promotes liver function
helps decrease pain
This chemical has a number of well-documented positive effects. The most studied are its effect on mood and on joints. In addition, Sam-e has been used for liver disorders, fibromyalgia, and migraine headaches.
SAM-e helps with the formation of joint cartilage, which increases joint function, thereby decreasing the pain in arthritic joints.
SAM-e is also used for liver disorders, including liver damage induced by excess hormones, Gilbert’s syndrome, and cirrhosis. SAM-e has been especially useful in improving Gilbert’s syndrome, a state in which the liver has an unusually elevated bilirubin level without elevations of other liver enzymes. About 5% of the population is affected with this disorder, which is really an impairment of the Phase 2 detoxification (glucuronidation pathway).**
With regard to fibromyalgia, several studies have shown that SAM-e decreases overall pain with a decrease in the number of trigger points, and it improves mood and energy.
SAM-e has also been investigated extensively for use in depression. It combats depression biochemically by increasing levels of serotonin, dopamine, phosphatidylserine, and phosphatidylcholine. Further, it improves the binding of neurotransmitters to receptor sites, thereby increasing their activity. SAM-e has also been used effectively to treat postpartum depression and in drug rehabilitation.
