What is SAMe?
SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine or S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine) is a naturally occurring compound found in all human tissues 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. For example, methylation is necessary to convert some B complex vitamins in foods and supplements into active coenzyme forms in the body, such as methylfolate and methylcobalamin. 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.
– What is Heptro Daily used for?
SAMe plays many roles in the body. It supports joint comfort, function and mobility in the spine, hips and knees. It also supports a healthy mood and the liver’s normal detoxification processes.
– How does Heptro Daily work?
SAMe circulates throughout the body, even crossing the blood brain barrier, where it affects the synthesis and activation of various proteins, phospholipids and neurotransmitters.
– What is special about Heptro Daily?
SAMe is present in every living cell in the body. SAMe is known as a “methyl donor.” This means that it works by giving up a methyl group to other molecules, a process known as methylation. In this process, a hydrogen atom is replaced by a methyl group, which consists of a carbon atom with three hydrogen atoms attached.
– Why is methylation so important?
Some compounds need to be methylated in order to become active in the body. Methylation can be involved in regulation of gene expression, regulation of protein function, and the modification of heavy metals. Methylation plays an important part in many critical body functions, including the formation of phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) that you need for cell membranes, production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, memory and concentration, and the development of mood enhancing neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. Methylation also supports normal healthy liver function by helping to change toxins into soluble forms that can be processed and excreted by the body.
Why should I take Heptro Daily?
SAM-e is a biological compound found in every living cell of the human body, vital to their function, stability and activity and involved in more than one hundred biochemical reactions and specific processes.
Heptro Daily helps promote healthy mood. So, if your body is not producing enough SAM-e, you might feel blue or have trouble sleeping. Supplementing with Heptro Daily can help and improve your quality of life.
