Review of Nature Made SAM-e Complete Supplement

1:13 PM

I was super-excited to try the newest offering from Nature Made: SAM-e Complete!  Since I've always been a huge fan of supplements, and have dealt with "mood" issues in the past, this was on the top of my "to try" list.  Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that no studies have really been done on the effects of taking SAM-e while nursing, so I had to pass on taking it myself, and let my husband test it instead.

My husband (who could also benefit from a natural mood-enhancing product) took it as directed for over a week.  It was recommended to be taken before eating and first thing in the morning.  The product did cause him to be a bit excitable, so you definitely wouldn't want to take this if you were wanting to sleep any time soon after.

Since the ingredients in SAM-e responsible for helping you "feel normal" are naturally occuring in the body, the side effects are minimal (if you experience any, at all.)  According to the website: 
SAM-e helps to promote a healthy mood by ensuring a balance of overall healthy brain cell functions. If taken regularly, SAM-e can begin to help in as little as 7 – 14 days. 
My husband is still taking SAM-e, and since it is available at our local Walmart AND Sam's Club (as well as, we'll probably stay stocked up.  I have seen a slight change in his mood, and he has reported that it has helped him jumpstart his day and keep an even level of energy.

You can read all about this product, including details on how it works at the official SAM-e website.
