new dietary supplement called SAM-e ("sammy")
We're getting lots of questions about a new dietary supplement called SAM-e ("sammy")...short for S-adenosyl-methionine.
Some people call it the "new St John's wort" for depression. It's also being promoted for osteoarthritis.
At first, this doesn't seem plausible...but there may be something to it. It's been used for years in Europe as a Rx drug for depression and osteoarthritis.
