The Fast, Natural Way to Relieve the Pain of Arthritis, Alleviate the Discomfort of Fibromyalgia, and Overcome Depression

An estimated 18 million Americans suffer from depression, some 21 million are disabled by arthritis, and 8 million by fibromyalgia, a little-understood debilitating condition in which muscles are achy and tired. Many Americans--most of them women--spend their days feeling uncomfortable. This doesn't have to happen. SAM-e (short for S-adenosylmethionine), a compound that appears naturally in the body, can lift the spirits of someone who is depressed, relieve the aching joints of osteoarthritis, and soothe the sore muscles of fibromyalgia. It works fast and produces no significant side effects.

Although it almost sounds too good to be true, SAM-e is much more than the supplement du jour. Unlike some compounds that have suddenly landed on health store shelves, seemingly out of nowhere, SAM-e was already backed by a great deal of solid science when it appeared on American shores. Clinical studies in Europe validate its effectiveness in relieving depression and arthritis. Additional research suggests that SAM-e may help those who suffer from fibromyalgia. Twenty years of experience in the fourteen industrialized countries that approve its use show that this natural substance is safe and easy to use.

American research has upheld its effectiveness, too. As long ago as 1987, a supplement to the American Journal of Medicine was devoted to SAM-e. More recently labs at Harvard Medical School, Baylor University Medical Center, and the University of California, Irvine, Medical Center, have delved into new uses of the compound. Even thenormally conservative Arthritis Foundation issued a statement saying that SAM-e is effective for relieving pain. And the American Psychiatric Association, which is oriented toward prescription drugs, was intrigued enough about this antidepressant to invite a SAM-e expert to give a symposium on the subject at its 1999 annual meeting.

Many in the media are intrigued and often enthusiastic. In a story highlighted on its cover, Newsweek wrote, "Whatever the mechanism, there is little question that SAM-e can help fight depression." The Los Angeles Times said that "very few researchers dismiss its therapeutic potential." In early 2000, an episode of NBC's Dateline showcased a cheerful woman whose lifelong struggle with depression ended only after she began taking this nutraceutical.

Undeniably, SAM-e is hot. It is now impossible to walk by a health food store, vitamin shop, or drugstore without seeing a sign touting the supplement. One manufacturer estimates that at least one million American households, or about 1 percent of the total, already use SAM-e. The best-selling brand sold in excess of $60 million during the ten months it was available in 1999. Why are people buying SAM-e? Because it improves their well-being.

The SAM-e Handbook explains everything you need to know about SAM-e: what it is, how it works, how to buy it, how to take it, and what results to expect. You will read about the experiences of people who were helped by the supplement. In this book, you will also learn about cutting-edge research that holds out the promise of treating devastating illnesses like liver disease. Most important of all, you will find out if SAM-e is right for you.
