Make sure the SAM-e supplement you take passed our test and quality rating and is right for you!
Isn't your health worth it?
Is SAM-e helpful for osteoarthritis and depression? Which popular SAM-e supplement brands are best? Which failed testing? found that only 7 out of 10 SAM-e supplements selected for review passed quaility testing. No SAM-e was found in one supplement and another provided only 75% of its listed amount of the ingredient. The enteric coating on a SAM-e product for dogs and cats did not properly protect the pill from stomach acid. Nearly all SAM-e supplements are enteric coated.
In this comprehensive report about SAM-e (or SAMe or S-adenosyl-methionine or S-adenosyl-L-methionine), you'll get test results and quality ratings for 15 SAM-e supplements (including 5 that passed our Voluntary Certification Program) and information about one other SAM-e supplement similar to another that was tested. You'll learn:
    • Which SAM-e supplements passed or failed testing 
    • Direct comparisons and quality ratings of SAM-e supplements, including cost comparisons showing you can pay anywhere from 53 cents to over $3 for the same amount of SAM-e -- it pays to compare prices
    • What SAM-e can and cannot do for your health
    • Tips on buying SAM-e and how to properly store it
    • SAM-e dosage for different conditions
