About NOW Foods

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

    NOW Foods SAMe Vegetarian Enteric Coated 400 mg - 60 Tablets

    Now Foods SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), a compound native to the body, is a critical component of many biochemical reactions, including those that affect brain biochemistry and joint health. NOW SAMe is enteric-coated, which makes it very well tolerated and protects it from degradation. Now Foods SAMe can help to temporarily alleviate minor joint discomfort resulting from overexertion or stress. Because Now Foods SAMe is also necessary for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, it plays an important role in mood support. Nervous System Support

    What is SAMe?
    SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine or S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine) is a naturally occurring compound found in all human tissue and organs. It is a building block necessary for the production of many compounds produced by your body, and is used in over 35 different biochemical reactions. SAMe actually donates a part of itself to form these new compounds through a process called methylation, or transmethylation. SAMe is one of the few dietary supplements on the market today that combines the benefits of several nutrients into one, because the body uses the substances produced from SAMe for numerous body processes, including detoxification.

    Are there any side effects associated with SAMe supplementation?
    SAMe is a very safe dietary supplement. Minor side effects include nausea and gastrointestinal irritation, probably due to its sulfur content. But these were only noted at very high doses (1200-1600mg), and the symptoms diminished with continued use. Persons suffering from manic depression (bipolar disorder) should not take SAMe without prior consultation with their physician. If you experience any of these symptoms, it may not be the right supplement for you. The mineral Sulfur is not related to sulfa drugs or allergies related to sulfa drugs.

    Why is the dosage information with SAMe supplements so confusing?
    SAMe in its pure form as found in human cells has a very short life span and is rapidly metabolized into other necessary compounds as needed, which is good! However, this natural form does not allow for the production of a stable, effective dietary supplement. It took scientists years to come up with a way to stabilize SAMe so it could be manufactured as a dietary supplement. It was finally discovered that SAMe (S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine) must be manufactured in a stable salt form (for example, as S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine Disulfate Tosylate) to prevent rapid degradation. In this form, you will actually get 200mg of SAMe compounded in a stable form. However, only half of this 200mg is pure SAMe (S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine). Please note that this salt is not a significant source of sodium.

    Are there size or color variations with your SAMe products, and should SAMe be refrigerated?
    Because of the nature of SAMe, NOW takes special precautions when packaging this product. Extensive stability testing was performed in order to create this uniquely stabilized product. NOW bottles SAMe in amber glass bottles to keep light exposure to a minimum, and keep SAMe products refrigerated in NOW's plant until shipping. It is not necessary to keep SAMe refrigerated after purchase, but it will extend the shelf life of the product. The bottle should be kept closed between uses, away from excessive heat and moisture. Because SAMe is a natural product, there can be variations in color, usually ranging from white to pale yellow or tan. This is normal and does not affect the quality of the product:" ":ion

      Definite and alsmot immediate effect on mood. However, 400mg is too much to start if you have never taken this supplement. I got extremely painful stomach cramps that nearly sent me to the emergency room (did this twice). Before I read up on side effects, I tried taking with food (logic that food would make it more tolerable) and it only made the situation much worse. Apparently, this stuff needs to pass the stomach quickly and dissolve mostly in the lower intestine so it doesn't wreak havoc on your stomach. Going to try starting with a much lower dose and following the "take on an empty stomach' directions. This is very powerful stuff, not your typical supplement. Do some research before taking this supplement.

      This SAMe works. I stopped taking it for a day just to test it, and my mood was terrible. I took it again the minute I got home and felt "normal" again. Excellent product if you need that extra boost to feel like yourself instead of like Mr. Hyde.
