Product Description
SAMe 200 mg For People or Dogs Pharmaceutical Grade. 60 tablets. 60 servings.
SAMe, also known as S-Adenosyl L-Methionine, is a dietary supplement used for liver support. Our Lignans for Life SAMe is designed for both people and dogs. Each bottle contains 60 tablets of 400 mg of S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine Disulfate Tosylate and a net of 200 mg of SAMe per tablet. Our SAMe is enteric coated, which enhances bioavailability and stability.

SAMe is often recommended for dogs with Canine Cushing's Disease because this adrenal disorder causes stress on the liver and forces the liver to work harder. Supplementation with SAMe, which is naturally occurring in the body, can be very helpful for ailing dogs because naturally occurring SAMe is used up quickly when the liver is overworked.*

SAMe is beneficial for both people and dogs because it supports a healthy liver by improving metabolism in the liver. SAMe is a nutrient that carries and donates methyl molecules necessary to facilitate the manufacture of DNA and brain neurotransmitters. SAMe boosts hepatic levels of the antioxidant glutamine. It is formed in the body by an enzymatic reaction between adenosine-triphosphate (ADP) and methionine. SAMe works closely with folic acid and vitamin B-12 and functions as a methyl donor for the manufacturing of phosphatidylcholine and L-cystein, both of which are necessary for maintaining liver health.

SAMe levels are greatly reduced in the elderly and supplementation can be very beneficial when the liver is stressed over overworked. SAMe contains antioxidants that help reduce oxygen free radicals. SAMe is used for mood support and healthy liver functions. It provides nutritional support for the liver and helps return normal liver function.*

What else is SAMe used for?

SAMe is an extremely versatile product due the fact that it is a methyl donor. It provides essential portions of molecules used in many biochemical processes. Traditionally, it has been used for anxiety and depression, osteoarthritis, and the above mentioned liver health.*

Joint Health Studies have indicated that SAMe can reduce pain, stiffness, and inflammation from joint problems. SAMe is sometimes recommended as a natural aid for Arthritis.*

Depression SAMe is a natural alternative to anti-depressants and studies have indicated that SAMe may work equally as well as antidepressants, presumably because SAMe is used in the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine (feel good neurotransmitters)*

Our SAMe is packaged with nitrogen. This reduces the oxygen content in the package, which helps prevent the breakdown of the product and keeps it fresh for a longer period of time. This helps prevent oxidation.
Note: Keep product refrigerated.

How much SAMe should I take?

Recommended dosage for people is 1 tablet one to two times daily with water, preferably on an empty stomach. If you are taking SAMe for a specific condition, consult a doctor to determine the best dosage.

How much SAMe should I give my dog?

For medium sized dogs 21 lbs to 40 lbs: give 1 tablet per day.
For large dogs 41 lbs to 80 lbs: give 2 tablets per day.
For very large dogs over 80 lbs: give 3-4 tablets per day.
Our SAMe is best for dogs over 20 lbs; however, for small dogs under 20 lbs, give 1/2 tablet per day. When the tablet in cut, it must be given to dogs immediately and the second half must be thrown away. The product loses bioavailability and stability when the enteric coating is cut.
SAMe should be ingested whole and can be given to dog in peanut butter, cheese, a pill pocket, in food, etc. If your dog will not take it, you may cut/crush the tablet, but it must be given to dog right away as it is an enteric coated tablet. It is recommended to give SAMe to dogs on an empty stomach.

Note: Another product to consider is milk thistle for liver support. SAMe and Milk Thistle are often used together for added benefits.
