SAMe (S-adenosyl-L-methionine) is a naturally occurring substance that is present in the cells of all living organisms. It is a direct metabolite of the essential amino acid, L-methionine. S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) is distributed throughout virtually all body tissues and fluids. Concentrations are highest in childhood and decrease with age. SAMe plays an essential role in more than 100 biochemical reactions. It contributes to the synthesis, activation and/or metabolism of hormones, neurotransmitters, nucleic acids, proteins and phospholipids. SAMe is produced in the body by adenosine triphosphate (ATP) activation of methionine. Deficiencies of B12 and folate can result in decreased SAMe concentrations in the central nervous system. Preliminary evidence suggests SAMe might stimulate articular cartilage growth and repair, specifically chondrocyte proteoglycan synthesis. SAMe might also protect against cytokine-induced synovial cell damage.
