Several studies have shown its ability to reduce pain and swelling in the joints, making it a potential treatment for osteoarthritis. By increasing levels of Serotonin, SAMe may help improve depression symptoms, as imbalances of Serotonin have been liked to depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder or panic. The chemical is currently tested for many benefits related to Serotonin, Dopamine and Melatonin related benefits, such as its impact on memory and learning capacity, sleep, aging, aggression and anxiety, mood or motivation.
The majority of SAMe is produced and active in the liver, hence low levels are known to lead to liver damage. Supplementation may reduce inflammation and dysfunction of the liver in certain cases.
