SAMe Supplement Guide: A Remarkable Substance With Many Uses

SAMe Facts and Information 1. What is it and where does it come from?

SAMe (s-adenosylmethionine) is a naturally occurring longevity nutrient1 that can be produced by the body. It may also be chemically manufactured. As with other substances, aging results in a natural production decline.

Discovered in 1953, SAMe is a precursor to the substances spermidine and spermine. It is manufactured in the body from the the amino acid methionine.

Due to its inherently unstable structure, SAMe is not found in significant quantaties from dietary sources. Therefore, SAMe must be obtained through supplementation.

Athletes may benefit from SAMe's ability to maintain neurotransmitter balance, liver health and cardiovascular health, as well as its ability to neutralize estrogenic compounds. No studies yet exist to suggest that SAMe can minimize estrogen levels as well as pharmaceutical drugs, but theoretically the minimization of any estrogen may drastically potentate the affects of free testosterone on skeletal musculature.
