SAM-e Beneficial For Pain Relief and Healing

S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-e) is a molecule that is essential for the growth and repair of our cells. When methionine reacts with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), SAM-e is the result.

SAM-e is necessary for methylation which is a biological process that regulates cell health and gene expression. It is involved in the production of numerous hormones and neurotransmitters.

In the U.S., SAM-e can be bought as a nutritional supplement. It is beneficial in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, chronic liver disease, depression, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.

SAM-e can reduce inflammation as well as NSAIDs do, without their adverse side effects. Not only will this molecule not damage cartilage like NSAIDs can, it may help repair cartilage damage.

"More than three decades of solid research support the use of SAM-e to help promote natural improvement in symptoms of osteoarthritis, depression and liver disease. Ongoing research is also revealing its promising potential for those with a number of other conditions."
