Yeah!!! I am so happy! I had posted before how I was taking 400mg of Sam-e with a B complex vitamin every morning. Well besides making me feel happy, hopeful and more like myself, I am losing weight!
I had tried absolutely everything to take off the weight I had gained on Zoloft, coupled with a thyroid imbalance AND perimenopause symptoms!!! Nothing worked. Well, I’ve been taking Sam-e every morning on an empty stomach for about 3 months now and I’ve lost 12 lbs. without changing anything else! I do always try to eat right though and stick to my low-calorie foods list. Although recently, I’ve allowed myself to live it up a little since it’s my birthday! And I still lost weight. This hasn’t happened since my twenties!
My theory is since Sam-e is so good for your liver, this is an indirect benefit of a better functioning liver! My body is metabolizing more efficiently because my liver isn’t so congested. I just feel so much better in every way. My husband has been taking it too now, but for only a week and he said he’s noticed a great improvement in his well-being.
Sam-e is a naturally occurring substance found in our body and tends to decline as we get older. It promotes the balance and availability of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which makes you feel happy. It’s great for depression. It’s also great for the liver because it normalizes liver enzymes. My girlfriend’s acupuncturist put her on Sam-e to bring her out of the woods from hepatitis -and it did! She’s the same woman who told me to start taking it when I was detoxing from prescription antidepressants -and I felt better in 48 hours! It’s worked for us and I encourage anyone to try Sam-e first before going on anti-depressants. It’s a great supplement for the symptoms of menopause or pre-menopause symptoms. I have read that a good liver contributes to virtually zero menopause symptoms! Since using Sam-e I have alleviated my menopausal symptoms. For me, that’s certainly worth it!
