione (GSH) and glutathion dependent enzymes
• essential for detoxification enzymes in the liver
• the most important methyl-donating substance
• supports the production of healthy connective tissue
• blister packed for ultimate protection
- resists stomach acid
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Common foods that are dangerous for our petsLast week we sold SAM-e to a dog owner who had been told by her vet to give it to her dog that accidentally was poisoned eating xylitol.
Xylitol, I asked in disbelief? That sweetener that is recommended by each dentist to use as a chewing gum because it is even healthy for us?
Yes, indeed, xylitol can and will poison your pet as it can't process it and as a result will cause damage to the liver.
After having induced vomiting, and being put on intubation to keep fluids up, the dog could go back home with his owner with the advice to give it one tablet of SAM-e every day in order to heal the liver.
Most of you probably also didn't know either how xylitol can be poisonous for pets. Which begs the question: what foods that we love to eat are poisonous for cats and dogs and should never be fed to them?
If your pet eats any of these things then the best thing to do is to get advice straight away from your local vet. Don't wait until they are developing problems because by then it could be too late. It will certainly be much more expensive. Don't leave them lying around and make sure they are stored away safely in cupboards. Preferably ones your pet can't open!
Here's a list of the most common poisonous foods that can kill your dog or cat.
general health: take 1-2 tablets a day, with water (NOT milk) preferably on an empty stomach preceding a meal or as advised by a qualified physician
For optimal use as a joint supplement, combine SAM-e with JarroSil™ (biologically active silicon)
For optimal use as prevention of hangovers, take before imbibing alcohol
pet (cat/dog): give 1 tablet on an empty stomach. When your pet refuses to ingest the tablet, you may hide it in a snack. Make sure that your pet drinks some water after giving SAM-e to ensure that the supplement is completely swallowed.
Recommended dosage is 20mg/kg bodyweight. Since the tablets cannot be split, the size of tablet closest to the calculated dose should be administered. For short-term use e.g. after poisoningm a higher dosage is not a problem.
