Helping Americans Find Their Good Moods
In today's fast-paced climate, people are finding it easy for their emotions to get out of balance, leaving them feeling moody and irritable. To help naturally restore a healthy mood, Nature Made today introduced SAM-e Complete at Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Avenue Taxi Stand in New York City. Creating a relaxation oasis in one of America's busiest transportation zones, Nature Made SAM-e Complete polled passengers on their mood and offered tips for achieving a good mood every day.
"This is a challenging time for Americans, and many are looking for ways to achieve a healthy mood in a natural way," said Lynn Laboranti, registered dietitian and consumer education specialist. "Many people don't realize that if SAM-e levels in the body are low, they may feel out of sorts, and may make it difficult to deal with the normal stresses in life. A supplement like Nature Made SAM-e Complete is a safe and effective way to boost the body's production of SAM-e and help achieve a healthy mood every day."
SAM-e (S-adenosyl-methionine) is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps maintain a healthy mood. This molecule can become depleted due to poor diet and age. Certain groups of people, including those with low mood, tend to have lower levels of SAM-e in their bodies. For people with low levels of SAM-e, the most commonly discussed benefit of a SAM-e supplement is a revitalized mood.
SAM-e helps fuel dozens of important reactions in the body. These reactions include the production and metabolism of hormones, neurotransmitters, nucleic acids (found in DNA), proteins and phospholipids (a component of cell membranes). Studies have shown that SAM-e enhances mood by promoting a healthy balance of neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, which are part of overall healthy brain cell functions.
Over two decades of research show that SAM-e is effective in helping to maintain a healthy mood. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reviewed 28 clinical studies with more than 1,500 patients and found SAM-e to be an effective mood enhancer. Nature Made SAM-e Complete is effective without significant side effects such as weight gain and sexual dysfunction, and begins working in as little as seven to 14 days.
