I am recommended to take SAMe supplement due to a COMT snip that I have (worrier gene). This is the first SAMe supplement I ordered, so I wasn't sure what to expect. When I feel overwhelmed in stressful situations, I usually have worse focus and mental clarity, and tend to make more mistakes. I started taking it when I feel stressed, and it quickly improves my symptoms in about 30 minutes. I think this is one supplement that I will keep on hand, to use when the times call for it.
quality of product manufacturing is vital for SAM - E
Life extension is a trusted company .
SAM —E has many uses … yes , it’s a safe substitute for antidepressants in many instances to lift the mood in depression but it is also liver protective and is recognised as assisting in promoting bone health & also pain relief.
Many scholarly abstracts arrest to this claim .
LE claims small tablets are well absorbed.
SAM E requires the careful packaging the more expensive brands like LE
provide to maintain potency
I have been taking some cheaper bands of SAMe product and I feel that this brand has a stronger impact on my system. The positive effect on my mood (reduction in depressed feelings) is what I was after and the bonus is the improvement to my liver function. I find that all the Life Extension brand are excellent products.
I suffer from really bad anxiety and depression. Recently, a close friend passed away and my depression was the worst it had ever been. It was scary. Anyone who suffers from depression or anxiety knows its not easy to get yourself to a doctor to get help. Some friends of mine recommended SAMe a long time ago and for whatever reason I decided to look it up and purchase it since it wasn't too pricey.
Here's my absolute honest truth:
30 minutes after taking it along with a B-complex vitamin I felt it hit my system. My muscles on my shoulder blades, spine, and thighs suddenly loosened. I had no idea they had been clenched but it was automatic and without any effort on my part. I'm sure that was the anxiety. The next four days I was so sore in those areas because who knows how long those muscles had been clenched. This may sound strange but I suddenly felt room in my chest and was able to take deeper breaths. For the next 2 weeks I was kind of in limbo. Some good days, some bad but from the 12th day forward I have felt so content and full of energy. I've recommended it to all my friends since they noticed the drastic change in me. It's made a huge difference in all but two of my friends. They said they didn't feel a difference but in all honesty, they're the type to be inconsistent and quit after less than a week.
I'm not saying it'll work for everyone, of course not. But I can tell you that I personally experienced an extreme change just short of a miracle. My mood is consistent now. I've reaped so many benefits and with continue to take this as long as I can. I take it every morning as soon as I wake up with my B-Complex since it helps with absorption.
If your skeptical, try it. Give it 2 consistent weeks then decide if it's for you.
