Description…

S-adenosylmethionine, also known as AdoMet or SAMe, is a biochemical intermediate involved in methyl group transfers. S-adenosylmethionine is formed from from adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and methionine, catalyzed by the enzyme methionine adenosyltransferase. S-adeosylmethionine is sold as a supplement under the common names SAM, SAMe, and SAM-e. A synthesized form of SAM-e is considered a supplement in the U.S., but SAM-e has been sold as a prescription drug in parts of Europe for decades. As a supplement, SAMe has been used to treat osteoarthritis, depression, fibromyalgia, and other conditions. Scientific studies are conflicted on the benefits of SAMe as a supplement.
