S-Adenosyl-L-Methioinine, also known as SAMe, aids in some important biological functions. Most importantly, however, is SAMe's function in methylation cycles. Research supports SAMe's ability to support healthy mood function and helps relieve osteoarthritic pain. The methylation cycle is important to numerous body functions, including the production of energy, maintenance of DNA, detoxification, and mood balancing. Research has shown that when the methylation cycle runs into trouble, it can lead to diseases such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition, SAMe helps give the body support in the fight against stress and depression. When the methylation cycles in the nervous system are functioning properly, they are helpful in battling depression. In fact, the power of SAMe to fight depression is such that it is sold as a prescription strength medication in Italy, Spain, and Germany.
