Clinical research shows that Natural Factors SAMe elevates mood and has a positive effect on behavior. It also maintains cartilage health and contributes to the production of joint supporting compounds such as Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
SAMe works actively with Folic Acid and Vitamin B12, and together can promote healthy brain functioning. Natural Factors SAMe is specially coated for ease of swallowing and maximum bioavailability. The coating also enhances SAMe’s stability. Caution: Individuals who are using prescription anti-depressants or who suffer from bi-polar disorder should use this product only under the supervision of a health professional.

Cautions

Concurrent use of SAMe with natural substances that are used for depression, like 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) or St. John's Wort, may lead to serotonin syndrome, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's), tricyclic medication, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, dextromethorphan, meperidine (Demerol), pentazocine (Talwin), tramadol (Ultram).
Unless directed by a health care practitioner, the concurrent use of SAMe with medications that raise synaptic serotonin levels is contraindicated.
SAMe is able to methylate levodopa and this could adversely affect the management of Parkinson's disease.
As a natural molecule already found in the body, supplemental SAMe has proved to be very safe for long-term use with hardly any side effects, especially when compared to prescription drugs.
There is a caution for those with bipolar disorder or manic depression. It could worsen the "mania" phase of their depression. However, a small pilot study suggests that SAMe may help boost the effects of anti depressants to help patients when regular treatments fail.
If there are not enough B vitamins available to the body, SAMe could break down into homocysteine, an amino acid that is correlated with heart disease.
With the proper amount of B vitamins, SAMe is re-methylated into methionine rather than homocysteine, so we suggest that anyone taking SAMe ensure they get enough B vitamins, such as found in a good multivitamin or B complex.
