Question about Sam-e

by Mike

I followed the link in the FAQ section to the article about using Sam-e as a supplement to help fight depression.

It says a daily dose of 800mg is suggested. Is this what is recommended here?? I ask because 800mg a day can get pretty expensive...Sam-e is definitely not cheap.



Hi Mike,

Start with 400mg for 2 weeks according to some experts, and then adjust. Here's a good video on Sam-e dosage from nutrition expert Carroll Reider, M.S., R.D. "To support mood and emotional well being, start with 400mg/day of SAM-e Complete. Clinical studies indicate that benefits are most likely evident after 7-14 days of supplementation."

There is hope!
