SAMe is a naturally occurring metabolite found in the human body
as well as in plant and animal foods. It is the most active of all
methyl donors and has been compared to ATP in its importance for the
body. SAMe is naturally synthesized in humans from the amino acid
methionine in the presence of the cofactors B12 and folate.
for Health’s SAMe capsules provide 200 mg of stabilized SAMe along
with vitamins B6, B12, and folate as 5-MTHF in order to provide
cofactors for the natural conversions of SAMe to L-homocysteine and
then safely to L-cysteine.
Previously, SAMe was not viable in an encapsulated form due to its
sensitivity to degradation from air and moisture. However, a unique
technology with a patented stabilized powder facilitates the production
of a capsule form of SAMe which prevents its breakdown by stomach
acidity and allows for intact absorption in the small intestine. This
technology also makes possible the inclusion of the B vitamin cofactors
within the capsules.
SAMe is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, the hormone
melatonin, phospholipids, and polyamines, which control cellular growth.
It is also the source of methyl groups inside the nucleus for DNA
methylation, which controls gene expression and masking of genetic
