SAMe has multiple mechanisms of action that are used throughout the body
Brain and Mood
SAMe boosts brain cell methylation and facilitates youthful DNA enzymatic actions. These enzymatic actions are required for the healthy conversion of neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin and may account for SAMe's mood-elevating properties. SAMe also helps maintain acetylcholine levels which are necessary for cognitive function.
Liver and Detox
In order to perform its detoxification role, the liver continually performs large numbers of complex enzymatic reactions. SAMe facilities healthy methylation enzymatic processes and boost hepatic levels of glutathione, a critical antioxidant.
SAMe may help to ease inflammation and can support healthy joint mobility and function without side effects.
